Although our goal is to keep teeth when possible, sometimes it is necessary to extract a tooth. This can be due to extensive decay, dental crowding or if a wobbly tooth is refusing to fall out on its own. Extractions should not be a reason to create anxiousness in your child and we will do everything we can to make the appointment go as smoothly as possible. Often we suggest the use of happy gas (Nitrous oxide) in these appointments to calm your child’s nerves and to help make the treatment a happy and stress-free experience.
