Pediatric Dental Extractions
At Westgate Smiles, we always strive to preserve the health and the teeth for all our patients, even when the tooth in question is a primary tooth in a pediatric patient. However, there are certain situations in which dental extractions of a child’s tooth may be necessary. This can be a worrying time for parents, especially if they do not understand why an extraction may be necessary or if they are concerned about the possibility of a surgical extraction for their child. As part of our comprehensive care for patients both young and old, we seek to alleviate parents’ concerns by answering some of the most common questions about extractions for younger patients.
