At any age, a tooth extraction can sound terrifying. We always strive to keep your child’s natural teeth healthy over time, but sometimes removing a tooth is the best way to prevent infection and protect the overall oral health of the child. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed and cannot be saved by a root canal, are fractured beyond repair, or are crowding other teeth and the child is preparing for orthodontic treatment. Nitrous oxide is available at Kids Choice Pediatric Dentistry to help keep your child completely comfortable throughout the procedure.
