What is a Pediatric Dental Extraction?

A pediatric dental extraction is a simple procedure that removes a tooth from your child's mouth. The most common reason for a pediatric dental extraction is to fix the crowding of the teeth. This happens when the mouth has insufficient space for all teeth to fit comfortably. Sometimes, your child's teeth may be removed to make room for braces or other orthodontic treatment.

The team at Pediatric Dentistry of Horizon West is dedicated to preserving your child's oral health for as long as possible. However, there are circumstances when it is in your child's best interest to have a tooth extracted. Whatever the reason for the extraction, we are committed to ensuring the procedure is safe and comfortable for them.

What to Expect During the Extraction Process

A dental x-ray is a quick and painless way for your dentist to see what's happening inside your child's mouth. The x-ray can help the dentist diagnose problems like tooth decay or infection. During this stage and other subsequent appointments, Dr. Hany Azer welcomes you to accompany your child to the dental office. This reduces anxiety and lets him speak to you directly about the findings and the treatment.

What is the healing timeline after a pediatric extraction?

The healing timeline for a pediatric extraction will vary depending on your child and the extent of the procedure. However, in most cases, the child can go home the same day as the procedure and should expect some discomfort and swelling for a few days afterward. The extraction site will typically heal within one to two weeks.
