Our pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Care will do everything in their power to save your child’s tooth during a dental emergency.
However, sometimes the best course of action is tooth extraction. For example, a tooth may have a large cavity that can’t be fixed with a dental filling or crown. Your child’s dentist may also recommend emergency tooth extraction if the tooth is too fractured to be repaired by a dental crown or other restoration.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth get their name because these third molars don’t emerge until your child is in their late teens to early twenties. Unfortunately, many of our teenage patients require wisdom teeth removal when there isn’t enough space in the jawbone to accommodate extra teeth. Our pediatric dentists will be able to determine the best plan of action by examining your child’s dental x-rays. Our dentists’ goal is to prevent wisdom tooth pain before it happens.
We are dedicated to helping your child maintain a beautiful healthy smile!
If our dentists see impacted wisdom teeth (teeth coming in at an angle) they will suggest a procedure to remove them. If your child’s wisdom teeth are coming in straight and there is enough room in their jaw for them to emerge, no action is required. Not all teenagers need wisdom tooth extraction.
