Does your child need to have a tooth removed? The Gentle Care Pediatric Dentistry team is here to help. We are proud to offer teeth extractions to serve families in Peekskill and Cortlandt Manor, New York.
While we want your child’s baby teeth to fall out naturally, sometimes your child may need a tooth extraction to help maintain their overall oral health. At Gentle Care Pediatric Dentistry, we offer teeth extractions to children who need to remove one or more teeth. Schedule an appointment at your local Peekskill pediatric & orthodontics dentist to ensure your child receives the care they deserve. For your child’s comfort, we offer sedation options.
Throughout your child’s dental development, they will have two sets of teeth: primary teeth (also called baby teeth) and permanent teeth. Your child’s baby teeth are an important step in their overall dental health development. Baby teeth are best left to come out on their own as they make way for your child’s permanent teeth. However, in some cases, our dentist may recommend removing one or more baby teeth. Our dentist will examine your child’s mouth to assess the health of the tooth and determine the appropriate treatment.
If we remove one or more of your child’s teeth, our dentist may use a space maintainer to preserve the space for the permanent tooth to erupt. Sometimes when a tooth is removed, the teeth on either side of the gap can drift into the open space, keeping the permanent teeth from erupting. A space maintainer will help maintain your child’s natural bite and prevent further dental concerns.
At Gentle Care Pediatric Dentistry, we offer sedation dentistry to make sure your child is as comfortable and relaxed as possible during the extraction. The sedation options available include:
