At our office, we offer both simple and wisdom tooth extractions to remove problematic teeth and give your little one a pain-free, healthy smile. Simple extractions are used to remove teeth that have been damaged beyond repair and cannot be saved with another means of restorative dentistry, such as a filling, crown, or root canal.

We offer space maintainers to ensure that your child’s oral development remains on track even after a tooth is extracted prematurely.
