What Types of Extractions Do You Offer?

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. The extraction process usually takes only a few minutes. Your child’s tooth will be numbed, then Dr. Sam will use specialized dental tools to wiggle it loose.

Does My Child Need a Baby Tooth Extraction?

Extensive tooth decay indicates that a tooth may not be able to be saved with a filling or crown.

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