Extractions

Extractions

Sometimes, the best option for your child is to remove a tooth. If the tooth is significantly damaged or decayed, impacted or stuck in the mouth, has had trauma causing dental complications, or, in some cases, if the tooth is in the way of planned orthodontic treatment, Dr. Anya may recommend an extraction. Extractions in pediatric patients are fairly simple and typically are relatively fast to complete. After the procedure is completed, our office will give you specific instructions for the rest of the day and your child can typically resume their normal day-to-day activities in about 24 hours.
