Why does my child need teeth extracted?
We understand that the idea of your child having a tooth extracted can be very stressful. As parents, your priority is to keep your child happy, healthy, and free from any unpleasantness.
Dr. Goel and the team at Woodin Creek Dental always have your child’s best interest and comfort in mind during any treatment. Extractions can be difficult for anyone, and particularly for children who may not be able to understand what is happening to them.
You have our assurance that we will always use the most conservative approach when it comes to any dental treatment. If we recommend that your child have a tooth extracted, it means that it is the only option available to make sure that their oral health is protected.
It may be that your child has a baby tooth that is preventing the permanent tooth from erupting properly. It is far easier for us to remove the baby tooth now, so that we can avoid having to deal with misaligned teeth later.
At Woodin Creek Dental, we value the trust you place in us for your child’s oral health care. We will always discuss all alternatives with you so that you understand exactly why we recommend certain procedures.
