Questions about tooth extractions

Why might my child need a tooth extraction?

Tooth extractions in kids are often necessary for reasons like overcrowding, decay, impacted teeth, or misalignment. Sometimes, a baby tooth may need to be removed if it’s not falling out on time to make way for permanent teeth.

Do you remove wisdom teeth?

Our tooth extraction dentists focus on removing baby teeth. Adult teeth extractions are typically referred to an oral surgeon.

How do you ensure my child’s comfort during an extraction?

Your child’s comfort is our priority. We use gentle techniques and offer various sedation options, including laughing gas, IV sedation, and local anesthesia. Our caring staff takes the time to explain the process in child-friendly terms to ease any fears.

What are the aftercare instructions after the extraction?

Post-extraction care includes soft foods, avoiding rinsing or sucking, and gentle brushing around the extraction site. Our West Orange tooth extraction dentist will provide detailed instructions to help your little one heal quickly.

Can my child eat normally after a tooth extraction?

We recommend soft foods and avoiding hot or spicy items for a few days post-extraction. It’s also important to keep the extraction area clean and avoid chewing directly on it.

Caring for your child’s smile and well-being

At Dentistry for Children of West Essex, we know that dental procedures can be scary for children, so we use fun language to explain treatments and manage anxiety. With over 40 years of experience, we know that every child is unique, and we take the time to make each one feel safe and understood.
