When your child’s teeth won’t come out on their own, our dental professionals are there to lend a helping hand. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer tooth extractions and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What is Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extraction, or the removal of a tooth, is a common and often times necessary dental procedure. Parents often have the idea that their children’s baby teeth will always fall out on their own when they’re ready, but sometimes a dentist needs to intervene. Tooth extraction may be necessary if your child’s teeth have extensive decay, an infection, crowding, or will not fall out on their own (over retained). If you believe your child might need a tooth removed, we encourage you to contact us and schedule an appointment with Dr. Erika Venn today. She’ll be happy to examine your child’s teeth and develop a treatment plan to help them get their healthy smile back.
Why Do Teeth Need to be Extracted?
There are many different reasons why a tooth may be extracted. The most common reasons our patients get a tooth removed include:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Tooth infection
- Preparation for braces
- Growth of permanent teeth behind baby teeth
