If your child has a tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed, they may require a tooth extraction. Our caring team will make sure your child is comfortable while Dr. Nathan Sprenger or Dr. Andrew Stucki gently removes the tooth. If you have any questions for our dentists about pediatric tooth extractions in Tucson, Arizona, call Oro Valley Pediatric Dentistry at 520-297-5900.

If a tooth has been damaged past the point of repair, a tooth extraction might become necessary. Our dentists will assess the situation to determine a proper treatment plan. Your child may need a tooth extraction if:

  • Severe decay has occurred
  • A baby tooth is in the way of a permeant tooth
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment is needed
  • Extreme damage, trauma or infection has damaged the tooth

Our dentists and team are trained to keep your child calm and comfortable while they are having a tooth removed. We work gently and efficiently to make sure the tooth extraction process goes as smoothly as possible and with as little pain as possible. We will use a local anesthetic to numb the area. If necessary, we will loosen the tooth root from the surrounding gums to make extraction easier.

Our team will give you detailed instructions to best care for your child’s mouth following the extraction. We want our patients to recover as quickly so they can enjoy their healed and healthy smile.

If you have any questions about pediatric tooth extractions or would like to schedule your child for an appointment, please give us a call today. We look forward to helping your child regain a healthy smile.
