Overview of Teeth Extractions
Tooth extractions, while sounding daunting, are sometimes an essential part of maintaining a child’s oral health. Some reasons include:
- Decay and Damage: Severe cavities or tooth damage cannot be repaired with a filling or crown.
- Orthodontic Reasons: Removal of teeth to make room for proper alignment during orthodontic treatments.
- Impacted Tooth: When a tooth fails to erupt through the gums properly, it may need to be removed.
- Overcrowding: To allow for the healthy growth of neighboring teeth.
Types of Teeth Extractions
Child tooth extractions fall mainly into two categories:
- Simple Tooth Extraction: This process usually uses local anesthesia. The dentist gently loosens the tooth with a tool and then carefully removes it with forceps.
- Surgical Tooth Extraction: More complex; this procedure is usually done for teeth that might be broken at the gum line or haven’t fully erupted. It might involve making a small incision into the gums.
