Simple Extractions in San Marcos, CA
After determining that a tooth extraction is necessary, we will discuss the treatment with you. Teeth are most commonly extracted due to:
- Interference with the growth of a permanent tooth
- Severe trauma or decay
- Presence of an extra tooth
- Orthodontic reasons
In some cases, we may recommend replacing the extracted tooth with a space maintainer to keep the teeth from shifting and creating problems with chewing, alignment and overall dental health. Most tooth extractions are very routine procedures and are very safe. We understand, however, that there is often considerable anxiety associated with extractions, so we here at Pediatric Dentistry of San Marcos will provide you with a variety of options to make sure your child is as comfortable as possible.
The team of dental professionals here at Pediatric Dentistry of San Marcos is highly trained and very experienced in providing children of all ages, including even special needs kids, with outstanding pediatric dental services and quality, comforting care. Most dentists recommend children start visiting the dentist before their first birthday so they will be comfortable with dental care and will eventually develop healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.
