Occasionally, preserving the tooth is not an option. In cases where there are issues such as infection, abscess, or trauma, an extraction may be needed. Extractions may also be recommended if your child has spacing problems, such as crowding, or if space is required for orthodontic treatment like braces. With the use of the latest dental technologies and techniques, extractions can be performed quickly, gently, and safely.
Unliteral and bilateral space maintainers may be used to prevent movement of teeth after an extraction.
