It is always our goal here at Children’s Dental Group to avoid having to remove one of your child’s teeth. Sometimes, however, it is unavoidable. And when you need our Eagle Rock tooth extraction, we want you to know that every effort is made to ensure that the experience is a comfortable one, either nearly or totally free of pain.
Baby (primary) teeth fall out on their own, of course. There is a certain schedule that can be predicted. And if everything goes as planned, that is precisely what will happen. Dental plaque and tartar are the most common enemies of your child’s teeth. When those bacterial substances erode your her or his precious tooth enamel, a cavity forms. If that cavity is filled in a timely manner, the outcome will usually be a positive one. The complications arise when the cavity is allowed to grow larger, without treatment, or one tooth ends up suffering multiple cavities that weaken the structure of the tooth beyond the ability to effectively repair. It is then that our Eagle Rock tooth extraction is the solution. With the gentle application of local anesthesia, your child should be able to feel at ease. That’s the good news. The better news is that your child will not lose a tooth forever, because eventually it will be replaced with an adult (permanent) one. There are two negative aspects to early loss of a tooth, though. First is that your child will have empty space where that tooth was, and that could expose him or her to feeling self-conscious or to the comments of other children. Second, the other teeth on that jaw can shift, leaving insufficient room for the adult tooth.
