Children’s Tooth Removal in Las Vegas
We may recommend tooth removal for either baby teeth or permanent teeth. Some of the reasons our dentists may suggest tooth extraction include:
- Significant Damage or Decay: If a tooth has been hit hard by tooth decay or physical trauma, tooth removal may be more effective than hefty restorations.
- Overcrowding: Tooth extraction can free up space in the mouth to create a healthy, straight, and beautiful smile.
Quick and Easy Procedure
Whether your child is having baby teeth or permanent teeth pulled, their comfort is our number one priority. Parents are welcome to choose a form of sedation to help their children relax. Either way, your child will be given one-on-one attention and gentle care during their tooth extraction.
When we need to remove baby teeth or permanent teeth, our experts can complete the procedure in just a few minutes, and often with no pain at all.
After the completion of the tooth removal, our Summerlin dentists will apply gauze to the site, which should be held in place for at least one hour. We recommend your child applies ice to keep swelling down. We also recommend:
- Eating soft foods
- Avoiding using straws
- Limiting physical activity
Just 24 hours after having their teeth pulled, your child can resume regular activities.
