Although we do everything we can to keep our mouths healthy, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable. Our team at Carson City Pediatric Dentistry makes sure that your child feels as comfortable as possible throughout the process. Dr. Kevin Olson and Dr. Jeremy John at Carson City, Nevada, make sure that each tooth extraction is as painless as possible. If you have any concerns or questions about child tooth removals, please call (775) 461-3800 so we can get you in contact with either of our dentist.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

Our dentist and team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call (775) 461-3800 or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!
