Dentist in Greensboro, NC Recommending Tooth Extractions in Children as a Last Resort Only

Dr. Sona Isharani and her team’s primary goal at Triad Pediatric Dentistry in Greensboro, NC is to assist every child in the development and maintenance of healthy teeth. When a child has a cavity, tooth decay, or gum disease, every step is taken to restore the damaged tooth or gum tissue, but, in some cases, this is not possible. When this happens, Dr. Isharani provides safe tooth extractions that will allow for the child’s oral health to remain intact. Tooth extractions are performed as a last-resort measure, and she takes great care to make sure the process is performed as safely and comfortably as possible.

The Last Resort

The decision of having a child’s tooth extracted is always a last resort. A dentist may jump to this choice because they run a busy office or don’t feel comfortable performing other procedures which may save the tooth. If you have been seeing a dentist that you feel is jumping the gun on recommending a tooth extraction for your child, it is always important to get a second opinion. Dr. Isharani understands this and will investigate all available options before recommending a tooth be extracted.

What Can Happen Post-Extraction?

When a tooth is extracted from a child, it could lead to remaining teeth becoming misaligned, leading to an imperfect bite. An imperfect bite could lead to damage to the remaining teeth later. This can, of course, be prevented through additional dental work, including an implant or a dental bridge. This is one reason why an extraction should be considered last. The additional work that may be needed to preserve your child’s smile could be extensive and cost you more in the long run.

When Would an Extraction Be Necessary?

A tooth extraction should only be considered when a tooth has become completely unrestorable. Otherwise, restorative work should be considered including fillings or crowns. A tooth may become unrestorable if decay within the tooth has gone rampant and has destroyed the tooth. As with all other oral health issues, this can be avoided through proactive care, regular dental visits, and healthy oral practices at home including regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing.

Success Story

Sona J. Isharani, DDS
Rating : 5 5 Stars
Deirdre B.

We selected this practice based on a wonderful presentation given by Dr Sona at a moms’ group I’m a member of. She left such an impression that my husband agreed we’d give her a shot.

The staff was extremely kind and professional! With our daughters being only 12 months old, I was thoroughly impressed with her patience and loved the fact that the exam was conducted while they were in my lap as I sat knee to knee with Dr Sona as opposed to attempting to keep someone so little still in a standard examination chair.

We look forward to our next visit and with time, we know the girls will also!
