Kids in need of tooth extractions in Greensboro, NC will find a gentle, knowledgeable care partner in Dr. Isharani. Tooth extraction is always a last resort, reserved for children with teeth damaged beyond repair. The damage can be sourced in trauma or decay, but whatever the case, if a tooth extraction is recommended, Dr. Isharani will explain the reasoning and the procedure, making sure you are comfortable and confident in the decision.
Extraction Due to Decay
Worldwide, decay is the most common need for extraction. But decay begins small, and its symptoms can be easily ignored. For that reason, some patients who are not visiting a dentist regularly may not notice decay until it has resulted in more complicated symptoms, potentially threatening the integrity of a tooth. If decay can progress unchecked, it can breech the inner chambers of a tooth, damaging the tooth’s roots. At this point, irreversible damage may occur, making the tooth unsalvageable. Extraction is always a last resort, and is ideally avoided, because even though baby teeth eventually fall out on their own, they play an important structural role throughout the development of your child’s bite. If the tooth needs to be extracted, Dr. Isharani will talk you through the procedure and the options for restoration, protecting your child’s smile and keeping them safe.
Extraction Due to Gum Disease
Gum disease is another common condition, especially for patients who do not see the dentist regularly. If left untreated, gum disease can progress and become irreversible, damaging the structural supports of your tooth and deteriorating bone structures. This will loosen the tooth, and they can eventually begin to fall out early, or need extraction. Working with Dr. Isharani can help make sure this process occurs safely and with minimal discomfort. She can extract the compromised tooth and talk you through restoration options.
There are many more reasons a child might need to have a tooth extracted. Every patient is different, and Dr. Isharani can talk with you about your goals, and how she can help protect your child’s smile.
