Comfortable, Anxiety-Free Teeth Extractions for Plano, TX
One of the most common dental procedures performed in older children is the extraction of wisdom teeth, also known as third molars. Children can also require tooth extraction due to serious dental injury or extreme bite problems. At the Plano pediatric dental practice of Dr. Catherine Judd, we’ll make sure that your child’s tooth extraction is as anxiety-free as possible.
When is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Needed?
Wisdom teeth can cause a number of problems when they don't erupt properly or become impacted. If they fail to erupt, they can grow sideways and put pressure on the rest of your child’s teeth. They can also fail to erupt all the way, leaving your child’s gums exposed to complications and causing discomfort. These types of problems are common, and wisdom tooth extraction from Dr. Judd in Plano can help your child avoid more serious issues down the road.
Comfortable Experience with Sedation Dentistry
Dental extractions often bring anxious thoughts for both children and parents. However, with the use of anesthesia and management techniques, the extraction procedure will be a comfortable experience. Your child will feel pressure during the tooth extraction, but he or she should not feel any pain. The entire dental extraction procedure will be explained to your child in “kid friendly” terms. We expect your child to be pleasantly surprised with the ease of the entire experience.
