Here at Pediatric Dental Specialists of Western Colorado in Fruita and Grand Junction, we make every effort to save a viable tooth, however, there will always be some situations in which it is in the best interest for your child to remove a damaged or diseased tooth.
Reasons Tooth Extraction is Necessary:
- Infection in the tooth
- A tooth abscess
- Severe crowding of teeth
- Tooth is broken
- Tooth is causing other teeth to come in wrong
After a careful examination accompanied by digital X-rays, our pediatric dentists may suggest removing a tooth if any of the above or other concern is present. Digital X-ray images can usually depict the shape and position of the tooth in questions along with the surrounding bone structure.
The caring team of professionals at Pediatric Dental Specialists of Western Colorado are dedicated to ensuring your child’s visit is as comfortable as possible. If a tooth extraction is being considered for your child every option will be thoroughly discussed with you and any questions you have resolved prior to the start of your care.
