When Should a Child Have Tooth Extraction?

Several common reasons may call for child tooth extraction, including failure of baby teeth to fall out, infections, and crowding problems.

Failure of Teeth to Fall Out

Baby tooth removal becomes essential for your child when a permanent tooth grows behind the primary tooth instead of pushing up from under the primary tooth. Often, this prevents the primary tooth from falling out on its own. Our expert dentist ensures the best dental care during your child’s tooth extraction procedure.

Infection

Under the hard layer of your child’s teeth lies a soft substance called the dental pulp. Dental trauma or deep cavities can damage dental pulp, causing an infection. Toddler tooth extraction is the only solution when the infection gets worse. 

If your child experiences tooth sensitivity, pain, redness, and swelling, schedule an appointment with our dentist for a checkup. KoP Dental™ provides immediate treatment depending on the severity of infection to relieve pain. If child tooth extraction is needed, we will make the process as quick and easy as possible. 

Crowding Issues

Baby tooth removal becomes necessary when primary teeth are crowded together, preventing permanent teeth from coming in. Sometimes, two baby teeth are crowded in the space of one permanent tooth. If one tooth falls out but the replacement tooth cannot erupt properly due to the other baby teeth, child tooth extraction is needed. Crowding issues are present with permanent teeth as well, requiring surgical removal.

I have been a patient for over 20 years at King of Prussia Dental and had to briefly leave their practice after a change in our dental insurance.
