Gentle dental extractions for kids provide immediate pain relief and supports a healthy smile

Modern dentistry has advanced to where we as dental professionals can rebuild a portion of a tooth or an entire tooth in a way where it looks, feels, and functions no differently than a healthy, natural tooth. With that being said, there is still no “lab made” tooth that is superior to the “real deal.” Every effort is made to save natural teeth. Routine oral hygiene visits to Little Pearls Dentistry for Children in Lansdowne, Virginia, and consistent oral care at home go a long way to prevent the leading causes of tooth loss: dental decay and gum disease. 

Even so, extractions may still be necessary. Not all badly damaged or deeply infected teeth can be saved with interventions such as pulpotomy or pulpectomy (baby root canal therapy). In these cases, our gentle approach to removing the tooth may be necessary to relieve the pain that often characterizes deep decay, inflammation, and infection. 

The process 

Led by Dr. Mike, our team of pediatric dentists uses light-touch techniques, pain-relieving medications, and relaxing sedative options to remove a tooth painlessly, efficiently, precisely, and safely.

Benefit from proactive, specialty care

As partners in pediatric patients’ health, we monitor the development of the teeth at each visit. Our team’s keen eye, skill, and advanced diagnostics pinpoint problems early.
