In children, teeth most often need to be removed because of spacing issues or infections, but this procedure doesn’t have to be complicated.

With advanced techniques, a range of sedation options, and allowing parents in treatment rooms, your child will feel safe and comfortable from beginning to end.
With age comes wisdom… and wisdom teeth! They’re not always a problem. But when they are, they need to be removed. The difficulty of this procedure depends entirely on your specific case. But whatever your needs are, the team at Kids Teeth can make you feel comfortable and secure during the extraction. We’ll also provide comprehensive instructions to follow before and after treatment to put you in the best possible place to heal and get back on your feet.
When your child’s tooth is extracted before normal exfoliation due to infection, the teeth next door can move into the space of the extracted tooth, blocking out the adult tooth from coming in. In this case, Dr. Zee will recommend a space maintainer appliance to keep the space from closing. This will help minimize the time your child will be in braces in the future.
