Pediatric Tooth Extractions in Succasunna, NJ
Are you looking for a specialist to perform your child’s tooth extraction? Dr. Julia Springfield Polomski, the board-certified pediatric dentist at Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, specializes in pediatric dental care, including tooth extractions, in Succasunna, NJ.
When Is a Tooth Extraction Needed?
Our goal is to preserve and maintain healthy teeth whenever possible. However, extraction may be the best treatment option for:
- A baby tooth that is preventing an adult tooth from erupting
- A tooth that is severely decayed or infected
- A tooth that is cracked, loose, or otherwise damaged through trauma
After your child’s procedure is complete, we will provide detailed home care instructions. Giving your child a popsicle can help prevent them from biting their cheek or tongue while the anesthesia wears off. We usually recommend a soft diet for two days after tooth extraction.
