Dr. Sam and the rest of the Bright Pediatric Smiles team will always do everything possible to help teenagers avoid the need for tooth extraction. However, sometimes it’s the right choice to keep their smiles healthy and safe. For instance, we may recommend this service if:
- Orthodontic treatment is necessary but there isn’t enough available room in the mouth to accommodate tooth movement
- Advanced tooth decay is present and can’t be successfully treated with a crown or filling
- A traumatic dental fracture or similar physical injury has occurred
Is your son or daughter nervous or uneasy about their upcoming appointment? Tell them not to worry – sedation dentistry is available to create a calm, relaxed environment. Their comfort is our top priority!
