Pediatric Tooth Extractions Ottawa
Does My Child Need A Tooth Extraction?
Dr. Karami may determine that your child needs a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some primary teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
What Happens If A Baby Tooth Needs To Be Extracted?
When a primary (baby) tooth needs to be extracted and the adult tooth is not ready to come in Dr. Karami would often recommend placing a space maintainer to keep the surrounding teeth from shifting so the adult tooth can take its proper place.
