Teeth Extractions

At Smiles for Maple Valley, our commitment to pediatric dentistry extends to providing comprehensive and compassionate care, including kids' teeth extractions when necessary. While the prospect of a tooth extraction can be concerning for both children and their parents, our experienced dental team, led by Dr. Narges Lotfi, ensures that the process is handled with utmost care, professionalism, and a focus on the child's well-being.

Kids' teeth extractions become necessary in various situations, including severe decay, advanced gum disease, or the presence of crowded teeth. Dr. Lotfi carefully assesses each case, considering the overall dental health of the child and exploring alternative treatments when applicable. The decision for extraction is made with the child's best interest in mind, aiming to preserve oral health and promote proper dental development.

Open and clear communication with parents and caregivers is a fundamental aspect of our approach to kids' teeth extractions. Before the procedure, Dr. Lotfi discusses the reasons for extraction, addresses any concerns, and outlines the steps involved. This ensures that parents are well-informed and comfortable with the recommended treatment plan, contributing to a collaborative and supportive dental care experience.

Local Anesthesia for Minimal Discomfort

To minimize discomfort during the extraction procedure, local anesthesia is administered. This ensures that the child experiences minimal pain or sensation during the extraction process. Our team is trained to handle pediatric patients with sensitivity, providing reassurance and support throughout the procedure.

Post-Extraction Care and Follow-up

After the extraction, parents receive detailed aftercare instructions to promote optimal healing and prevent complications. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor the child's recovery and address any questions or concerns that may arise. Our commitment to ongoing care extends beyond the extraction itself, emphasizing the overall well-being of the child.
