Pediatric Tooth Extractions at Floss Academy in West Loop Chicago

What are Pediatric Tooth Extractions?

At Floss Academy, we understand the concerns parents might have about pediatric tooth extractions. This procedure involves the safe removal of a child's tooth, often necessary due to decay, infection, orthodontic needs, or trauma. Led by Dr. Deric and Dr. Amanda, our approach is compassionate and child-friendly, ensuring your little one's comfort and safety. We focus on making this experience as stress-free as possible, with a commitment to maintaining your child’s oral health and supporting their overall well-being.

The Benefits of Pediatric Tooth Extractions

Pediatric tooth extractions at Floss Academy offer several key benefits:

Relief from Discomfort

As a parent, you want your child to feel their best. One of the immediate benefits of tooth extraction is the relief from pain and discomfort your child may be experiencing. We understand how distressing tooth pain can be for a child, and removing the problematic tooth can bring much-needed comfort.

Preventing Dental Complications

Removing a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged is essential in preventing further oral health complications. It can stop the spread of decay to adjacent teeth and gums, and in cases of overcrowding, it can facilitate the proper eruption and alignment of permanent teeth.

Preservation of Overall Oral Health

Pediatric tooth extractions contribute significantly to the long-term health of your child’s mouth. It's a preventive measure that can avert more serious dental issues in the future, promoting a healthier dental environment as your child grows. If your child is getting a tooth removed from overcrowding, it also prevents the risk of crooked or misaligned teeth.

Comprehensive Evaluation

Your visit starts with a detailed examination of your child's oral health. This includes a thorough assessment by Dr. Deric or Dr. Amanda, where they determine the necessity of the extraction and discuss the procedure with you, addressing any concerns.


Preparing for the Procedure

We prepare your child for the procedure by ensuring their utmost comfort. This includes using local anesthesia to numb the area and, if necessary, discussing sedation options. Our aim is to make the process as anxiety-free as possible for both you and your child.


The Extraction Procedure

The extraction is performed with the highest standard of care. We ensure the procedure is quick and with minimal discomfort. Post-extraction, we provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and swift recovery for your child. Your child may need to rest for a day or two after the treatment but should be back to their day to day in no time!
