When is it necessary to extract a baby tooth?

Did You Know?

If a baby tooth is lost prematurely, we'll put in place a dental space maintainer!

One of the important functions of baby teeth is to maintain spacings for the permanent teeth that will replace them.

Therefore, while the premature loss of a baby tooth can make eating and speaking more difficult, it can also interfere with tooth alignment.

This is why we use dental space maintainers to preserve the spacing left behind by the lost tooth. 

How Do We Extract A Baby Tooth?

We perform each step of our procedure very gently, so much so that most children won’t notice that their tooth is being removed! At the end, they leave with their tooth in a small box, all set for the tooth fairy. They can return to normal activities right away, and the effects of our anesthesia will dissipate rapidly.

You are provided with written aftercare instructions, and Dr. Agachi is at your disposal via email or telephone.

Once a tooth has been extracted, we use a laser to stimulate the cells of the alveolus (the hole left behind by the tooth). This has numerous benefits:

Is There Any Anesthesia?

To make tooth extractions painless, we offer nitrous oxide (MEOPA) and we always administer an intraosseous anesthesia that doesn't put the lips or cheeks to sleep.
