There are several reasons why a child or teen may need to have a tooth removed in order to ensure good dental health in the future.
If your child needs a tooth extraction, you should choose a dentist in the Waltham, MA, area with pediatric experience.
The pediatric dentists at Children's Dental of Waltham use a gentle approach when it comes to extractions and other dental care procedures.

At Dr. Gutnichenko's practice we found the most "customer-centric", professional, compassionate and technologically advanced care for our daughter, who presented with multiple challenges (we have been to quite a few offices before). Our whole family moved to them as a result; we have been their clients for years now, so glad it is a Family practice. Highly recommended!View on Google
What Is the Tooth Extraction Process?
Typically, your dentist will just need to rock the baby tooth back and forth very gently. As it loosens, it can be easily lifted from the socket. Numbing anesthesia may not be needed.
Our goal is to remove a minimal amount of healthy bone or gum tissue to uncover a tooth. This allows our dentist to remove it with minimal impact to the surrounding tissue.
Before a surgical extraction, mild nitrous oxide sedation can be administered through a mask to keep your teen or child comfortable. The same sedation can be provided during simple extractions if needed. This can make the process easy and comfortable, even for patients with dental anxiety.
