Why Tooth Removal?

You and Dr. Wilkerson may determine that your child needs a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Our team at Children’s Dentistry of Charleston, WV… opens in a new window to Google Maps…, ensures a safe and comfortable tooth extraction for your child.

Reasons for tooth extractions include:

  • Severe decay

  • Advanced periodontal disease 

  • Broken teeth that cannot be repaired

  • Poorly positioned teeth or impacted teeth

  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment

The Extraction Process

Here is how we will remove your child's tooth.

We’re moms too, and we know how unique each child is. So before any treatment, we first get to know your child to provide the best treatment in the most comfortable way.

For extractions, we first educate you and your child by letting you know exactly what to expect before, during, and after. So… what’s the extraction process like?
