When Problem Teeth Have to GO!

Ideally, your child should only lose teeth as a result of nature, but sometimes our team has to intervene in cases where a tooth is too decayed or broken to be repaired. We don’t recommend children's tooth extractions in Katy lightly, even for baby teeth, and they only serve as a last option once every other treatment has been ruled out. Between Dr. Mehta’s gentle touch and our sedation dentistry options, she’s an expert at keeping kids comfortable during this often-feared procedure. She’s so good that many children end up saying, “Wait…that’s it?!”

When Are Children's Tooth Extractions Necessary?

Dr. Mehta may recommend a tooth extraction for your child if:

  • A tooth is so decayed or damaged that it cannot be restored.
  • An infection is at risk of spreading to neighboring teeth or the jaw.
  • Decay has weakened the root of a tooth and made it unstable.
  • More room is needed to create space for orthodontics.
