GENTLE BABY TOOTH EXTRACTION
Early dental experiences form a lifetime attitude toward dental care. It is especially important that pediatric tooth extraction be handled with gentleness, empathy, and good humor. With nearly a decade of clinical experience and as a mother herself, Dr. Boppana understands.
If a tooth is too badly decayed to be saved with pulpotomy or root canal therapy, or fractured beyond repair, extraction is the best choice. The procedure requires only local numbing, and an appointment usually lasts about 20 to 40 minutes.
