Why Might I Need a Tooth Extraction?
While our dental team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics will do everything in our power to preserve your child’s beautiful smile, dental extractions can be critical in helping your child avoid further damage and disease. There are a variety of situations that require your child to get a dental extraction:
- Severe Tooth Decay
- Gum Diseases
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth
- Emergency (Fractured Tooth)
No matter your child’s situation, our dental team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is prepared and ready to assist you in finding the best pathway for optimal dental health. In the event that their tooth is not reparable, our team will recommend a tooth removal. Here’s what you can expect leading up to your child’s appointment!
Before You Get Your Tooth Extracted
Our team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is skilled in pediatric tooth extraction and tooth removal. Before you book your child’s appointment for tooth extraction, our dentists will review the specific situation and the tooth’s health and share our recommendations. At this stage, you must do the following:
- Provide a list of medications your child is on for their dentist
- Learn about their options to minimize pain for this procedure
- Stock up on nutritious, soft, liquid foods to eat
- If they need to be sedated during the procedure, ensure your child has a ride to and from the appointment.
Once you have organized this, you and your child can prepare for their appointment!

The Day of Your Appointment
Our team will take your child back to the examination room when you arrive at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics for your pediatric dental or infected tooth extraction. The dentist will numb the area around the tooth, gently extract the tooth, and stitch the site if needed. We will also provide sedation if required or needed for your child’s appointment.
After this, our dentist will prescribe any antibiotics or pain medication your child may need to recover from the extraction of primary teeth or after their pediatric extractions.
Recovering from Tooth Extractions
After your child has completed their tooth removal, it is time to rest and recover! Rest is essential—whether your child had pediatric dental extraction or any primary teeth extraction. Make sure your child does the following:
- Stick to liquid, soft foods
- Limit activity and rest
- Avoid hot liquids or alcohol
- Apply ice packs to reduce swelling
- Do not brush the extraction site
- Do not suck on straws or suck on lollipops
If your child finds themselves struggling with fever, nausea, vomiting, severe pain, bleeding, or pain that comes and goes immediately following their appointment, please get in touch with Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics immediately for help.
