Extractions

Teeth are extracted or removed when they are unsalvageable by any treatment.  This may be due to decay, infection or trauma. Teeth are also extracted for orthodontic reasons when there is inadequate space in the jaws to accommodate all teeth.  With careful use of nitrous oxide, topical anesthetic and local anesthetic, extractions are performed on children with minimal discomfort.

Nitrous oxide is only used when necessary.
