Tooth Extractions in Carmel, IN
What Is a Tooth Extraction?
We strive to save all healthy teeth, but sometimes situations call for removing a tooth if it’s severely decayed or needs to make room for orthodontic treatment.
Our tooth extraction service:
An extraction stops decay and disease from spreading to other teeth and surrounding areas.
The removal of an infected tooth preserves your child’s smile, helping them feel like themselves again.
Our team strives to provide your kiddo with the best care possible. Our goal is to give them a healthy, pain-free smile.
While the thought of tooth extractions may be daunting, we have a simple process to help you both feel stress-free:
First, you’ll request an appointment for your child. We’ll set up a phone call to get to know them better to create a special experience. Our team will welcome you and give you a tour of the office. We’ll design a dental bib for your child and play their favorite movie while we take a look around. Dr. Juntgen or our new patient coordinator will answer any of your questions.
For the procedure, we’ll use a local anesthetic so your child doesn’t feel any discomfort. But don’t worry – we’ll keep the anesthetic out of sight. To make the administration easier, we’ll use topical numbing jelly and laughing gas.
Once the extraction is complete, your little star will be given gauze to bite down on and we’ll give you thorough instructions for after-care to ensure proper healing. Your child should take it easy for the rest of the day. But as soon as you get home, you should alert the Tooth Fairy!
