Removal of the tooth
We always strive to make our patients comfortable before we begin. The pediatric dentist will apply a local anesthetic (for wisdom teeth removal, oftentimes a general anesthetic will be administered) to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
After the tooth has been carefully and gently removed, gauze is applied to minimize any bleeding. Your child’s dentist may need to make a few small stiches to speed up the healing process.
