Precision and Compassion

When circumstances necessitate tooth extractions, Bay View Pediatric Dentistry stands as a beacon of precision and compassion under the guidance of Dr. Paul Cantelmi. Whether a tooth is irreversibly damaged, diseased beyond salvage, or if overcrowding issues arise, Dr. Cantelmi employs a thorough approach to determine the best course of action for your child’s oral health. This process entails a meticulous examination, complete with X-rays, to guide the decision-making process.

During the extraction procedure, Dr. Cantelmi ensures your child’s comfort by administering local anesthesia, effectively numbing the area. With gentle expertise, the tooth is then carefully removed. While some bleeding is expected, the mouth forms a protective blood clot in due course. Dr. Cantelmi’s dedication extends beyond the procedure itself. He provides detailed aftercare instructions, emphasizing the importance of maintaining oral hygiene around the extraction site. Should any concerns arise, Dr. Cantelmi and his team remain steadfast in their commitment to your child’s well-being, ready to address any post-surgery issues promptly and effectively.
