Extractions

Dr. Collins may determine that your child needs a tooth extraction for any number of reasons.  Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to chewing ability, problems with the jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your child’s dental health.  To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. Collins will discuss alternatives to extractions, if applicable, as well as placement of a space maintainer when extraction is determined to be the treatment method chosen.

Some extractions can be performed in the office, while those that are more challenging may be referred to an Oral Surgeon.  If extractions are necessary, Dr. Collins will provide you with her treatment recommendations.

OUR DENTAL EXPERINCE AT CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY OF DUBLIN HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. THE STAFF WAS VERY WELCOMING AND MADE MY CHILD FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE AND HAPPY. THE OFFICE IS TREMENDOUSLY CLEAN AND A VERY KID FRIENDLY PLACE. I WILL RECOMMEND ANYONE WITH CHILDREN TO COME HERE, THE BEST PLACE IN TOWN! THE DOGS WERE A HUGE HIT AS WELL! WE WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE CDD. WE CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK.

This was my first time at this office. We recently moved to the area. Let me tell you... even if I moved 2 hours away I would absolutely travel to see Dr. Collins again. She was so patient with my daughter and really put her at ease. My daughter Actually asked when we could come back and was sad we wouldn’t be back for 6 months for her next cleaning. She dreads the dentist normally. Every step was so easy from calling to book the appointment to booking our next appointment and everything in between. Highly recommend

Dr. Collins was very patient with both of my children. She did a wonderful job explaining to them what she was doing and making them feel comfortable. It was a great first time experience for my daughter.

This was our first time coming to this office. I could not be more pleased. Everyone went above and beyond to make both of my kids feel at ease. My daughter has several medical as well as emotional issues and often struggles in new places. Both Dr. Collins and Kate were so good with her!

Everything about our son's first dentist visit was clearly well thought out. The information shared on the website was se en in practice with each choice made: from the movie playing in the waiting room, to the way everyone spoke to our children, and how supportive and flexible they were with our rambunctious family. We look forward to many years of dental care for our family of three littles here!

I could not have been more impressed today with the quality of customer service we received. My kids are 10, 15, and 16. They all had their cleaning today and felt welcome and at ease despite only having had one dentist their whole life until now. I didn't know how this would go, but it went better than I could have imagined. Our other dentist did not accept our new insurance. I thought I'd have to drive to Manchester or Nashua to find a pediatric dental office taking new patients. But viola!!!
