In some situations, the only way for our pediatric dentist, Dr. Jeff Flannery, to stop decay and infection from spreading is through a tooth extraction, though this is usually a last resort. If your child is having severe decay, damage or other problems with a tooth, and you expect they might need a tooth extraction in Birmingham, Alabama, please call Oak Mountain Pediatric Dentistry at 205-980-1338 today, and we can help you find the right treatment for your child’s situation.
