Son was told he needed a pulpotomy but on the xray I can already see his adult tooth below. My son has generalized anxiety and I think pulling it would be less stressful on him. Can i just request an extraction

  • the adult tooth are there when the X-ray is taken but whether they are ready to erupt or not . that matters. As your son is 10.5 years old that means all the adult teeth are almost about to erupt and in that case the baby tooth can be pulled out but you have to discuss with your dentist as it is difficult to comment with out seeing the X-ray.
