Tooth Extractions

Wisdom Teeth Extractions - Elmwood ParkWhen a tooth has been damaged beyond repair, your dentist may need to perform a dental extraction. This is usually the last option dentists explore. Depending on the severity of the damaged tooth, extraction may be necessary.

 

Common Reasons for Extraction
 
Teeth that have a severe infection and tooth decay can be very costly or impossible to repair.
 
To prevent the spread of gum disease to surrounding bone and tissue.
 
Sometimes teeth block and prevent other teeth from growing in properly. Tooth extraction creates room for them to emerge.
 
Orthodontists use appliances to slowly shift teeth. Some teeth may need to be removed to create room for other teeth to shift.
 
Is the Process Painful?
 
Anesthetic will be administered by your dentist to numb the area before the procedure. The anesthetic will reduce your discomfort and pain. However, you will still feel the pressure of the tooth removal. The extraction process typically only takes a few minutes.
 
Once the tooth has been extracted, gauze will be used to maintain minimal bleeding. The bleeding will decrease over the next 24 hours. Our dentist will provide post-procedure instructions.
