What Is Tooth Extraction?

This is a broad term that refers to surgically removing a tooth. This can mean teeth in any location including incisors, molars, or bicuspids. Our cutting edge technologies and procedures make these extractions faster and less painful. Tooth extractions can include removing one tooth or many teeth at a time. The procedure goes something like this:

  1. Your Westchester periodontist will administer an anesthetic to numb the area.
  2. This means that patients will likely not feel much while the tooth is being removed.
  3. The tooth is then removed.
  4. After removal, your dentist will put sutures in the space in the gums.
  5. We will then discuss how to care for the area when you go home.

Why Is Getting a Tooth Extraction Sometimes Needed?

If you are in pain or suffering from an infection, a tooth extraction might be the right route. In some periodontal disease cases, a deep cleaning doesn’t help the infection. In that event, a tooth extraction could be necessary. Tooth decay can lead to even more health problems, so sometimes removing a tooth is the smartest decision. This procedure can improve oral health and reduce pain if you have an infection or other problem. There is actually a link between improper dental care and heart disease. So, having a healthy, infection-free mouth has many long-reaching impacts.

Your Westchester periodontist will explain the extraction process during your appointment. You are always welcome to ask questions, too. We want to help you feel comfortable. We will take X-Rays of your teeth, and we will show them to you and discuss what is going on. Common types of anesthesia during a tooth extraction include local and sedation. Local anaesthesia is injecting numbing medication around the site of the tooth removal. Sedation is using medication to put the patient into a semi-conscious condition.
