Why Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is a common dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from the socket in the bone. There are several reasons why you may need a tooth extraction, including:

  • Severe tooth decay or damage that cannot be repaired with a tooth filling or dental crown
  • Crowding or alignment issues that require the removal of a tooth to make space for orthodontic treatment
  • Infection or abscess that cannot be treated with antibiotics or a root canal
  • Preparation for dental implants, dentures, or other prosthetic devices

Whatever the reason for your tooth extraction, our team of dental professionals will work with you to ensure that you receive the best possible care and support throughout the process.

What to Expect During a Tooth Extraction

That’s why we take extra care to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. We use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, so you should not feel any pain during the extraction. If you require additional comfort, we can discuss our sedation dentistry options with you before your dental extraction procedure.

Dr. Fred Hecht is an experienced dentist who has performed many tooth extractions, so you can trust that you are in good hands. He will use specialized tools to gently loosen the tooth from its socket and carefully remove it.

After the extraction, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site to promote healing and prevent infection. You may experience some discomfort or swelling for a few days after the procedure, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days.

Tooth Replacement Options

That’s why we offer a range of tooth replacement options to our patients following a dental extraction. Whether you require a single tooth replacement or a full arch restoration, we can help you find a solution that meets your needs and fits your budget.

Some common tooth replacement options include dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures. Dental implants are a popular option because they are a long-lasting, durable solution that looks and functions like a natural tooth. Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and are anchored to the surrounding teeth for stability. Dentures are another option for patients who are missing multiple teeth, and can be either full or partial depending on the patient’s needs.

At Staten Island Dental Care, we will work with you to determine the best tooth replacement option for your unique situation. We understand that each patient’s needs and preferences are different, and we will take the time to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your dental care.
