In most cases, a tooth extraction is recommended to stabilize a tooth and address severe decay, damage, and malocclusion. A tooth extraction is only recommended when it is compromising the overall health and function of your teeth.
Roslyn family dentist Dr. Diana Pop routinely performs tooth extractions in our New York dental office. If applicable, Dr. Pop may perform a root canal to avoid extracted the tooth. In the event of a tooth extraction, Dr. Pop will carefully remove the affected tooth by the root. The gums will be gently cleaned and sutured to reduce the risk of inflammation or infection. Dr. Pop will provide aftercare instructions to ensure your the extraction site heals properly.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removable is the most common types of tooth extraction procedure. Wisdom teeth are routinely removed during the teens and early twenties. Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to emerge in the mouth. Not all patients will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth are only removed if they become impacted or cause overcrowding. Dr. Pop will take a diagnostic X-ray of the mouth, teeth, and gums to determine are wisdom tooth removal is necessary.
Wisdom tooth removal is generally performed under local anesthetic. If you suffer from dental fear or anxiety, we offer a full range of sedation dentistry options to help you feel at ease during your procedure.
Our team at Bella Smiles Roslyn will consult with you one on one to determine the best course of action for your smile. To learn more about wisdom tooth removal, contact Bella Smiles Roslyn in Roslyn, NY.
Replacing Extracted Teeth
Depending on the location and the number of extracted teeth, patients can replace extracted teeth with dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges.
The most common replacement for single tooth extraction is dental implants. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth root. Single tooth dental implants are comprised of three parts: the post, the abutment, and the dental crown. Dental implants are one of the most natural looking, effective tooth replacement options.
In most cases, we will handle phases of your dental implant process in our Roslyn, NY dental office. Dr. Pop will work with you to determine if dental implants are right for your oral needs.
