Tooth extraction in Syosset NY
Welcome to the offices of Dr. Warren Baine, DMD, where we perform oral surgery and wisdom tooth removal in a clean and comfortable setting. We perform tooth extraction in Syosset NY for patients suffering from toothaches or impacted wisdom teeth. Toothaches usually signal the presence of a cavity or condition within the tooth that should be treated immediately. Wisdom teeth that become impacted grow under the gum, causing swelling and pain, and need to be taken out before they cause infection.
Most toothaches that happen around the teeth, gums or jaws are a result of a cavity or fractured tooth. Sometimes the root of the tooth has been exposed, which can cause extreme pain. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and the tooth area may be sensitive to hot or cold sensitivity. Wisdom teeth, the last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of the mouth, sometimes cause problems such as crowding and improper bite. Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include pain, inflammation and sometimes infection. Most people have wisdom tooth extraction in Syosset NY to avoid future problems. Other symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include swelling of the face, gums, and moderate to severe pain in the general vicinity.
Most of the time a tooth extraction in Syosset NY is performed is because a wisdom tooth has become impacted, or restoration procedures cannot save the tooth. Extractions today are generally easy and quick, using little in the way of general sedatives and anesthetics to help with pain and very minimal discomfort. After the surgery we recommend avoiding smoking, drinking through a straw, or hard brushing or flossing in the area. Disruption can hinder the healing process and cause the wound to open back up, leaving the area at risk for infection. A cold compress helps reduce swelling.
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Syosset
Many people end up needing some form of oral surgery in their lifetime. Not everyone needs it, but in the event that you do it is generally necessary in order to help restore your dental health. Oral surgery may be needed in several situations, but a common one happens to be wisdom tooth removal. Wisdom teeth are generally not needed anymore and due to evolution most people do not have room for wisdom teeth to properly develop any longer. If you happen to require wisdom teeth removal in Syosset then our dentist Warren Baine, DMD can help provide you with the care that you need.
Wisdom tooth removal is often made apparent by your general dentist or by symptoms that you may be experiencing. For the most part, your dentist should take routine x-rays in order to look at the state of your dental health from below the gumline with every dental visit. These x-rays should also show the relative growth and development of teeth that have not yet come through the gums. In children, this could mean any of their permanent teeth that have not yet come in yet, but most people do not develop wisdom teeth until they are between the ages of 18 and 21. Some people develop them earlier or later, but your x-rays should show when this happens. Some wisdom teeth come in straight, but many others come in crooked which is otherwise known as impacted. This is especially important to consider if your wisdom teeth are growing towards your other teeth. Warren Baine, DMD can help when it comes to identifying and removing impacted wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth removal in Syosset can help resolve any dental issues that you may be having due to impacted or otherwise problematic wisdom teeth.

No matter what your reason is for requiring wisdom teeth removal in Syosset, Dr. Baine can provide you with the comprehensive care and treatment that you need.
