Extractions should be done by a qualified oral surgeon, which is what you will get when you come to the office of Warren Baine, DMD. It is a delicate procedure that when done properly will mean no pain at all for you, and an effective and successful removal of the tooth in question. While it is not ideal to lose a natural tooth, it is sometimes unavoidable.
What causes the need for our Syosset extractions? It is often the result of tooth decay caused by dental plaque and tartar. When a tooth becomes weakened beyond the ability to be saved with a filling or a crown, it will need to be taken out. The same is true when an infected tooth is not suitable for root canal therapy. While there are other possible reasons, including the effects of gum disease or an injury that has left a tooth fractured beyond repair, those are the most common. The process of our Syosset extractions begin with the application of local anesthesia. You will then feel only the pressure of the tooth being taken out, not any pain. It is a priority for us to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. The removal of the tooth will then commence. In order to get the entire tooth, the gums surrounding it are cut open. The difficulty of an extraction is based largely on the location of the tooth and any obstacles that have to be gotten around. Sometimes the tooth has to come out in pieces. This will nave no negative effect on the result, however, so there is no need for worry. Within 24 hours or so, you should recover completely. You will need to eat soft foods until then and follow the guidelines provided by our oral surgeon.
Don’t hesitate to contact us and set up a prompt appointment when oral pain indicates that you may need our Syosset extractions.
