Tooth Extractions at 172 NYC Dental

If possible, we always strive to preserve your natural tooth, whether with fillings, crowns, onlays, or root canals. However, there are a variety of reasons we may recommend teeth extraction. When teeth are badly damaged or decayed and cannot be saved, removal may be the only solution and the best way to ensure that your surrounding teeth are not compromised. Our team thinks two steps ahead. In today’s world, implant dentistry is the gold standard for the replacement of extracted or missing teeth. In keeping with our concept of comprehensive care, Dr. Wang will discuss the need and manner for replacement of the extracted teeth. Many times this is with the placement of an implant in the missing area. So to affect the best result for the implant, at the time of extraction Dr. Wang will place bone graft material and a covering membrane so that strong bone grows back in the socket. In two months the bone will be able to accept the placement of a dental implant. If the area does not need to be restored the bone graft material will not be placed. Most of our extractions are done with local anesthesia. Dr. Wang’s soothing personality, ultramodern surgical suite, personalized music create a tranquil safe environment that allows patients to feel very comfortable. When needed Nitrous oxide or IV Sedation is available. Following surgery, post-operative instructions are carefully given. Prescriptions for discomfort, antibiotics may be written. Rest, ice, and a soft diet are often recommended. Patients will be called to see how they are feeling. Post-op visits are usually two weeks after surgery. The reassuring thing is that any tooth that is lost can in some fashion be replaced. If anterior teeth are being extracted, cosmetic temporary teeth can be placed at the time of surgery; so that everyone goes home feeling complete. 

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

For some patients, removal of all or some of the wisdom teeth may be the best route. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to emerge, which means your mouth is already full of teeth by the time they erupt through the gums. Because of this, the emerging wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding, pushing the teeth out of alignment, and causing decay or periodontal disease.. They can also become impacted or stuck under the surrounding teeth, resulting in pain, infection, or damage to your other teeth. 

Even if your wisdom teeth do not present any of these issues, their location in the far back makes them difficult to care for. This can put your wisdom teeth at risk for decay or infection. We do not arbitrarily extract wisdom teeth (third molars). If there is no pathology present, we are happy to observe your wisdom teeth without any treatment (even if they are impacted). 

The Tooth Extraction Process

The tooth extraction process varies slightly depending on where the tooth is located, why it is being removed, and the tooth’s condition. Simple tooth extractions, where a tooth is easily accessed, are fairly straightforward. However, the procedure varies if the tooth is decayed, impacted, or broken. It will be taken into consideration how the tooth will be replaced prior to the surgery. All medical, dental histories will be reviewed, as well as incredibly accurate records that are taken with x-rays, panorex, and dental CT-Scan.

Our process includes several proven steps based on your situation. 

  • We use advanced pain management techniques to ensure minimal discomfort, including numbing the gum before the procedure, local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and relaxing music.
  • We extract  the tooth using  special instruments that gently remove the tooth using levers
  • For impacted or broken teeth, we may make an incision in the gum to perform the extraction. 
  • Any incision is closed with a few sutures. 
  • After, we will recommend ice packs or medication to help manage pain and swelling.
  • We will give you a follow-up call on the next day
  • Post-op visits will be two weeks following surgery

 Before the procedure, your dentist will have spoken with you about teeth restoration options, including dental implants, and whether your missing teeth need to be replaced. This is comprehensive care. We have the specialists and the expertise to extract your tooth as well as restore it. All in the same office.
