Overcrowded, infected, or impacted teeth may be removed with tooth extraction treatment in our Jackson Heights, NY office. Some people may think that tooth extractions are painful procedures, but we use sedation and local anesthesia for a pain-free experience.
Tooth extractions are helpful general dental procedures that can help build a healthier foundation for the teeth and gums. Dr. Haim Fedida has advanced training in oral surgery, including extractions, as well as implant dentistry. He can provide all phases of implant treatment under one roof after the extraction of infected or damaged teeth.
Tooth Extraction Treatment
We will administer IV sedation and local anesthetic before treatment. Then, we will prepare the tooth and carefully remove the roots from the jaw. The tooth is rocked back and forth until it is released. The extraction site is cleaned and gauzed is applied to minimize bleeding. If tooth replacement or another treatment is needed, we will discuss your options after your appointment.
Dr. Fedida recommends dental implants for patients after the extraction site heals. Dental implants are surgically placed in empty root sockets. They are a dental restoration that provides structural stability and support for the gums remaining natural teeth.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
The last molars to emerge are the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth often emerge when patients are in their late teens or early twenties. If the wisdom teeth become impacted, they will need to be removed. We will take diagnostic digital x-rays to determine if the removal of wisdom teeth is necessary.
Impacted teeth are teeth blocked from emerging properly. Wisdom teeth that are impacted can cause pain and eventual overcrowding if they are not extracted. Although not every patient needs their wisdom teeth removed, we will keep track of any movement of the wisdom teeth.
