We can fix overcrowded, infected, or impacted teeth with a tooth extraction treatment in our Jackson Heights, NY dental office. Some people may think that tooth extractions are painful procedures, but we use sedation and local anesthesia for a pain-free experience.
A tooth extraction is a helpful general dental treatment that can help build a healthier base for the teeth and gums. Dr. Haim Fedida has modern training in oral surgery, including extractions, as well as implant dentistry. If you need to replace the extracted tooth, he can provide all phases of dental implant treatment under one roof after the extraction of infected or damaged teeth.
Tooth Extraction Treatment
In most cases, an extraction will only take one visit and will not require any stitches or sutures. Our dental surgeon will first numb the area around the tooth using local anesthetic before removing it. He may administer IV sedation before treatment. Then, we will prepare the tooth and carefully remove the root from the jaw. Dr. Fedida will rock the tooth back and forth until it releases. Then, he will clean the extraction site and apply gauze to minimize bleeding. Depending on the situation, you may need tooth replacement or another procedure. We will discuss your options after your appointment.
Dr. Fedida recommends dental implants for patients after the extraction site heals if you want to replace the lost tooth. He can conduct oral surgery to place the dental implants in the root sockets. Dental implants are a dental restoration that provides structural stability, support for the gums, and support for the remaining natural teeth.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
The last molars to emerge are the wisdom teeth. They are the third set of molars in your mouth. Wisdom teeth often emerge when patients are in their late teens or early twenties. We will take diagnostic digital x-rays to determine if the removal of wisdom teeth is necessary. For example, impacted wisdom teeth will require removal. Impacted teeth are teeth that can not erupt in a proper position. They come in so low, at a 45 degree angle, that the roots can’t grow into the jaw bone and start to cause infection and pain. Impacted wisdom teeth are painful and eventually cause overcrowding.
Dental surgeons often remove them because they don’t fit properly and can cause a lot of problems for the teeth and jaw bone around them. Although not every patient needs their wisdom teeth removed. We will keep track of any movement of your wisdom teeth. Removing wisdom teeth is a common procedure that Dr. Fedida preforms in his dental office. The endodontic treatment surgery typically lasts about an hour and you will be able to go home the same day.
