Tooth Extraction Clifton Park, NY
Gentle Extraction of Problem Teeth
When a tooth is badly damaged, infected, or needs to be replaced with dental implants, we commonly need to perform tooth extractions. Having a tooth extracted is more common than many people think, with over 74 percent of adults needing an extraction at some point in their life. While our team will do everything possible to save your natural teeth, we offer gentle tooth extractions when it is absolutely necessary. Most patients experience a relief from pain after extraction and can begin to make necessary steps towards replacing their lost teeth with dental implants.
Common reasons you may need a tooth extraction:
- Severe damage or trauma to teeth
- Excessive tooth decay
- Wisdom teeth
- Retained baby teeth
- Choosing full-arch dental implants
Extraction to Improve Oral Health
During a tooth extraction procedure, your tooth and surrounding area of the jaw will be numbed so that discomfort is minimized. Most patients only experience a dull pressure during a tooth extraction thanks to our sedation dentistry. Our doctors will delicately remove the tooth and provide a socket preservation to fill the empty socket with bone material. This bone graft is necessary to ensure the jawline stays even and has enough volume to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, and to have dental implants placed in the future.
We always recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants as they provide both jaw bone stimulation for improved oral health and a natural look and function. We can replace individual teeth, multiple teeth and even restore a full-arch of missing teeth with dental implants. Our team is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care that will give your smile lasting results. With our gentle tooth extractions, we can set you on the course for a healthy, functional mouth.
