Experience in Extractions
Nearly 75 percent of all adults have had a tooth extracted at some point in their life. While tooth extraction is a common procedure for us, we will always do everything possible to save your natural teeth first. If a tooth is beyond saving, extraction could be required to preserve your oral health. Dr. Patrick Nicosia has the best experience in extraction procedure and offer specialized care to make this experience as simple and pain free as possible.
Teeth require extraction for a number of reasons, but one of the most common signs you might need a tooth extracted is pain. Usually caused by infection, tooth pain, if not treated can spread to surrounding areas of the mouth and cause tooth loss, at best. Contrary to what many believe, the procedure is not painful, but we offer sedation options if you want, to help you relax and get the care you need.
Comprehensive Care Before, During and After Extraction
Soon after a tooth is extracted, the bone where the tooth root was begins to shrink in volume. That is why we often recommend replacing it with a dental implant, which closely mimics the function and appearance of a natural tooth. If you are not ready for an implant now, we can offer socket preservation treatment which will help prevent bone loss and preserve the area so you can qualify for an implant in the future. If you need a tooth extracted, trust our experienced periodontal team for treatment before, during and after treatment to improve your oral health and the appearance and function of your smile.
