At Park South Dentistry, we do everything in our power to save a tooth from extraction. However, at times a tooth extraction can be the best option for your smile. Whether your teeth are too crowded, a wisdom tooth is impacted or a tooth is severely damaged, removing a tooth can sometimes benefit the surrounding teeth and relieve pain or discomfort. If you are in need of a tooth extraction in New York, NY, our team is well-trained and well-experienced.
The Extraction Process
We understand many patients feel anxiety when facing a tooth extraction and our well-experienced dental team will make your extraction quick and as painless as possible. To help you relax during an extraction, sedation dentistry is available. Sedation helps you feel completely at ease in the dental chair. When you use sedation, you are able to respond to your dentist if needed but will not be bothered by surrounding sounds and smells. Additionally, discomfort is minimized and many patients just report a dull pressure at the site of extraction. Our team will go above and beyond to make your experience both pleasant and comfortable. The actual extraction itself is simple and quick! We take great care to completely remove your problem tooth without harm to surrounding teeth or damage to the jaw.
Restoration After Extraction
If you are in need of a tooth restoration following an extraction, your dentist can go over options for restoring your smile. In some cases, a dental implant can help replace your missing tooth. Implants are lifelike tooth replacement solutions that can virtually completely restore your smile. Other options include dental bridges, which are a collection of crowns fused together to span the gap where the missing tooth is. Either option will give you a whole smile again and allow you to bite, chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or have a tooth that needs to be extracted, our team can examine your smile and provide you with the best options for your teeth. Don’t put off taking care of your smile. Call today!
