Sheepshead Bay Extractions
Extractions in Sheepshead Bay
Losing one of your natural teeth is not ideal, but the good news is that it has never been easier and more effective to replace teeth than now. At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we’re your experts in both extractions and in putting in new teeth.
Tooth pain will certainly get your attention. And that is almost always the chief warning sign when you are going to need our Sheepshead Bay extractions. Severe decay, a chipped tooth, or a cracked one can all allow bacteria to get inside and cause an infection. Some such situations can be adequately addressed with root canal, but if not then the tooth will need to be removed. You will be kept comfortable during our Sheepshead Bay extractions. Sufficient numbing with local anesthesia comes first. You will not feel pain, but only the pressure of the tooth being loosened. Sometimes, a tooth has to be taken out in pieces, but it doesn’t really matter. There is no disadvantage to it.
You will need to take it easy with chewing for 24 hours after. It is advisable to eat soft foods, like pudding, gelatin, and broth. There may be some residual discomfort or swelling when the anesthesia wears off, but with over-the-counter pain relievers and an ice pack on your face you can manage it easily. Getting a dental implant to replace the lost teeth is a process that takes several months to complete. However, you can experience a quick start by having our dentist place the post for the implant as part of the same procedure as the tooth removal. This is not always possible, but if it is you can save the fuss of a second visit and another procedure.
Our Sheepshead Bay extractions are done with precision and the utmost of comfort for you. And you won’t have to live with empty space where a tooth used to be. Call us to arrange an appointment.
