Tooth Extractions in Liverpool, NY

At Mapleridge Children & Adult Dentistry, Dr. Saini and her team work hard to restore, repair, and save natural teeth because every tooth plays an essential role in biting, chewing, and maintaining jawbone structure. However, there are situations in which tooth extractions are unavoidable.

 

What to Expect

If Dr. Saini recommends an extraction, she will take the time to explain the procedure to you, along with the cost, before removing the tooth. At our practice, your comfort is always our top priority! Prior to the extraction, we will provide you with a local anesthetic that will numb the surrounding tissue to reduce your discomfort.

Once the area is numb, Dr. Saini will remove the tooth, control any bleeding and if necessary, use stitches to close the gums. Once the procedure is completed, Dr. Saini may prescribe or recommend a pain medication to help control any post-procedure pain and swelling. Before you leave our office, we will provide you with full instructions on how to take care of your mouth while your gums and jaw are healing.

 

Tooth Extractions in Liverpool NY

Reasons Teeth May Need to Be Extracted

A tooth extraction is the complete removal of a tooth from the mouth. This is a procedure that may be necessary for both children and adults. Dr. Saini may recommend a tooth extraction if:

  • A primary (baby) tooth is preventing a permanent tooth from erupting through the gums
  • The patient has advanced periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • A tooth is extensively decayed or damaged beyond repair
  • For planned orthodontic treatment in order to make sufficient room in the mouth for the teeth to move

In the majority of these cases, Dr. Saini can perform the tooth extractions right here in our Liverpool dental office, to help our patients avoid the need for surgery.
