Don’t Live with an Unhealthy Smile
Having a painful or problem tooth is never comfortable, and when your teeth are beyond saving, we often have to resort to tooth extraction. While we will always do everything possible to save your teeth first, sometimes damage, decay or bone loss is too severe, and extraction is our only option. For many people who are experiencing tooth pain, the actual extraction of the tooth can instantly relieve them of the pain. At our Cedarhurst, NY office, we offer timely tooth extractions and replacement with dental implants to get your mouth and smile back to health, function and beauty!
Contrary to popular belief, tooth extractions are actually a very common procedure. In fact, around 74 percent of adults have had a tooth extracted at some point in their lifetime. The reason you don’t see more people with incomplete smiles is that there are many options for replacement, including bridges, dentures and modern dental implants. We make the extraction process gentle by offering sedation options including local anesthetic to block sensations of discomfort. Many of our patients report that they only feel a slight pressure at the site of extraction and immediate relief afterward.
