At Gramercy Dental Center, we pursue all general dentistry options to help restore damaged teeth before we recommend an extraction. However, in some cases, removing a badly damaged or decayed tooth is the only option, or it’s in the best interest of your future oral health. For example, removing a severely decayed tooth can prevent the likelihood of a bacterial infection spreading to nearby teeth.
Rest assured that we perform tooth extractions with the highest level of care at Gramercy Dental Center. Not only do we have ways to keep you comfortable and relaxed, but we use dedicated techniques to preserve as much healthy tissue and bone as possible during your extraction. In addition, we will discuss your options for tooth replacement before we initiate treatment. We realize that it is not good for your self-esteem nor your oral health to have a missing tooth for a long period of time. Our New York office offers a full range of options in restorative dentistry including bridges, dentures, partials and dental implants.
Reasons for Tooth Extractions
While modern dentistry has come a long way in terms of repairing damaged teeth, not all teeth can be saved. Patients may need an extraction after a traumatic dental injury or when they have extreme decay, infection or impacted wisdom teeth. It is also common to need tooth removal to prepare for orthodontic treatment, especially when teeth are crowded. Lastly, a tooth extraction can be recommended for a pediatric patient if a baby tooth refuses to fall out on its own. At Gramercy Dental Center, we see patients of all ages. Regardless of the reason for your tooth extraction or your level of anxiety about the procedure, we promise to put you at ease. Our team will make your visit as painless as possible.
