Dental Extractions Park Slope, Brooklyn

What happens when it is necessary to remove a tooth?

There are times when it is absolutely necessary to remove a tooth. This could be a baby tooth that has badly shaped; or has long roots that are preventing it from falling out as it should. Therefore, the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt.  In other instances, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, or spread of infection to the jaw and rest of body. Our dentist may recommend removal of such teeth. However, a missing tooth can be replaced by a bridge or an implant.  In some instances an acute infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with an incoming wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.

Once our dentist decides that a tooth must be removed, this procedure can be performed at the same visit or may require an additional appointment. The root is encased in a 'tooth socket' within the jawbone, whereby it is held within that socket by a ligament. Before our dentist extracts the tooth he must first expand the socket and then separate the tooth from the ligament that holds it in place.

This is normally a routine and fairly quick procedure; however you may want to speak to our dentist regarding the need for possible sedation. 

It is important to note that once a tooth is removed, neighboring teeth may move and this can lead to problems with chewing and speech function. Dr Sarji may discuss with you the options for replacement of that tooth.
