What are tooth extractions?

At Madison Avenue Dentists, we make every attempt to save and maintain your natural teeth, but there are instances where a tooth or teeth may need to be extracted. A simple extraction removes a tooth that's visible above the gumline. This is normally done for a tooth that is decayed or damaged beyond repair. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that has not erupted over the gumline. Surgical extractions are most frequently performed to take out the wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that do not have sufficient room to fit into your mouth. Regardless of the reason for having an extraction in our New York, NY office, our staff will give you the best care. We provide different sedation methods so you can stay comfortable during your treatment. Get in touch with our staff to learn more or to schedule an exam with our dentists to improve your oral health.

How do you know when a tooth extraction is necessary?

If your tooth has been damaged or broken from decay, our team at Madison Avenue Dentists will make every effort to repair it using a crown, bonding, or filling. However, a tooth may be too far into decay and will have to be extracted to prevent the infection from spreading — and also to save the health of the rest of the teeth. You could also need an extraction to remove a tooth or teeth that cannot fit in your mouth. This involves your third molars, commonly called wisdom teeth, which grow around the ages of 17 – 21. In older children, baby teeth that haven't naturally fallen out might have to be extracted so they do not block the permanent teeth. If you're getting braces or considering clear aligners, then you might require extraction to make space for the remaining teeth when they move into their proper place.

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

Based on the sedation used during your extraction in our New York, NY office, you might be required to have an adult drive you home. While your mouth heals, you need to avoid smoking, spitting, and using straws. Your recovery process will vary based on the method of your tooth extraction, but many patients choose to eat soft, room-temperature food for at least a couple of days after the procedure. Our team at Madison Avenue Dentists will speak with you about what to expect during your recovery and how to look after your gums. Your gums will probably be inflamed after the procedure, and we may recommend compresses and over-the-counter pain medication. Sometimes, a written prescription for pain medicine and antibiotics is necessary to help the healing process. Along with some proposed follow-up visits, you should continue to schedule appointments in our office for dental examinations and cleanings so that we can track your dental health following an extraction.
