When is Tooth Extraction Needed?
The topmost priority of any dentist is to preserve your natural teeth. However, in some cases, tooth extraction can’t be avoided. The very thought of getting a tooth pulled out scares many people. But at the dental office of Joseph F. DeSantis and Associates LLC, we use the most advanced dental technology and take all the necessary care to ensure that your tooth extraction is a comfortable and pleasant experience for you!
We perform a comprehensive assessment of your oral health before concluding that a tooth extraction is required. All cases of toothache, decay, disease or trauma may not call for tooth extraction.
Expert Tooth Extraction
Once it has been decided that tooth extraction is the only way to restore your oral health, we will discuss anesthesia and sedation options with you. The first step in a tooth extraction is to take an X-Ray of the tooth to assess its exact position, especially if the tooth is partially erupted. We will administer local anesthesia at the extraction site and then the tooth is carefully pulled out using dental instruments. Once the tooth is out, the area is cleaned and flushed and stitches may be placed. You will be asked to bite down on a piece of sterile gauze to control bleeding and we will give you instructions on post-op care.
