Our goal at Pacifica Dental is always to preserve and restore your natural teeth through a variety of dental services, as each and every tooth significantly contributes to the overall health and functionality of the mouth.
SAVE YOUR ORAL CAVITY WITH TOOTH EXTRACTION ROCKLAND
However, there are circumstances when preserving teeth becomes untenable, which is where our restorative dental services come in. Tooth extraction can often be necessary to save the rest of your oral cavity, including cases of wisdom tooth removal to prevent crowding.
Whenever tooth extraction is considered as a possible treatment, the process is evaluated from a dental and orthodontic standpoint to determine its overall impact on your oral health. In order to do so properly, we complete X-rays on your teeth to determine which type of extraction is needed and educate you about the two common options:
TYPES OF TOOTH EXTRACTIONS IN ROCKLAND
- Simple Extraction — The less severe of the two options, a simple extraction is conducted using local anesthetic to numb the area around your tooth. This means you will only feel pressure, not pain, during the procedure. This allows the dentist to use elevators and forceps to loosen and remove the tooth.
- Surgical Extraction — In some cases, surgery is required to remove other parts of the tooth before fully extracting. This requires you to be under general anesthesia throughout the process, allowing the dentist or oral surgeon to remove bone around your tooth and fully extract it.
In all cases, our plans are conducted to minimize any long-term damage. We strongly recommend that missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible using restorative dental solutions, such as dental bridges, partial or complete dentures, or dental implants.
