Extraction

Our doctors may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. In some Somerset County and Hunterdon County patients, teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, our doctors will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

 


“The staff was caring and amazing. The dentist was friendly and explained everything. I would highly recommend this practice.”


The extraction Process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

To schedule a teeth extraction consultation with one of our oral surgeons, contact our offices in the Somerset County and Hunterdon County area.
