Teeth may need to be removed for many reasons. Of course, our dentist will always try first to save a natural tooth. But when procedures such as root canal therapy and crowns or fillings cannot save a tooth, the tooth must be extracted. Today, thanks to the use of effective anesthetics and sedatives, this procedure is much less painful, and much better tolerated than ever before. In fact, today when a patient experiences Middle Village tooth removal, they usually have little to no discomfort, and only experience minor bleeding.
Before a tooth is removed, the surrounding gums may be swabbed with a topical anesthetic or have Novacain injected. Afterwards, special instructions must be followed for several hours so that the wound does not reopen, and can begin to heal. Cold compresses may be applied to the cheek near the extraction area to reduce swelling, and facilitate quick healing. Wisdom teeth often cause unique problems because they are the last to erupt, and the mouth may be somewhat crowded with teeth by this time. Wisdom teeth can cause other teeth to be pushed out of place, or come in sideways or not as all. At this point the wisdom teeth are said to be impacted, and need to come out surgically. The signs of impacted wisdom teeth are: pain; inflammation; and infection.
