A toothache may not mean you need to have a tooth removed, but it could. One thing is certain, which is that the longer you wait to have a toothache addressed, the greater the chance that you’ll end up losing it. And there are two things to reassure you if you do need our tooth extraction in Middle Village. One is that it will be one with the utmost of expertise and gentle care; and the second is that at Implant and Cosmetic Dental Care, PLLC you can get that lost tooth replaced simply and effectively.
Severe tooth decay, an infection that is not a good candidate for root canal, or a badly fractured tooth are all common examples of reasons why a tooth would be taken out. You need not worry, though. You will be numbed with local anesthesia in advance of our tooth extraction in Middle Village. Our priority is for you to experience no pain at all during the procedure. If you would like further assurance, though, we are pleased to offer nitrous oxide sedation to keep you relaxed and at ease throughout. After the tooth is taken out, you might be a good candidate to have the implant put in immediately. This not only saves you a visit to our office, but gives you a head start on the completion of your new tooth. Not everyone will be qualified to have that done, but if you are, it’s a great benefit. Our tooth extraction in Middle Village concludes when you get instructions from our office on how to maximize healing. During the first 24 hours, you should eat only soft foods, such as broth, gelatin, and pudding. Rinse with warm salt water frequently. Use over-the-counter pain relief medication and an ice pack to manage any discomfort or swelling once your anesthesia has worn off.
