Tooth Extraction in New York
The main goal of dental treatment, no matter how trite it sounds, is to preserve the health of our patient’s teeth. Whether to remove a tooth or not that’s the question. Tooth extraction is still a surgical intervention.
Each case is individual, and the dentists at iSmile Dental always do their best to save the tooth, but unfortunately, there are situations where the only option is removal. It is necessary to remove - to prevent subsequent complications and return the patient to a comfortable lifestyle. After removal, you can perform prosthetics and restore the smile's aesthetics, the full function of the chewing and speech apparatus.
There are several reasons why a dentist has no choice but to remove a tooth. First, due to the reluctance or extreme employment of the patient who suffers pain, it pulls to the last with a trip to the dentist and insufficiently good oral hygiene. Against the background of developing processes, there is a gradual destruction of the tooth or its nerve. Removal helps stop inflammation and prevent the process from affecting bone, gums, and other tissues.
Also, the cause of the removal of teeth may be:
- improperly erupted teeth, which injure the oral cavity;
- jaw injuries; difficult eruption of "wisdom teeth";
- milk teeth with periodontitis;
- tooth mobility in diseases of periodontal tissues;
- with inflammatory processes in the root of the tooth, which are not amenable to treatment;
- in the case of teeth alignment - on the recommendation of an orthodontist;
- if the crown of the tooth is severely destroyed and cannot be restored.

How much is a Tooth Extraction?
The cost of tooth extraction at iSmile Dental New York can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of extraction needed, the tooth's location, and the procedure's complexity. Simple extractions, such as removing a baby tooth or wisdom tooth, tend to be less expensive than more complex extractions, such as removing a molar or impacted tooth.
It is important to note that iSmile Dental New York offers flexible payment options and will work with patients to create a payment plan that fits their budget. They also offer a range of insurance plans that can help cover the cost of the procedure.
The most common reaction is edema. Patients may notice swelling of the gums, the appearance of swelling of the cheek, or a small flux. This is a natural consequence of violating the integrity of soft tissues. Typically, discomfort may to 5-6 days.
There are also no restrictions on how often teeth can be removed. The only limitation is the patient’s state of health.
I especially want to highlight the so-called “red”, or resorcinol, teeth. These teeth are absolutely immobile and attached to bone tissue, so they are sometimes quite difficult to remove. In addition, they are brittle, like glass, often breaking and crumbling during removal.
If the root is deeply recessed in the hole or has time to overgrow, you will need to cut the gum and drill out part of the bone tissue to access the root. Next, the tooth’s root is removed with forceps or a dental elevator.
Sleeping on the side of the extracted tooth and heating the cheek with a palm or heating pad is not recommended. For the same reason, a hot bath, sauna, and solarium are contraindicated two days after removal. These procedures can provoke vasodilation and, as a result, cause heavy bleeding.
Pain after a tooth extraction is a normal body reaction to gums or mucous membrane trauma. It passes on its own in an average of 2-3 days. Increased pain, swelling, and fever may indicate the development of an inflammatory or infectious process.
Acute leukemia, agranulocytosis.
– Hemorrhagic diathesis.
– Mental illness during exacerbation.
– Critical violation of cerebral circulation.
Before any operation for the treatment of teeth or their removal, it is forbidden to drink alcohol at any dose. Before removal, you can not allow overheating of the body; you should exclude taking baths or visiting a tub or sauna. Dentists do not recommend attending sports before tooth extraction.
From below, wisdom teeth are often located incorrectly, squeezing neighboring teeth; their eruption is usually accompanied by more severe pain. The bone structure of the lower jaw is dense, so tooth extraction in this area requires a lot of effort, experience, and patience from the dentist.
If you do not do this, the rotting roots will create a serious problem for the patient’s health. Pathogenic microflora will spread to neighboring teeth. A persistent unpleasant odor will be felt from the mouth. A cyst or granuloma may form around the top of the root.
