Our highest priority, here at PresiDental Care, is for you to maintain all of your natural teeth, healthy and strong, for life. If it unfortunate, however, that there are times when teeth extractions are required. And when they are, you can depend on our Rego Park dental surgery for the gentle, expert care you want and need.
Our oral surgeon will make every reasonable attempt to save your tooth. In some cases, an infected or abscessed tooth can be healed with timely root canal. But when there is no longer any doubt that the tooth has to come out, our Rego Park dental surgery is the solution. You will receive a sufficient amount of local anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. And if you are nervous about it, you can take advantage of nitrous oxide, or what is popularly known as laughing gas. We want you to be as comfortable and at ease as possible. As the tooth is being extracted, you will feel pressure, but not pain. Depending on where the tooth is located in your mouth and its condition, it may be necessary to take it out in multiple pieces. But rest assured that this is natural and won’t put you at any additional risk. After you have had our Rego Park dental surgery, you may need stitches and if there is any bleeding, you will be given gauze to stem it. We will give you detailed instructions to adhere to in the 24 hours that follow. They focus on reducing any residual pain and swelling. You should also rinse frequently with salt in warm water and avoid physical exertion for the rest of the day.
A tooth extraction is the last possible option when it comes to treating an injured or decayed tooth, but it is sometimes unavoidable. That’s why we’re here, though. So call us Rego Park dental surgery when you need us.
