Flushing Queens Tooth Extractions

A dental or tooth extraction is the complete removal of a tooth from the jawbone. Our Flushing tooth extractions are outpatient procedures. For natural extractions, the process may require thirty minutes to complete. More difficult extractions, for instance, when the tooth root is embedded deep in the jawbone, may take longer.

At NY Smile Creators, we offer the options of local anesthesia, general anesthesia, and sedation during extractions. This way, our patients can benefit from a virtually pain-free extraction process, with minimal discomfort.

What to Expect from the Extraction Procedure

A dental extraction is a fairly straightforward procedure. Our dentist will inject you with the anesthesia of your choice and then proceed to remove the tooth in question using a pair of forceps. In cases where the tooth is impacted, there is a need for the dentist to cut through the gum and bone tissue to reach the tooth. Once the dentist pulls the tooth out, either as one piece or as several pieces, he’ll place a gauze pad in your tooth socket to stop bleeding.

Afterward, our dentist will issue you with after-care instructions and write you an antibiotic prescription to prevent infection, if he deems it necessary.

Reasons for Extraction

Tooth extraction is usually a last resort, as it’s always better to keep your natural teeth. If you come in with a decayed tooth, our dentist will do everything within his power to save the tooth. If the tooth has severe decay that is beyond the point of restoration, then a case for extraction may be tabled.

Is a Root Canal Considered Oral Surgery?

Yes; however, while many people fear root canals, suspecting they involve painful invasive surgery with scalpels and drilling tools, this is not the case at all. In fact, if you fear getting a root canal, it may be easier to think of it as getting an oral procedure. In fact, no scalpels, stiches, or pulled teeth are involved at all!

A root canal is necessary when a tooth has become so decayed that the pulp of the tooth is affected, causing pain and discomfort. During a root canal, the dentist simply removes the infected pulp and decay from inside the tooth, filling and placing a cap over the tooth once it's been completely cleansed of any bacteria.

Root Canal Procedures

Before any root canal procedure, we fully explain the details that we’ll be performing before the work even begins. We also answer every question that we’re asked in a way that’s easily understood; that way, you’ll not only be prepared for the restorative work that we’ll be performing as a part of your smile makeover.

Most patients will experience some soreness after their root canal and may want to take the next day off from work or school, but other patients can return to their normal activities the next day. Because every patient is different, we’ll make sure to provide you with a complete set of post-operative instructions relevant to your procedure.

What Are The Signs That I May Need A Root Canal?

The following signs and symptoms may indicate that a root canal is necessary:

  • Tooth pain when biting or chewing
  • Increased sensitivity to hot and cold drinks
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums
  • A dark discoloration of the tooth
