Removal of a tooth is a last restore, typically considered when other treatment options have been eliminated as being viable. Here at the practice of Michael Kushner DDS, extractions are done with the skilled and gentle care you want and expect. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable during the process.
There are a variety of concerns that come up when you have a tooth extracted at our West Brighton oral surgery office. Sure, the problem tooth is now gone, but if it was one that shown when you smile or laugh, it’s going to be glaringly obvious that there is now empty space where a tooth used to be. Even if the tooth was in the back, you can suffer with the shifting or your other teeth, which can result in discomfort and the misalignment of your jaws. Chewing may be less efficient, as well, and that can have a negative effect on your digestion. So it’s easy to see why even though it may be necessary to have your tooth removed at our West Brighton oral surgery office, you shouldn’t just ignore the loss of that tooth. The good news is that with a state-of-the-art dental implant, you can get not only something to fill that space, but that looks, feels, and functions like a real tooth. In fact, it may be possible to place the first component of the implant immediately after your tooth extraction, if you’re a good candidate for it. Either way, you should eat soft foods, rinse frequently with warm salt water, and use an ice pack on your face to manage any swelling for the first 24 hours after having your tooth extracted.
