Tooth Extractions Hillsborough, NJ

We’ll help you improve your oral health by extracting unhealthy or aesthetically unattractive teeth to make room for implants or to create healthy space that will improve your smile.

Extractions are performed for a variety of different reasons. Tooth decay that has damaged enough tooth structure to prevent anything from saving the tooth is the most frequent indication for extraction of teeth. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed. Usually, when you lose a tooth, it is best for your oral health to have it replaced. Missing teeth can affect you :bite” as well as your ability to speak and chew. Their loss can increase the burden on your remaining teeth and cause extra wear on teeth, headaches, and muscle pain in your jaw. Of course, losing a tooth can affect your appearance as well.

The good news is that, most of the time, we can replace that missing tooth without too much trouble!

Key Benefits:

  • Remove damaged tooth and make room for a healthy implant
  • Remove dead or decaying tooth to prevent infection
  • Create space by removing a tooth from an overcrowded area
  • Removing a tooth for any reason will be beneficial to either your oral health or the aesthetics of your smile.

Insurance & Payments

We believe that high-quality dental care should accessible for everyone. That’s why we accept most major insurance plans and are priced competitively for those who wish to pay out of pocket. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Additional Information

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. When a tooth has been damaged or broken by decay, we will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. If preserving the original tooth is not an option, we will likely need to extract your tooth.

Tooth extractions are also sometimes required for cosmetic treatments. For example, dental implants generally require your tooth to be extracted.

FAQ:

Are there any options to tooth extractions?

If the tooth has decayed to a point where it can not be repaired or significantly damaged, it is typically best to have it extracted. This will maintain and improve your oral health.

What does the procedure involve?

We’ll use local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth and ensure you are comfortable. Once you are numb and can’t feel anything, the dentist will begin the extraction process. We first increase the size of the socket around the affected tooth and then the dentist will gently, and painlessly pull the tooth from side to side until it is loose enough to extract.

Is the tooth extraction painful?

The local anaesthetic will prevent you from feeling any pain. Some patients feel minor discomfort from the pressure of the tooth being maneuvered prior to extraction.

What happens after the tooth is extracted?

After the extraction, a small stitch might be needed to stop any bleeding. If a stitch is not required, the dentist may simply ask you to bite down on a cotton pad. This will stop any bleeding.

Are there any risks involved?

Tooth extractions are very safe and an extremely common procedure. However, as with all procedures there is very small possibility of mild side effects or complications. Most patients with mild side effects or complications find that they go away very quickly after finishing the extraction. Some side effects include:

  • Swelling around the area where the tooth was extracted
  • Tenderness in the gums
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Mild pain
    Light bleeding
