Tooth Extractions

Gentle, Pain-Free Tooth Removal

Lose a Tooth, Gain a Healthier Smile

Tooth pain is considered among the most intense sensations you will ever experience. At its worst, it can keep you from eating, drinking, concentrating, and sleeping. The Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake team always attempts to save a bad tooth through treatment rather than removing it. In some instances, the extent of the decay or damage requires us to perform extractions. When that’s the case, put yourself at ease. We’re well-known for providing gentle, skilled tooth extractions in Mohegan Lake and Tarrytown, NY! Through our powerful, unique combination of experience, technology, and sedation dentistry, we’ll put you at ease. We can provide oral sedation, which allows you to relax during your procedure, as well as nitrous oxide (sometimes called laughing gas), which keeps you alert but calm. Our practice is also proud to be one of the very few that offers NuCalm, a combination of therapies that together make any dental procedure a stress-free experience. Just know that if you have your extraction done here, we’ll do everything possible to make it pain- and anxiety-free for you.

Reasons for Tooth Extractions

  • Constant or severe tooth pain
  • Inflammation or pus around a tooth
  • A diseased tooth or damaged tooth

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

Our Tooth Extraction Services

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Our wisdom teeth generally come in during our late teens or early 20s. If they don’t erupt or only come in partially through the gums, they’re considered impacted and usually need to be removed. Wisdom teeth can grow at odd angles, making them difficult to clean properly and more susceptible to decay. This unusual growth can also cause them to press against adjacent teeth, potentially causing those otherwise healthy teeth to become crooked. While wisdom tooth removal is somewhat more complex than general extractions, we have the experience and qualifications to produce the best results.

General Tooth Extractions

If you have diseased adult teeth that can’t be treated, we can alleviate your pain by removing them. We use cone beam CT imaging to gain an in-depth view of the tooth, even below the gums. After receiving sedation dentistry, we gently remove the tooth. But we don’t stop there. Without a full set of healthy teeth to support it, your jawbone can begin to decay. We can prevent that in multiple ways. One is by performing bone grafting in the empty socket. In conjunction with or in place of that, we can provide you with a dental implant.

The Dental Implant Advantage

Dental implants restore the full function and esthetics of your natural teeth, but they never decay or become discolored. If you choose us for your dental implants, you’ll be in the best of hands. Both of our dentists completed a two-year dental residency focused on dental implants after dental school. We continue to expand our skills through ongoing education, enabling us to treat you with the latest technology and techniques. We place and restore implants, which means you can get comprehensive care in one convenient practice. There’s no more experienced or credentialed team for implants after tooth extractions in Mohegan Lake and Tarrytown, NY.

Tooth Extraction Aftercare Is Critical

After an extraction, any tooth pain you might’ve been experiencing should subside within a few days. Medication can help you feel more comfortable during your healing process. Extractions also require special aftercare to avoid complications. An empty tooth socket will usually develop a blood clot while healing. If this clot fails to form or comes loose, you may be dealing with a very painful complication called dry socket. To prevent this, follow ALL of your dentist’s post-extraction instructions. This will include temporarily modifying some of your dietary habits. It’ll be well worth it to you when you’re pain-free and healthy again!
