Gentle Tooth Extractions in Brooklyn, NYC

At North Brooklyn Dental Care, tooth extractions are handled with the utmost care and comfort. Our dentists and the rest of our friendly team are here to guide you through the process, ensuring a gentle experience that prioritizes your peace of mind. Let’s explore why tooth extraction may be the best option, the gentle extraction process, and the smooth path to recovery.

When Extraction is the Best Option

Your oral health and comfort are always our top priority. We’ll always recommend conservative treatments to preserve your natural teeth, but there are situations where the best step for your long term comfort is a dental extraction. Among several reasons, this may be due to severe decay, irreparable cracked teeth, overcrowding, or severe gum disease. We’ll carefully assess your situation and discuss why extraction might be the most beneficial choice for you. We always strive to preserve your natural teeth, but when extraction is necessary, rest assured it’s for the long term health of your smile.

A Gentler Tooth Extraction

At North Brooklyn Dental Care, we understand that the thought of tooth extraction can be daunting. Our emphasis is on providing a gentler extraction experience. We prioritize your comfort, using advanced techniques and local anesthesia to ensure you feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. Once the area is numb, the tooth is gently loosened and lifted from the socket. Our caring team will guide you through the process, addressing any concerns and ensuring you feel confident in the care you receive. Tooth extractions generally take around a half hour, and we’ll work patiently at your pace to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience.

Smooth Recovery From Tooth Extractions

Recovery from a tooth extraction is a crucial phase, and we’re here to make it as smooth as possible. Here are a few simple steps to follow for a better tooth extraction recovery:

  • Avoid Strenuous Activity and Exercise: For the first couple days, count on taking things easy. Especially if your work is physical, we may suggest taking a day or two off work until the area has begun to heal.
  • Avoid Hard and Crunchy Foods: The extraction site will be sensitive, so stick to soft foods like pasta, well-cooked potatoes, yogurt, and eggs for the first couple days.
  • Rinse and Clean Regularly: Rinse your mouth gently a couple times a day with lukewarm water or antimicrobial mouthwash. Continue to gently brush and floss daily, avoiding direct contact with the extraction site.
  • Avoid Straws and Smoking: The pressure from sucking can dislodge healing blood clots or irritate the extraction site.

Your peace of mind is our priority. Taking simple precautionary steps can avoid any complications from a tooth extraction infection or painful dry sockets.
