Tooth Extraction

Your Yonkers dentist only pulls teeth when necessary. Wisdom tooth extraction and emergency tooth extraction are two examples. With sedation dentistry, you won't feel any pain, although there may be some mild pain after tooth extractions. To prevent tooth extraction infection and promote tooth extraction healing, practice healthy tooth extraction aftercare habits. Same-day tooth extractions are possible only if warranted.

When your top Yonkers dentist performs a tooth extraction including same day tooth extraction, he removes the tooth from its socket below the gun line.

While there are many reasons for pulling a tooth — accident, injury, extensive decay or overcrowding — your dentist, open on Saturdays in the Yonkers, only pulls a tooth if it can't be saved.

Reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • A tooth is damaged and cannot be repaired
  • A loose tooth that shows no signs of healing
  • Any infected tooth that can't be healed
  • Extra teeth present that prevents other teeth from coming in
  • Severe malocclusion requiring some teeth to be removed to make more room
  • Wisdom tooth extraction when teeth show signs of decay or are prone to infection

If you present any of these symptoms, you may need to undergo an emergency tooth extraction or a same-day tooth extraction. An untreated infection may be life-threatening, and all these conditions are painful.

Visit your top Yonkers dentist who can perform the same day tooth extraction, and emergency tooth removal even on a weekend. The longer you wait, the worse your condition can get. Find a Saturday dentist or Sunday dentist if necessary. Don't wait longer than you have to.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction with Sedation Dentistry

If you're having a wisdom tooth extraction, you may need panoramic X-rays of your entire mouth before the sedation dentistry, a common practice for a same-day extraction. Some dentists prescribe antibiotics before or after your surgery if:

  • You show signs of infection.
  • You have a weakened immune system.
  • You expect to have a longer-than-usual surgery.
  • You have a medical condition that needs monitoring.

Your dentist numbs your tooth and gums with a local anesthetic. You may get an intravenous (IV) anesthetic, which ranges from general anesthesia, which knocks you out, to sedation dentistry, which just relaxes you. In either case, even for same day wisdom tooth extraction you need to arrange a ride to get home. Don't drink or eat anything six to eight hours prior to a sedation dentistry appointment for same day wisdom tooth extraction or emergency tooth removal.
