Tooth Extractions in Gasport, NY

At Dentistry by Dr. Kaplansky, we believe that your natural teeth should remain in your mouth where they belong! We will do everything we can to help you keep your natural teeth; however, certain circumstances may arise in which you need a tooth removed:

If a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, it may need to be removed. If a tooth is infected, it may also need to be removed in order to prevent the infection from spreading. In some cases, wisdom teeth may need to be removed because they are Impacted (stuck and unable to erupt through the gum) or they may be causing crowding in the mouth. If you are getting braces, any teeth that are in the way of the braces may need to be removed. Your dentist will always try to save your natural teeth; however, there are some situations in which removal is necessary. Dentistry by Dr. Kaplansky offers tooth extractions as one of our many dental services. We understand that losing a tooth can be a difficult experience; however, our team is here to support you every step of the way!

Severe Decay is one of the main reasons why people have to get teeth extracted. Severe Decay occurs when the tooth decay has reached a point where it is beyond the point of being repaired with a root canal or other treatment. When this happens, it is important to get the tooth removed because if the decay is left untreated, it could lead to an infection. An infection can cause an abscess at the tooth’s root. If the infection is not treated, it could spread and cause more harm. Severe Decay is something that should be taken seriously and treated as soon as possible to avoid any further damage.

Crowding can cause a number of problems, including difficulty cleaning your teeth and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you have crowding, your dentist may recommend removing one or more teeth to create more space. This could help prepare your mouth for orthodontic treatment. In some cases, crowding can also be caused by large teeth or a misaligned jaw. In these cases, dental surgery may be required to correct the problem. If you are concerned about crowding, talk to your dentist to find out if treatment is necessary.

Trauma to the teeth is not uncommon and can happen as the result of an accident or a fall. In some cases, the damage may be minor and the tooth can be repaired. However, if the injury is more severe, the tooth may need to be extracted. This can be a difficult decision for patients and their families, but it is sometimes necessary in order to preserve oral health. The removal of a tooth can be a simple procedure, but it is also a major surgery. Patients should weigh the risks and benefits of extraction before making a decision.

In some cases, Dr. Kaplansky will recommend having them removed in order to avoid future problems. Tooth extractions can be a difficult and painful experience, but Dr. Kaplansky is experienced in performing this procedure quickly and efficiently. He will work with you to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process. With over 20 years of experience, you can rest assured that you are in good hands with Dr. Kaplansky.

How Is a Tooth Removed?

When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, it may need to be extracted, or removed, from the mouth. Before our dentist in Lockport, NY performs an extraction, Dr. Kaplansky will administer a numbing agent so that you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. He will then use forceps to gently rock the tooth back and forth in your mouth until it comes loose. The wound at the extraction site will be carefully closed, and you’ll be given instructions for proper at-home care during the healing process. Dr. Kaplansky may also prescribe medication to help with any soreness experienced after the extraction. Extraction is usually a last resort when it comes to dental care, but in some cases, it is the best option for restoring your oral health.

Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience, both emotionally and aesthetically. Fortunately, there are many options available for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Kaplansky can help you to choose the best solution for your needs, whether it’s a denture, dental implant, or bridge. Dentures are the most traditional option, and they can be either partial or full. Dental implants are permanent replacements that are fused to the jawbone, and they can be used to support a single tooth, a bridge, or a denture. Bridges are false teeth that are supported by the teeth on either side of the gap. No matter which option you choose, you can rest assured that your smile will be whole again.
