The second most common disease in the United States is tooth decay. The first is the common cold.
Teeth may need to be removed for many reasons – advanced decay, periodontal disease, trauma or fracture, or in orthodontic treatment because of crowding or poor positioning in the jaws. Our oral surgeons in NYC use the same skills and expertise in these extractions as in the removal of impacted teeth. In many cases bone grafting can be done to allow later placement of dental implants to replace the missing teeth and in some cases immediate implants can be placed. Our doctors will discuss all the various options with you at your first visit. As with impacted teeth, dental extractions are performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize patient comfort.
