Tooth Extractions in Staten Island


On average, adults have 32 teeth, including wisdom teeth.

Why would I need a tooth extracted?

Tooth extractions are performed for various reasons, including:

1. Severe Tooth Decay: If a tooth is extensively decayed and cannot be saved with a filling or crown, extraction may be the best option to prevent further damage and infection.

2. Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often don't have enough space to fully emerge or grow properly. This can lead to pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. Removing impacted wisdom teeth can prevent these complications.

3. Orthodontic Treatment: In some cases, tooth extractions are necessary to create space for orthodontic treatment. Removing a tooth can help align the remaining teeth properly and improve the overall appearance and function of your smile.

I loved the dentist waiting room. Very clean and offer coffee and snacks. The girls are so helpful and pleasant. Very efficient and nice. The Dentist was so nice, very concerned about about my tooth and gave me all the options I had. She explained everything so I knew what I had to decide what I wanted.

Dr. Ronan is outstanding. She is the perfect combination of conservative and action-taking for cavities and decay. She is calm & intelligent while carefully and completely examining your teeth. She works fast and her staff is seamless with her. Nicole at the front is incredible with appointments, insurance, and all questions. The facility is beautiful - I genuinely forgot I was in a dental office. I am blown away and left with an appointment for others in my family & a new tooth brush.

This dental appointment was a 10/10 from start to finish, when I walked in I was greeted by Nicole and Mitzi who were so sweet and friendly, the office was clean and very nice. When I met with Dr. Ronan I appreciated her getting to know me since it was my first appointment. I’ve never felt so comfortable in an Drs office before! Dr. Ronan’s knowledge and bedside manner is unmatched! Truly a great office with an amazing team!

Today was my first day in the office the staff and the Dr. made me feel like I was going there for 10 plus years. I felt not only comfortable and confident and am so happy I found them. If you need a dentist I highly recommend them. I don't give them 5 stars I give them 10!

The Benefits of Tooth Extractions

Relief from Pain and Discomfort

Tooth extractions provide immediate relief from toothaches caused by severe decay or infection. By removing the source of the pain, you can enjoy a pain-free and comfortable oral condition.

Prevention of Oral Infections

Infected teeth can spread bacteria to other parts of your mouth and even your body. By extracting the infected tooth, you can prevent the spread of infection and protect your overall health.

Improved Oral Health

Tooth extractions can help improve your oral health by eliminating overcrowding, reducing the risk of gum disease, and creating space for orthodontic treatment if needed. By addressing these issues, you can achieve a healthier and more attractive smile.

The Tooth Extraction Process

Evaluation and Planning

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ronan will carefully examine your teeth and determine if a tooth extraction is necessary. X-rays may be taken to assess the position and condition of the tooth. A personalized treatment plan will be created based on your specific needs.

Numbing the Area

Before the extraction, a local anesthetic will be administered to ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. Dr. Ronan will discuss the anesthetic options with you and address any concerns you may have.

Tooth Extraction

Using specialized tools, Dr. Ronan will gently loosen the tooth and carefully remove it from its socket. If necessary, stitches may be placed to promote proper healing. Dr. Ronan will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are tooth extractions painful?

Tooth extractions are typically not painful during the procedure itself. Your Staten Island dentist or oral surgeon will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to be extracted. This ensures that you won't feel pain during the extraction. In more complex cases, sedation options may also be available to help you relax and alleviate anxiety.

After the extraction, you may experience some discomfort, but it's usually manageable with over-the-counter pain medication prescribed by your dentist. Any post-extraction pain should subside within a few days as your mouth heals.

What is the recovery process like after a tooth extraction?

The recovery process following a tooth extraction typically involves some initial discomfort, swelling, and possibly bruising. Your dentist will provide post-operative instructions, which often include biting on gauze to control bleeding, avoiding vigorous rinsing or spitting for the first 24 hours to protect the blood clot, adhering to a soft diet, maintaining oral hygiene carefully, and using pain medication as prescribed. Rest and avoiding strenuous activities are recommended, and attending follow-up appointments ensures your dentist can monitor healing and address any concerns.

What will happen if I don't get my wisdom teeth extracted?

If you choose not to have your wisdom teeth extracted when they are causing problems, several issues can arise. These include pain and discomfort, potential tooth damage due to crowding or impaction, increased risk of infections and inflammation, the development of cysts or tumors (though rare), and potential orthodontic complications. Consulting with your dentist or oral surgeon to evaluate your specific situation and determine whether wisdom tooth extraction is recommended is essential to prevent these potential complications and ensure the long-term health of your oral cavity.
