At Sicklerville Smiles, we understand that tooth extractions can be a daunting experience. That’s why we use the latest techniques to make the procedure as comfortable and efficient as possible.

Think you might need a tooth extraction?

A person’s teeth are supposed to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes a tooth extraction is needed in order to keep a mouth healthy. Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the bone. This can occur for a number of different reasons. If a tooth is too broken or damaged by decay to be fixed with a filling, crown or other treatment, tooth extraction is the only option.

Dr. Aryam Modesto and her team of dental professionals can help! Call 856.728.9200 or Schedule an Appointment online.

Other times a tooth may need to be extracted are if:

  • Extra teeth are blocking other teeth from coming in
  • Baby teeth don’t fall out in time
  • A patient gets braces and needs room for the teeth being moved into place
  • Patients receiving radiation to the head and neck need to have teeth removed that are in the field of radiation
  • Patients are taking cancer drugs, which weaken the immune system, get infected teeth.
  • A patient has wisdom teeth. Especially if there is more than one and they are impacted
  • There is a risk of infection to the body or teeth

To prepare for a tooth extraction Dr. Aryam Modesto, will take an x-ray of the area where the tooth needs to be removed to plan the next best course of action. A panoramic x-ray may be necessary if the patient is having a wisdom tooth removed. This shows the dentist the relationship of the wisdom teeth to other teeth, infections, or bone disease that may be present as well as how close the teeth are to sinuses and nerves. Antibiotics may be prescribed to the patients before or after surgery in case of infection, weakened immune system, or a particularly long surgery. If conscious sedation or general anesthesia is deemed necessary, a referral  to an oral surgeon can be provided.

If you have any questions call Dr. Aryam Modesto at Sicklerville Smiles at 856.728.9200.
