Tooth Removal

Sometimes oral diseases make it such that your dentist or oral and
maxillofacial surgeon cannot save a tooth.  On other occasions, time, effort, economics, insurance and other factors make it necessary to remove a tooth to maintain good oral health.  The surgical term to describe removal of a tooth is extraction.  There are many different types of extractions done daily in the oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s office. Dr. Falcone is an expert at removal of all types of teeth. He performs this surgery thousands of times a year in his office.

Tooth removal is the most common surgery that oral and maxillofacial surgeons such as Dr. Falcone perform.  Extractions can routinely be performed quickly, painlessly and with minimal post-operative discomfort in an oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s office.  Dr. Falcone caters to patients with anxiety over this type of surgery.

Extraction of teeth can be performed with local anesthesia only (novocaine) or with other modalities for pain and anxiety control such as oral sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as well as intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.

Dr. Falcone can also advise you what can be done once a tooth has been extracted. Additional procedures can be performed to help you maintain that fantastic smile.  Dental implants are just one of the options available to keep you smiling and chewing your food efficiently.

If you have any questions, call our office and Dr. Falcone and his staff will be happy to answer any concerns that you may have.
