Extractions in Jamesville, NY

There is any number of reasons you may need a tooth, but you can count on our team to keep you comfortable and see you through the process.

Reasons You May Need a Tooth Pulled in Jamesville, NY

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, a tooth is too damaged by trauma or decay to remain viable. Holding on to such a tooth causes pain and can even compromise your healthy teeth. In this case, Dr. Kurt D’Amico recommends dental extraction.

If your wisdom teeth are pushing against your adult teeth, or not erupting correctly, extractions are the best course. You don’t need wisdom teeth, which come in later than your adult teeth, to chew or smile. Painful wisdom teeth can change the course of your oral health and comfort, as well. Dr. D’Amico assesses your wisdom teeth and often recommends extraction.

Extractions for Invisalign or Orthodontics

If you’re considering Invisalign in Jamesville, NY, extractions may be necessary before starting this tooth-straightening therapy. Often a jaw is too small to accommodate full arch of teeth. This spacing problem leads to twisting and overlapping. With this type of extraction, no one will notice the missing tooth or teeth following Invisalign therapy.

Tooth Replacement Options

If you have a tooth pulled in Jamesville, NY because of decay or trauma, your friendly and compassionate dentist can help you recover your smile with a tooth replacement.

We offer a variety of options, including:

  • Partial dentures to stand in for partial tooth loss
  • Crowns and bridges to close the gap in your smile
  • Dental implants to replace your tooth and your root
  • Implant-supported restorations to provide a fixed appliance

If you’re considering dentures and have a few teeth remaining, extractions may be your best option if you want a full denture. With a partial denture, your remaining teeth must be healthy enough to support the appliance. If the remaining teeth are not healthy, extractions are likely the best course.

Your dentist in Jamesville, NY will go over your options with you to help you make the best choice for your smile.

Preventing Decay

The best way to avoid needing a tooth pulled in Jamesville, NY, due to trauma or decay is to brush and floss twice daily and visit your dental office twice yearly for preventive dentistry and comprehensive teeth cleanings. Also, if you grind and clench your teeth (bruxism), ask Dr. D’Amico about a custom nightguard. If you play on a sports team, see about a mouthguard as well.
