Dr. John Tortora may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted due to severe decay or advanced periodontal disease. Others, because they have broken in such a way that they cannot be repaired. Our dentist may even recommend a tooth extraction when your teeth are poorly positioned in the mouth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. We invite you to call us at 732-295-1616 for more information about tooth extractions in Brick, New Jersey, and make your appointment at our practice.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your ability to chew, your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, all of which can have a major impact on your dental health and overall wellbeing. To avoid these complications, our dentist will discuss alternatives to tooth extraction as well as replacement options for your tooth.
When our dentist extracts your tooth he will numb the tooth, jawbone, and surrounding gums with a local anesthetic, so that you will feel the pressure of the extraction without the accompanying pain.
Common replacements for teeth include dental implants and dental bridges.
