Tooth Extractions

You and Dr. Costello may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. Costello will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

For more information about tooth extractions, or to make an appointment, call our Maywood Office at Maywood Phone Number 201-712-5556, or our Franklin Lakes Office Franklin Lakes Phone Number 201-848-5015 today. You may also use our Contact Us form. Please also read testimonials from our satisfied patients below.

The Tooth Extraction Process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

Sectioning a Tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

Dr. Costello, along with his Staff, were very accommodating, professional and immediately put me at ease. My dental experiences, for extractions, were painless during the procedures, as well as the healing periods afterward. I have already recommended a friend to this practice and would not hesitate to refer another.
