Tooth Extractions Paramus NJ

Do I need a Tooth Extraction?

You and Dr. DeFalco 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. DeFalco will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

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.

Patient may want to consider saving stem cells from their teeth for use in future medical treatments. 

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. DeFalco took me in as an emergency. His staff made the entire process easy - patient forms, insurance, everything. On the day of the procedure, I was taken in at the scheduled time (zero wait time), and was finished pain-free in about 15 minutes. The entire visit could not have been better. I am grateful to Dr. DeFalco and all his staff for their care, compassion, and professionalism.

Dr D has so much love for what he does and he cares so much about his patients. How many offices call you the next day , to see how you feel? Not too many in my opinion. People need a Dentist that is a one on one, not these big offices that everytime you go there you see someone else. I want and need a one on one and Dr D delivers this to the max.... Love all of the staff and do not have any fears when I walk in the door.

Thank you for the fantastic extraction procedure. The scheduling was easy, the staff extremely professional, and Dr. DeFalco made a rather complicated extraction (of an impacted canine tooth) completely painless and worry-free. He took the time before the extraction to have a thorough consultation and prepare everything for the surgery. There was little discomfort after the surgery and absolutely no pain! I am extremely terrified of getting any serious dentistry or oral surgery work done in my mouth but after going to Dr. DeFalco's office it isn't even scary anymore. That's how smooth it was. I highly recommend Dr. DeFalco's office to anyone!!
