There are a number of reasons why Dr. Eftihia Thomopoulos may recommend tooth extraction in Rego Park, New York.
- If you have a crowded mouth, pulling a tooth/teeth may allow your other teeth to align properly.
- If there is not room in the mouth for a tooth to break through the gums, your dentist may see fit to pull it.
- If your tooth is too severely infected for root canal therapy to save it, extraction may be necessary.
- If your immune system is compromised because of chemotherapy or another medical procedure, even the risk of infection is reason enough to pull a tooth.
Before pulling the tooth, our dentist will numb the area surrounding the tooth. In some cases, the tooth may be impacted, requiring the gum and bone tissue to be cut away. We then remove the tooth, using the greatest skill and care possible. Our dentist has a gentle touch, and our entire team is committed to providing you with a dental experience that is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. In some cases, Dr. Eftihia Thomopoulos will stitch the gum edges closed. We invite you to call or visit our dental office today with any questions and to schedule an appointment!
