Tooth Extraction

Overcrowding, decay, and other oral health issues can cause severe pain and discomfort for patients.

Though avoided in dentistry unless necessary, tooth extraction can offer relief from painful dental health problems.

Dr. Joseph T. Mormino makes tooth extraction a gentle process for patients of Staten Island, NY.

When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Dentists prefer to avoid tooth extraction, but if an oral health problem has progressed past treatment, tooth extraction is necessary to avoid further oral health issues. 

Severe Tooth Decay

Tooth decay that has progressed past fillings and crowns for treatment can benefit from a tooth extraction.

Advanced Gum Disease

If a tooth is loose and shifting from advanced gum disease, the structure may be compromised to the point of needing an extraction.

Dental Trauma

Severe dental trauma, particularly under the gums, may require a tooth extraction.

Severe Tooth Crowding

For those with small jaws that don't allow room for all 32 teeth, tooth extraction can provide comfort.

Severe Dental Abscess

If the dental abscess has progressed past a root canal treatment, tooth extraction may be necessary to clear the infection. 

Wisdom Teeth Procedure

Removing wisdom teeth before or as they arrive can help prevent impacted and shifting teeth.

Baby Tooth Removal

If a patient still has an intact baby tooth while the permanent tooth emerges, extraction can provide additional space for the adult smile to grow.

Before going to Dr. Mormino, I had always feared going to the dentist. My anxiety would kick in the day before any appointment. Since meeting Dr. Mormino and his staff, I no longer have fear going to the dentist...

Meet Us for a Consultation

Dr. Mormino will examine the state of your teeth and determine if you're a candidate for tooth extraction. Our Staten Island office doesn't handle the extraction of impacted teeth, but we can refer you to a specialist who does.

The Day of Your Procedure

You may be nervous when you arrive at our practice on the day of your procedure. Our dentistry office has many features, such as heated neck pillows, TV and music in every room, and beverages that ease nerves accompanying oral surgery and make the day of your procedure comfortable from beginning to end.

Sedation Provides Enhanced Comfort

If you're nervous about your tooth extraction, our office has sedation options available to put you at ease. These sedation methods are helpful for patients with arthritis, Parkinson's, and other conditions that make comfortably sitting still difficult. Our dentist will review your sedation options before the day of the procedure. 

Removing the Tooth

During simple extractions, our dentist will loosen your tooth before gently removing it from the socket. The gum tissue at the extraction site may not even need stitches. Right after the extraction, bleeding will occur at the gums, but gauze alone can help the blood clot.

Consider Replacing the Extracted Tooth

A Closer Look at the Tooth Extraction Process

Tooth Replacements Post-Extraction

After your tooth has been extracted, the dentist may recommend a replacement tooth in its place. These tooth replacement options can help you avoid dental complications caused by missing teeth.

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges typically replace 2 to 4 teeth in a row and can be supported by the adjacent natural teeth or a dental implant. 

Dentures

If more than four teeth in a dental arch are removed, our dentist may recommend you get dentures. Implants are recommended to pair with partial and full dentures.

Dental Implant

Dental implants can help restore a single missing tooth with a crown or support a dental bridge or dentures for multiple missing teeth.

Implant Placement

Dr. Mormino offers implants to support dental bridges and dentures.

Why is it Important to Replace the Extracted Teeth?

A replacement tooth should always be applied post-extraction, unless the dentist removed your wisdom teeth or performed the extraction to avoid overcrowding. Your mouth will try to accommodate for the open tooth space, which can lead to more significant oral health problems like:
