MIAMI TOOTH EXTRACTION SPECIALIST

In cases where the teeth are misaligned, it may be necessary to extract one or more teeth to ensure orthodontic treatment is successful. Making room for the teeth to move into alignment is necessary when the arch is narrow, causing some of the teeth to rotate or move out of alignment due to crowding. As the majority of these patients are children, Dr. Jaskiel explains the procedure to them and does nothing sudden or surprising. His calm cheerful attitude instills confidence in his patients, particularly the younger ones.

DISPELLING FEAR OF TOOTH EXTRACTION

At Brickell Avenue Dentistry in Miami, Dr. Jaskiel routinely performs gentle tooth extraction to relieve pain, treat abscessed teeth and to prepare for other restorative work. His gentle calm manner sets the tone of the procedure which most patients are delighted to find is painless and fast.

The procedure is done after the tooth is completely numbed and the patient is prepared for the slight pressure that signals the offending tooth is out.

Recovery is usually a matter of keeping the tooth socket free of food and debris and following simple instructions such as not drinking hot liquids, not using a straw and not brushing the area for a few days.

A protective blood clot forms in the socket of any tooth removed. The purpose is to protect the area from bacteria and to provide a buffer against saliva and other substances until it is healed. Leaving the clot in place by following the post extraction instructions is simple and within a few days dental hygiene can return to normal.

REPLACING AN EXTRACTED TOOTH

It is best, in most cases, to replace an extracted tooth with a bridge or an implant. If the empty socket is not filled, then the surrounding teeth can become loose and shift position, and the bone that held the tooth could deteriorate. Dr. Jaskiel will go over with you exactly what to expect and what your best options are for replacing the tooth.

You can rest assured that even though you may lose a tooth, we will make sure the final result will have you showing off a beautiful smile once again.

WISDOM TEETH

Extracting wisdom teeth before they cause problems is becoming commonplace. These last permanent teeth, the third set of molars, usually appear in the late teens or early twenties. Occasionally the wisdom teeth never develop and in other cases the wisdom teeth only partially erupt.

Impacted wisdom teeth are painful and can be very difficult to extract when growing at an angle or if they have become infected. They are unnecessary for chewing and if they do erupt, they are prone to decay. It is very difficult to properly clean at the very back of the mouth when the teeth are crowded together. For these reasons many young adults opt to proactively have these teeth removed before they erupt or cause problems.

We believe not all wisdom teeth have to be removed, but if it does, Removing a wisdom tooth early can prevent many problems in the future.

  1. If they are impossible to clean
  2. Affecting the tooth next to it
  3. Partially out so food and debris gets under the gums leading to decay or infection.
  4. Pain
