It is always optimal to keep your natural teeth, but sometimes it becomes necessary to extract a tooth. This can be due to a severe infection, damage or trauma and the tooth is beyond saving. In these cases, Dr. Jaskiel will extract the tooth painlessly.

Dr Jaskiel at Brickell Avenue dentistry in Miami uses a minimal approach to removing a tooth while doing a tooth extraction or Oral Surgery.

Instead of using brute force he uses finesse with small instruments and takes his time to limit or eliminate the amount of post-op pain. See the video of an actual patient to see how quick and painless an extraction of a wisdom tooth can be.

There is no need to worry about this procedure: patients report it is painless, and Dr. Jaskiel’s gentle and sure techniques make it an easy process.

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.

Why should I remove my wisdom tooth?

  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

Platelet Rich Fibrin or PRF for Dental Extractions and Dental Implants

Natural Dentist Associates uses Platelet Rich Fibrin ( PRF ) in many dental surgical procedures such as tooth extractions, dental implants and bone pathology sometimes called cavitations. PRF accelerates the healing process, decreases surgical pain and swelling for dental implants and Wisdom Tooth Removal. PRF also improves the strength of bone osseointegration to implants. PRF is a Holistic and Biological Dentist Service

How to Make PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin

The PRF process is very easy. Basically we draw one vial of blood per surgical site. The blood taking process is exactly the same as when blood is taken during a routine medical physical. The use of Platelet Rich Fibrin, PRF, protects the bony surgical site from infection, accelerates the healing process and decreases pain after a procedure. Platelet Rich Fibrin treatment is 100% natural and we do not use any additives or preservatives. The blood is drawn immediately prior to the procedure normally while the patient is getting numb for the surgery. The blood is then put into a centrifuge at 2700RPM for 13 minutes. After 13 minutes, the blood is separated into 3 layers:

  1. clear liquid or plasma layer
  2. red layer rich in red blood cells
  3. yellow thick layer which is the PRF layer.

What is PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin?

The PRF Layer is a yellow and thick jello-like biologic material derived from spinning patient blood in a centrifuge at 2700RPM for 13 minutes. PRF is a great service for any Biological Dentist doing oral surgeon services. The PRF layer is rich in fibrin, platelets white blood cells and bone growth factors. PRF is a much better alternative to sending a tooth removal patient home with an unfilled bony extraction socket or implant site. PRF is used in dental surgical sites such as wisdom teeth extraction and dental implant surgical sites.

PRF dentistWhy PRF and how does Platelet Rich Fibrin Work?

During Oral surgery, the patients jaw bone is exposed. In bone there is very little blood supply as compared to other tissues in the human body. In areas where there is less blood, the body has less ability to heal quickly and less defense against infection. At Natural Dentist Associates, we place PRF into tooth extraction sites and implant sites. For example, when a dental extraction is performed, we will place the Platelet Rich Fibrin into the tooth extraction site. In the absence of the PRF, dental extractions sites are commonly left to heal open to the oral cavity. During tooth extraction site healing, saliva, bacteria and other contaminants are free to pour down into the jaw bone. When PRF is placed into the extraction site, the PRF protects the site from infection and enriches the area with proteins that accelerate healing. In sites where implants are placed, the PRF occupies the space between the extraction site and the dental implant. Placement of PRF in dental implant sites decreases implant healing time and decreases the chance for dental implant failure.
