At Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, we prioritize preserving natural teeth whenever possible. However, when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to save, Dr. Brian Hirschfield provides gentle tooth extraction services. Our goal is to ensure your comfort and health with a focus on minimally invasive techniques and post-extraction care to speed recovery and maintain your oral health.

Tooth extraction may be necessary for several reasons, including severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, or to make room for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Hirschfield uses precise techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure a smooth procedure. We also offer options for replacing extracted teeth, such as dental implants or bridges, to restore functionality and aesthetics to your smile.

Reasons for Tooth Extractions

  • Severe Decay or Infection: When a tooth cannot be saved by a root canal or other treatments.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Removing problematic wisdom teeth that may cause pain or misalignment of other teeth.
  • Orthodontic Preparation: Extracting one or more teeth to facilitate the alignment process in orthodontic treatment.
  • Risk of Infection: In some cases, such as chemotherapy or organ transplantation, extracting teeth may reduce the risk of serious infections.

Commitment to Patient Comfort and Care

Dr. Hirschfield and the team at Lakeview Dental are committed to making your tooth extraction as pain-free as possible.

After your extraction, we provide detailed aftercare instructions to promote healing and prevent complications, such as dry socket.
