Are you looking for a Tooth extraction dentist in Schenectady NY? When people think of having their teeth pulled they think pain. Well at Advanced Aesthetics Dentistry performs painless and efficient tooth extractions.  Dr. Oyangen has been extracting teeth for nearly 30 years.

Reasons a tooth may be pulled

  • Preparation for orthodontics
  • A mouth that is overcrowded to allow new teeth to grow in properly come in
  • An impacted tooth
  • A tooth that is too badly infected to be saved with root canal therapy
  • The risk of infection in patients with a compromised immune system
  • The loosening of teeth caused by gingivitis which is the start of Gum Disease

Tooth Extraction Post Care

  • Take painkillers as prescribed by our dentist
  • Bite on a gauze pad for three to four hours after extraction to reduce bleeding
  • Apply ice to the area to control swelling
  • Relax for at least 24 hours and limit your activity for a few days
  • Do not rinse or spit vigorously for at least 24 hours
  • Do not drink from a straw for 24 hours
  • Eat soft foods like soup, pudding, and yogurt on the day of the extraction
