Dr. Elliott Ostro doesn’t like to extract teeth unless its absolutely necessary and all other restorative options were attempted to save the tooth. But when restoration procedures like root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not even to save a tooth, our Midtown Center oral surgeon will suggest that it be pulled or extracted for the sake of the health of your entire mouth.

Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before thanks to safe and effective sedatives and anesthetics. In many cases, patients who have their teeth pulled with Dr. Elliott Ostro at his oral surgery practice in New York City only experience slight discomfort and minor bleeding. Before the tooth is extracted, the area will be numbed during an injectable or topical anesthetics like Novocaine. Once the anesthetic kicks in, our Midtown Center oral surgeons will remove the infected or decayed tooth. Following the procedure, Dr. Ostro will instruct you on proper precautions and after care so that you don’t get an infection. Occasionally, you will be prescribed an antibiotic following a tooth extraction as a precautionary measure to fight infections.

There is some after care involved in a tooth extraction. In order to heal properly and make sure the wound does not open, Dr. Elliott Ostro discourages you from smoking, vigorous brushing and rinsing, and drinking liquids through straws. To promote faster healing and reduce swelling, our oral surgeon recommend applying a cold compress to the outside cheek near the extraction area.

Bone Grafts Midtown Manhattan

Bone Grafts Midtown Manhattan

If you’re living with missing teeth, you’re causing damage to your jawbone by not visiting your dentist to receive a dental implant or another restorative dental procedure to replace the missing tooth. Over time, the jawbone underneath your missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed, leaving an unsuitable condition for the placement of dental implants. With bone grafting, we now have the ability to grow bone where needed, which not only allows your Central Park oral surgeon to place dental implants of the proper length and width, but gives us the opportunity to restore function and aesthetic appearance. Inadequate bone structure can be the result of previous extractions, gum disease or traumatic jaw injuries.

Major bone grafts repair defects of the jaw and require a hospital stay. The bone is obtained either from a tissue bank or your own bone from the jaw, hip or tibia. Bone grafts positively impact the health and stability of your teeth in two ways: jaw stabilization and preservation. Bone grafting stabilizes and helps restore the jaw foundation for restorative or implant surgery. Additionally, bone grafting can limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction, periodontal disease or other invasive processes. Once a bone graft is complete, you’ll be able to replace your missing teeth with a dental implant. Central Park Oral Surgeon, Dr. Ostro also performs surgical placement of dental implants, along with bone grafts.
