Sick and tired of hearing that popping, clicking sound? Of course you are. But it’s been going on so long, you might not even notice it as much. Of course, everyone else definitely does. These sounds are red flags that are byproducts of a jaw condition known as TMJ. If it’s also paired with persistent pain, it’s time to see a professional. You won’t find a better one than Elliot Ostro. Head over as soon as possible for first-rate TMJ treatment NYC.

What’s the source of that discomforting sound, anyway? We’re getting to that part. The development of TMJ occurs when the bones (or parts of them) interact with the joint are layered in cartilage, separated by a small shock-absorbing disk—responsible for maintaining smooth movement. Pain can kick into TMJ if any of the following happens: the joint is damaged by an impact or a blow, arthritis damages the joint’s cartilage, the disk is misaligned or erodes. Some people are more susceptible than others to developing this nagging condition. Some of the highest risk factors include: various forms of arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis), jaw injury, long-term cleaning or grinding of teeth, and connective tissue diseases which create problems within the temporomandibular joint. Maybe your eyes glazed over by the time the third multisyllabic term came into play. Totally understandable. For further clarification (or for treatment) don’t hesitate to contact a professional to finally be done with this discomfort. Head over to Elliot Ostro’s office. And take a giant step toward TMJ treatment NYC.

Tooth Extractions in New York City

One of the most dreaded dental procedures for patients is having a tooth pulled or extracted. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear. However, at the dental office of Elliott Ostro DMD, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. Dr. Ochoa is a highly experienced oral surgeon who specializes in tooth extractions in New York City, as well as cosmetic dentistry and will be sure to make your entire experience in extraction and replacement is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.

There are several reasons why a tooth may have to be extracted. Of course, Dr. Ostro will make every effort to repair and restore your tooth. However, sometimes an extraction is unavoidable. This may be due to severe tooth damage or trauma. For example, teeth affected by advanced gum (periodontal) disease may need to be pulled. Malpositioned or non-functioning teeth may need to be extracted by your dentist in order to avoid possible complications that may result in an eventual, negative impact on your oral teeth. For orthodontic treatment, such as braces, teeth may need to be extracted to make space for improved teeth alignment. Also, extra teeth, also referred to as supernumerary teeth, will be pulled so that they don’t block other teeth from erupting. Teeth are pulled either by simple extraction, which are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, or by surgical extraction. Once your teeth extraction in New York City is complete, however, you may very well be interested in replacing it. An option for replacing missing teeth is with a cosmetic and restorative dental procedure. Dental implants, for example, are titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in your jaw to serve as an artificial tooth root. This method allows us to avoid placing a dental bridge, which can weaken the adjacent natural teeth. Since dental implants are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and since they do not alter the structure and integrity of the adjacent teeth, an implant it the next best thing to your natural tooth.

If it is decided that your tooth is beyond repair and restoration, then a tooth extraction in New York City may be the best option to ensure your oral health. Regardless of the exact reason for you tooth extraction, Dr. Ostro is highly experienced in both simple and surgical extractions as well as dental implants. This ensures the entire form, function, and beauty of your mouth is taken care of, from extraction to replacement. So whether you require our services to remove a tooth, to replace a tooth, (or both!) please call our office or consult our website for more information.

After tooth extraction, it’s important for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. That’s why we ask you to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes after the appointment. If the bleeding or oozing still persists, place another gauze pad and bite firmly for another 30 minutes. You may have to do this several times.

After the blood clot forms, it is important not to disturb or dislodge the clot as it aids healing. Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 72 hours. These activities will dislodge or dissolve the clot and retard the healing process. Limit vigorous exercise for the next 24 hours as this will increase blood pressure and may cause more bleeding from the extraction site.

After the tooth is extracted you may feel some pain and experience some swelling. An ice pack or an unopened bag of frozen peas or corn applied to the area will keep swelling to a minimum. Take pain medications as prescribed. The swelling usually subsides after 48 hours. Need to get a tooth removed? Call At Dr. Ostro at 212-223-8311.
