Tooth Extractions in Orangeburg, NY

At Dental Arts of Rockland, we strive to help our patients preserve their natural smile, even in cases of severe decay or damage. However, there are times when the best way to save your smile is to remove one or more teeth. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gums. This is generally used for a tooth that is decayed or damaged beyond repair. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that has not erupted above the gumline. Surgical extractions are most frequently performed to remove wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that don't have sufficient space to fit into your mouth. Regardless of your reason for having an extraction, our team is happy to help with a customized treatment plan. Our Orangeburg, NY practice offers sedation options, including nitrous oxide, to help patients remain comfortable during their procedure. Get in touch with our team to learn more or to schedule an exam, and find out if a tooth extraction is the best treatment for your dental health.

Extractions are performed using local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth being removed. Nitrous oxide sedation may be used depending on the degree of the procedure and to help you stay relaxed in case you have any anxiety. For your comfort and entertainment, we can also provide a variety of amenities, including heated blankets, eye masks, music, and a TV screen to allow you to catch up on your favorite show. Once you are prepared, we will begin the procedure. For a simple extraction, we will loosen up the tooth with a special device called an elevator before removing the tooth. A surgical extraction entails making incisions in your gums to get to the tooth. If necessary, the tooth could be broken into smaller pieces so it can be removed. Once the tooth is removed, we will stitch the incision in the gums. We may write a prescription for antibiotics that should be taken prior to and following the process — in case you have a current illness, if your immune system is compromised, if the process is lengthy, or if you have other specific health conditions.

While no one is ever excited to learn they need to have a tooth extraction, the truth is that this procedure is sometimes the best way to preserve the health of your smile. Tooth extractions at Dental Arts of Rockland can provide a variety of benefits, including:

  • Typically fast process that takes place in-office
  • Carried out using a topical anesthetic to desensitize the tooth and gums to allow you to remain as comfortable as possible
  • Deeper sedation options are available if you require a more extensive treatment or have severe dental anxiety
  • Creates room for dental implants to rebuild the form and abilities of the lost tooth
  • Can help prevent the spread of infection

Perfect combination of art and science. Dr Gellis is kind and very professional. He really knows his stuff and he makes an art of it. He’s quick and accurate. Combining that with the terrific staff makes a wonderful experience. So great that I recommended my spouse and he also had a great experience. We’re so glad we found Dr Gellis.

Dr. Gellis and his staff made me feel at ease and recommended a treatment plan that was tailored to my needs. I typically have some anxiety when going to the dentist , due to the sounds of the machinery. However, Dr. Gellis and his staff offered a laundry list of complimentary amenities such as a warm neck pillow, headphones, and warm hand wipe to put my anxieties at ease. They were even able to move up my appointment so that I could receive care sooner and did not need to prolong having my crown installed! Thank you so much for your thoughtful attention to detail and patient centered care approach! I'm already looking forward to my 6m cleaning!

Being a physician who was trained by international leaders in patient care, I expect any care that I receive personally to be of the highest standard, just as I would do. Dr. Gellis and his team are at the top of the pyramid, not only from a technical standpoint, but also in how they treat patients. This is the place to go for the best dentistry available.

Kind and friendly caring atmosphere. .I actually look forward to going to the dentist. But it’s even much more than that. I’ve had bad experiences in the past and because of that have neglected my teeth . They helped me through my anxiety and treated me as if I was someone special. And that’s just it . Every patient to them is special. And every person who works there from Dr Gellis ,Collen , Megan , Randy , whoever you deal with is caring and kind. I wish all medical practices cared the same way.
