Tooth Extraction An Overview
Our dentists will perform a tooth extraction only when deemed necessary. If you require tooth extraction, our team at Cosmetic Dentistry Associates can execute all aspects of your care in our Pomona, NY dentist office.
You may need a tooth extraction for a variety of reasons. For instance, we may recommend a tooth extraction if one or more of the following conditions apply:
- A damaged tooth that is beyond repair
- Dental trauma
- Overcrowded teeth
- Extensive tooth decay
- Bone loss in the jaw
- A severe infection
Depending on your specific case, you may need a simple tooth extraction or a surgical tooth extraction. Simple tooth extraction is performed when the tooth is visible. Surgical tooth extraction is performed when a tooth has not fully erupted from the gums.
Our team can determine whether you need a surgical or simple tooth extraction after taking digital x-rays.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Pomona, NY
Wisdom teeth often develop in the late teens to the early twenties. Most patients must have at least one or more wisdom teeth removed. Since our jaws are not designed to support wisdom teeth, they often grow at an angle or partially erupt, which can cause issues for your existing teeth. Most dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth before they cause pain or discomfort.
Left untreated, fully or partially impacted wisdom teeth can cause inflammation, infection, and facial pain; this can also increase your risk of gum disease and tooth decay because partially or fully impacted wisdom teeth can be an easy target for plaque buildup. The wisdom teeth are in a hard-to-reach space behind your second molars, which makes them difficult to clean.
In many cases, patients don’t experience any signs of needing their wisdom teeth removed, which is why it is important to visit our Pomona dentist office regularly. During your visit, we can assess the condition of your wisdom teeth and make the best recommendations for your oral health.
Our team of dentists and an in-house periodontist perform all phases of the wisdom teeth removal and tooth extraction process in the comfort of our Pomona dentist office. We offer comprehensive dental care to patients of all ages, so you and your family can receive the necessary dental care in one convenient location.
