Farber Center is dedicated to saving teeth and as a result, offers a range of state-of-the-art periodontal treatments and procedures. But in situations where tooth extraction is required, our dentists are gentle and use appropriate anesthesia to make the oral surgery procedure as quick and painless as possible. When an individual tooth or group of teeth are lost, we can replace them with dental implants, bridges or dentures to preserve your smile and allow you to eat the foods you enjoy.
Dental implants often are recommended because they have many advantages over other methods and depending on the tissue left after your extraction heals, socket grafting may be needed. In this procedure, gum and bone are restored to the socket until the area’s aesthetic appearance is restored. This can be especially important if a visible front tooth has been extracted. Once a socket is grafted and an implant placed, the replacement tooth and surrounding gum have an entirely natural and more attractive appearance.
Holistic dentists place an emphasis on the connection of good oral health to whole body health — and also may pay closer attention to emotional factors such as self-esteem and self-confidence. Socket grafting adds cost to tooth extraction and dental implant procedures, but it can make a substantial contribution to greater self-confidence once treatment is complete and everything healed. Among periodontists in Long Island, Farber Center is a leader in advanced, thorough techniques, thereby offering patients the most complete range of choices possible.
