East Haven extractions
Getting a tooth extracted doesn’t have to provoke anxiety or fear. At the office of Carl P. Prota, DMD, it is a virtually painless experience. You may need to have a tooth removed due to severe decay, an infected tooth that cannot be saved, a failed root canal, or in the case of wisdom teeth, because they have grown in crooked, only partially, or have become impacted.
The process of our East Haven extractions is similar whether it is a wisdom tooth or any other tooth. The first thing to take into account is the positioning of the tooth. Some are easier to access than others. To begin with, local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your optimal comfort. You will feel the pressure that is being exerted to loosen the tooth and remove it, but you should not feel pain. The gums typically must be cut so that the root of the tooth can be reached. If any bone tissue is blocking the tooth, a common occurrence with wisdom teeth, that bone is removed. Some bone may also be connected to the tooth, and if so that will be detached to make for a smooth process. In the case of wisdom teeth especially, there are nerves and bone that have to be navigated around. It is vital that they are not damaged, and this is why you should rely on an experienced and skilled practitioner like Dr. Prota. Some teeth must be taken out in pieces. Stitches are applied afterward, and gauze used to stem any residual bleeding. If the tooth was not a wisdom tooth, you can begin the process of getting a replacement, such as a dental implant. You may even be able to have it started as part of the same procedure that your natural tooth is taken out.

East Haven dental implants
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Carl P. Prota, DMD, our dentist can provide you with East Haven dental implants as soon as he is sure that you are an excellent candidate for the procedure.
When you come to our dental practice to get East Haven dental implants, you will be seen by our top-notch implant dentist, Dr. Carl Prota. Dental implants are very popular with our patients because they look, feel, and function just like other teeth. However, in order for the dental implant procedure to be successful it is important that the patient is a good candidate for the procedure. This is why our dentist will make sure that patients are excellent candidates for the procedure before work begins on dental implants. In order for the dental implant procedure to be successful, it is important that the patients jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant surgery and to successfully heal from the procedure. It is also important that the jawbone is thick enough to allow the dental implant root to successfully fuse to it. Our dentist will also ask you questions about your overall medical health to make sure that there is no reason why you will not be able to completely heal from the surgery. Once it is found that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, our dentist will be able to proceed with the dental implant process. There is then a waiting period of several months during which time all healing will take place. Finally, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant, and your dental implant will be complete.
