Tooth Extraction for Braces & Invisalign
What is an extraction case?
A tooth extraction, otherwise known as a “pulled tooth,” is a routine dental procedure that involves carefully removing a tooth that is damaged, causing pain, or will lead to more serious problems without removal. In many cases, a tooth extraction may be needed in advance of orthodontic treatment in order to make space for proper alignment. Removing teeth for braces may be recommended if you have certain dental conditions that are difficult to correct without extraction.
At Diamond Braces, we know that having a tooth removed can be nerve-racking. That’s why our orthodontists have undergone years of training and have perfected their ability to safely remove teeth as painlessly as possible. Our orthodontists are known for their bedside manner and ability to make patients feel completely comfortable during any and all dental work.

How is an extraction case diagnosed?
If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms or concerns, or if you need wisdom teeth removal, visit one of our conveniently located offices throughout the New York Metropolitan area. Our experienced orthodontists can examine you and explain your treatment options in order to move forward and begin correcting the dental issue. It is common that patients avoid going to the dentist or orthodontist due to a busy schedule, but it is important to make your dental health a priority, especially when a tooth may need to be pulled. In some cases, putting off treatment can actually result in a tooth becoming more damaged over time.
