What is Post Removal?
There are some cases when a post that was formerly placed in the mouth as a permanent fixture needs to be removed. This is an oral procedure called post removal. These posts are often used in root canals and other treatments but may become infected, cause pain, or become damaged later in life. At Concerned Dental Care, our team of dental professionals offers post removal surgery to Manhattan, Westchester, and New York City, NY individuals. For more information on this procedure and the other dental treatments we offer, contact your nearest New York area location.
Who Should Get Post Removal?
If you have previously received a dental post and are now facing issues such as infection, pain, damage, or something else, it may be a sign that your original post needs to be removed. This can happen at times, particularly as the post ages. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms at or around the location of your post, give one of our New York offices a call so we can help restore your oral health.

What Can I Expect From Post Removal?
Post removal is not often easy, as they're placed to be a permanent fixture in the mouth. The difficulty level of post removal will depend on the type of post, the kind of cement used when placing the post, the space between the roots of the teeth, and the accessibility of the post. Our oral surgeons, however, use clinically-proven techniques to offer our patients safe and efficient post removal. We use state-of-the-art materials to minimize downtime. This procedure is often performed using general anesthesia to provide you with maximum comfort. Because general anesthesia is used, you should have a friend or family member available to take you home.
What Happens After Post Removal?
After post removal, your mouth will need time to heal. You will likely experience some discomfort, but this shouldn't be anything an over-the-counter pain medication can't help with. We may use a temporary filling to seal the tooth roots, so you will need to come back into the office after your healing process to receive a restorative appliance. This is an important aspect in keeping the area clean and free from damage and infection in the future.
