Tooth Extraction

Row of wooden tooth shapes, one of which is being pulled out of the row by dental pliersA tooth extraction procedure is performed by an oral surgeon and is done to preserve or improve the dental health of a patient. Tooth extraction can be performed for several reasons. If you want to have braces you can undergo an orthodontic procedure to remove overcrowded teeth. Tooth extraction can also be done to create space especially for wisdom teeth, or if they are infected. Tooth decay that cannot be repaired with a filling or crown can lead to tooth extraction. It is necessary to perform tooth extractions among chemotherapy patients if their teeth are infected due to radiation. If you need to undergo a tooth extraction, Advanced Center for Oral Surgery, Facial Surgery and Dental Implants can help.

Tooth Extraction Procedure

After numbing the region around the extraction site using local anesthesia, the oral surgeon will perform the extraction process. Also possible are anti-anxiety medications or intravenous sedatives as part of the treatment plan. Before the extraction procedure, if the tooth is damaged it can be broken into pieces for easy extraction.

Simple Tooth Extraction Procedure

Simple tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth that may be seen in the mouth and is not painful. This might entail extracting a severely damaged or decaying tooth, as well as removing teeth before placing braces. A local anesthetic will be administered to you if you are having a routine tooth extraction. Aside from that, some dental practitioners provide anti-anxiety medication or utilize conscious sedation for basic dental procedures such as tooth extraction. The majority of the time, over-the-counter pain medications are sufficient for pain management following these operations.

Surgical Tooth Extraction Procedure

Operation by an oral surgeon for the removal of teeth that are not visible in the mouth due to their failure to develop or because they have broken off is known as a surgical tooth extraction. Individuals with certain medical problems may require general anesthesia when having their teeth pulled, which may necessitate surgical intervention. Additionally, you may be prescribed pain medication to be used immediately following a surgical tooth extraction.

After Tooth Extraction

Make sure to follow the dental professional's oral hygiene advice after any sort of tooth extraction, which may include several recommendations. Consume mostly liquids until any anesthetic has worn off, and then restrict your diet to soft foods for the first several days following the procedure. On the first day following a tooth extraction, avoid brushing the teeth immediately next to the extraction site, but brush the rest of your teeth. Resume your normal dental hygiene routine two days after tooth extraction has been completed. Oral hygiene is important to achieve great results after the extraction procedure.
