Tooth Extraction

tooth extraction

Tooth extraction – Although permanent teeth can last a lifetime, teeth that have become damaged or decayed may need to be removed or extracted.

Tooth extraction

1. What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone.

Tooth extraction 1
The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. There are additional reasons for tooth extraction:

– Reduced cost compared to other treatments.

– Severe tooth decay or infection (acute or chronic alveolar abscess). Despite the reduction in worldwide prevalence of dental caries, it is still the most common reason for extraction of (non-third molar) teeth with up to two thirds of extractions.

– Supernumerary teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in.

– Severe gum disease which may affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of teeth.

– In preparation for orthodontic treatment (braces).

– Teeth in the fracture line.

– Teeth which cannot be restored endodontically.

– Fractured teeth.

– Supernumerary, supplementary or malformed teeth.

– Prosthetics; teeth detrimental to the fit or appearance of dentures.

– Treatment of symptomatic impacted wisdom teeth, whose impaction is causing pathosis that will lead to yet more (infection, inflammation, bone resorption).

– Preventive removal of asymptomatic impacted wisdom teeth.

2. How tt’s done?

There are two types of extractions:

– A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that can be seen in the mouth. General dentists commonly do simple extractions. In a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. Then the dentist uses an instrument called a forceps to remove the tooth.

– A surgical extraction is a more complex procedure. It is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not come into the mouth yet. Surgical extractions commonly are done by oral surgeons. However, they are also done by general dentists. The doctor makes a small incision (cut) into your gum. Sometimes it’s necessary to remove some of the bone around the tooth or to cut the tooth in half in order to extract it.

Most simple extractions can be done using just an injection (a local anesthetic). You may or may not receive drugs to help you relax. For a surgical extraction, you will receive a local anesthetic, and you may also have anesthesia through a vein (intravenous). Some people may need general anesthesia. They include patients with specific medical or behavioral conditions and young children.

3. Care after extraction

Keep clean and prevent from infection after this procedure which play extremely important role. The dentist will required you to bite slightly on the dried and pasteurized medical cotton and keep it in your mouth around 30 to 45 minutes to reduce the blooding and also help to proceed coagulation. Within next 24 hours, you should not smoke, heavily wash your mouth or brush your tooth where has just been extracted one.

Tooth extraction 4
You may feel painful and discomfort after this process. In some cases, the dentist will advise you use the analgesic or give the prescription contained it to you. You should apply an ice-bag for your face after once 15 minutes, drink with straw, avoid the pressure for alveolus where has just been removed tooth and hot drink also. Next day, you can wash your mouth with warm water (but must not swallow). Normally, the discomfort feelings will reduce gradually after 3 days to 2 weeks. If you also feel swell, heavy pain, bleeding or temperature, please inform your dentist immediately.
