Reasons For Extractions

Patients require dental extractions for different reasons based on their medical history, but teeth crowding is the most common reason.
The development of all four wisdom teeth may cause overlapping of teeth which can cause chewing and biting problems that facilitate their removal.

Certain infections, such as decaying or damaged teeth, may require extraction. This prevents the spread of disease to blood vessels. Similarly, a patient with a high risk of developing a severe or chronic illness may have a tooth removed to limit this risk.

Periodontal gum disease reduces the gum's ability to hold teeth. Removing the teeth from damaged gums can protect the gums from further damage.

Types of Extractions

Simple dental extractions involve the use of dental tools to pull out the affected tooth. However, this procedure is only reliable if the tooth is visible and can be accessed easily.

In more complicated cases, our professionals prefer to use surgical extraction methods. These methods are preferable if the damaged tooth is hidden or inaccessible.

Recovery Period of Extraction

Recovery periods vary from a few days to a few weeks depending on the severity of the treatment. Patients can reduce recovery times by using an ice pack. This application reduces swelling in the treated area. Smoking can be harmful to the wound and should be avoided. Furthermore, it is preferable to eat a soft diet in the days immediately after the extraction. A regular diet can resume as the treated area heals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I Need a Replacement Tooth After an Extraction?
Ideally, replacing a missing tooth after an extraction is often recommended to prevent shifting of surrounding teeth, maintain proper bite alignment, and avoid bone loss in the jaw. Options for replacement include dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures.

Is Tooth Extraction Painful?
The tooth extraction procedure itself is typically not painful, as the area will be numbed with local anesthesia. You may feel some pressure and movement, but you should not feel pain. After the anesthesia wears off, some discomfort and soreness are normal. This can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers, prescribed medications, and following your dentist's aftercare instructions. If you experience severe pain or prolonged discomfort, contact your dentist.
