EXTRACTION OF TOOTH

EXTRACTION OF TOOTH

Extraction is the complete removal of tooth which is within the gums and bone. Extraction is needed if the tooth is fractured in a way that it can“t be treated, during correction of alignment of teeth (orthodontic treatment) if the teeth are crowded, wisdom teeth extractions, teeth which are unable to erupt into mouth cavity, if infection spread from decayed tooth to surrounding gums and bone, during radiotherapy or chemotherapy in mouth cancer patients. Patient should inform the dentist regarding his/her medical history and drug intake, any allergic issues so that dentist will take necessary precautions during extraction.

Tooth Extractions Tooth Removal

Let’s learn in detail about the reasons that may warrant for tooth extraction:

Severe tooth decay: When a tooth is extensively decayed and cannot be restored with a filling or a crown, our dentists may recommend extraction to prevent the spread of infection to other teeth.

Periodontal disease: Advanced gum disease can cause teeth to become loose and unstable. In such cases, extraction may be necessary to preserve overall oral health.

Impacted wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often become impacted (unable to fully emerge through the gum line) due to lack of space in the jaw. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth, necessitating extraction.

Orthodontic reasons: Sometimes, teeth may need to be extracted to create space for orthodontic treatment, such as braces. This allows the remaining teeth to be properly aligned.

Aftercare 

Following the extraction, it’s important to follow our dentist’s instructions to avoid any complications. This typically includes biting on gauze pads to control bleeding, taking prescribed pain medications or over-the-counter pain relievers, applying ice packs to reduce swelling, and avoiding certain activities, such as drinking through a straw or smoking, which can dislodge the blood clot and delay healing.

It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene during the healing process by gently brushing the teeth and avoiding the extraction site.
