Why Would Tooth Extractions Be Needed?

The goal of any dentist is to keep your natural teeth healthy and looking great forever. Unfortunately, there are some circumstances where there is no other option but to remove a tooth. Some reasons why a tooth has to be extracted include:

  • Irreparable Damage: This is where the tooth has suffered either too much decay, a fracture near the gum line, or some other form of trauma that makes it impossible to repair and remain in the mouth.
  • Periodontal (Gum) Disease: Gum disease is very destructive for teeth. It can cause bone and gum loss around the teeth, making them unable to be supported in the mouth any longer. If too much tissue and bone loss have occurred from gum disease, it may have to be extracted.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: If there is overcrowding, some teeth may have to be extracted to make room to properly align and arrange the others.
  • Wisdom Teeth: This is one of the most common oral surgeries performed as wisdom teeth are known for growing improperly, causing pain, discomfort, infections, and other oral problems.

What to Expect During Tooth Extractions

The procedure begins by numbing the areas of the mouth that will be affected. In some cases, dental sedation may be needed to make sure the patient is comfortable.

There are two types of tooth extraction. One is a simple extraction. In this case, the tooth is visible and easily accessible; therefore, it is simple to remove. The other is a surgical extraction. This kind of oral surgery is performed on impacted teeth, fragile teeth, and teeth with curved roots. It is more complex and involved than a simple extraction.

After the procedure, the patient will receive aftercare instructions. Most patients report just minor discomfort from the extractions.

How to Promote Healing After Oral Surgery

After the extraction, the healing process begins with a blood clot where the root used to be. For 48 hours, it is important to refrain from smoking, spitting, and drinking through straws, or a condition known as dry socket could develop.
