Teeth Extractions Service
REASONS FOR EXTRACTING YOUR TEETH
Although permanent teeth were meant to last for the lifetime, there are a number of reasons because of which tooth extraction may be needed.
A very common reason is that the tooth is too badly damaged, from trauma or decay, or to be repaired.
Other reasons include :
A crowded mouth- Sometimes dentists extracts the teeth to prepare the mouth for orthodontia. Orthodontia is done to properly align the teeth, which may not be possible if your teeth are too big for the mouth. Likewise, if a tooth cannot break through the gum because there is no room in the mouth for it, we may recommend extraction of it.
Infection- If tooth decay or damage extends to a pulp -- the center of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels -- bacteria in the mouth can enter in the pulp, leading to infection. Often this can be corrected with root canal therapy, but if the infection is so severe that antibiotics or RCT can’t cure it, extraction may be needed to prevent the spread of infection.
Risk of infection- If your immune system is compromised (for example, if you are receiving chemotherapy or are having an organ transplant), even the risk of infection in a particular tooth might be the reason enough to extract your tooth.
Periodontal Gum Disease. If periodontal disease-- an infection of the tissues and bones that surrounds the supporting teeth -- can cause loosening of the teeth, it may be necessary to the pullout or extract the tooth or teeth.
PROCEDURE OF THE TOOTH EXTRACTION
Dentists and oral surgeons (dentists with the special training to perform the surgery) perform the tooth extractions. Before extracting the tooth, we will give you an injection of anesthesia to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. This will prevent the pain throughout your body and will make you sleep through the procedure.
Once the tooth has been extracted, a blood clot usually forms in your jaw socket. The dentist will pack a gauze pad to stop the bleeding. Sometimes the Orthodontist will place a few stitches to close your gum edges over the extraction site.
Sometimes, the blood clot in the socket breaks and it is loose, exposing the bone in the socket. This is a painful condition called as dry socket. If this will happen, we will likely place a sedative dressing over the socket for a few days to protect it as a new clot form.
