TOOTH EXTRACTION

It sometimes becomes necessary to have a tooth extracted from your mouth, and there are a number of reasons why this might be the best course of action.

  • Even though permanent teeth are expected to last throughout your lifetime, some situations actually call for their removal.
  • One of the most common reasons that a tooth might need to be extracted is when it becomes severely damaged by decay.

However, that’s far from the only reason for a tooth extraction.

  • In some cases, your mouth can become overcrowded by your teeth, and extracting at least one of them will allow for the others to grow in more naturally.
  • Many times, a tooth will be extracted so that there will be enough room for your remaining teeth to be properly aligned through the use of orthodontics.
  • If you have a tooth that somehow becomes infected, that can cause even worse damage to the nerves and blood vessels in the area, and that may call for extraction.

Periodontal disease often damages your gums so badly that the gum and bone pull away from your teeth, leaving them very loose. In such cases, the best course of action is to extract these teeth, rather than have them fall out on their own.

The good news with any tooth extraction is that there are a number of dental procedures which can be used to replace missing teeth.

Consult with Dr. Maitri Patel about the best way to replace any teeth which need to be extracted from your mouth.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When is a tooth extraction necessary?

A: There are several situations that may call for a tooth extraction. One is that you have an overcrowded situation in your mouth, and another is when you have an impacted wisdom tooth. When a tooth has been severely damaged by decay, tooth extraction will probably be recommended, and broken teeth may also need to be taken out. If you have periodontal disease, several teeth may have become very loose and might need to be extracted.

Q: What is involved with a tooth extraction?

A: In a simple tooth extraction, the area of your mouth will first be numbed, and then Dr. Maitri Patel will remove the tooth with pliers. Surgical extractions such as those done on impacted wisdom teeth will generally require I.V. sedation so the patient does not feel the discomfort of the procedure.

Q: Do tooth extractions hurt?

A: In virtually all cases, the patient will either be completely sedated, or the affected area will be numbed by a local anesthetic. Either way, the patient will not feel any pain during the procedure.

Q: What must I do at home after a tooth extraction?

A: Dr. Patel will give you a specific set of instructions about what to do following your tooth extraction. It is important that you follow these instructions closely so that no complications develop.

Q: Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process?

A: Yes, there are several things you can do. You can take OTC pain relievers to manage any discomfort, and you can apply ice packs to reduce any swelling. You can also avoid eating foods that require a great deal of chewing, and you can limit your activities for about 48 hours following a tooth extraction.
