You Need A Tooth Extraction In the Following Conditions
The following are the primary reasons when extraction of the tooth is the only option:-
Tooth Extraction FAQ
Local anesthesia is generally administered for simple extractions while sedation or general anesthesia is used for surgical extractions, which makes the procedure completely painless. For post-operative swelling and pain, your dentist will prescribe analgesics and even antibiotics in some cases to prevent discomfort and reduce the chances of infection.
You will be asked to lie down on the dental chair, and then your dentist will administer the anesthesia. Once the anesthesia is active, your dentist will detach the gums from your tooth and rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it up. The tooth is then pulled out using a specific apparatus for one particular tooth. Sometimes if the hold of the tooth is firm in the bone, such as in back teeth, your dentist will need to use a dental drill to remove some part of the bone and gums to facilitate extraction. Once the tooth is pulled out, your wound may be sewed up, and cotton gauze is placed on the site on which you will be asked to bite down. You may have to wait in the dental office for a while for your dentist to make sure that you are not experiencing any complications.
You will have to follow the instructions of your dentist to the word. Some of the guidelines will include the following:-
– Do not spit the gauze piece out; always pick it up from your mouth and throw.
– You cannot eat or drink immediately after extraction
– Apply a cold compress to the surgical site
– 24 hrs after extraction, start warm saline rinses
– Do not brush at the site of extraction for up to 24hrs
– Eat soft foods for a few days after removal
– Don’t use a straw for drinking
– Take your medications on time
– Avoid heavy work for the first 24hrs
You will need to have your tests done before undergoing extractions to rule out bleeding disorders. Also, if you are on medication of any form, inform your dentist beforehand. Never hide the facts from your dentist.
Simple extractions will cost less than back tooth or molar tooth extractions. Also, the type of anesthesia used will influence the cost factor.
