Tooth Extraction

Row of wooden tooth shapes, one of which is being pulled out of the row by dental pliers. An extraction is the removal of teeth, generally due to illness, fracture, or overcrowding. Adult dental extractions are occasionally essential. The technique is currently more widespread than ever before and is regarded as superior to conventional therapeutic procedures. Tooth deterioration, damage, or significant injuries are all reasons why you could require dental extraction. The dentist will pull the tooth to avoid causing harm to the surrounding teeth or gums. Dentists recommend tooth removal as safe and practical since gums have a spontaneous healing quality. Nevertheless, not all tooth extractions are the consequence of deterioration or neglected diseases. It is common for individuals to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid overcrowding or pain if the wisdom tooth does not emerge correctly. If you are a candidate for extractions, our skilled team at Hidden Springs Family Dentistry are ready to help you.

Types of Extractions

There are two types of dental extractions, including surgical and simple extractions. A simple dental extraction is one where the teeth are extracted using dental instruments. It is utilized for teeth that are easy to remove. Dentists use local anesthesia throughout the operation. On the other hand, a surgical extraction is conducted when the injured tooth is affected and inaccessible. Incisions in the connective tissue must be made in order to extract the tooth. We only prescribe dental extraction processes at our dental locations when all other options have been exhausted; this is because we all want our patients to maintain their teeth to protect their smiles. When you require an extraction, we will provide you with the assistance and care you need to recuperate swiftly and with as minor inconvenience as possible.

Why Do We Need Dental Extractions?

As we get older, the likelihood of having crowded teeth increases. If you have all four wisdom teeth, your mouth may get overcrowded, and the other teeth may begin to overlap. It can lead to eating issues, as well as a crooked smile. An extraction prepares the mouth for orthodontia or tooth alignment.

Cracked or decayed teeth can lead to infection by extending to the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. Microorganisms can accumulate, producing an ailment that can spread to the gums and potentially lead to severe illnesses. To avoid worsening symptoms, it is frequently advisable to remove the affected tooth.

Who is a Candidate for Extractions?

In order to have a tooth extracted you ought to be in good health. If you have an infection somewhere in your tooth, you must take medication before the procedure to minimize the risk of infection from spreading and remove it from your mouth. You would be a suitable candidate if you know all of your alternatives and believe that extraction is perhaps the most viable solution. However, if you are a candidate for extractions and are unsure of how and where to seek help, we will examine patients' appropriateness for corrective extraction choices.
