Severe tooth decay, trauma, chances of malalignment, the eruption of wisdom teeth, etc., are common reasons people undergo tooth extractions. Extraction is a quick outpatient procedure. However, extraction of broken or impacted teeth requires a more elaborated process.
In simple terms, tooth extraction is the removal of one or more teeth from their sockets. They are done under local, general, or intravenous anesthesia or sometimes in combination.
Before we remove your teeth, we take your dental and medical history and x-rays to find out the position, length, and shape of your teeth and surrounding structures. It helps to determine the type of extraction needed. We give you local anesthesia to numb the area locally for a simple extraction. For a surgical extraction, we administer intravenous anesthesia.
Extractions could be either simple or surgical. We determine the process required by physical examination and checking the x-ray.
It is the removal of the visible teeth in your mouth. In this process, we give local anesthesia to you, loosen your teeth, and remove it from the socket.
As the name says, it is a surgical process required for either impacted or broken teeth. We make a small cut into your gums and remove the tooth to perform a surgical extraction. After performing extraction, we put a piece of sterile gauze into your mouth, ask you to bite it, and let it stay for up to 30 to 45 minutes until bleeding stops.
You are required to follow these instructions for up to 24 hours after your extraction.
