Dental extractions can be done to create an area for teeth that need to be replaced, especially in people who wear braces. Apart from this, although it is rare, some teeth may pose a risk to oral health in people who are undergoing chemotherapy or who will have an organ transplant. Therefore, these teeth also need to be extracted.
Dental extraction should be done by specialists in the field, such as a dentist or oral surgeons. Although local anesthesia is usually sufficient during these procedures, general and intravenous anesthesia can be used in some cases. Although dental extraction is an outpatient and fairly easy procedure, sometimes it can be a bit more complicated to extract teeth that are broken, lodged in the palate, or interacting with other teeth.
Before Dental Extraction
Before starting the dental extraction procedure, an X-ray of the tooth is taken and the condition of the tooth is clearly observed. You should inform your dentist about the medications, supplements, and vitamins you take before tooth extraction. In addition, if you have heart disease, diabetes, liver diseases, thyroid, kidney diseases, hypertension, immune system disorders, and similar diseases, you should inform the specialist who will perform the tooth extraction procedure.
If your tooth extraction procedure needs to last longer than it should, if you have an infection in your body and have a weak immune system, our dentist can give you antibiotic treatment days before the tooth extraction procedure.
In order for your treatment to be smooth and complete, you should not smoke before the tooth extraction procedure. If you have any illnesses such as colds, nausea, and vomiting, be sure to inform your dentist about these situations.
Simple Dental Extraction
In simple tooth extraction procedures, only the tooth and its surroundings are anesthetized with local anesthesia. In this way, although you do not feel any pain during the procedure, you will feel the pressure on your teeth. The dentist then uses an elevator to loosen the tooth and then uses devices called forceps to remove the tooth. After the procedure, which will take 10 to 15 minutes, your numbness will completely disappear within 2 hours and you can return to your daily life.
Surgical Dental Extraction
In surgical dental extraction procedures, both local anesthesia and intravenous anesthesia are applied to the patients. Intravenous anesthesia helps the patient calm and relax. Although it is not preferred very often, general anesthesia can also be applied to patients in some medical conditions. The gum is then cut with a small incision and the surrounding bone is removed before the tooth is removed. In some cases, the tooth may also need to be cut.
A dental extraction is not among the primary treatment methods of dentists, especially in advanced ages. Even if the tooth is decayed, in most cases, the dentist will try different treatment methods such as filling and root canal treatment to keep these teeth healthy. If your dentist says that your tooth needs to be extracted, complications that may arise with tooth extraction have become a better possibility than other ailments.
