Understanding Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. While our primary goal is always to save natural teeth, certain conditions may necessitate extraction to preserve or enhance overall oral health. 

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

  • Severe Decay or Infection: When a tooth is extensively decayed or infected beyond repair, extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Removal of wisdom teeth is often required if they are impacted, misaligned or causing pain and crowding.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: Extractions may be performed to create space for the remaining teeth to be properly aligned.
  • Risk of Infection: In some cases, teeth may be extracted as a preventative measure if there’s a high risk of infection due to medical conditions.

The Extraction Process

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Includes examination and X-rays to assess the condition of the tooth and surrounding bone.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure a painless procedure.
  • Post-Extraction Care: Detailed aftercare instructions are provided to promote healing and prevent complications.
