When do you need an extraction?
- If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted.
- A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it can’t be saved
Other reasons for extraction:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Orthodontic reasons such as crowding misaligned tooth
- Over retained deciduous tooth
What is important during an extraction?
Extraction is performed under local anesthesia. In case if a patient is nervous we do provide oral sedation or Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to help in relieving anxiety.
It is very important to preserve as much bone as possible around the tooth to allow replacement of the tooth in future with implant or dentures.
Sometimes it is important to place bone graft and membrane to allow bone regeneration in the extraction site which provides proper bone support for future replacement of the tooth.
What is important after an extraction?
Please follow post-op instructions.
