Tooth Extraction process
Tooth extraction is a procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. It is typically done when a tooth is severely decayed, damaged, or infected and cannot be repaired with a filling, crown, or other type of treatment. Tooth extraction may also be necessary if a tooth is causing crowding or if a patient is at risk of developing an infection after a tooth extraction procedure.
There are two main types of tooth extractions: simple extractions and surgical extractions. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, while surgical extractions are performed on teeth that are not visible, such as teeth that have not erupted or teeth that have been broken off at the gum line.
Tooth extraction is typically done by a dentist or oral surgeon in a dental office or clinic. It is a relatively quick procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. After the tooth is extracted, the area will be covered with a gauze pad to help stop any bleeding. The patient will need to follow the dentist’s instructions for post-extraction care, which may include taking medications to manage pain and prevent infection, avoiding certain foods and activities, and maintaining good oral hygiene.
