It is everyone’s dream for permanent teeth to last a lifetime. However, there are situations that make tooth extraction unavoidable. Irreparably damaged teeth are the source of body-wide infection and the cause of bad breath odor.
When to extract a tooth?
Usually a tooth is removed when it cannot be treated, i.e. it is no longer possible to properly restore the surviving tissues of Your tooth by filling or prosthetics.
Reasons for tooth extraction:
- Severe injury due to caries or trauma.
- Purulent processes around the root of the tooth.
- Irregular tooth position.
- Tooth or root fracture, decay.
- Disrupted eruption of the tooth.
- The need for orthodontic treatment.
- If the inflammation reaches the pulp in the tooth center, containing nerves and blood vessels, oral bacteria can enter the pulp, causing inflammation to develop in the root canals. Often this can be cured by cleaning and sealing the root canals, but if the infection is so severe that endodontic treatment does not help, tooth extraction may be needed to stop the spread.
- Periodontal disease. Periodontitis is an inflammation of the soft and hard tissues surrounding the tooth. An infection can severely damage the gums and jaw bone, thus dissolving it. As a result, the teeth start to falter and are lost or removed.
- Various wisdom teeth problems.
- Deciduous tooth that has not fallen out in time and therefore prevents the permanent tooth from sprouting.
How to proceed after tooth extraction:
- On the recommendation of Your doctor, take oral painkillers as needed.
- Put ice on Your cheek for 10 minutes every half hour.
- Avoid rinsing Your mouth vigorously with water or other liquids for the first 24 hours.
- Brush Your teeth gently.
- Eat soft, easily digestible food for the first few days after the procedure.
- Avoid active physical activity for 2-3 days.
Reasons to see a doctor urgently:
- Signs of infection, including fever, chills.
- Onset of heavy bleeding from the wound.
Important to know
The implant can be placed immediately after removal of the tooth (or teeth). This is called immediate implant placement.
Is tooth extraction a painful procedure? How long does it take?
Tooth extraction is not painful because painkillers are used during the procedure.
The procedure lasts 10-20 minutes, less often – up to an hour.
How to prepare for a tooth extraction procedure?
No special preparation is required for the tooth removal procedure. If You are taking medicines for systemic diseases, You must tell Your doctor in advance.
Is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?
If wisdom teeth are healthy and do not cause discomfort, they should not be removed. The best answer to the question of whether wisdom teeth need to be removed can be given by a dentist after assessing their clinical condition and dental X-ray.
