When is tooth extraction recommended?
Tooth extraction involves careful removal of the tooth from its socket along with the root. There are various reasons why tooth extraction may be recommended. The procedure is performed only if it is beneficial to the oral health of the patient. Following are some of the causes for tooth extraction.
How is tooth extracted?
Tooth extraction is performed to improve the functionality of oral cavity. The procedure is recommended after thorough examination of condition of the tooth. If the tooth is decayed/damaged, our dentist checks if the tooth can be restored by using fillings, inlays, onlays or crowns. If the tooth has been severely damaged, then it may have to be extracted.
The tooth is firstly numbed using local anesthesia. In a simple extraction procedure, an elevator and forceps are used to remove the tooth. The socket is filled using bone restoration material. A surgery may be necessary if the tooth is in a complicated position or is damaged at the gum-line. In such cases an incision is made in the gums and some portion of bone may be removed to extract tooth. The bone is restored of the extraction procedure and the gums are sutured back. Our dentist provides tips for quick recovery.
