There’s nothing like a healthy, natural smile. People tend to remember a full, confident grin. But sometimes, dental trauma, disease, or other problems cause severe damage or decay. Tooth extraction or tooth removal is often the most effective way to safeguard your oral health when the damage is beyond repair.
Does the idea of a tooth extraction leave you feeling queasy? That’s okay. Nobody likes the idea of having a tooth removed, even if the tooth is damaged or decayed. Our experienced oral surgeons at The Dental Roots focus on making the entire process as stress-free and painless.
When is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
A tooth extraction may be necessary for the following reasons:
- 1. The tooth has sustained severe damage that is irreparable
Once tooth decay reaches the pulp, the bacteria from the tooth decay can cause damage to the pulp and result in an infection. In some cases, a root canal procedure may be necessary; however, if the decay is too severe, then tooth extraction will be necessary to prevent the infection from spreading any further.
- 2. The patient has periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is an infection within the gums, periodontal ligaments, alveolar bone, and other foundational structures of the teeth. It is important that periodontal disease is quickly addressed, as it can become very severe and result in more oral health problems. Periodontal disease may result in the loosening of a tooth, and an extraction may be necessary.
- 3. Avoiding an impacted tooth
An impacted tooth occurs when the tooth is blocked from erupting, or the gums prevent the tooth from coming out. This is usually the case when wisdom teeth are involved. This may be necessary to prevent other teeth from becoming damaged. An extraction can lower the risk of infection or overcrowding.
- 4. Eliminate overcrowding
One or more teeth may need to be extracted in order to avoid overcrowding of the teeth. This helps with the overall alignment of your teeth.
If you have been involved in an accident, such as a car accident, an extraction may be necessary if preservation of the tooth is not possible.
What is the Procedure for a Painless Tooth Extraction?
Simple extraction: A simple extraction involves local anaesthesia, which entails numbing the area around your tooth. With local anaesthesia, you will only feel pressure, but not any pain during the procedure. Once the anaesthesia is applied, our oral surgeon will use an instrument called an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps to remove it.
The cost of tooth extraction or removal depends on the complexity of the case and thus, varies from patient to patient.
