Tooth extraction is performed for a number of reasons. These include cracked teeth, gum disease or failed root canal treatment. Extraction is not as glamorous as some cosmetic procedures, but it is routinely performed efficiently and safely.
At Smart Smile Dental, tooth extraction is considered the last option for a tooth that has been damaged beyond repair.
Most Common Situations Requiring Tooth Extraction
- Severely cracked or damaged tooth
- Severe decay or infection
- Risk of infection because of other health concerns
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Financial considerations
Tooth Extraction Procedure
During your appointment, the tooth is examined by your dentist who will explain the reasons it should be extracted. An x-ray is taken to help determine the best way to remove the tooth as well as to see is there if an abscess is present in the area.
If there is an abscess, your dentist will then provide a course of antibiotics before performing the extraction procedure. Your dentist will also provide local anaesthesia, so that the actual tooth removal will be painless and there will be reduced discomfort following the procedure.
After the extraction, your dental team will give you a list of do’s and don’ts. These instructions must be carefully followed to ensure that you will not experience complications. Following this post-procedure list will also ensure that your tooth socket heals as quickly as possible and you can recover faster.
