Tooth Extractions Simplified

Tooth Extraction

Having a tooth pulled is not something most people anticipate with great relish. Whether tooth extractions needed because of serious tooth decay, severe trauma or impact, tooth crowding or a specific medical reason, the prospect of this procedure can be intimidating indeed. However, by taking the time to become educated about precisely what a tooth extractions entail, patients can gain a sense of calm about what lies ahead.

Prior to an extraction, an oral surgeon, affordable dentist, or other dental care professional at Advanced Dental Care of Orange City will take x-rays as well as a full dental and medical history in order to determine the best approach to follow. They will check the location of the problem tooth in relation to the adjacent teeth, the sinuses, and to nerves in the jawbone. Under certain circumstances, antibiotics may be prescribed in advance of the procedure.  Generally, the dentist will perform a tooth extraction only on a patient who has not had a cough or cold in the days preceding the procedure.

Tooth extraction procedures fall into two categories: simple extractions and surgical extractions. A simple tooth extraction is performed on a tooth that is visible. An affordable dentist in Orange City will first loosen the tooth and then remove it. A surgical tooth extraction involves teeth that are broken at the gum line or that have yet to fully grow in. In these cases, the dentist may have to remove bone and break the tooth. While the amount of sedation used in these tooth extraction procedures will depend on the complexity of the situation, the patient should not experience pain during the extraction.

Patients having a tooth extraction will receive dental care instructions following the procedure. Once they get home, they can manage pain with anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, and warm compresses—and by following a soft diet for the first few days. Extractions do involve the risk of complications such as inadvertent damage to neighboring teeth, jaw fractures, damage to the sinuses, numbness, and ongoing pain. If such issues arise, it is important that the patient contact an affordable dentist in Orange City right away.
