What are Extractions?

A dental extraction, also known as tooth extraction or tooth removal, is a dental procedure in which a dentist or oral surgeon removes a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. The extraction may involve removing a single tooth or multiple teeth, depending on the specific dental condition and the treatment plan.

Extractions (Tooth Removal)

There are two types of dental extractions:

  1. Simple Extraction: This type of extraction is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth and can be easily accessed by the dentist. A local anesthetic is usually administered to numb the area around the tooth, ensuring the patient does not feel pain during the procedure. The dentist then uses specialized instruments to loosen and gently remove the tooth from its socket.
  2. Surgical Extraction: Surgical extractions are more complex and are typically performed on teeth that are not easily accessible or have not fully erupted, such as impacted wisdom teeth or broken teeth below the gumline. In this case, the dentist or oral surgeon may need to make a small incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and may need to section the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.

Dental extractions may be necessary for various reasons, including:

  • Severe tooth decay or damage that cannot be repaired with dental treatments like fillings or crowns.
  • Advanced gum disease that has affected the supporting structures around the tooth.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain, swelling, or potential dental issues.
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment or the placement of dentures or dental implants.
  • Severely broken or fractured teeth.
  • Overcrowding of teeth, necessitating the removal of one or more teeth to create space for proper alignment.

After a dental extraction, the patient is provided with post-operative care instructions to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. The healing process may take a few days to a few weeks, depending on the complexity of the extraction and the individual’s oral health.

It’s essential to discuss the need for a dental extraction with your dentist, as they will assess your specific dental condition, provide treatment options, and guide you through the process to achieve the best outcome for your oral health.
