Teeth Removal at Hollywood Smile Dental Clinic
If your tooth is broken or rotten and cannot be fixed with a filling or crown, your dentist may choose the final option of Teeth Removal.
When a tooth can’t be saved, tooth extraction may be the best alternative. During your consultation, your dentist will go over your alternatives with you. Please contact your dentist and schedule an appointment if you believe you may need a tooth pulled.
What is the purpose of tooth extraction?
There are a variety of reasons why you might require a tooth extracted. For instance, if you have:
Severe tooth decay
Gum disease (periodontal disease)
A cracked tooth that can’t be fixed
On your gums or around your teeth, you have an abscess (a collection of pus).
When your teeth don’t have enough space in your jaw, you have crowded teeth.
Wisdom teeth that have become impacted
During your dental surgery, your dentist will normally remove a tooth. However, if your extraction is more complicated, an oral surgeon may perform it in the hospital. The majority of the time, you can return home the same day.
At Hollywood Smile Dental clinic, we have well qualified and experienced doctors dealing with all dental issues. If you’re experiencing pain or think you might need a tooth removed, contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
What is the procedure for removing a tooth?
Depending on whether your tooth is visible or impacted, your extraction will be either simple or surgical.
You will be given a local anesthetic, which will numb the area around your tooth, allowing you to feel only pressure rather than pain during the procedure. The dentist then removes the tooth with forceps after loosening it with an elevator.
You will most likely be given local anesthesia as well as intravenous anesthesia, the latter of which will make you calm and relaxed. Depending on your medical condition, you may also require general anesthesia. You will be unconscious throughout the procedure if you have general anesthesia.
A small incision will be made into your gum by the general dentist or oral surgeon. Before your tooth can be extracted, they may need to remove bone surrounding it or cut it.
Tips for ensuring that the tooth extraction site heals properly
After a tooth extraction, don’t rinse your mouth for at least 24 hours. This may dislodge any blood clots that have formed, causing you to bleed again.
To keep the area clean, rinse gently four times a day with a salt water mouthwash (made with salt and hot, but not boiling water).
When you first have your tooth extracted, eat soft foods so you don’t have to chew as much.
If your gums bleed, bite down for at least 15 minutes on a clean pad of material, such as a clean handkerchief.
Don’t drink alcohol for at least 24 hours and don’t smoke for at least the rest of the day.
Brush your teeth, but brush away from the healing wound at first, gradually moving closer to it each day. Before brushing, soak your toothbrush in hot water to soften it.
Depending on which tooth was extracted and why, you may need stitches. You won’t need to have the stitches removed because they will dissolve on their own in a week to ten days.
To avoid food becoming trapped, brush these carefully for three to four days after your surgery. However, take care not to disturb any newly formed blood clots that have formed over your empty tooth socket.
