Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your body’s total wellness depends on your dental health. We work hard to maintain your teeth and gums in good condition. Our mission is to give you excellent treatment at a fair price. As part of the full tooth replacement alternatives, our locations provide extractions. If our dentists determine that extracting your tooth is the best course of action for you, they will do so. To assist you in making the optimal choice, a variety of factors are considered, such as your age, the condition of the tooth in issue, and prior restoration treatment.
WHY DOES A TOOTH NEED TO BE EXTRACTED?
The pain and suffering might be made worse by the presence of a tooth that has been worn down by decay, which can disseminate infection to neighbouring healthy tissue. Your oral health shouldn’t be ruined by a bad tooth. With the help of our tooth extractions, pain is effectively treated. This important procedure prevents the infection from spreading and also reduces discomfort.
The Extraction Process
The tooth, jaw bone, and gums close to the extraction site will all be numbed by the physician using a local anesthetic. During the extraction process, you will experience a lot of pressure. This is a result of the practice of firmly shaking the tooth to make room for removal by enlarging the socket.
Because the anesthetic has numbed the nerves and prevented pain transmission, you feel the pressure without experiencing any pain, but the nerves that transmit pressure remain unaffected.
Immediately let us know if you feel any discomfort throughout the extraction.
Some teeth need to be divided. This is a fairly typical procedure when a tooth is so securely entrenched in its socket or the root is so bent that the socket cannot expand enough to remove it. The tooth is simply divided into parts, each of which is removed separately by our dentist.
After Tooth Extraction
After a tooth extraction, a blood clot must form in order to halt the bleeding and start the healing process. After your appointment, chew on a piece of gauze for 30 to 45 minutes. Put another gauze pad over the area and continue to bite hard for another 30 minutes if the bleeding or oozing persists. To halt the blood flow, you might have to do this several times.
After the tooth is extracted, you can experience some pain and swelling. Swelling can be reduced by using an ice pack, an unopened bag of frozen peas, or a bag of frozen corn to the afflicted region. Use painkillers precisely as recommended. The edoema usually goes away after 48 hours.
Use painkillers precisely as recommended. Please get in touch with our office if the drug doesn’t seem to be functioning as expected. Even after the infection’s initial warning signs and symptoms have passed, if antibiotics have been prescribed, keep taking them for the time period stated. Drink lots of water the day of the extraction and eat nutritious, soft meals. As soon as you feel comfortable again, you can start eating normally again. You should resume your regular dental regimen after 24 hours. It’s advised to brush and floss your teeth at least once a day. This will help you recover more quickly and maintain your tongue healthy.
