When Is A Dental Extraction Necessary?

Dental extraction relates to the process of removing a tooth from its socket, and there are several reasons why this may be necessary.

  • Any teeth in the field of radiation should be removed for those receiving radiation to the head or neck.
  • Removing some teeth to create room for those being moved into place is required for anyone getting braces.

What Happens During A Dental Extraction?

Surgical and simple tooth extractions are the two principal types of removal. The latter entails a simple procedure to remove a tooth that is visible in the mouth. A dentist will use an elevator to loosen the affected tooth, and forceps are used to remove the tooth from the socket.

A surgical extraction is complicated and is commonly done by oral surgeons if your tooth has not come in yet or is broken at the gum line. The process entails making a small incision in your gum or cutting the tooth in half and removing the bone around it where necessary, to get it off.

When Is A Dental Extraction Needed?

Dental extraction is the best option if you have extensive decay or when repairs with a filling or a crown are in futility. Also, a periodontal disease may leave you with teeth that are not supported by enough bone, and such need to be removed as well. Once that is done, using a gum-protecting toothpaste is recommended. Crowding of teeth, failure to respond to root canal treatment, and trauma, are the other reasons that may necessitate the removal of teeth. In the case of crowding, an orthodontist may recommend extraction before the start of orthodontic treatment. Awkward positioning of wisdom teeth as they grow demands removal as well.
