Teeth extraction is a dental procedure in which either your decayed or fractured tooth is removed from the sockets in your jawbone. Our dentist can incorporate different types of teeth extraction, and the choice will primarily be based on the condition, location, and dental health of the tooth. Here are some of the standard methods of tooth extraction that you need to know:
This is the simplest method of extracting your teeth and is primarily reserved for teeth visible above your gum line and those that are straightforward to extract. A dentist will use forceps to grasp such teeth and rock them back and forth to loosen them before removing them. We use a local anesthetic to ensure the area is numb enough so that you can experience as minimal pain as possible. Simple extraction has fewer side effects, and the recovery period is also relatively short.
This teeth extraction process is reserved for pretty complex teeth. We recommend this invasive procedure for teeth that are not easily accessible or when they are broken off at the gum line. During the removal process, we need to make an incision on the gum tissue to ensure adequate exposure to the teeth. In some instances, removing the bone around the teeth might be crucial.
A surgical extraction process is crucial for teeth that have not appropriately erupted, such as wisdom teeth. In most instances, the impacted teeth must be fragmented into many pieces to allow easy removal. It is paramount to note that the surgical extraction is more intensive and painful. Thus, we carry it out under general anesthesia.
In conclusion, simple tooth extractions are most recommended since they are straightforward to conduct and have minimal side effects compared to surgical extractions. But our dentist will review the nature of your teeth before deciding which method is most suitable for you. If you would like to discuss your options further, contact us today.
