Tooth Extraction Surgery
Tooth extraction surgery is performed by a dentist under anesthesia – the tooth is painlessly extracted from the alveolar canal being shaken by special forceps.
Difficulties may occur when extracting wisdom teeth, as they may be located deep in the jawbone. When extracting severely damaged teeth located deep in the gum, in these cases they use additional dental root elevators and other special dental tools.
Tooth Extraction Contraindications
Contraindications for tooth extraction are: acute respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases in acute form, active mental illness, stomatitis.
The presence of these diseases does not mean that the teeth should not be pulled out; these diseases must be cured or enter into a phase of remission (quiescence) before extracting your teeth.
After Tooth Extraction
It is proved that after tooth extraction is necessary to refrain from eating and drinking for 2-3 hours, smoking, it is strictly forbidden to rinse the mouth, as all this may prevent from healing the tooth socket.
Dentists also do not recommend touching the wound after tooth extraction.
Tooth extraction may lead to possible soreness and swelling at the site of the tooth being removed. If the condition persists, consult your dentist for examination.
The possibility of salvation or inevitability of tooth extraction can be discussed with your dentist after all the necessary examinations. After examinations the dentist returns with his verdict.
After tooth extraction it is necessary to make the restoration of missing tooth row, or it can cause mobility of teeth of the opposite jaw to place the extracted tooth and the inclination of other teeth, which in turn can lead to distortion of the bite and defects of chewing.
Avoid these problems with the help of dental prosthetics (dentures, implant dentures) or dental implants instead of tooth removal.
