Expert in Dental ExtractionsBest Orthodontic treatments available in Williamstown Road Dental Surgery
Dental Extraction is the removal of Teeth from the jaw. Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. A very common reason involves a tooth that is too badly damaged from trauma, decay, gum disease or tooth infection.
Another reason for tooth extraction might be if the patient is undergoing Orthodontic treatment and needs certain teeth extracted due to crowding or as part of the Orthodontic treatment plan.
Depending on whether your tooth is visible or affected, your extraction will either be simple or invasive.
Simple Extraction: A local anesthetic will be administered to you, numbing the area around your teeth so that the process will only cause you to feel pressure rather than pain. After loosening the tooth with an elevator, the dentist will be able to extract it with forceps.
Surgical extraction: Most likely, you'll receive both intravenous and local anesthetic, the latter of which calms and relaxes you. Depending on your health, you might also have general anesthesia. If you receive general anesthesia, you won't wake up while the treatment is being done.
Your gum will be cut with a tiny incision by the dentist. Before they can extract your tooth, they might need to cut it, remove the bone surrounding it, or both.
