Understanding Teeth Extraction

What Is Teeth Extraction?

Teeth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from the dental alveolus in the alveolar bone. This procedure is typically required when a tooth cannot be saved by other dental treatments.

Reasons for Teeth Extraction

Common reasons for tooth extraction include severe tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth infection, and orthodontic correction requirements.

The Teeth Extraction Process

Pre-Extraction Considerations

Before an extraction, a detailed dental examination is conducted, including X-rays to understand the best approach to remove the tooth while preserving surrounding tissues.

Step-by-Step Guide to the Extraction Procedure

Our dentists use precise techniques to ensure the tooth is removed with minimal impact on surrounding tissues. This section would detail each step from the initial incision to the final suture, if applicable.

Aftercare and Recovery

Immediate Post-Extraction Care

Immediately after an extraction, it's crucial to follow specific care instructions to ensure proper healing. This includes managing bleeding, avoiding certain foods, and maintaining oral hygiene in a modified way to avoid disturbing the extraction site.

Long-term Care After Extraction

Long-term care involves regular check-ups to ensure proper healing and the implementation of dental prosthetics if necessary, such as implants or bridges, to restore functionality.
