Extractions

There are several reasons the removal of a tooth or teeth is necessary. For example, a broken tooth, the removal of wisdom teeth, or the correction of misalignment teeth.

There are several reasons the removal of a tooth or teeth may be necessary. For example, a broken tooth, the removal of wisdom teeth, or the correction of misalignment teeth.

Dental extractions can be surgical or non-surgical, and the method used depends on the condition of the teeth. If a tooth partly breaks in an inaccessible area, e.g. inside the gum, surgical intervention is appropriate. It requires a cut to expose the hidden part of the tooth. The non-surgical method involves the use of a dental elevator and forceps for the removal of a whole tooth.

With both methods, anesthesia is used to reduce the pain.

Post-extraction Recovery

Bleeding in the first hour after teeth extraction is normal. It usually takes this length of time for blood clots to form in the space created by the extracted teeth. It takes an additional week for the wound over this space to heal. Over the next one to two months, soft gum tissue will grow over the space, followed by permanent bone restructuring within a minimum of six months.
