My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Tooth Extraction

This procedure is recommended for patients with irreparably cracked teeth or teeth with extensive decay as a last resort. The dentist will try all available treatments in order to save the tooth from extraction. The only teeth which can be removed even if they are healthy are wisdom teeth – this is done in order to alleviate any pain or to stop them from pushing other teeth while growing incorrectly.

Not Recommended For Tooth Extraction

If you have problems with tooth decay due to tooth infection or there is a serious crack in it which cannot be repaired – you are eligible for this oral surgery. However, your dentist will have a final say in this matter since teeth removal is an irreversible decision

Overview

A tooth extraction is possibly one of the first dentistry procedures available in the history of humankind. Nowadays with the advancement of dentistry, tooth extractions usually represent the last solution for patients who have extensively damaged teeth which cannot be fixed in some other way such as a dental crown, tooth filling or bridge. Extensive tooth decay caused by root infections may also leave the tooth too weak for any other treatment, inclusive root canal treatment. These situations usually force the dentist to perform a tooth extraction in order to eliminate the infection and alleviate other symptoms such as swelling or pain. It's also important to note that certain infections, if left untreated, can affect nearby healthy teeth as well. Patients who opt for a tooth extraction at some point have several choices available, including dental bridges or dental implants.

Wisdom teeth can be removed if they grow too large or if they grow at an angle – most patients will have their wisdom teeth removed around the age of 30, even if the teeth are healthy. 

Preparation

Preparing for a tooth extraction begins with a dental check-up. The dentist will likely require some X rays of the affected tooth before the procedure can begin. Patients are required to abstain from smoking, drinking, intake of anti-inflammatory pills, or anticoagulants for at least a week before the procedure is set to begin. Patients are also required to inform their dentist of any current medical condition or medicines they are taking, since some pills may have an adverse effect on the healing part of the procedure. 

How It Is Performed

There are two main types of tooth extraction. First one is a simple dental treatment. A dentist uses the so-called elevator to loosen the tooth in question and then proceeds to pull it with forceps. However, in the case of seriously broken or cracked tooth, a more serious, surgical tooth extraction may be required. Similarly, wisdom tooth removal can be performed in this way if the tooth is not exposed. In surgical tooth removal, a dentist is often forced to make a cut in patient’s gums in order to perform the extraction. The whole dental treatment is performed under local or general anaesthesia. 

Recovery

The recovery period for patients undergoing a normal tooth extraction is quicker and relatively easy to manage. The tooth extraction healing period lasts up to one or two weeks and most patients will be prescribed light painkillers to avoid any discomfort. Patients will also be required to avoid eating for several hours after the procedure takes place and to avoid, smoking, drinking alcohol, sodas or coffee. This is done in order to ensure a quicker healing period for the gums.

Patients undergoing surgical tooth removal will have to deal with some pain which can be managed by the use of stronger painkillers. 

Risks

Tooth extraction is a very common dental treatment but risks and complications do exist, such as tooth extraction infections, or tooth extraction dry socket to name a few. If the tooth extraction blood clot does not form in place of the tooth’s roots or if the blood clot is removed by the patient during smoking for example, a so-called tooth extraction dry socket can develop, which can cause extensive pain. 

Other relatively rare complications such as tooth extraction infections can also develop in some cases. These complications can be treated easily with antibiotics prescribed by the dentist. 

Apart from these risks, there are other, less frequent ones, including temporary or permanent nerve damage, damage to the jaw or other teeth caused by the dentist during tooth removal. However, all of these occurrences should be possible to be dealt with. 

Side Effects

Numbness after anaesthesia may last for a few hours after your tooth extraction. Apart from it, there is a swelling and bleeding expected, accompanied by pain. Apart from them, there are no other tooth extraction side effects. Tooth extraction swelling should gradually decrease over the course of a few days.

Success Rates

While there are no exact tooth extraction success rates available, it is thought to finish with success most of the time. After all, it is a very popular and well-known dental treatment belonging to standards of dental care in the world. 

Before And After

An empty space after tooth removal is usually filled by a dental implant, which helps to restore a natural look of one’s smile

Faq

Should I Choose Root Canal Treatment or Tooth Extraction? 
It is not really a matter of choice. Root canal treatment is the first choice for most dentists. However, if it is not possible due to extensive tooth decay, a tooth extraction is performed. 

Is Tooth Extraction Painful? 
It should not be since you will be under partial or general anaesthesia. If it starts to hurt during dental treatment, you should signal to your dental hygienist. 

When Should I Expect Bleeding to Stop after Tooth Extraction? 
If the bleeding after tooth extraction lasts for more than 24 hours you should definitely contact your dentist.
