(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Recommended For Simple Tooth Extraction

Simple tooth extractions are recommended for patients with heavily damaged teeth from trauma or cavities. The procedure is also recommended for patients with large root infections which cannot be safely treated in any other way. The procedure may also be recommended for patients with healthy wisdom teeth which need to be removed.

Overview

What is simple tooth extraction? Simple tooth extraction is one of the most common and possibly earliest types of dentistry procedures in the world. Since the field of dentistry became more advanced, simple tooth extractions are usually the last solution for patients with damaged teeth which cannot be treated by using restoration techniques such as dental bridges, tooth fillings or dental crowns.

Untreated root infections generally cause extensive tooth decay which leaves the tooth structure too weak for any other type of treatment – including root canal treatment. In these situations, the dentist will be forced to perform a simple tooth extraction in order to alleviate any swelling and pain the patient may experience.

In some cases, untreated root infections may affect nearby teeth as well, so a simple extraction of a tooth can also be considered a preventive measure.

Most adults will require a simple wisdom tooth extraction by the age of 30, even if the teeth are healthy.

Preparation

Patients may be required to have a set of dental X rays before undergoing simple tooth extraction. Any intake of anticoagulants, anti-inflammatory pills, and alcohol are prohibited for at least a few days before the procedure. Patients will also have to abstain from smoking and drinking alcohol for a week after the extraction takes place. 

How It Is Performed

This procedure is performed under local anesthesia instead of partial or general anesthesia. The dentist will begin by locating the affected tooth and checking the roots of the tooth. He will then start to make it loose by using a tool called an elevator before removing it entirely with the help of a forceps. Since this is a simple outpatient procedure, most patients will be able to go home right afterward.

Recovery

The recovery period after a simple tooth extraction is quite easy to manage. Patients can be prescribed painkillers to soothe any potential pain or discomfort. The total healing period lasts about 2 weeks, but the first few days are more important – patients need to abstain from smoking and drinking alcohol. Eating is also prohibited for several hours after the procedure.

Risks

Simple tooth extractions are very safe for the patient, but risks and complications can appear nonetheless. 

  • Infection - tooth extraction infections can develop if the root of the tooth is not removed entirely – in this situation, a different appointment with the dentist will be required.
  • Extraction dry socket – if the patient removes the blood clot from the gum after extracting the tooth a so-called “dry socket” will form, which can be quite painful.
  • Temporary nerve damage – this is the least frequent complication from a simple tooth extraction.

Side Effects

Side effects can include discomfort, light pain, and temporary numbness.

Faq

Simple Tooth Extraction VS Surgical Extraction?

The difference between the two is that with surgical extraction, the dentist will have to incise the patient's gum and possibly remove bone from the area.

 

What Is The Simple Tooth Extraction Healing Time?

The gum area should be fully healed in around two weeks.

 

When Will The Bleeding Stop?

The bleeding should stop in around 24 hours after the procedure was performed.
