Tooth Extraction

Compare 23 clinics

Tooth extraction is a well-known dental treatment. Usually, it is the last solution for patients who cannot count on tooth repair due to severe damage exercised on it. If they have broken or deeply cracked tooth to the point where a dentist cannot fix it, getting teeth pulled seem to be the only choice. Similarly, a developed tooth decay caused by tooth infection may deem root canal treatment impossible, again forcing dentist to perform a tooth extraction. Then, dental implants can be planted in the place of pulled teeth.

Tooth Extraction Candidates

Patients with dental problems such as advanced tooth decay or irreparably cracked tooth are best candidates for teeth removal and consequently – dental implants. Other rather common type of this dental surgery is wisdom teeth extraction due to their incorrect growth.

Am I Suitable 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.

Preparing for Tooth Extraction

The first step in your preparation for tooth extraction is consultation with your dental hygienist. It is reasonable to inform about all medical conditions you suffer from as well as a list of your medicines if they can affect the teeth removal procedure in any way. Some dentists additionally suggest fasting for several hours before this oral surgery.

How is Tooth Extraction 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.

Tooth Extraction Recovery

If a patient undergoes a normal tooth extraction, the recovery period is relatively easy. For a few days after tooth removal, patients should take popular painkillers and avoid irritating a place of extraction. As for surgical tooth removal, the amount of pain may be significantly higher and therefore dentist may prescribe stronger painkillers to the patient.

Tooth Extraction Risks and Complications

Although tooth extraction is a common dental treatment, there are some risks and complications attached to it. If the bleeding does not stop during first 24 hours of your oral surgery, a so-called dry socket may develop, causing increasing pain. Similarly, an infection may develop in little wounds left in the place of removed tooth. 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.

Tooth Extraction 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 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 Tooth Extraction

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