What is tooth extraction?
Get results you love
Simply put, extracting a tooth removes it entirely. Any damaged tooth above the gum line is removed. The tooth structure below the gum line, along with the entire attached root system is also removed.
A tooth that has been extracted by your dentist cannot be re-attached. There are occasions where healthy adult teeth that have been knocked out may be successfully implanted.
Are there any other options to tooth extraction?
If your wisdom teeth are responsible for other dental concerns, then there really are no alternatives to consider.
It might sound like it will be a painful procedure to remove a tooth. Prior to the extraction, your dentist will ensure that the tooth and surrounding gum tissue are completely numb. Patients should feel little more than pressure during tooth extractions.
During the procedure, the dentist will grip the tooth firmly using specialised tools. The tooth will be rocked back and forth with the specialised tools. This will result in the socket widening slightly and the roots loosening. After a short amount of time, the tooth should be pulled free from your mouth.
There are some more complicated extractions where the tooth could prove to be somewhat stubbornly set. In these situations, the dentist may need to break up the tooth and remove it in pieces. While this may sound like something that’ll be painful and cause more discomfort, it’s quite common. When teeth are anchored well, have curved roots or are impacted, it becomes necessary to take additional steps during the extraction.
During the entire procedure you should feel only the slight pressure of the tooth being manipulated.
After surgical tooth extraction patients may be wondering what type of healing they can expect. The good news is that tooth extraction healing is often swift and uncomplicated. Following after-care instructions will ensure that patients avoid a painful condition known as dry socket.
While every effort should be made to preserve the natural tooth, it can prove to be more beneficial to remove it completely. This can help to prevent problematic and repeated infections, and of course help to eliminate pain that patients may have been feeling from that damaged or decayed tooth.
Another advantage is that removing damaged teeth can help to avoid the spread of decay and infection. Infection from the tooth could spread and enter into the blood stream. It can lead to the potential for sepsis, and also irreversible heart damage.
Once a tooth has been extracted, unless it has been extracted to make additional room in the mouth, it will need to be replaced. Gaps between teeth can lead to shifting of the other teeth and can also lead to bone loss in the jaw. Working with your dentist, you can work towards a solution to replace the extracted teeth so that it need not prove to be a disadvantage to remove damaged teeth.

The loss of teeth can happen for any number of reasons. Whether the result of serious decay or an injury, the tooth that was lost left a gap between teeth that needs to be addressed. While the loss of some teeth may not have an immediate impact on your smile they can have an impact on your bite.
There are occasions where the decay or damage to a tooth may be too extensive to be treated with a simple filling, but not quite extensive enough to need the full-coverage of a crown. In these types of situations, the best option for tooth restoration may be to consider dental inlays or onlays.
