Simply defined, tooth extraction is the surgical removal of a tooth. Teeth may require extraction for a number of reasons. Patients of all ages normally need at least one extraction in their lifetime, from removing unnecessary third molars (wisdom teeth) to removing deciduous (baby) teeth when younger patients are going through the period of tooth transition where permanent teeth begin to emerge. Whatever the reason for extraction, our team of oral surgeons strives to ensure patient comfort during their procedures and while recovering.
Extractions for Full-Mouth Rehabilitation or Dental Implants
Many patients undergoing full mouth rehabilitation require extractions for injured or decayed teeth that cannot be saved with restorations and endodontic therapy. Before receiving dental implants or dentures, teeth might need to be removed, too. When a tooth is extracted, our oral surgeons remove the visible portion of the tooth along with the roots that are anchored in the jawbone.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth often require extraction because they come in long after other permanent teeth have emerged. While most permanent teeth erupt the gums during late childhood and the early teens, wisdom teeth typically do not emerge until the early years of adulthood. This can cause many problems for patients. Wisdom teeth may crowd and shift existing teeth to unhealthy positions and can even become impacted. Removing wisdom teeth is often necessary to prevent the development of orthodontic problems and prevent these unnecessary teeth from becoming impacted in the gums.
Tooth Extraction Aftercare
After a tooth extraction procedure, our team will provide instructions to help our patients enjoy a speedy recovery and to prevent minor complications such as dry socket. Patients will receive instructions on how to clean the surgical site and maintain good oral hygiene along with information on which foods are best to consume the days following surgery. The extraction site will develop a clot, which is part of the natural healing process. It is important that this clot is not disturbed and is allowed to form. For example, patients should not touch the surgical site with their fingers or brush the area vigorously after surgery.
