Why Dental Extractions

Why Dental Extractions

Dental extraction is the way toward removing a tooth (or teeth) from the mouth. Various reasons such as problematic wisdom teeth rotted teeth or having a tooth that is past restoration can be the primary reasons for doing so. Extractions are additionally done in readiness for some orthodontic medications.

Why are dental extractions needed by patients? Severe tooth decay and other oral diseases can be a reason, as mentioned earlier. Dental extraction is the best immediate solution to preventing the disease or infection from spreading. The same is true for gum diseases that could affect the way the gum tissues are attached to the tooth.

Dental extractions may also be required for giving space to a growing tooth if another is blocking its way. A wisdom tooth that has insufficient space to grow on is one example for this situation. This causes impact of the tooth and is called an impacted third molar. Any problematic teeth need to be removing when being set up for an orthodontic treatment, for example, connection of dental braces. Lost teeth after extraction may be replaced with implants to fill the gap.

Surgical extraction and simple extraction are two types of procedures. For simple extraction, a dental lift, forceps or some other instrument for getting a handle on the tooth, as well as local anesthetic, are the only materials required to perform the procedure. The tooth is loosened by rocking it back and forth with those materials.

Visible teeth are easier to remove with this method. On the other hand, more complex tool like drills and other devices used for cutting and breaking the tooth are required for surgical extractions. The process is usually done for teeth that are not effectively available, for example, an affected tooth and may require the tooth to be broken into different pieces for easier extraction.
