Why Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

We give you the best care and treatment to ensure the best results for your oral health

At Complete Smiles, we consider tooth extraction to be a last resort and help you take steps to prevent this. Unfortunately, at times the prognosis is too poor to let the tooth remain.

There are several reasons that can lead to your tooth needing to be removed. Regular check-ups and good oral health can help prevent the need for this, however, you may consider extraction in the following cases:

Infection:
If the decay process is such that it extends to the pulp (the centre of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels), microbes from your mouth can enter the pulp leading to infection. If the infection is so severe that the resulting abscess is too large or too well established, extraction may be the only option.

Overcrowding:
In the past, dentists have had requests by orthodontists to remove teeth to prepare the mouth for braces. We believe that this is rarely the case and extraction of perfectly healthy teeth should be avoided unless all other options have been exhausted.

Wisdom teeth removal:
Wisdom teeth problems usually occur when they erupt into an area which cannot fully accommodate them.

Here are some reasons why wisdom teeth surgery could be required:

• Where there have been recurrent episodes of pain within a 6-month period which has resulted in a need for antibiotics.
• Where the position of the wisdom tooth is causing the neighbouring tooth to collect bacteria because the area cannot be maintained with normal oral hygiene procedures, resulting in decay of the neighbouring tooth.

Broken Teeth:
Teeth may be so broken down that there is not enough remaining to build a restoration on. Keeping the remaining tooth may lead to collection of bacteria and therefore extraction is recommended.

Mobile Teeth:
If teeth are significantly mobile (to the extent that you become aware of it), this may be a result of significant bone loss due to severe gum disease.

How is a wisdom tooth extracted?

To establish if your wisdom tooth needs extraction, your dentist will take an x-ray of your mouth. They can then decide whether extraction is necessary and if it can be carried out by themselves or by an oral surgeon.

For the treatment you will be given an injection of local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and the area surrounding it. Depending on how far the tooth has come through the gum, an incision may need to be made into the gum to access the tooth. Your dentist may cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to extract.

You shouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure, but you may feel some pressure as your dentist rocks the tooth to widen the socket, enabling the tooth to be removed.

Once the tooth is out, dissolving stitches may be used if an incision has been made. In some cases you may be prescribed antibiotics if you have an ongoing infection.

For 24 hours after treatment avoid drinking hot liquids, alcohol, and smoking, and avoid strenuous physical activity.

Wisdom tooth extraction cost will vary based on the location of the tooth and the degree of the deformity.

What are the benefits of tooth extraction?

Although we try our best to avoid it, there are benefits to tooth extraction when it is necessary. These benefits include:

• Removing a problem such as infection, before it does further damage.
• Relieve you from pain caused by a damaged or infected tooth.
• It could save the rest of your teeth and stop the spread of decay and disease.
• Although it may feel unpleasant to lose a natural tooth, it does mean you can consider further treatment, such as a bridge or dentures to make your teeth look as good as new.

Tooth Extraction FAQs

Typically, the first step in tooth extraction procedures is to numb the area with a local anaesthetic. This does require an injection, which may feel like a sharp pinch. Some dentists use a numbing gel near the injection area to make things more comfortable. This helps prevent any pain or discomfort during the injection. During the extraction, there is little to no sensation felt. Some patients do mention feeling pressure as the tooth is removed. If a tooth is being removed because it has already decayed, the nerve endings of that tooth will already be dead and therefore the nerves will no longer be alive.

Once the treatment is done, detailed at-home care instructions will be handed over to the patient. To speed up the recovery and avoid any complications, patients must stick to given at-home instructions carefully. However, do know that the recovery duration varies from patient to patient.

Smoking after the treatment is prohibited, as it can be a cause for different complications. Smoking can also cause the formed blood clot to dislodge, which conducts to a painful dry socket. This blood clot plays an important role in the healing of the Socket. Additionally, various complications may occur if the patient smokes after teeth extractions, high blood pressure, dizziness, dry socket, risk of getting an infection, and slower healing process.
