Dental Extraction – A Difficult Choice for the Patient

Getting rid of teeth which have already caused significant discomfort can be difficult decision especially when you want your tooth extraction to be as painless as possible.

Many people with tooth decay, periodontal disease or trauma to their teeth are some issues that may be too advanced for the tooth to be restored, and patients suffering from them will frequently have severe dental pain or a toothache. The most common indicators of imminent tooth extractions are dental decay, a failed root canal or a troublesome wisdom teeth extraction.

Tooth extractions can be either urgent or opted for. In urgent cases, they are carried out by our best dentist in Tijuana, when a patient is in severe pain and the only solution to relieve his or her discomfort is by tooth extraction.

Sometimes, due to trauma, a tooth is loosened and displaced from its normal position in a way that patient becomes unable to close his or her mouth. This situation also requires urgent tooth extraction for the sake of the patient comfort.

Tooth extractions are usually reserved when a patient can comfortably wait for a few weeks or even months before the tooth is removed. This is a common scenario for the removal of wisdom teeth which are not causing any discomfort but are prone to experience episodes of infection anytime in future.

How Do I Know if You Need a Tooth Extraction?

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted. A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it can’t be saved, even with bone replacement surgery (bone graft).

Here are other reasons:

  • Some people have extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in.
  • Sometimes baby teeth don't fall out in time to allow the permanent teeth to come in.
  • People getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place.
  • People receiving radiation to the head and neck may need to have teeth in the field of radiation extracted.
  • Some teeth may need to be extracted if they could become a source of infection after an organ transplant. People with organ transplants have a high risk of infection because they must take drugs that decrease or suppress the immune system.

If any teeth need to be extracted, this should be done before your drug treatment begins. Having a tooth extraction after bisphosphonate treatment increases the risk of osteonecrosis (death of bone) in the jaw.

In a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. Then the dentist uses an instrument called a forceps to remove the tooth. A surgical extraction is a more complex procedure. It is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not come into the mouth yet.

What Types of Extractions Are There?

There are two types of extractions, the simple and the surgical extraction.

  • Simple extraction. This is done on a tooth that can easily be seen in the mouth. A general dentist does this very easily with the use of an instrument called an elevator. Once the tooth is made loose, a pair of forceps is used to extract the tooth from its socket.
  • Surgical Extraction. This is a more complicated procedure, which occurs in case a tooth has broken off at the gum level. In this procedure a cut is made into the gum, which sometimes is required to partially cut the bone around the affected tooth. In other instances, the tooth is split into two halves to extract it.

During the surgery, it is important to note that you should be feeling pressure and not pain. Here at Trust Dental Care, we have state-of-the-art technology to help provide minimally-invasive and pain-free procedures.

If more than a few teeth need to be extracted or wisdom teeth removal is as well considered our dentist may ask you to get a larger x-ray done, usually referred to as a panoramic radiograph.
  • Step 4: A simple tooth extraction begins with the application of a topical local anesthetic agent in the form of a gel, so the patient doesn’t feel a thing.

Our mexican dentists will give you a complete set of instructions involving wound care, diet modification, and medicine prescription. You are usually not allowed to take hot and hard food for a couple of days. However, intake of liquid and cold diet can be initiated as soon as after thirty minutes of tooth extraction.

Difference Between Wisdom Teeth & Other Tooth Extractions

Many people still do not understand the difference between regular teeth and wisdom teeth. Normal teeth are the set of teeth that grow into place after losing baby teeth. Wisdom teeth are an extra set of molars that sometimes emerge at the very end of the row of teeth, both sides top and bottom. This extra set of four teeth need to be extracted to prevent problems that may develop. However, when it comes to extractions, the normal teeth do not need to be pulled out unless the teeth or tooth can no longer be saved with treatment.

Wisdom teeth removal and extraction is necessary for patients when their jaw and normal teeth are experiencing health issues. The extraction is even done to prevent issues from developing too. Problems that may occur with wisdom teeth, include misdirection growth, trapped germs and food dislodged in gums, infection and the jaw may not be large enough to support them.

Normal tooth extractions resolve other issues that are disrupting a patient’s dental hygiene. Tooth extractions are necessary to treat decay that reached deep in the tooth, infection has damaged a large part of the tooth and the bone, or the existing teeth may not have enough room in the mouth. There are even patients that have more teeth growing in behind the already existing tooth, to avoid root damage or infection to the other teeth and extraction will be performed.

Wisdom tooth extraction is done to remove teeth that cause pain or that may cause infection and dental problems. Impacted teeth may not reveal any signs of pain or danger to the patient, but there may be future infections or pain that take place beneath the gums and result into serious dental problems. Even if wisdom teeth emerge correctly without any disruption to the gums, they may be forcing their presence in line next to the other teeth and that can cause the teeth to shift. Shifting teeth will make the patient feel the need to wear corrective braces to realign their shifted teeth.

Unlike normal teeth, wisdom teeth need to be surgically cut out of the patient’s mouth. The treated areas will be numbed with a local anesthetic to avoid the feeling of pain and discomfort. The dentist will then make incisions in the gums to remove the hidden teeth and pull out any emerged wisdom teeth.

Removing normal teeth is necessary for decayed teeth or for teeth that are no longer responding to treatment. The extraction will keep infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth.
