This might be done at a very advanced stage of tooth decay, or it might also be needed to remove parts of the teeth which are severely affected by trauma. At Penrith Dental Clinic, we try to avoid Tooth Extraction unless there is no other way.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Here are a few reasons for Tooth Extraction
No other treatment will be effective
Severely damaged teeth
Advanced stage of tooth decay
Advanced gum disease or infection
Preparation for cosmetic treatments
Our dentists will recommend Tooth Extraction only after detailed examination of the teeth
Tooth Extraction Procedure
This is how the Tooth Extraction procedure is carried out.
Sedatives or local anaesthesia will be given
After the sedative takes effect, the teeth will be slowly removed with the help of forceps
In some cases, drilling or other surgical procedures might be necessary
After the tooth is removed, a gauze will be placed to facilitate blood clot
You will be advised on the procedure and the post-op care for the next few days
Sometimes, the dentist might ask you to visit the clinic once again
Post-operative Care for Tooth Extraction
The socket (area where the teeth is removed) will take some time for blood clotting. There might be bleeding for a while. If the bleeding persists for a very long time, contact the dentist immediately.
It is recommended that you do not disturb the socket with your tongue or fingers since it will cause the bleeding to start again. For a week or two, it is also advised that you chew on the other side of your mouth.
