When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

You may require a tooth extraction if:

  • You have a severely damaged tooth due to a traumatic injury.
  • You have severe tooth decay or gum disease that has compromised the structure of one or several teeth.
  • Your mouth is overcrowded and a tooth has to be removed to protect the other teeth.

Dental extraction is a procedure that is only recommended when all other alternatives have failed. At WiSE Dental, our dental team will always present you with the pros and cons of every treatment and help you make the right choice.

Types of Tooth Extraction Services

There are two main types of tooth extractions:

Simple Extractions

A simple extraction is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth. This is an easy procedure that your dentist will perform in the chair and involves a local anaesthetic. The dentist will apply pressure to the tooth to loosen it and then remove it using special dental tools until it is properly removed from the socket.

If the tooth breaks during the procedure, the dentist will remove the fragments quite easily. A simple extraction is a painless procedure and involves minimal discomfort.

How Long Does it Take to Recover?

Your dentist will ask you to not rinse your mouth or spit for a day after the procedure to keep the blood clot in place and improve healing. Smoking should be avoided because it dries out the socket, making it prone to infection.

Surgical Extractions

Teeth that are not easily accessible will require a surgical extraction. If a tooth is broken under the gum line or has only partially erupted, a surgical extraction may be necessary.

A surgical extraction is performed with the patient under local anaesthesia or IV sedation. At WiSE Dental, we do our very best to find a solution that reduces dental anxiety and discomfort.

How Long Does it Take to Recover?

Recovering from a surgical extraction takes longer than a simple extraction. There may be excess swelling which may require the patient to take more time off work. Your dentist will recommend soft foods to protect the affected area and ask you to avoid smoking, drinking and other activities for a period of time.
