What Type of Teeth Might Be Removed?
Most patients are familiar with removing the third molars, or the “wisdom teeth,” as they are often referred to. However, other teeth might need removal, including teeth with extensive cavities, teeth impacted below the gums, or teeth that need to be removed before placing dentures or using orthodontic work to realign the dental arch.
What Type of Extractions are Performed?
There are two methods of dental extraction performed in our office, including simple extractions and surgical extractions. Patients who have teeth above the gums accessible to the dentist will undergo a simple extraction. We numb the area with an anesthetic and remove the tooth from the jawbone in a few minutes. Surgical extractions are used in situations where the tooth is not accessible. This type of extraction requires the dentist to remove gum tissue to access the tooth underneath. The recovery time for surgical tooth extraction is longer than for a simple extraction. Our providers will offer aftercare instructions for patients after their tooth removal to ensure the best healing process and reduce the risk of complications, including continued bleeding, infection, and dry socket.
