Tooth Extraction

When we required to extract teeth?

Extracting a tooth is required when decay or an abscessed root is so severe that no other way will cure the disease. It can help keep the infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth.

Causes of Extracting Teeth

Having a tooth removal (Pulling a Tooth) in adulthood is sometimes required. Although permanent/adult teeth can serve a lifetime, teeth that have grown broken or decayed may need to be removed or extracted. A very common reason includes a tooth that is too seriously damaged, from injury or decay, to be fixed.

If tooth decay or damage extends to the pulp — the center of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels — bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp, leading to infection.

Tooth Decay

Universal, tooth decay is the most obvious cause for a tooth removal. Patients that require to have a tooth extracted due to tooth decay may have avoided noticing the doctor for an exam and cleaning for years. You see, it usually takes years for tooth decay to get to the point of tooth loss. 

In its initial stages, tooth decay attacks the enamel of the tooth. Once it wears through the enamel, the central portion of the tooth, the dentin, begins to decline. As the decay eats a hole through the center of the tooth, the tooth hurts further damage. 

When the bacteria reach the center, or pulp, of the tooth, it occurs in a root canal infection. The longer the patient goes without treatment, the more extensive the disease and damage. If tooth decay has grown so severe that the tooth can’t be saved, our oral surgeons may recommend extraction, followed by tooth restoration treatment.

A crowded mouth.

Seldom dentists remove teeth to make the mouth for orthodontics. The purpose of orthodontics is to properly adjust the teeth, which may not be viable if your teeth are too large for your mouth. Furthermore, if a tooth cannot cut through the gum (erupt) because there is no room in the mouth for it, your dentist may recommend extraction.

Gum infection

The first stages of gum infection make the degeneration of the gum tissue, ligaments, and ossein that hold the teeth. As the helping houses of the teeth decay, the teeth become free. Finally, gum disease will cause the teeth to fall out on their own, or the teeth may require extraction, along with gum disease and tooth replacement treatment.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth extraction is one of the more general categories of tooth removal. Many dental experts will suggest removing wisdom teeth (third molars) before they are fully formed — normally in the teenage years — to help reduce potential problems. One problem that could occur is the development of an affected tooth that has surfaced and has no place in the mouth to grow. Other difficulties connected with impacted teeth include infection, the decay of adjacent teeth, bite inhibition and gum disease.

Risk of infection

If your immune system is negotiated even the risk of potential disease in a appropriate tooth may be a reason to remove the tooth.

What to Expect During Treatment?

Earlier to removal, your Expert or oral surgeon will examine your healing and dental records and take X-rays. At the removal appointment, your doctor will paralyze, or anesthetize, the tooth to be removed, as well as the jawbone and gums enclosing it. Typically, a local anesthetic such as novocaine or lidocaine is injected to reduce discomfort.
