At Queens Medical Center, we give tooth extraction for any aged individuals. Painless tooth removal is possible using advanced dental care procedures. Our team of dental care providers will try their best to keep the teeth and move for extraction if left with that option to protect the health of your remaining teeth.
Dentists and oral surgeons perform tooth extraction surgery. Upon providing local or general anesthesia as per the requirement, the dentist will tear off the gum and bone tissue covering the tooth. Then they carefully take out the teeth with the help of forceps and windup the surgical extraction with required dressings. The blood clot that develops usually after the surgical teeth removal may get stopped in a while or else, the dentist will advise on the further procedures to be followed to stop bleeding. Your gum heals naturally with a course of antibiotics.
Any injury to the teeth and its associated periodontal ligament, gums, alveolar bone as well as the nearby soft tissues including the lips and tongue may attract a tooth extraction procedure.
Irreparable tooth disease
Any sort of excessive damage caused to the tooth through tooth decay or any periodontal disease that can lead to death. In the first place, no Dentist will recommend for tooth extraction if there is any less possibility to sustain the teeth as healthy.
All sorts of inconsistencies between tooth size and jaw size can be resolved best with the extraction of unnecessary teeth. Misalignment of the row due to large teeth, small jaws, or both also can be treated and fixed well with a tooth extraction.
Teeth Extraction Procedures
Permanent teeth are granted forever. Any damage or infection leading the teeth to a stage of non-functional status remains only an extraction procedure to help with adjacent teeth. If extraction is not done for a particular tooth with no chance of survival, nearby teeth also may get affected and even lead to a loss. We adopt very careful procedures in all kinds of tooth extraction.
To make the area, numb, our dentist gives local anesthesia before the procedure and confirms the degree of numbness to go for teeth removal. In the case of more than one teeth removal, we provide general anesthetic. Throughout the teeth extraction procedures, we closely monitor for any unexpected scenes. Before moving to the procedure, we also check on with any kind of health situation, where tooth extraction may cause health issues.
Do’s and Don’ts with During and After Tooth Extraction
- Only eat tender things on the day of the surgery – fluids, milk, ice cream, puddings, etc. The following day, you may begin eating other foods only if you have the appetite. We advise that you pay attention to what your body says in this case and not force yourself to eat foods you’re not strong enough to chew.
- Try to minimize or avoid doing any tedious activities for at least two hours after the surgery. Don’t suck or spit, as this will cause the formation of a blood clot.
- It is normal for your saliva to be tinged with blood for several hours after the surgery. Following the instructions above will help you control the bleeding and swelling.
- If by the second day after extraction the swelling persists it’s likely that you have an infection and should contact the dentist.
- Try to keep your head raised, it’ll stop the build-up of fluids in the head area.
- Keep the surgery area clean. Get rid of food particles for the place to heal properly
