Extraction Surgery at DentalZorg© Premium Clinic

Extraction Surgery, Why does is happen? Do you need to get a tooth pulled and may require surgery to do it? You're in good place. Extraction surgeries are actually the most common surgical procedure in the world. In most cases, when a tooth is removed, it's a pretty straightforward process. Sometimes though, it's a bit more complicated and requires a more involved procedure. Here's why tooth extraction happens in the first place, why a surgical extraction of teeth may become necessary, and how to care for your mouth after surgical extraction. 

Reasons

For Extraction Surgery

By taking an x-ray and examining your tooth, your dentist can usually determine whether or not you’ll need a simple or surgical extraction. There are times when a simple extraction requires a surgical procedure though. For example, if a tooth breaks off during the procedure, your dental professional may need to do a more extensive surgical procedure.

Post-Extraction

Surgery Instructions

Rest your mouth. Avoid unnecessary talking, eating, and drinking for two hours after the extraction. Also, don't use straws, smoke, or spit while you're recovering.
Consume liquids and soft foods. Drink plenty of lukewarm or cold fluids after the bleeding subsides. Liquids and soft foods are usually recommended before returning to your regular diet. Your dentist will let you know what diet is recommended for your recovery.
Avoid brushing the area. Don't rinse or brush your teeth for 12 hours. You can then brush your teeth as you usually would, avoiding the teeth around the extraction site. Your dentist may ask you to rinse with a prescription mouthwash or warm salt water.
Listen to your dentist about pain meds. Follow your dentist's instructions regarding taking any prescribed pain medications. These medications can help you heal without suffering but have certain risks. Discuss the risks and benefits of using prescription pain medication with your dentist before taking these medications.
If pain or bleeding continues, contact your dentist right away. Doing so is essential in your healing process and will prevent complications. 

So if you need to get your tooth surgically extracted, you have nothing to worry about. With today's modern procedures and anesthesia, the extraction will provide you with better oral health in the long run. Now you know why teeth need to get extracted and why your dentist might need to perform a surgical extraction. After treatment, you may need to care for your stitches and eat soft or liquid foods. Also, make sure you don't brush the healing area. It's always essential to follow your dentist's instructions after a procedure and call them if you have any persistent pain or bleeding. So if your extraction procedure is coming up, you can feel confident and prepared.
