What is Tooth Extraction and Why It’s Needed

Tooth extraction, exodontics, or simply “teeth pulling,” is a dental procedure that involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. Extraction becomes inevitable when a tooth is broken or severely damaged because of decay and cannot be restored using other means such as filling, root canal, crown, or onlay.

A tooth also needs to be pulled when there’s not enough space in the mouth. The affected tooth is impacting another tooth, causing pain and infections. Wisdom tooth are often impacted and may need to be extracted. Sometimes a wisdom tooth is partially protruding through the gum and may need to be removed surgically.

Factors to Consider for Tooth Extraction

First and foremost, don’t get a good tooth pulled. That’s why we examine the condition of the tooth closely to determine if an extraction is really required. After the extraction, you’ll need to take the medication that our dentists will prescribe. You’ll need to eat a soft diet and refrain from smoking or sucking on a straw for about 24 hours from the time of extraction. Surgery may be required where a tooth has broken below the gum line or has disintegrated into several pieces. Extraction is usually carried out under local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be required when several teeth need to be pulled.

Tooth Extraction Procedure at Platinum Dental Care MI, Livonia

Our friendly and helpful dentists will recommend medication if the affected tooth is infected. When the infection is healed, our doctors will inject your gum with a local anesthetic to make the extraction procedure painless. However, you may feel some pain or discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours of the extraction. We’ll give you medication to take care of the pain and accelerate healing. Expect to eat lots of ice cream and take soft diet for the next couple of days, and come in for a dental implant or bridge if you think you need it.
