What is a Tooth Extraction?

When a tooth is removed permanently from the tooth socket it is known as tooth extraction. In common terms, dental extraction is also known as “pulling” a tooth. If you are advised to get a tooth pulled by the dentist then do not worry our expert dentists at Genesis Dentistry are always available to offer their proficient services.

In which Cases does the Dentist Advise a Tooth Extraction?

Our priority at the dental clinic is to save natural teeth whenever possible. But sometimes, when no other treatment can save a tooth such as dental fillings or dental crowns then extraction is advised. If your tooth can not be repaired, then removal may be essential. Following are some of the few reasons that can lead you to the dental clinic for an extraction.

  • Deep Dental cavities
  • A fracture in the tooth.
  • When the teeth are severely impacted.
  • Non-aligned teeth.
  • Gum infections.
  • Tooth luxation
  • Other dental injuries.

What is the Procedure for a Tooth Extraction at Genesis Dentistry?

There are two types of teeth extractions such as simple or surgical. These types of extractions are opted for depending on whether your tooth is visible or impacted.

  • Simple Extraction

Firstly, the dentist will use a local anesthetic, which will numb the area around your tooth. After getting anesthesia feel only pressure, not pain, during the procedure. Our experts will then use an instrument to elevate or loosen the tooth and ultimately remove it.

  • Surgical extraction

If you are advised to have a surgical extraction then You will likely receive both local anesthesia and intravenous anesthesia. After getting the anesthesia the dentist will technically extract the tooth by making a cut into your gum with a small incision.

What to do After your Tooth Extraction?

After completion of the extraction procedure, our expert dentists will guide you with post-op instructions. According to our dentists during the healing process, you will consume soft foods, such as:

  • Soup
  • Pudding
  • Yogurt
  • Applesauce

Apart from that you can add smoothies to your diet, but remember not to use a straw. As your extraction site heals, you’ll be able to include more solid foods into your diet. Before that, our recommendation is to continue with a soft foods diet for a week.

If you want a speedy and easier recovery then follow these tips:  

  • Refrain from anything that might be a hurdle in normal healing.
  • Don’t smoke until complete recovery.
  • Avoid using a straw for 24 hours.
  • Follow instructions and diet plan.

When the recovery will be complete, you’ll most likely be able to go back to a regular diet. New bone and gum tissue will cover the extraction site. However, you will still need a replacement for normal teeth function. So, what are you waiting for call us today at Genesis Dentistry and take the first step towards good oral health.
