Frequently Asked Questions on Tooth Extraction

What is tooth extraction?

The removal of teeth from the alveolar bone (bone of jaw) is called dental extraction. It is commonly called tooth removal.

Why are teeth removed?

There are many reasons for an individual to get his/her teeth removed. They are –
  • Excessive tooth decay
  • Tooth infection
  • Crowding of teeth
  • Patients undergoing orthodontic braces might need tooth removal for creating space
  • Patients undergoing chemotherapy might get compromised teeth removed
  • Patients undergoing organ transplantation might need the removal of compromised teeth
  • Severely broken teeth
  • Unerupted wisdom teeth

How is simple tooth extraction performed?

During a simple tooth removal procedure, you will receive a local anesthetic, which numbs the region around your tooth to feel pressure but not pain. Dr. Adatrow might use an instrument called the elevator or tooth forceps to loosen the tooth from its bone socket. Sometimes, our dental team prescribes you anti-anxiety medicine or sedation to assist with tooth removal. Mostly, over-the-counter pain medicines are appropriate for the management of pain.

Surgical tooth extraction is recommended in the following scenarios:
  • Badly broken teeth
  • Teeth with curved roots
  • Fragile or cracked teeth
  • Teeth with broad or long roots
  • Teeth merged in the jawbone

What is a simple tooth extraction?

Simple tooth extraction involves straight forward removal of a tooth from the jawbone. A general dentist or a specialist dentist performs this procedure?

Sedating a patient makes them comfortable and more cooperative. This makes our work more accessible, useful and increases the quality of work. Ultimately, it results in a more positive experience for both the patient and the dentist. Hence, we prefer to offer sedation for our patients and increase the success of our treatments.

What is a surgical tooth extraction?

A surgical extraction is carried out if the tooth cannot be accessed easily. This occurred when the tooth didn't erupt completely, or the tooth has fractured beneath the gum. Dr. Adatrow will make an incision in this procedure to lift-up the soft tissues covering the tooth. In several instances, the tooth can be separated into many sections to complete the removal quickly. Mostly, surgical extractions are performed under general anesthesia.

What measures do I have to take after the dental extraction procedure?

You can adhere to all the instructions we provide you after the surgery to ensure a faster recovery. We recommend the following measure after the procedure has been completed -
  1. Rest for 48-72 hours after the dental implant surgery.
  2. Sleep in a reclining position of 45 degrees by placing pillows under your head. This helps to reduce the swelling.
  3. Ice packs – put ice packs on the sides of your face, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off. It is essential to apply ice packs for the first two days after the surgery to help with swelling.
  4. Take your prescription medications as instructed.
  5. You may feel weird because of the anti-anxiety medicine you took before the operation. It usually subsides within 24 hours, but sometimes it can last up to 1 week.
