What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth Extraction is a dental procedure where a tooth is removed by an oral surgeon using dental tools and equipment. It's a simple technical procedure that requires local anesthesia. Patients often refer to this procedure as "Pulling a Tooth."

Reasons for Tooth Extraction:

Here are some reasons, on why teeth extraction is necessary:

  • Tooth damage due to severe decay.
  • A viable solution to periodontal disease.
  • Tooth extraction helps an impacted tooth.
  • To eliminate overcrowding teeth.
  • Necessary after an accident.
  • Teeth that forms an uneven bite.
  • Infected teeth that can't be saved.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure:

Here at BA-Dentist in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, before we begin wisdom teeth removal, we examine the patients regarding their medical history, such as whether they have any artificial joints, diabetes or a history of heart and valve diseases, they must also report the doctor of any medicines they are currently or have before taken. Whether a doctor or a specialist is doing the extraction, the method is the same. First, local anesthesia or sedation IV is given to make the treatment more convenient. Once the treatment area is numb the extraction begins, a dental tool called an elevator is utilized to wiggle the tooth in a socket after the tooth is freed, it is removed using forceps or in some more complex situations, a surgical hand-piece is also used to assist with the removal of the tooth. 

When should you have your wisdom teeth removed?

There is no particular explanation for everyone, however, if your dentist has recommended that your wisdom teeth look potentially problematic it's usually fine to extract them sooner, rather than later, this advice is based on the point that the younger you are the quicker you recover, the possibility of lingering numbness, jaw rupture or other complexities also raises with age, finally, the longer you neglect the painful wisdom tooth in your mouth, the longer it has to create further problems in the future.
