More About Tooth Extraction
If you have a tooth that is severely decayed, is broken beyond repair, or you have advanced periodontal disease, you may require a tooth extraction. Other reasons for extraction include teeth that are poorly positioned or that must be removed to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
The Extraction Process
Dr. Carbonell will numb your tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. While you won’t feel pain during the extraction, you will feel pressure that is created when your tooth is rocked back and forth to widen the socket for removal. If you feel pain at any time, please let us know right away.
If a tooth is firmly anchored or has a curved root, the socket may not be able to expand enough to remove it. In these cases, sectioning is required. Sectioning requires the doctor to cut the tooth into sections, allowing for easy removal, one section at a time.
After Your Extraction
After your extraction, you must allow time for a blood clot to form. This is achieved by biting firmly on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes after the procedure. Once a blood clot forms, it is important not to dislodge the clot. Avoid using straws, smoking, drinking alcohol, or brushing close to the extraction site for 72 hours.
You may experience discomfort and swelling after your extraction. An ice pack and mild pain medications (as prescribed) will help as the site heals. After a few days, you resume your normal activities.
Even a single missing tooth can cause problems with the jaw joint, shifting teeth, your ability to chew properly, even your ability to speak. For this reason, Dr. Carbonell will discuss options that will help you avoid these complications.
