At Signature Smiles, we take every effort to preserve your natural teeth. But there are some instances when tooth extraction is the only option. When a tooth cannot be saved, it must be professionally removed through a procedure called tooth extraction.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- Severely decayed or infected teeth which cannot be treated by root canal
- To make space for orthodontic/ braces treatment
- Badly positioned teeth
- Broken teeth which cannot be restored
- Advanced gum disease that makes teeth loose
- Partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth.
Types of Tooth Extractions
Most teeth which are visible in the mouth can be removed by simple extraction. In this procedure the dentist numbs the area around the tooth with local anaesthesia, loosens the tooth and carefully removes it. It takes a few minutes to complete this treatment.
In complex cases Surgical extractions are done to remove the teeth that are not easily accessible. Such teeth that are difficult to remove must be taken out in pieces. At Signature Smiles the surgical removal of teeth is done by our experienced Oral Surgeons. A surgical extraction may be needed if:
- Teeth that have not fully erupted or still under the gum line
- Teeth with curved roots or unusually large roots
- Teeth that have broken off at the gum line.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth, also called as ‘third molars’, can often cause problems during their eruption (breaking through the gum tissue). They may only erupt partially as there is less space in the jaw. They may be embedded completely in the jaw bone. They exert pressure on other teeth causing pain and hence have to be extracted. Also, they are difficult to clean as they are the last teeth and the tooth brush does not reach there.
So if infected it is best to extract them. At Signature Smiles we have a team of experienced oral surgeons for such extractions.
We have a variety of pain management techniques make all the extraction procedures comfortable and virtually a painless. They are completed in single visit and patients heal quickly after the procedure.
