Tooth extraction procedure
Tooth extraction is a type of surgical intervention in dentistry. The main goal of this treatment is to maintain dental health. At the same time, unfortunately, sometimes it is not possible to restore a sick tooth and it is necessary to remove it. This allows you to prevent further complications and return the patient to the usual way of life. It should be noted that after removal, prosthetics can be performed in order to restore the aesthetics of the smile, as well as the full function of the chewing and speech apparatus.
The indications for the tooth extraction procedure are as follows:
- In the event that the dental crown is badly damaged and cannot be restored.
- In the presence of pronounced tooth mobility.
- During the occurrence of cracks and fractures of the tooth root.
- In case of improper eruption of wisdom teeth.
- If a wisdom tooth grows incorrectly and destroys an adjacent tooth.
- In case of an inflammatory process that is not amenable to the treatment process.
- When straightening teeth, as recommended by an orthodontist.
Features of the procedure
This procedure is performed within twenty minutes. In a difficult situation, this process can take about forty minutes, for example, when the tooth takes an oblique or horizontal position, or is hidden under the gum. Due to effective anesthesia, the process of tooth extraction is carried out in conditions quite comfortable for the patient, without pain or any worries. Note that, if necessary, this procedure can be performed altogether - in a dream. After the tooth has been removed, the socket healing process takes place. Adhering to the recommendations of the dentist on oral hygiene, the healing process will be completed in one to two weeks. Modern methods of plasma therapy can speed up this process.
The tooth extraction process consists of the following steps:
- Comprehensive diagnostics in progress. The dentist gets acquainted with the patient's medical history, finds out the presence of allergic diseases, examines the oral cavity and performs X-ray diagnostics.
- Using computerized STA anesthesia, effective pain relief is performed.
- Tooth extraction is performed with a gentle method, without damaging the mucous membrane and tissues that surround the tooth.
- One week after removal, the sutures are examined and removed.
