Tooth extraction is most likely one of the first dental procedures ever taken care of in a dental chair. Many centuries ago, this has been a much more brutal and painful experience than what it is today. Yet, although it is the last resort any dentist ever wants to turn to, there are severe cases of dental concerns where extraction is the only possible solution to reduce pain, resolve the concern and prevent further damage.
“Sometimes we see teeth that are so badly broken or decayed that there is no other option than to proceed with extraction,” says Dr Sunny Sihra, director at Simply Teeth Essex, the reputable provider of dental treatments for more than 40 years to the community in and around Essex.
During an extraction, your dental expert will remove the entire tooth and its root from the socket in the bone of the patient’s jawline. The procedure requires anaesthetics and can be painful for a while afterwards. The wound of the hole where the tooth was does need some healing and proper aftercare must be in place to prevent any kind of infection forming in the open wound. In certain severe cases, it might be that the dentist would have to insert a stitch or two to help the wound close properly. “Although the process sounds very brutal, it isn’t the case at all,” Dr Sihra states and then continues, “at our family practice we are fortunate to have some of the best dental experts on our team. These are people with years of experience and they know exactly how to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure.” The dental clinic also has some of the most advanced dental equipment to support these procedures.
“Before proceeding with tooth extraction, it is important to discuss the procedure with your patient,” Dr Sihra states. The expert highlights that information is a core focus of their successful treatment plans and thus the entire procedure is discussed with the patient. It is also when they highlight the benefits of the procedure as this is usually to prevent the spread of tooth decay, infection or when the tooth is damaged beyond repair. In certain cases, completely healthy teeth also require extraction. Overcrowding is the cause of major misalignment which can result in various other dental and health concerns. In these cases, tooth extraction can open up the space your teeth need to remain in proper alignment.
