Dental extraction (exodontia) I.
A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. There are additional reasons for tooth extraction: paradontopathy (a disease of parodont), an impacted tooth (one that fails to erupt into the dental arch within the specific time), in preparation for orthodontic treatment (braces), etc. Simple extractions are performed usually under local anaesthetic. Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully.
Dental extraction (exodontia) II.
There are times when a tooth cannot be saved and it has to be removed from the body. Tooth decay does more than affect your smile. The infection could then spread, causing a myriad of health complications.
Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or "coming in sideways." They are often extracted when this occurs.
In our dentistry, before the dental extraction a panoramic x-ray is necessary for the oral surgeon to be able to evaluate and plan for the surgery.
Before the procedure, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. YOU WILL NOT FEEL ANY PAIN! We use special instruments to elevate and/or grasp the tooth. After it is removed, you may need stitches, so the wound will heal faster.
Some stitches dissolve over time, and some have to be removed after a few days. Your dentist will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. Having the stitches out is painless.
The duration of a tooth extraction cannot be defined because each of them depends on many different factors.
It is very important to follow the post operative instructions prescribed by your oral surgeon.
I was most satisfied with the service from both yourself and in Hungary. My teeth are great and very natural looking, they in no way look false. The clinic staff were lovely, friendly and most welcoming. The trips and transfers were well organized, and even had time for a city tour.
Thank you so much for your help.
