Teeth extraction

November 11, 2022
Teeth extraction is a surgical procedure that removes one or more of the teeth. As a result of tooth decay, the tooth is no longer able to support the tooth’s natural position in the mouth. If the tooth is not extracted, it can cause serious damage to the surrounding teeth and jaw.

A teeth extraction is a simple dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from the mouth. Extractions are typically performed by a dentist or oral surgeon and can be done for a variety of reasons.

There are many reasons why you might need a teeth extraction. Some common reasons include:

-Tooth decay: If a tooth is severely decayed, it may need to be extracted.

-Infection: If a tooth is infected, it may need to be removed to prevent the infection from spreading.

-Crowding: If your teeth are too crowded, your dentist may recommend extracting one or more teeth to make room for the rest of your teeth.

-Impacted teeth: Impacted teeth are teeth that have not erupted through the gum line. Impacted teeth may need to be extracted if they are causing pain or crowding other teeth.

Before your extraction, your dentist will numb the area around your tooth with local anesthesia. Once you are numb, your dentist will use a dental instrument called an elevator to loosen your tooth from the socket.
