What Is An Extraction?

This happens when you need to have a tooth removed, most likely due to disease, trauma, or crowding.

Different Types Of Extractions

One example of tooth extraction is the removal of your wisdom teeth. Other times, you may need one or two teeth removed if you are getting braces and need room for your teeth to shift into place. If you have excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, or crowding, your dentist may recommend having these teeth removed. 

The Process

In order to prepare for a tooth extraction, your dentist will take an X-ray of the tooth in question. Let your dentist know about all the medications you take and if you are going to be treated soon for another medical condition with bisphosphonate to avoid bone deterioration. Anything that has to do with your health—no matter how insignificant you may think it is—will be pertinent to your dentist to make sure the extraction is performed seamlessly. 

Simple vs. Surgical Extraction

These two extractions are dependent upon whether you have a visible tooth that needs to be removed or if it’s impacted. Impacted means the tooth has not broken through your gums yet. 

  • Simple Extraction: For this procedure, you’ll get a local anesthetic to avoid any pain during the procedure. The dentist will use an instrument known as the elevator to loosen the tooth and then remove it with forceps. 
  • Surgical Extraction: This procedure requires both local and intravenous anesthesia to keep you pain-free and relaxed. The dentist will then cut into your gums with a small incision and remove the bone around your tooth in order to remove the tooth entirely. 

Recovery

Make sure you cancel all your plans for the next few days to take the time to recover from the extraction. Here are some added tips to consider as you heal:

  • Apply an ice pack to your cheek after the procedure to reduce swelling, ten minutes on and ten minutes off.
  • Take the medication you were given as prescribed and over-the-counter painkillers when needed.
  • Don’t use a straw so you can avoid dry sockets.
  • Use pillows to prop your head when you choose to lay down. 
  • Eat only soft foods the day after the procedure, such as yogurt, pudding, and applesauce.
