Trauma, illness, and poor hygiene impact your dental health and can damage your beautiful smile. Dentists work to maintain the health and appearance of their patients’ mouths. Saving natural teeth is their goal. Unfortunately, there are times when the structural integrity of the tooth is severely damaged and the tooth cannot be saved. Extractions may be necessary.
In trying to maintain the natural teeth, surgical extractions are usually not the first choice in dentistry. Your dentist weighs the options to determine the best course of action for the patient’s overall health. There are considerations when undergoing a surgical procedure.
- The benefits of surgery should outweigh the risks. For example, extractions clear out the bacteria without the fear of leaving damaged tissue behind.
- There is recovery time. Your dentist’s advice should be followed to ensure the best results.
The surgical and follow up process
If the tooth is deeply infected or the structural integrity cannot be restored, extractions are performed. Extractions are preferable to root canals as the latter leaves behind bacteria and the potential for future problems. Extractions are performed with anesthesia to make the patient comfortable. After the tooth is removed, your dentist will clean the area to get rid of any bacteria or damaged tissue. Your dentist will give you instructions on aftercare. Medication may be prescribed to reduce the risk of infection.
