EXTRACTIONS AND ORAL SURGERY
WHEN ARE TEETH EXTRACTED?
Keeping your teeth intact is the best and preferred dental option. But at times, the condition of the tooth is such that it can not be saved. Your teeth, gums will be checked thoroughly before deciding to remove the tooth. It is best to preserve your teeth, however, if it cannot be avoided the tooth is extracted.
IS IT PAINFUL?
No, it is made sure that the area where the tooth is to be extracted is completely numb before extracting the tooth.
IS IT IMPORTANT TO REPLACE THE EXTRACTED TEETH?
Yes, it is important to replace the tooth/teeth after the wound of extracted tooth is healed.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DO NOT REPLACE THE MISSING TEETH?
When teeth are missing, facial muscles can sag over time. It makes it difficult to eat, chew, and speak properly with the missing teeth. Not replacing missing teeth leads to sagging of facial muscles, problems with digestion due to inability to chew food properly.
DO WISDOM TEETH ALWAYS NEED TO BE EXTRACTED?
Sometimes there may not be room in your mouth for your wisdom teeth. In such cases, it often tilts in an awkward position, may get stuck under the adjacent teeth, cause food lodgment and consequently caries in the same or adjacent teeth. In such cases, we advise an X-ray to verify its position, its relation with the surrounding vital structures and then decide upon its removal.
