At Bite Works Dental Care, we priorities preventative care, but we also frequently pull teeth. By maintaining your dental health in good condition, we are always looking for ways to prevent an extraction. In order to maintain the health and integrity of your teeth, we will regularly clean your teeth, go through a balanced diet with you, and do our best to treat gum disease, cavities, and infections. As your dentist, we will also strive to repair any damaged teeth. This will help you keep your natural teeth for many years to come. Contact us at +923175691709 if you’re in pain or if your tooth needs to be repaired. During your evaluation, we’ll let you know if your tooth can be salvaged or if a tooth extraction is your best bet for ending your agony and stopping the spread of infection. No matter the course of treatment you choose, we will take the necessary precautions to assure your comfort in our dental office so that you will feel at ease throughout the procedure.
The procedure for extracting a tooth
There are numerous approaches we can use if we do need to pull a tooth from you. We will first numb the region around your mouth so that you don’t experience any immediate pain. During the process, you may feel some pressure, but other than that, you should feel at ease and calm. We can use dental instruments to wiggle the tooth and take it out of the socket if it has developed and broken through the gums. Gauze will then be used to halt the bleeding while you recuperate, and the area will be properly cleansed. Oral surgery can be required to remove your tooth if it is affected or if it is still below the surface, as is typical with wisdom teeth. In order to make a flap when performing this operation in our dental clinic, we normally make an incision in the gums. We carefully raise the flap to provide access to the affected tooth. We often have the ability to move the tooth out of the socket with a little wiggling. However, it must first be taken away if there is bone or tissue covering the tooth. We may need to shatter the tooth into many pieces and extract it if it is especially resistant and not moving. The region will be completely cleansed once the tooth has been extracted from the socket, and then the flap will be repositioned and sutured into place. After that, the bleeding is stopped with gauze.
How to take care of your mouth after having a tooth pulled
In order to reduce the recovery time, Bite Works Dental Care performs tooth extractions in the least intrusive way feasible. In order to ensure that the bleeding has properly stopped and that any anesthetic is wearing off, the majority of our patients will rest in the office for around an hour after their procedure. After a tooth extraction, we normally advise having someone pick you up. You’ll want to relax at home, and a sleep is strongly advised. Drink lots of water, but steer clear of anything excessively hot or cold, since this might cause sensitivity during the first few days. For the first few days, we also advise against using a straw since the suction may trigger the afflicted region to begin bleeding. The recovery time will depend on how the treatment was carried out, but in general, the swelling will subside within a few days. In addition to using an ice pack or cold compress for a period of 15 minutes at a time, we advise taking ibuprofen to aid with swelling reduction. You should have soft, high-nutrition meals while you’re recovering. It’s a great method to maintain a healthy diet without having to eat anything to keep your nutrient levels up to drink a smoothie with fruit, yoghurt, and protein powder. Start with soft meals like noodles as you progressively increase your food intake before returning to a full diet. You must maintain your mouth as clean as you can when taking care of it following a tooth extraction. Normal tooth brushing technique is advised while carefully avoiding the surgery site. To lessen the possibility of an infection forming, you can also rinse with water and baking soda or an antimicrobial mouthwash. We might also wish to schedule a follow-up visit with you.
Indications that a tooth extraction may be necessary
At Bite Works Dental Care we provide both emergency assistance and preventative care. Give us a call if you have extreme pain in your tooth or jaw since this might indicate a dental abscess or serious infection. In addition, if you have pain when you bite down or chew, you may have a cavity or an infection. Other symptoms, such as pus or bleeding, contact +923175691709 as soon as possible to make an appointment with our family dentistry practise.
What to know before having your wisdom teeth removed
You might need to have your wisdom teeth removed if you still have them. To find out whether or not you should keep your wisdom teeth, we welcome you to make an appointment with our dental office so that we may inspect your teeth and take X-rays. It depends on how much space you have and if they are growing in straight or affected because not everyone needs to have them out. Additionally, removing any braces you may have had would prevent them from forcing your other teeth forward. With the exception of when and why we carry out the treatment, the removal of wisdom teeth is essentially the same as that of any other tooth. At Smiles Dental Care, we often advise removing wisdom teeth in adolescence. As people get older and have a tooth that needs to be extracted because it has a serious infection or major destruction, general extractions become increasingly prevalent.
