Tooth extraction

Tooth Extraction is the process of removing the teeth that cannot be treated by the dentists after the general medical evaluation of the patient and the control of the oral condition. There can be many different reasons for this situation.

Dentistry practices are based on protecting and trying to save natural teeth until the last moment. For this reason, Tooth Extraction is always considered as a last resort. Tooth extraction is applied if the problems experienced in natural teeth cannot be eliminated with filling, root canal treatment, apical resection or crown applications performed by the dentist.

Tooth Extraction, which many individuals in the society are afraid of, is seen as a last resort in teeth where a positive result cannot be obtained despite all the treatments, and is applied to protect general oral and dental health.

There are many conditions that cause people to have their teeth pulled out. At the beginning of these reasons, depending on the trauma experienced in the teeth, progressive decay that occurs over time can be shown. However, conditions such as advanced gingival problems, damage to supporting tissues, bone loss can also result in tooth extraction.

The main reason for the occurrence of situations resulting in tooth extraction is the lack of regular oral and dental care and the disruption of dental examinations. Paying attention to these issues only allows the prevention of situations that lead to tooth extraction and the improvement of negative situations before they reach advanced stages.

Tooth extraction, which the majority of people are afraid of, offers a safe, comfortable and problem-free healing process if it is performed by specialist dentists in clinical conditions, in accordance with the rules, and then the patient behaves in accordance with the issues specified for him.

In most of the cases, it is natural to feel mild pain for 1 to 2 days after tooth extraction, which is performed using local anesthesia. After tooth extraction, smoking until the wound in the extraction site is closed, contacting the area with the tongue or making a continuous tampon will adversely affect the healing process.

What is Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is the process of removing the untreatable problems that occur in the natural teeth, which enable many functions such as biting, chewing, and speaking, to be performed in a healthy way, from the socket in the jawbone in order not to further endanger the oral and dental health of the person.

Tooth extraction, also called exodontia, is seen as the last option among dentistry treatment methods. Specialist dentists primarily try to repair, restore and save natural teeth. Dentists who can not get positive results despite trying all applications apply to tooth extraction as a last resort.

Teeth that are damaged, infected or have different problems are removed from the mouth by removing the teeth from the jawbone. This treatment is especially needed in people who have problems with their teeth as a result of decay, infection, gum disease or trauma.

Even if it has become a feared practice as a result of false information and negative rumors spread among the public, Tooth Extraction is a safe, comfortable and simple dentistry treatment performed under local anesthesia and where the person does not feel any pain or ache.

Specialist dentists complete the process by separating the tooth from the bone of the tooth in the mouth, called the socket, in the treatment of tooth extraction. As a result of this treatment, general oral and dental health is preserved as the problematic tooth is removed.

Why Is The Tooth Extracted?

Many situations that can be experienced in people's teeth can cause tooth extraction. After the clinical examination, the specialist dentist decides to extract the problem tooth or to treat it with different methods.

Among the situations that result in Tooth Extraction and the issues that require Tooth Extraction;

  • Tooth Trauma or Deep Caries Occurrence: Fractures in teeth deeper than the bone level for different reasons result in Tooth Extraction. Even if root canal treatment is tried first, the probability of success of the treatment decreases as the fracture level gets deeper. If the patient's teeth are broken or rotten, the tooth is tried to be treated with several different methods. However, if there is no response, bridge or root canal treatment is applied to the damaged tooth. If this does not work, the tooth needs to be extracted.
  • Preparing the Patient for Orthodontic Treatment: Orthodontic treatment is needed in case of problems such as crookedness, crookedness, misalignment in the teeth of people. One or more teeth may need to be extracted in order to optimize the person's intraoral tooth alignment. After the extraction of the tooth, the alignment process takes place more healthily after the sufficient area opened.
  • 20-Tooth Extraction: It is aimed to prevent the tooth from damaging the surrounding teeth, jawbone, gingival tissue, nerves or blood vessels in the extraction of wisdom teeth, also referred to as the Impacted Teeth. Impacted teeth can be removed while their roots are not yet formed in case they threaten health in the future.
  • Removal of Milk Teeth: If a primary tooth could not come out in humans or if it did not fall out in a normal time, the underlying permanent tooth may not come. In such a case, the extraction of the primary tooth prevents the need for braces treatment in the future.

In Which Situations Tooth Extraction Is Performed

Today, people may have to have a tooth extraction for different reasons. Among the situations that lead to this practice, some of which are congenital, others are caused by wrong habits and behaviors;

  • When bruises or fractures in the teeth cause material loss that cannot be recovered with other dental treatment methods,
  • In case of advanced loss in the surrounding tissues supporting the tooth as a result of gingival diseases,
  • When space is needed in the mouth for braces application,
  • If impacted, semi-impacted and wisdom teeth cause cavities, pain and inflammation over time,

can be specified.

Before Tooth Extraction

In the examination performed by the specialist dentist before tooth extraction, it is evaluated whether there is an obstacle to the extraction of the patient's tooth. In this process, it will be the best behavior for people with chronic diseases such as heart, blood pressure and diabetes to report their latest status to the dentist.

However, patients using regular medication should share their medication information with the dentist who will perform the tooth extraction. Before tooth extraction, the person's brushing their teeth well and rinsing their mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash will prevent inflammation that may occur during or after tooth extraction.

How Tooth Extraction Is Performed

Tooth Extraction is a treatment method performed in a clinical setting by people who have completed their dentistry education and who are experts in surgical practice. The specialist dentist determines the extraction technique and anesthesia method by checking the condition of the tooth during the examination.

General anesthesia can be used for extraction of impacted teeth, wisdom teeth or problematic teeth with serious infections, which is usually performed under local anesthesia. Thanks to the anesthesia method used, the patient does not feel any pain or ache during tooth extraction.

Tooth Extraction is completed in an average of 10 to 15 minutes. The stages followed during tooth extraction;

  • In the first stage, the dentist cuts the bone tissue.
  • Then he holds the tooth with a special tool called forceps.
  • It displaces the female by moving it right - left - forward - backward.
  • In decayed teeth, it can be easily removed from the jawbone, as the bond between the jawbone and the root of the tooth weakens and they usually begin to swing spontaneously.
  • Broken teeth due to trauma or different reasons can be removed in several parts.

can be specified as.

Tooth Extraction Healing Process

The healing process after tooth extraction is completed in an average of 1 to 2 weeks. In this period, new gum tissue and bone growth occur in the cavity formed as a result of tooth extraction. The wound in the area is closed and a strong structure is formed.

However, it should be known that the cavity formed in the mouth after tooth extraction affects the neighboring works negatively. This gap not only creates functional problems such as negatively affecting chewing, biting and speaking, but also provides an environment for neighboring jobs to be withdrawn by being exposed to different problems.

After tooth extraction, the gap formed in the mouth due to missing teeth or teeth should be closed with different dental treatment methods such as implants, fixed bridges or prosthetic teeth, and the health and general oral condition of other teeth should be protected.

How Long Does Tooth Extraction Take?

As a result of the innovations brought by modern technology to health applications, Tooth Extraction has become a very easy, comfortable and fast treatment today. In order to specify a clear time for tooth extraction, it is necessary to have detailed information about the position and health status of the tooth to be extracted.

Tooth Extraction is completed in an average of 10 to 15 minutes in the vast majority of cases. However, situations such as the position of the tooth to be extracted in the mouth at a difficult angle, the tooth being multi-rooted rather than single-rooted, and the structure classified as impacted tooth - wisdom tooth, cause this period to increase.

Types of Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction is applied in two basic classes as simple and surgeon. Simple Tooth Extraction is a quick and painless extraction of teeth that are relatively weak in root and easily accessible in the mouth, performed under local anesthesia.

Surgical Tooth Extraction is the application in which teeth that are in a more difficult position to reach in the mouth, have not fully erupted, are broken or have infection, are extracted by applying special tools and incisions. Extraction of impacted teeth and wisdom teeth are also accepted in this class.

After Tooth Extraction

In order for the person's health and recovery process to be easy after tooth extraction, the patient should pay attention to the issues specified by the specialist dentist.

Among the situations to be considered after tooth extraction;

  • The patient should not rinse his mouth for the first 30 minutes. Rinsing the mouth prevents the formation of blood clots, which will allow healing after extraction. This causes a delay in wound healing.
  • The tampon placed after tooth extraction should be bitten tightly for 15 to 20 minutes. Constantly spitting to prevent saliva from accumulating in the mouth prevents the formation of blood clots and causes bleeding to continue.
  • Bleeding may continue for 6 to 24 hours in the form of leakage. However, blood can stain saliva. Therefore, do not panic if you think that you are bleeding too much.
  • A certain degree of pain may be felt after tooth extraction. In consultation with the dentist, a pain reliever other than aspirin can be taken.
  • Since the teeth are attached to the jawbone, bone may appear after tooth extraction. This may cause it to be thought that there is a piece of the extracted tooth. Do not touch this area with your tongue or any object. Within a few days, the open bone is covered with your gums.
  • Avoid hot and bitter foods that can cause irritation in the extraction area.
  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol for the first 2 to 3 days after the shooting.
  • Do not drive immediately after tooth extraction.
  • After tooth extraction, put a high pillow under your head and rest.
  • Avoid taking a hot shower for the first 1 to 2 days.
  • Do not eat anything until the numbness in your mouth is gone.
  • Resume normal oral care practices 24 hours after tooth extraction.

Pain After Tooth Extraction

No matter how experienced the dentists are, trauma occurs in the gums and bone tissue in the extraction area during tooth extraction. This situation causes the patient to feel pain after tooth extraction, which can last for 1 to 3 days on average.

Since tooth extraction is performed under local anesthesia, the patient does not feel any pain or ache until the effect of anesthesia wears off. Depending on the location of the extracted tooth and the size of the problem, the pain may feel a little more on the first day. As a result of the use of painkillers prescribed by the specialist dentist, this period is spent with the least feeling of pain.

Bleeding After Tooth Extraction
Regardless of whether it is simple or surgical, a certain amount of bleeding occurs after almost every tooth extraction. This situation, which can continue even if it is at the level of leakage in the first 24 hours, disappears as a result of blood clotting in the region.

In case of rare complications such as bleeding, fever, chills after tooth extraction, it would be best to go to the dentist for a check-up without wasting time.

Swelling After Tooth Extraction
No swelling occurs in the relatively easy Tooth Extraction applications, which are called Simple Tooth Extraction and do not contain any infection, deep decay or fracture.

Depending on the difficulty experienced in the process of infection, deep decay, fracture or the extraction of teeth that are in a difficult position in the mouth, which are called Surgical Tooth Extraction, swelling may occur, which can last for an average of 2 to 3 days.

In order to prevent swelling after tooth extraction, cold application can be applied to the area where the tooth extraction is performed on the first day. In addition, if the behaviors recommended to the patient by the specialist dentist are carefully applied, the probability of swelling decreases and the existing swelling heals rapidly.

Meal After Tooth Extraction
It will be right to consume soft and liquid foods on the first day after tooth extraction. In fact, it is necessary to wait for the drowsiness caused by anesthesia to pass before eating. This may require waiting 2 to 4 hours for a Post Extraction Meal.

It would be a right behavior not to eat hot food for the first few days after tooth extraction. However, by not eating hard, acidic, very hot or cold foods, the post-extraction cavity can be protected.

Inflammation After Tooth Extraction
After every tooth extraction, inflammation does not occur in the extraction area or in the mouth. If the patient has severe pain, high fever, chills, lymph sensitivity after extraction, it is necessary to consult a specialist dentist without losing time, suspecting the formation of inflammation after tooth extraction.
