Your dentist may determine that you need a tooth extraction for various reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to issues related to your chewing ability, your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which may have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications Dr.Nandini will discuss alternatives to extractions, as well as replacement options of the extracted tooth.
WHAT TO EXPECT??
At the time of the extraction the doctor will numb your tooth, jawbone, and gums that surround the area with a local anaesthetic.
During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth to widen the socket for removal.
You feel the pressure without pain as the anaesthetic has numbed the nerves, stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.
Your teeth is then gently eased out of the socket,or surgically removed with specialized instuments.
Dr. Nandini would have explained your procedure in detail prior to performing it.
