Your smile deserves the best, and the best is at keeping your teeth healthy.
If your tooth is badly decayed, it cannot be saved. Your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction. It is a common surgical procedure.
Here we are going to provide some information about how tooth extraction will happen and what kind of action we need to take after taking out the tooth, to prevent bleeding, swelling, and tooth pain.
Extracting a tooth can be one of the most complicated and unpredictable parts of the dental practice especially if the coronal part of the tooth has fractured off in the case of tooth decay or internal resorption.
Here is what we mentioned about an easy and predictable way to extract those teeth roots without the need to remove the facial or lingual bone.
Before leaving the dentist’s office, a gauze pack may be applied. The extraction site to reduce bleeding. Leave the gauze in your mouth for about 30 to 45 minutes after that. Remove the gauze and apply fresh damp gauze to the area. If you have nausea or vomiting or notice heavier bleeding, contact your dentist immediately.
Continue to floss and brush your teeth twice daily. But avoid the teeth next to the healing socket gently. Rinse your mouth but avoid mouthwash for the first few days. If you follow these simple guidelines your mouth should be back to normal.

Tooth Extraction

If you need both orthodontics and dental implants, it is usually recommended that braces be placed first. Because once an implant is placed, it can no longer move like a normal tooth. The implant is fixed to the jaw and there is no ligament that moves the tooth

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt. Within the mound, when they align properly and gum tissue is healthy. Wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways partially emerge from the gum and, even remain trapped beneath. The gum and bone impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone, as they attempt to find a pathway. That will allow them to erupt successfully. These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems when they have partially erupted. The opening around the tooth, allowing bacteria to grow and, will eventually cause infection the resulting swelling stiffness pain and, illness. The pressure from the erupting of a wisdom tooth may move other teeth and disrupt the orthodontic or natural. Alignment of the teeth removal of the offending impacted tooth or teeth usually resolves these problems early. Removal is recommended to avoid future problems and decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure. The first step of third molar surgery or wisdom tooth extraction is uncovering it and sectioning the tooth for easy removal. The surgical site will then be sealed with sutures to promote better healing.

After tooth extraction, continue:

  • Floss
  • Brush
  • Avoid healing socket
  • Gently rinse mouth

Why Does Dentist Recommend Tooth Extraction?

There are many different reasons as to why your dentist may recommend extraction of your perm in teeth. What I am writing about is by no means a recommendation.

It is just explaining why your orthodontist sometimes is recommended extractions of permanent teeth. 

Tooth Extraction

The Five Most Reasons Why Orthodontists Recommend Tooth Extraction

  • Your orthodontist may recommend tooth extraction of Perma teeth is simple. Because there is not enough space. This is when you have teeth that are just too big for your jaws, meaning that you have big teeth and small jaws. A lot of times you can see this in your mouth. When you start having crowding amongst all the teeth, certain teeth may not be able to fit into the arch and you might start seeing some teeth overlap with one another. this is one indication for when your dentist may recommend extraction of permanent teeth simply. Because there’s not enough room to align all of the teeth in Orthodox.
    There are three primary ways we can make space if we have overcrowded teeth.
    One is by expanding the upper jaw by using an expander. Sometimes though you might be too old For this or you simply may not be able to expand the arches enough to accommodate for all the teeth.
    another way we can make space is by profiling the teeth which means leaning the teeth forward to make it. There’s more room to align the remaining teeth but in certain cases, this may not be ideal.
    There’s more room to align the remaining teeth but in certain cases, this may not be ideal. Because it might make it difficult for your lips to close and, this also may be unstable. So that you might have a higher chance of relapse.
    the third way we can make space is by making room by either one thinning the teeth or by two removals of teeth. When we have so much crowding that these three techniques aren’t possible to accommodate the space necessary, your orthodontist may recommend tooth extraction of your permanent. Teeth to make enough room to line up the remaining teeth.
  • The second reason why an orthodontist may recommend extractions is due to protrusion is the fact that your lower and upper teeth lean too far forward and make it so that your lips look too full and you can’t close your lips fully. This can be seen in certain patients when they close their lips. There may be straining of the chin. Because the muscles are trying to close over the lips to create a seal so that you can breathe through your nose, which is the natural way we should be breathing so in cases. When we’re extracting teeth for protrusion, we can change your profile by bringing your teeth back. But this would be an ideal change in your profile the goal when we extract in protrusion is to retract your teeth backwards so that your teeth are more upright in the bone which is one more stable and to allows for the lips which are being supported by the teeth to also come back to a more natural position.
  • Third reason why your orthodontist may recommend extraction of Perma teeth is: Due to your midlines being off a lot of the time if you lose a baby tooth too early, all the teeth will start shifting over to that side which will cause a discrepancy in your midlines with your face. The reason we would use extractions, in this case, would be to make space on the other side so that we could shift all your teeth over so that your dental midlines can be on with your facial midlines a fourth.
  • The fourth reason why we would recommend extraction of permanent teeth is sometimes you have a jaw discrepancy or an asymmetry. This is when you have an overbite or what is properly termed an overjet or, your upper teeth are too far forward to your lower teeth or an underbite where your lower teeth are too far forward to your upper teeth. You have a severe overbite that isn’t severe enough to require surgery and, you can camouflage this by using orthodontics and extractions. Your orthodontist may recommend extraction of two teeth on the top to bring the upper front teeth backwards so that you don’t have as large of an overjet. A similar thing can also be done on the lower. You have an underbite on the lower. Your orthodontist recommends extraction of some teeth on the bottom to make space to bring your lower front teeth backwards. So that you no longer have an underbite. Now, this may not be possible in all scenarios in certain cases orthodontics alone is not enough to camouflage for a skeletal discrepancy so in certain cases, you may need jaw surgery.
  • The fifth reason orthodontist may recommend extractions is:
    If you have something called impactions is when you have permanent teeth that are stuck in the bone that isn’t coming in the most common teeth that are impacted or your wisdom teeth are your third molars which are the farthest teeth back in your mouth. A lot of the time there simply is just not enough room for these teeth. If your wisdom teeth aren’t packed your orthodontist may recommend these teeth are extracted. They don’t interfere with your permanent teeth that I have been lined up throughout treatment in certain cases. You may have teeth that are impacted towards the front like your canines. in cases like this, it’s very case-specific sometimes we may need to extract well, whereas in other times we might not have to. But the most commonly extracted teeth. Because of impactions are your wisdom teeth or your third molars. A lot of the times DR. Laleh gets asked will extractions change my profile? That depends on the reason why dentists are extracting. If we’re extracting because of severe crowding the answer is usually no. Because what’s gonna happen is there’s so much crowding that by simply removing those two teeth, we just have enough room to line up the teeth where they wanted to be does that make sense? Let’s imagine that we have only so much room for all the teeth to be lined up and two teeth are blocked outright. If we were to extract and bring those two blocked-out teeth into the dental arch the form of the arch didn’t change at all.

We just made enough room so that your permanent teeth would come. Your lips will be in the same position as they started and, there would be no change on your profile. We’re extracting for reasons of protrusion or big overbites in those cases yes your profile will be changed. But for the better, because patients that are very producing profiles have very full lips and are unable to close their lips around the teeth so when we extract in those cases and we bring your front teeth backwards to a more stable position and you’ll have a more favourable profile. So when we extract orthodontics a lot of the time we do it to improve your profile not to make things worse. This is a conversation you should be having with your dentist.

    Thanks for sharing these reasons.

    Removing the teeth before symptoms occur can prevent or reduce future problems. Dental X-rays can help your dentist find problems or help show if your teeth are likely to cause problems in the future.
