Benefits Of Tooth Extraction
A tooth extraction is not as bad as it sounds. It has many benefits including;
- Prevents decay from spreading to other teeth.
- Stops impacted teeth from causing another dental issue such as decay.
- Prepares your mouth for an orthodontic work.
- Less expensive.
The Tooth Extraction Process
An X-ray of your mouth is first done to determine the best way to remove the tooth. Tooth extraction is done under local anaesthesia. Sedation or general anaesthesia may also be offered depending on the difficulty of the procedure.
A simple extraction is done if the tooth is visible. However, in many cases of impacted teeth, a surgical incision is often needed.
After the extraction, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics for you, depending on the complexity of the procedure and to avoid infection.
Rest assured that at Mayfield Dental Care, the process is 100% safe. Your recovery will be closely monitored by your dentist. Precise and detailed instructions will be given to you so know how to care for your mouth following the procedure. For fast recovery, these instructions must be followed diligently.
Some patients experience pain that lasts one or two days after the procedure. This is completely normal so there’s nothing to worry about.
