The Wisdom Tooth Removal Process
Some wisdom on removing wisdom teeth
PRIOR TO THE EXTRACTION
Prior to the extraction itself, anesthetic will be administered. The type of anesthesia may vary. With local anesthesia, your gums will be numbed. While you may feel some pressure, you shouldn't feel any pain. With sedation anesthesia, your consciousness is suppressed. You will have little memory of the procedure and you won't feel any pain. Finally, general anesthesia causes you to lose consciousness entirely. You will have no memory of the procedure and it will be painless.
DURING THE EXTRACTION
After the anesthesia is given, for each tooth, an incision is made in the gum tissue to reveal the tooth and bone. Bone that blocks access to the root of the tooth is removed. The tooth is then sometimes divided into pieces to make extraction easier. Now the tooth is removed. The site of the removal is cleaned of any debris, and stitches are sometimes applied. Gauze is placed over the extraction site to suppress bleeding and to help in the formation of a blood clot.

Why Do You Need A Tooth Extraction?
The reasons why you may require this procedure
Our permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, there are times when one or more of those teeth need to be removed, in service of the whole mouth -- and body. Here are some instances of when a tooth extraction may be the best choice: When severe decay causes irreparable damage. If you've allowed decay to spread through the whole tooth and reach the pulp in the center, then the tooth may be infected. At this point, it is typical that a root canal be performed in order to eliminate the infection. However, if the infection has spread far enough that even a root canal won't fix the problem, then it's possible that the whole tooth must be extracted. When periodontitis strikes. Periodontal disease starts with gingivitis and develops from there, further infecting the gums and the bone
supporting the tooth. If it is determined that the disease has spread too far, then tooth extraction may be a viable option. To prevent periodontal disease from occurring, make sure you brush and floss regularly, and see us for a cleaning and examination every six months. When a tooth is impacted. An impacted tooth is blocked from emergence, or has only partially erupted and will not come out any further. Wisdom teeth often fall into this category, which is why wisdom tooth extraction is so popular. There is a possibility that impacted teeth can damage other teeth, and removing them may help lower the risk of overcrowding and infection. If teeth extraction seems like an option for you, consult with us to discuss further. Give us a call at (657) 888-9011 right away.
What is tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction is the process by which a tooth is removed from the mouth -- usually a problematic tooth. If the tooth isn't impacted, then a tool called an elevator is used to loosen the tooth, and forceps to extract it. If the tooth is impacted, a small incision is made in the gums so that the tooth can be removed. In both instances, anesthetic is usually applied.
How much does tooth extraction cost?
The cost of a tooth extraction varies significantly, depending on whether the extraction is simple or surgical, what type of anesthetic is used, and the overall discretion of the dentist. Give us a call to set up a consultation if you'd like to discuss specific figures.
How long is a tooth extraction?
Numbing the tooth takes about 10 to 15 minutes, extracting the tooth takes three to 15 minutes, and preoperative and postoperative duties can take five to 10 minutes. Overall, expect the process to take 20 to 40 minutes.
How long is the recovery from a tooth extraction?
Most patients find that the pain substantially decreases after three days, and is completely gone after about ten days. Of course, this depends on the individual's situation and how well aftercare instructions are followed.
Does tooth extraction hurt?
It doesn't have to. There are a variety of anesthetic options available so that the patient can feel relaxed and at ease throughout the process. They may even sleep through the whole thing!
When should I handle wisdom tooth removal?
You should contact us as soon as your wisdom teeth are bothering you. The sooner you fix the problem, the better; there are fewer complications if your wisdom teeth haven't fully developed yet.
How can I replace a missing tooth?
There are many options for replacing missing teeth. You can opt for a bridge, a dental implant or dentures to fill the gap in your mouth. It all depends on your individual situation. Give us a call to discuss the options further.
What's the best thing to eat or drink after tooth extraction?
One of the easiest things to eat while your mouth is recovering is ice cream because it's cool and soft. In fact, the low temperature of the ice cream may help you reduce any swelling inside your mouth. Additionally, lukewarm or cool soups are good to consume, as well as smoothies.
What foods should I avoid after tooth extraction?
You'll want to avoid all irritation of the gums and mouth, which means avoiding spicy foods. It is also advisable to avoid crunchy, hard foods that require effort to chew, as they may put a strain on your already sore mouth.
