Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.
If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
To prevent potential future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't currently causing problems.
We Mutth's will carry out the examination of your teeth and take the details about your past dental or medical history. You will need to disclose to the dentist if you have any known medical allergies or if you are taking any current medication (eg. blood thinners) or treatment. An X-ray will assist in thorough examination of the tooth condition. Once the checkup is done, they will give you an injection i.e local anesthesia (lignocaine) to numb the affected tooth and surrounding area. According to the tooth condition, there are two types of extraction that can be performed
Most simple extractions can be done using just a local anaesthetic injection (a local anesthetic) in the majority of clinical cases. For a surgical extraction, you will receive a local anesthetic, and additional anesthesia through a vein (intravenous), if required. Some patients with specific medical background and history — may require general anesthesia. During a tooth extraction, you experience pressure, but no pain as such. If you feel any pain or pinching, tell your dentist as it can indicate that anaesthesia has not been effective or administered properly.
One must inform their dentist about their past and present medical history, any immune system complications, ongoing medications and supplements. Conditions that will need to be carefully considered before extraction include Hypertension, Diabetes, Anticoagulant Use, Bleeding problems, Osteoporosis, Bisphosphonate Use, Birth Control Pills etc.
