Whenever you visit MS Galiza Dental Clinic with any kind of tooth problem, our dentists do everything in their power to save the tooth from extraction. Tooth extraction is only done when there is no other way to save the tooth. There could be several reasons for a tooth extraction namely a traumatic injury, tooth infection, tooth damage, or tooth decay over time. Our skilled oral surgeons in Calgary and the surrounding areas can extract a tooth gently and with precision.
You may need a tooth extraction procedure if you are suffering from any of the below reasons:
Injury or trauma to teeth
Gum disease like gingivitis
Impacted wisdom teeth
In some cases, tooth extraction can cause problems related to your chewing ability, jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, we discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
At the time of extraction, the doctor will numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic so that the process is pain-free. A lot of pressure is felt in the mouth during the extraction process. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth to widen the socket for removal. If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction, inform your surgeon immediately. Some patients may experience some complications, such as a dry socket, after the extraction procedure. You can reduce the chances of getting dry socket by avoiding tough foods, drinking out of a cup without using a straw and using warm salt water to rinse your mouth.
