When a tooth extraction takes place, the dentist will remove the tooth from your mouth along with it’s root canal. This is known as the procedure of tooth extraction. Tooth extraction, or dental extractions, can be performed when a tooth is cracked or broken and cannot be saved. Dental extractions can also be required when there has been extensive tooth decay, which is not possible to cure and the teeth have fallen out because of the infection.
An extraction dentaire involves the surgical removal of teeth, including the underlying roots, from your mouth. Extractions are sometimes performed for various reasons, but most frequently to eliminate teeth that have become severely infected and cannot be saved. Sometimes, the dentist may decide to pull out your tooth so that the infection in your tooth cavity will not spread, especially if your tooth is located in your upper jaw. Another reason for a tooth pulling may be if your dentist thinks that your heart valves are starting to collapse and if the infection in your heart valves could spread into your bloodstream.
Most people know that tooth extraction is necessary when tooth abscesses are detected, and there is thus an immediate need for treatment. However, some people do not understand the complications that can arise from an abscess, especially if it is not treated in a timely manner. An abscess can become an extremely painful disease if not treated in a timely fashion, which is why it is important that you contact your dentist as soon as you notice signs of any gum issues or periodontal disease.
One of the complications that can arise from a tooth extraction is a dry socket. This complication occurs when the bone that is involved in your tooth socket has died. The bone may be completely alive, yet it cannot support the tooth due to the lack of adequate blood supply. The patient will experience extreme pain around the affected area and will have difficulty eating, swallowing and even speaking.
Your dentist will most likely recommend periodontal disease surgery in order to save the tooth and also to reduce any damage to the bones around the socket. This is also commonly referred to as “root canal surgery.” However, this procedure can cause scarring, infection and damage to nearby tissue, if not performed properly. You may also need to have several root canals performed in order to treat all of the symptoms associated with periodontal disease. If you notice any type of bleeding, swelling, redness or tenderness around your mouth or teeth, you should immediately talk with your dentist in order to schedule an appointment to have your teeth pulled and inspected.
