Tooth extraction is typically the final resort in dental treatment when there is poor prognosis or in some cases for correction of malocclusion. Many patients fear the process of extraction and associate it with extreme pain and discomfort. However, the right technique and instruments make the procedure relatively painless and easy.

There are a few reasons why we might need to remove a tooth:
There are two types of tooth extraction:

Simple Extractions

Surgical Extractions

Surgical extractions are performed when teeth are not easy to remove by normal method and might need incision, cutting and suturing. For instance, Wisdom teeth mostly require surgical intervention as in most cases they are either partially erupted or impacted.

How Is It Done?

Your dental specialist will decide the line of anaesthesia whether local anaesthesia /intravenous sedation. The extraction is performed with proper armamentarium and requires incision, cutting and suturing.

What Happens?

The dentist will discuss the procedure with patient before the surgery. Surgical extractions involve making an incision on the gums to access the tooth. Some bone may also be removed during the procedure. The process then goes ahead in the same way as a simple extraction but suturing may be needed.

Recuperation time is generally longer than a single extraction. You can expect some swelling and will likely need rest for at least 24 hours. The swelling resorbs within a week under proper medication and precautions.
