Why is a Tooth Extraction Needed?

Dental extractions, molar removal, or a tooth removal, may be required for various reasons, including misaligned, decayed, or damaged teeth. Misalignment can get in the way of other teeth that are growing in. Or, it’s possible that an orthodontist may recommend extraction to create space for proper alignment treatment.

This collaborative effort between an orthodontist and a dentist involves removing misaligned teeth to optimize overall results.

Another common reason people need tooth extraction is that teeth are decayed or severely damaged. For example, if dental appointments are neglected and tooth decay becomes severe, then it can lead to irreversible damage, which means that extraction might be the only last resort treatment available.

What to Expect During a Tooth Extraction

Advancements in medicine and technology have made tooth extractions more comfortable than ever before. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area, then the dentist will proceed with the tooth extraction. When the teeth are impacted, sedation might be necessary to ensure you are comfortable since it’s a more invasive treatment.

Following tooth extraction, it’s normal to have some bleeding from the socket. But the area will form a clot, which is crucial for the healing process. Make sure to follow all post-treatment instructions to protect the clot and speed up your recovery.

Why is my dentist recommending a tooth extraction?

The most common reason a tooth extraction might be necessary is severe tooth decay, trauma, or infection. Sometimes, tooth extraction is recommended for preventive reasons, such as removing impacted wisdom teeth that could cause complications in the future. Or, if the teeth are overcrowded, extraction might be recommended to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

Is an emergency dental extraction necessary?

This treatment will only be recommended if there are no other effective treatment options to save the tooth. Our goal is to preserve the original tooth whenever possible. There are times when tooth extraction can be avoided by using other treatments, such as a root canal and/or crown. But if the infection or trauma has damaged the tooth severely, then extraction might be the best course of action to prevent further complications.

What is the difference between a routine extraction and an emergency tooth removal?

Normal extractions are planned in advance and performed during regular office hours. They are not urgent treatments, so you have some flexibility with the timing of the appointment. On the other hand, an emergency extraction happens because you are in severe pain or have a serious infection or trauma. Sometimes, these emergency appointments happen outside of our regular office hours, such as during the evening or on a weekend. Immediate treatment is essential to avoid additional problems.

What will happen during my tooth extraction appointment?

When the dentist has determined that the tooth needs to be removed and you agree to move forward with the treatment, then the first step is to numb the area using local anesthetic. Next, the dentist will loosen the tooth and pull it out of the socket. If the tooth is impacted, then it’s sometimes necessary to remove the tooth in pieces. After the tooth is out, you will bite down on gauze to control the bleeding. Follow all recovery recommendations from the dental staff to speed up your healing.

Is it painful to have a tooth removed?

Since your mouth is numb, you shouldn’t experience any pain during the appointment. Many patients describe it as “pressure” as the tooth is being pulled out. If you are experiencing pain, then let the dentist know right away.
