Tooth Extraction and Minor Surgeries
Tooth or teeth are extracted/removed only when they are so badly decayed or broken that they cannot be repaired. Some people need to have their wisdom teeth removed, usually because they are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, and if there is limited space, they get stuck while erupting or in other words become impacted. These partially erupted wisdom teeth are more prone to gum infections known as pericoronitis, which causes pain and swelling. Also, partially erupted wisdom tooth leads to food lodgement between teeth leading to decay. Sometimes, these wisdom teeth erupt with a tilt towards the cheek which leads to frequent cheek bites while chewing food.

Sometimes, teeth are over-crowded, and some of them may need to be extracted as part of orthodontic (tooth straightening) treatment. Also, gum diseases cancause teeth to become loose in older age, which may mean they need to be extracted.

The procedure for an extraction is usually very simple from a patient’s perspective. We numb your tooth and the surrounding area so you feel no pain. We then hold the tooth firmly and ease it out. There is usually a little bleeding so we place a gauze pack in the tooth socket and ask you to firmly bite down on it for about half an hour, after which it can be thrown away. In the case of wisdom tooth extractions, there is some swelling and discomfort after the procedure for which appropriate medication is prescribed to you. In cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.
