Tooth extraction

Tooth extraction is a treatment performed by dentists or oral surgeons to remove one or more teeth for
various reasons. This process also includes the removal of wisdom teeth especially when they are
asymptomatic or causing problems.
Indications for tooth extraction:

  1. Dental caries. Advanced tooth decay that cannot be treated with a filling or root canal may require tooth
    extraction to prevent the spread of infection.
  2. Gum disease. Severe periodontal disease can lead to pathological mobility of teeth, and in some cases tooth extraction is necessary.
  3. Trauma. Tooth damage that cannot be repaired may require removal.
  4. Wisdom teeth/retained teeth: Lack of space in the jaw can cause teeth to grow crookedly or become
    retained, which can cause pain and discomfort.
    Surgical removal of wisdom teeth.
    Wisdom teeth are the last molars that usually start to appear in late adolescence. Surgical removal of
    wisdom teeth is common when they do not have enough space to grow properly or when they are retained under the gums.
    After tooth extraction, it is important to follow the dentist’s instructions to reduce the risk of
    complications such as infection and bleeding. Regular follow-up visits help ensure that the healing
    process goes as expected.
