Tooth extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become un-restorable due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache. Consultants here will take all steps necessary to save the tooth. However, in cases where the tooth cannot be saved, you will be advised alternative options which include oral surgery to extract the tooth.
Simple tooth extraction is usually a relatively straightforward dental procedure. Our consultants are very skillful in tooth extractions, and root canal treatments on their patients.There are cases when surgical tooth extractions are required, which involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully. Surgical extractions almost always require an incision. Frequently, the tooth may be split into multiple pieces to facilitate its easy removal.
Following a tooth extraction, bone loss typically occurs in the jaw where the tooth was removed. Dental bone grafting procedures are done to restore your bone to its previous form following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. Bone grafting may also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction.
Restoring and maintaining facial bone structure is important for several reasons. Many dental procedures, such as dental implant placement, require that the bone be as close to its original dimension and position as possible for optimal results. Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscle that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.
