Removing a tooth for full-mouth dental implants

When it comes to full-mouth dental restorations, tooth removal may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Removing a tooth is crucial in cases where the tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or compromised beyond repair. Extracting the problematic tooth paves the way for a comprehensive and successful dental implant treatment. Dr. Snapir at Orabell Dental Implants understands the importance of this process and ensures a painless extraction, setting the stage for a beautiful smile transformation.

Possible reasons you may need an extraction:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Irreparable tooth damage
  • Dental trauma or injury
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Preparing for orthodontic treatment
  • Infection or abscess in the tooth
  • Preparation before a full dental restoration
  • Risk of infection spreading to other teeth or gums

Tooth extraction for impacted wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the final teeth to erupt at the back of the mouth. However, due to limited space or misalignment, they often become impacted, unable to fully emerge. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause various complications, including pain, swelling, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. To alleviate these issues and prevent further dental problems, extraction of impacted wisdom teeth is often recommended.

Signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth:

  • Jaw pain or discomfort
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums
  • Difficulty opening the mouth fully
  • Bad breath or unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Persistent headaches
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Crowding or shifting of nearby teeth
  • Recurring infections in the gums or surrounding tissues
  • Development of cysts or tumors near the impacted tooth
  • Pain or discomfort in the ears or throat

The painless procedure for tooth extraction

At Orabell Dental Implants, Dr. Snapir ensures a painless extraction. To provide a non-traumatic experience, local anesthesia with sedation is administered. During the surgery, a small incision is made in the gum line to access the tooth. The tooth is extracted in sections for easier removal. The extraction site is carefully cleaned, and stitches are placed to promote healing. A piece of gauze may be placed over the socket to assist in the formation of a blood clot, which protects the socket during the healing process. The procedure concludes within an hour.

Post-extraction guidelines for optimal recovery:

  • Rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours
  • Follow post-operative instructions provided by your dentist
  • Take prescribed pain medication as needed
  • Avoid using a straw, smoking, and consuming hot, spicy, or hard foods
  • Maintain proper oral hygiene by gently brushing and flossing, avoiding the extraction site
  • Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater solution as directed by your dentist
  • Use a cold compress on the outside of your face to reduce swelling, if necessary
  • Avoid touching the extraction site with your tongue, fingers, or any objects
  • Keep the area clean and free from food debris
  • Attend follow-up appointments with your dentist for evaluation and proper healing assessment

Replacing extracted teeth with dental implants

After tooth extraction, the next step is to consider replacing the missing tooth with a dental implant. Dental implants provide a durable and natural-looking solution for tooth replacement. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. Once the implant integrates with the bone, a custom-made crown or bridge is attached, restoring both the function and aesthetics of the smile. Orabell Dental Implants provides high-quality dental implant solutions to ensure a complete and seamless tooth replacement.
