All people tend to communicate. A beautiful smile of a healthy person favours cooperation and, hence, success. Necessary measures include timely prevention, treatment and extraction of teeth.
A visit to our dental clinic near Tulskaya subway station in the center of Moscow will allow you to avoid the pain when extracting the tooth and not to regret about the money and missed opportunities.
When do we need to extract a tooth?
The list of doctor prescriptions for tooth extraction is as follows:
- the jaws infected with osteomyelitis (an emergency removal is a necessary procedure);
- destructive changes of most part of the enamel (dental caries);
- teeth with odontogenic jaw: periostitis, sinusitis, lymphadenitis, phlegmons;
- incorrect position of tooth which cannot be fixed in a sparing way (removal of wisdom teeth which “take the place” of other teeth);
- fractured teeth caused by injury that interfere normal food intake, damage tongue and mucous membranes;
- periodontitis of the dental cavity of the second and subsequent stages;
- in case of abnormal growth of roots of the teeth and their displacement relative to the initial position;
- during the preparation of the oral cavity for orthodontic manipulation: bite correction, teeth straightening.
Painless tooth extraction
Tooth extraction procedure consists of two parts: the injection of the anesthetic solution and the extraction of a damaged part: crown, root, nerve. Removal of wisdom teeth is no different.
The sequence of specialist’s actions is as follows
- After the examination, anamnesis and X-ray the surgeon confirms the need to extract the tooth.
- Depending on the severity of the disease and the patient’s condition, a specialist chooses either general or local anesthesia, selects the appropriate medication.
- Before the injection of the medication, a part of the gum which has to lose sensitivity is being carefully swabbed by the numbing gel.
- Using a syringe the surgeon injects the anesthetic solution into the gum and then removes the tooth.
- Sometimes after the extraction the blood might flow from the socket. To stop the bleeding the dentist places a tampon on the wound.
Extraction of fractured teeth
The extraction of a fractured tooth is a more complicated procedure. To extract the root the dental clinics use special forceps with angled blades to capture the top and bottom of the tooth. During examination in an empty socket you can see ligament holding the tooth in place, part of the gums and the root.
The dentist gently pulls aside everything except the root. The specialist operates using double ended forceps which grips the visible part of the tooth and a part of the root under the gum. After the dentist makes sure the capture is reliable, the damaged root is being removed.
How much will it cost to extract damaged tooth?
The extraction techniques include simple and surgical tooth extraction from sockets. If oral cavity is treated carefully the extraction is usually painless. The tooth partially (or fully) protruding above the surface of the gum can be easily grabbed and pulled out.
The cost of tooth extraction is dependent on the level of the tooth damage and the general state of the organism. If the damaged tooth firmly sits in its socket, the dentist looses it with circular motions and then safely extracts it.
In severe cases, when you need to extract a curved tooth with cracks or chips, it is extracted in fragments.
When it is not recommended to extract the tooth?
The list of the situations when the extraction is prohibited includes:
- cardiovascular diseases in the acute stage: bacterial endocarditis, myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, hypertensive crisis, expressed violation of heart rate rhythm and tempo;
- acute stage of blood disorders: agranulocytosis, leukemia, hemolytic anemia, radiation sickness;
- implementation of prescribed radiation treatments (in case of detection of tumors in the jaw);
- purulent-inflammatory diseases of the oral cavity and adjacent organs: gingivitis, stomatitis, epiglottitis, erysipelas and cellulitis, tongue abscesses;
- acute respiratory infections: hepatitis A, SARS, influenza, sore throat, diphtheria;
- kidney disease in acute condition: nephrosis, chronic renal failure, diffuse glomerulonephritis, hemorrhagic diathesis;
- treatment of diseases which require anticoagulants prescribed by doctors;
- neurological diseases: cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, encephalitis, epilepsy, coma conditions due to traumatic brain injury;
- psychological disorders in the acute stage: neuroses, depression, traumatic brain injury.
For women there are additional prescriptions not to attend dental clinic: the menstrual period, with a margin of two days before and after the cycle. Tooth extraction cannot be performed during pregnancy: in the early stages (up to the third month )and in the prenatal period (more than 7 months).
What happens after the extraction?
Upon successful completion of the operation the pain disappears within a few hours. The main thing is to comply with the recommendations of a doctor. If the procedure is successful the dentist allows eating and drinking after 2-3 hours.
Complicated tooth extraction requires more time. This refers to the displacement, alveolitis, jaw injury. The treatment is: antibiotics, special diet, medications to restore immunity.
