Reduce the Risk of Complications with Surgical Extraction Techniques to Extract a Tooth
There can be several reasons why a dentist may determine that you need a Surgical Extraction. In some cases the tooth may be covered by bone structure or gum tissue which makes it difficult for the dentist to be able to see. You could also have a damaged or broken tooth which makes it impossible to remove without surgery.
Without surgery to extract the tooth, other neighboring teeth and/or tissue could become damaged and the end results could be impossible to predict.
Tooth sectioning can help reduce the level of difficulty it would be to remove a tooth. There are many different things that could prove to be challenging for a dentist to remove your tooth including the way it’s positioned and the shape of the root.
By separating the tooth into parts, a dentist can then focus on one part of the tooth and work on that part to ensure that you have a safe surgical removal of your tooth.
How Teeth Are Divided
The objective is to divide the tooth into smaller sections that will make it easier to be removed. However, each one still needs to large enough to be operatedeasily.
Depending on each patient’s unique situation, the dentist will work closely with both the patient and his/her staff to ensure that the proper Surgical Extraction techniques are performed in order to have the tooth removed safely.
How is a Tooth Sectioned?
Typically a tooth is sectioned by using a dental hand piece or drill.The process includes numerous amounts of saline solution and water so that there is little bone traumatising which could be created from the drilling.
The sections of the tooth would be removed the same way as a normal tooth extraction would with the keystone parts of the tooth removed first.
How Much Pain Should You Expect?
You should not experience much pain or discomfort when you are having a tooth extracted surgically.
The dentist will have the area numbed before he/she begins to drill so the only thing you should feel during the process is the drilling, but absolutely no pain.
Don’t Fear Getting Your Tooth Extracted Surgically
In the situation in which your dentist suggests performing a tooth extraction surgically, usually it would be because it’s the safest, quickest, and best way to ensure that there will be little to no trauma to the bone structure beneath the tooth.
This is not only positive for the patient’s healing process, but also in the event that the patient would want to get a tooth implant in the future.
