The Tooth Extraction Process
To ensure safety, the tooth extraction process follows a careful step-by-step procedure. To determine the best way to extract the tooth, an X-ray of your mouth is first taken. The operation itself is done with local anaesthesia. In some cases, sedation or general anaesthesia are also used depending on the difficulty of the procedure.
If the tooth is visible, a simple extraction is done. Most cases of impacted require a surgical incision.
Antibiotics are prescribed after the extraction depending on the complexity of the treament and the need to avoid infection. Some patients experience pain that lasts one or two days after the procedure. This is completely normal so there’s nothing to worry about.
Your dentist will tell you the do’s and don’ts after the procedure to ensure fast recovery and avoid complications. Your dentist will closely monitor your recovery. A follow up appointment may be prescribed to check your status.
