Simple tooth extraction
Simple tooth extraction occurs when a tooth with one root is extracted, and when the removal will not require any surgical interventions. Before any such procedure, our dentist will first examine the tooth and advise you if saving it with alternative treatment is possible. If the tooth cannot be saved, and you have been made aware of all of your options, the extraction will proceed.
To carry out the removal, the dentist will first apply local sedation. Do not be afraid – we will always ensure that you feel nothing before proceeding.
To remove the tooth, the dentist will then apply some pressure releasing it from the bone before pulling it out. Once the tooth is released, the dentist will remove it from its place, ensuring there are no remains and the entire root has been pulled out. Lastly, the dentist will clean the area and stop the bleeding.
There’s no medication required after an emergency tooth extraction unless there’s a bacterial infection and an abscess has been formed. If this the case, the dentist will advise you on the most suitable therapy based on your individual needs.
Emergency surgical tooth extraction
Surgical tooth extraction is typically needed on the molars, or if you’re suffering from impacted teeth. The procedure includes a minor cut on the gums, which allows the dentist to safely remove all roots and ensure there are no tooth remains inside the bone.
An emergency tooth extraction with surgical intervention is rare. Typically, the dentist will try to soothe the pain (if you’re experiencing any) and prepare for surgical removal by taking the necessary X-rays and planning the procedure carefully.
How to prepare for a surgical emergency tooth extraction?
If you’ve booked an emergency appointment and you are sure that an extraction will be needed, we suggest eating before the procedure, so you can avoid chewing for as long as possible after it. Chew on the opposite side of the mouth and brush your teeth as soon as you’re done to remove any bacteria which may be left in your mouth after eating.
Where possible, do not take any medications before the surgical removal. If you have to take any, inform your dentist prior to the procedure (especially if taking blood-thinning medication).
