Tooth extraction process

At first you must understand that is the objective of the entire dental industry to attempt all measures to maintain all of your natural teeth. So, a tooth extraction is only necessary after other procedures have been exhausted. The extraction may be the result of an unfortunate accident in which the broken tooth cannot accept a crown. It may be the result of excessive decay such that the tooth cannot be saved. The tooth might be contributing to gum disease and it is to your benefit to have it removed. Finally, it might be an unnecessary wisdom tooth that is causing crowding in your mouth. The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is the best option available and best Emergency Dental  Extraction Expert  dentist near you.

The Two Different Tooth Extraction Procedures

The cost for a tooth extraction has a very wide range due to the difference in extraction procedures. You may have an easily accessible broken front tooth which will need some local anesthetic to numb the area and then it will simply be pulled with a plier like instrument called forceps. The second method is a surgical extraction, used for situations like impacted wisdom teeth. This may require a deeper sedation to mitigate any discomfort and anxiety. Then a surgical incision exposes the impacted tooth which then will be removed. If the tooth has begun to grow to the jawbone there might be some additional complications. Once the tooth is removed the site needs to be closed with sutures.

The tooth’s location in your mouth and the time spent to extract that tooth plays a second role. Front versus back and the number of roots involved can make a difference in the time involved. As just mentioned, the number of roots changes the complexity of any extraction. One versus four make a difference in the procedure as well as the amount of anesthesia. 

Now that you have identified the many different types of tooth extraction procedures you can see that the healing process will have variables as well. You will be asked to be diligent about your oral hygiene to give the site a chance to heal properly. The smaller hole from a front tooth extraction will take less time to heal than the site of a surgical extraction of wisdom teeth where sutures were needed.
