Tooth Extractions

Dental extraction, also known as tooth extraction, is a dental procedure performed to remove a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Tooth extractions are commonly performed for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, overcrowding, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.


There may be a lot of queries in your mind, we have tried to answer quite a few of them, below:

  • Why is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

    The need for tooth extraction often arises from advanced tooth decay or infection. Failing to address the issue promptly may result in the infection spreading to neighboring teeth. Tooth extraction becomes essential in cases where a tooth weakens due to gum disease or sustains significant damage, such as breakage or severe fracturing.

    Another common reason for tooth extraction is the prevention of wisdom tooth impaction. Wisdom teeth typically emerge in the late teens or early 20s. When they only partially erupt, known as impaction, it can lead to painful infection, damage to adjacent teeth, and misalignment. Removing these teeth before their eruption safeguards the stability and aesthetic of your smile.

  • What to Expect Post-Extraction?

    Following the tooth extraction, the extraction site will be closed. If sedation was utilized during the procedure, a friend or family member will need to accompany you home. In the subsequent days, it is advisable to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Using straws should be avoided, and a soft-food diet is recommended. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to remove sutures and ensure proper healing.

  • Can I Leave the Space Empty?

    Leaving a gap in your teeth may impact speech, eating, and potentially lead to other dental issues, as your teeth are designed to function harmoniously. Moreover, missing teeth can alter the shape of your face, causing shifts in your mouth over time.
