Do you avoid dental check-up even when you have a toothache? Fear of dental treatments are experienced mostly as childhood traumas and causes dentophobia. Most dental problems can be treated with just an easy filling or root canal treatment. Avoiding dentist visit may result in severe mouth sores and damage dental functions which will worsen the situation.

 

Tooth extraction prevents discomfort, caries and other problems that can affect your bone, gums and neighbouring teeth. Dentists use methods such as local anesthesia and sedation which make tooth extractions painless.

 

The procedure is as follows: First, dentist questions if the patient has any disease or allergies. Then it’s decided whether the tooth needs to be extracted or not. Dentist decides an injection dose and the area surrounding the tooth is numbed. After the numbing injection, tooth is removed from its socket. Patient does not feel pain or sensitivity during the procedure. Dentist makes sure that tooth roots are completely extracted from tooth socket. Then patient rests for a while, the process is that simple.

 

Tooth extraction is not the only solution for damaged teeth. If cavity or damage is not severe, dentists can simply fix it with a filling, inlay/onlay or a dental veneer. However; the most common reason for the need of tooth extraction is irremediable damaged teeth, therefore, you should never postpone your regular dental check-ups in every six months.
