The procedure involving removal of tooth from the oral cavity is termed as dental extraction. Tooth extractions are required in cases like impacted wisdom teeth, severely damaged or fractured teeth, grossly decayed teeth, mobile teeth due to severe gum diseases, any improperly placed tooth that cannot be corrected or as a part of orthodontic treatment to create space for alignment of other teeth.
Sometimes, for the final diagnosis, 3D X-ray analysis is done in order to prevent any injury to the adjacent nerves and structures. Moreover, the complexity of tooth removal is determined by its position in the oral cavity. All the dental extractions, irrespective of the tooth position are performed very gently and precisely under anesthesia to ensure our patients are pain free and comfortable throughout the process.
Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Removal And Their Answers
How common is tooth extraction?
Despite the reduction in worldwide prevalence of dental caries, it is still the most common reason for extraction of (non-third molar) teeth, accounting for up to two thirds of extractions.

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
Though aftercare may differ based on the type of extraction and location of your tooth, you can usually expect to heal in a matter of 7 to 10 days. It’s important to do what you can to keep the blood clot in place in the tooth socket. Dislodging it can cause what’s called dry socket, which can be painful and may take longer than expected time to recover from pain after tooth extraction.
How is a broken tooth removed?
When you undergo a tooth extraction procedure, your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic. You may also receive an anti-anxiety medication or an intravenous sedative. If the dental extraction involves an impacted tooth, the tooth may be broken into pieces before it is removed and a gutter is made in bone to remove it.
Can I go to work after a tooth is pulled out by dentist?
Unless the patient develops post-operative complications, most people can return to work (sedentary jobs) or school within 48 hours of the extraction. Dry sockets and infection are the most common issues that patients encounter after having their wisdom teeth removed and require more rest than expected.
Is it a good idea to refuse to remove a tooth?
If you’re tempted to refuse a tooth extraction procedure, going against your dentist’s recommendation, we encourage you to reconsider. Your refusal could have serious and painful consequences. Your damaged tooth may cause an abscess, which is a swollen area of body tissue containing pus and many other complications.
When should a tooth be removed?
The most common indication for tooth removal is when a tooth is impacted, which stops it from growing normally in place. This is often why many dentists recommend wisdom teeth removal. Another is the need to make room in the mouth for proper tooth alignment. And one more is when teeth are badly damaged and impossible to repair.
Is pulling a tooth dangerous?
Although having a tooth pulled is usually very safe, the procedure can allow harmful bacteria into the bloodstream. Gum tissue is also at risk of infection. If you have a condition that puts you at high risk for developing a severe infection, you may need to take antibiotics before and after the extraction.
Does removing a tooth damage the nerve?
The typical surgical option is a full extraction of the tooth (or teeth), but may also be a coronectomy in which the crown of the tooth is removed but the roots are left in place. A coronectomy is often recommended when the tooth’s roots are close to important nerves, to avoid nerve damage.
Will a tooth root come out on its own?
Eventually, a dead tooth will loosen and fall out on its own. However, this does not mean that you should wait for this to happen. The process is painful, and serious complications can arise such as infection entering the bloodstream. Additionally, a tooth may fall out but leave a root in the gums.
Do you need stitches after tooth extraction?
After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. Some stitches dissolve over time and some have to be removed after a few days. Your dentist will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding.
