You may need your teeth to be pulled out for a number of reasons, including the following.
- Some of your teeth are seriously decayed
- Some of them may have complicated periodontal disease
- Some may be severely damaged and cannot be repaired
- Some may not be positioned correctly in the mouth, for example, impacted teeth
- When preparing for orthodontic treatment
Before your tooth is extracted, Dr. Dhadli will discuss the reasons with you before giving you her recommendation. To prevent these problems, Dr. Dhadli often discusses with patients the substitutes to tooth removal and replacement of the removed tooth.
The Extraction Process
Before the removal process is started, Dr. Dhadli will numb the region around the tooth using a local anesthetic. When the removal is taking place, you will experience a lot of pressure. This is due to the process of moving the tooth from side to side so that the size of the socket can be broadened for extraction.
Since the local anesthetic will induce the absence of sensation during the extraction process, you will experience the pressure without feeling any pain. You will feel the pressure because the nerves that transmit pressure will still be working.
Sectioning a Tooth
This involves cutting the tooth into various sections and then taking out every section one after the other. Sectioning is essential when a tooth is tightly fastened in its socket or the root is bent and the socket is not able to spread out well to be extracted.
