Undergoing a tooth extraction procedure is like a coming of age ritual. All individuals will eventually need to sit on the dental chair to have their teeth removed to improve the condition of their oral and dental health.
Just White Dental Clinic understands the complexity and sensitivity of such a procedure, and that is why our experienced dentists in Dubai always make it a point to conduct tooth removal with utmost care, precision, and concern for the patient’s well-being.
Reasons to Extract Teeth
Removing permanent wisdom teeth is necessitated when a tooth is badly damaged or decayed, making it impossible to be salvaged. In cases like these, the affected tooth usually causes severe pain and removing it is the only way to alleviate a patient’s discomfort.
Humans are expected to form 32 teeth, but the human mouth cannot always fit all these in. In most cases, wisdom teeth – the last ones to appear – tend to grow at an awkward angle and thus damage the adjacent teeth. To improve alignment and minimize damage, wisdom tooth extraction is commonly performed.
Infection and periodontitis are also common reasons for a dentist to prescribe extraction.
What to Expect from the Procedure
A dental check-up is performed to help our dentists determine the severity of a patient’s condition and prescribe if removing the affected tooth is the only way. As much as possible, we try to save our patients’ permanent teeth.
However, if removal is the best option, our dentists might need to have a dental X-ray done to give them a better picture of the patient’s dental structure. This enables them to form a concrete and accurate plan to remove the affected tooth as smoothly and painlessly possible.
The severity of the case will also indicate the kind and level of anesthesia a dentist will use. Local anesthesia is commonly preferred for simple extractions, while general anesthetic may be used if more teeth are involved.
