Tooth Extraction Abroad

Treatment Description

jaw surgery abroadWhen tooth extraction is required?

When a tooth has been damaged by decay or broken it can be fixed with a filling, crown or other treatment. However, if there?s too much damage that the tooth cannot be repaired it needs to be extracted. A tooth which is very loose will also be a candidate for extraction.

Here is the list of some other reasons:

– In case you have an extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in.

– Patients getting braces might require teeth extracted to make room for the teeth that are being moved into place.

– Wisdom teeth also know as third molars, are commonly extracted either before or after they come in.

They usually come in during early 20s or the late teens. They should be removed if they cause pain, are decayed, cause or have an infection or cyst. Wisdom teeth often get stuck in the jaw (impacted) and do not come in. In such cases gum can be irritated, causing swelling and pain.

What is the difference between a tooth extraction and a surgical tooth extraction?

A surgical tooth extraction term is used in the situations when a tooth has forseeable complication attached like extensive decay for example. Extensive decay could result in the tooth breaking off at the gumline, which require extra care to remove root tips. Other complications such as a curved root, make it difficult to elevate out of the socket. Bony involvment, requires the dentist to cut the tooth and remove it in parts. Infection, makes it hard to get the area numb and makes bleeding much worse. All the situations mentioned above qualify a tooth extraction to be surgical.
