What Is A Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is essentially the partial or total removal of teeth through the oral cavity by cutting them away. Extractions are usually done for different reasons, but more often to remove worn out teeth that have become severely infected. Most times an extraction will be necessary for one patient and not the other, based upon the severity of the infection. The recovery time for a tooth extraction depends on many factors, such as whether or not the tooth has been irreparably damaged.Get the facts about Tooth extraction Davenport IA you can try this out.

Tooth extraction can sometimes cause a scar, known as post-operative pain. This is usually caused by the metal instruments used to remove the tooth or a small amount of inflammation, if the surgeon used an anesthesia. The wound may heal and there may be a need for antibiotics. This type of procedure generally only lasts from a few hours to a couple of days depending on how severely the tooth was damaged. If the infection in the wound or in the pulp chamber is severe enough, this can lead to abscess formation. This is a very serious infection and must be treated immediately so as not to spread to other areas of the body.

Having good oral hygiene is important when taking care of your teeth. Regular brushing, flossing and using fluoride toothpastes are good preventive measures against tooth decay. As for teeth replacement, dental implants, bridges and root can provide a permanent solution to missing teeth and give your smile that “imperfect” look you are looking for.
