Dental Extraction Process

The dental extraction process involves removing a damaged or impacted tooth from its socket. It is a standard dental procedure performed by an oral surgeon or a dentist. The method may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the extraction. The wisdom teeth removal is replaced with a dental implant or a bridge to restore oral function and aesthetics. After the extraction, proper care is necessary to ensure true healings.

Dentists perform a wisdom teeth removal damaged, decayed, or impacted teeth. Our experienced dentists use the latest techniques and equipment at America Dental Costa Rica to ensure a comfortable and successful extraction process.

The first step is to numb the area with a local anesthetic. This ensures that the patient will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Next, the dentist will loosen the tooth using special tools and gently remove it from the socket.

After the extraction process, the dentist will place gauze over the socket to control bleeding and promote healing. It is essential to follow the post-operative instructions given by the dentist to encourage proper healing and prevent complications.

Types of Dental Extractions

Each type of teeth removal process serves a specific purpose based on the condition of the tooth and the overall oral health of the patient. The choice of extraction method depends on factors such as the tooth’s location, condition, and the presence of any complications.

Teeth removal process, or tooth extractions, encompass various procedures aimed at removing teeth from the oral cavity. The different types of dental extractions include:

  • Simple Dental Extraction: A straightforward procedure involving the removal of a visible tooth using an elevator to loosen it and forceps to extract it.
  • Surgical Tooth Operation: A more complex extraction performed when a tooth is not easily accessible, often due to breakage at the gum line, incomplete eruption, or multiple roots.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Removal of the third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, due to issues such as impaction, misalignment, or lack of sufficient space in the jaw.
  • Impacted Tooth Extraction: Extraction of teeth that have not properly emerged through the gums, often necessitating a more intricate procedure.
  • Orthodontic Extraction: Removal of teeth as part of orthodontic treatment to create space and facilitate proper alignment of the remaining teeth. Typically involves the extraction of premolars.
  • Deciduous Tooth Extraction: Removal of baby teeth that may not have fallen out naturally or could impede the eruption of permanent teeth.
