What diagnosis leads to Simple tooth extraction?

A simple extraction may be recommended for a variety of dental conditions, including:

  • If a tooth is extensively decayed and cannot be repaired with a filling or crown, extraction may be necessary.

  • If gum disease has caused significant damage to the bone and tissues surrounding a tooth, it may need to be extracted.

  • Sometimes teeth become crowded due to a lack of space in the jaw, and extraction may be necessary to make room for other teeth.

  • If a tooth is unable to emerge fully from the gum line, it may be impacted and need to be extracted.

  • If a tooth is severely fractured or broken, it may need to be extracted if it cannot be repaired.

  • Sometimes teeth may need to be extracted to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

What is the procedure of Extraction Simple? 

During the procedure, the dentist or oral surgeon will use a special tool called an elevator to loosen the tooth from the socket. Once the tooth is sufficiently loosened, the dentist or oral surgeon will use forceps to gently remove the tooth from the socket.

After the tooth is removed, the dentist or oral surgeon will place a gauze pad over the socket and ask the patient to bite down to help stop any bleeding. The patient will be given post-operative instructions, which may include taking pain relievers and avoiding certain foods or activities for a period of time.

A simple extraction is typically a quick procedure that can be completed in a single appointment. 

What are the Risks and Complications Associated with Extraction Simple? 

As with any medical procedure, there are risks and complications associated with simple extractions. Some of these risks and complications include:

  • Bleeding is a common complication after tooth extraction. 

  • Pain and discomfort are normal after tooth extraction. 

  • A dry socket is a condition that occurs when the blood clot that forms in the socket after a tooth extraction is dislodged or dissolves, exposing the bone and nerves. This can be painful and delay healing.

  • Nerve damage is a rare but serious complication that can occur during a tooth extraction. 

  • An adjacent tooth or structure may be damaged during tooth extraction, leading to complications that may require additional treatment.

  • Jaw fractures are a rare but possible complication of tooth extraction.
