Tooth extraction procedures in Binbrook
Tooth extractions are very common procedures which are typically performed if a tooth cannot be saved due to damage, trauma, injury, or decay. Other common examples are when issues such as tooth overcrowding, shifting (such as with wisdom teeth), and infection occur. Tooth extractions are performed to relieve patients of pain or discomfort in most cases and to prevent infection or gum disease.
What’s next following an extraction?
Following an extraction, your dentist will clean the site thoroughly to remove all debris, tooth fragments, and infected tissue. If necessary, stitches are also applied to prevent complications. Shortly after, a blood clot will form to allow the extraction site to heal around the wound.
Once properly healed, implants can be installed and other options such as bridges are dentures can also be considered.
