About Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is usually done with an injection of local anesthetic. This numbs the area around the tooth, so that the tooth can be pulled out. Nowadays, dentists will only remove a tooth as a last resort, if it severely decayed and cannot be saved with root canal, if it is causing overcrowding in the mouth, or if it has been damaged due to injury.

Recommended for
  • Severely decayed or infected tooth
  • Overcrowding
  • To fit a prosthesis such as dentures

Time requirements

Average length of stay abroad
1 - 2 days. Some patients allow a few days before travel in case of pain or difficulty speaking. This may be recommended for patients having several teeth removed.

Before Tooth Extraction abroad

Before the procedure, the area around the tooth is numbed with local anesthetic.

How is it performed

In most cases, the dentist will simply remove the tooth with forceps once the anesthetic have been administered. In cases where the tooth is impacted, it may be necessary to cut into the gum to expose enough of the tooth to remove it.

Anesthesia

Local anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Tooth Extraction takes 30 to 90 minutes.

A simple tooth extraction can take 30 minutes, but more complicated extractions (surgical extractions) may take longer.

What to expect after Tooth Extraction

Post procedure care

After the procedure, the dentist may prescribe antibiotics and patients should rest. If the extraction site bleeds, it is advised to bite down on clean cotton.

It is good to allow a blood clot to form over the extraction site, as it will aid healing. Patients should avoid smoking and eating very hot or cold foods, as well as avoiding eating on the side of the mouth where the tooth was extracted, as food may get into the wound and cause bleeding or infection. Ask the dentist about suitable painkillers as some medications such as aspirin, can thin the blood and cause bleeding.

If the blood clot becomes loose and exposes the bone underneath it, it can cause a painful condition called dry socket. Should this occur, a dentist will place an anesthetic cover on the area until it properly heals.

Possible discomfort

There is some minor discomfort associated with tooth extraction, although this should pass quickly. Soreness in the area should pass within a day or 2.
