Tooth Extractions

Tooth removal

When conservative treatment of tooth fails, the tooth has to be removed. This is a tooth extraction.

X-ray examination is carried out, when necessary.

It is very important for a patient to eat before the removal procedure, as it is not allowed to eat and drink at least 2 hours after tooth removal procedure.

A tooth is removed under local anaesthesia.

Before the injection of anaesthetic agent for children and sensitive persons an external anaesthetic spray is applied on the mucous membranes of patient’s mouth.

A wound is still bleeding after tooth removal, therefore application of sterile dressing is required for further 10-30 minutes. Antibiotics are administered, when necessary.

Visit your odontologist at least twice per year, to prevent such fortune for your other teeth.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth normally erupt later and tend to cause more problems during their eruption period.

Eruption of wisdom teeth usually is incomplete, food residuals used to accumulate there creating favourable environment for growth of various bacteria causing inflammation. Eventually this leads to accumulation of plaque, potentially causing tooth decay and gum diseases.

Only a small space is left in your mouth at the moment of their eruption. Therefore wisdom teeth may grow sideways, their eruption can be incomplete or they can be impacted, thus, causing pain, infections and swelling of gums and a face.

If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your odontologist immediately.
