Extraction means removing a tooth because of periodontal disease or severe decay. If there’s any need for a tooth extraction, Dr. Rashid in Welland’s Besma Dental Family Centre will numb the area to reduce your discomfort level. After the extraction, Dr. Rashid will advise the post-extraction regimen to be followed. In most cases, a small amount of bleeding is normal. You will find that slowly your mouth will fill in the bone where the extraction was done. It is done through the formation of a blood clot. Dr. Rashid offers surgical treatment with or without sedation.
Main Causes for Teeth Extraction
While removing a tooth, it is important to consider what will happen with the empty space after that tooth is removed. Wisdom teeth are at the back of the mouth and that area will heal on its own with no complications. If it is necessary to remove another tooth, pre-planning should be done. If a tooth is removed and nothing is done to the extraction site, the jaw bone will degenerate and change shape during healing and can cause your teeth to shift. With this, you may find issues with your bite and your ability to speak and chew may also get affected.
If you want to fill the space with a dental implant, a sturdy jaw bone is necessary to install the implant. If you go for a dental bridge, the bridge must be molded and placed before the teeth-shift.
