How Extractions Are Traumatic for Your Mouth
Posted on 6/15/2019 by Dr. Todd Rogers
No one wants to have a tooth extracted. No one. Sometimes, though, tooth extractions are necessary for the overall health of your mouth, and they can even make for a healthier, better smile. You need to be aware of the trauma your mouth could suffer, however. While some of the trauma to your mouth can be major, most of the time, the trauma to your mouth from a tooth extraction is minor, and there are things you can do to make an extraction easier. Keep reading for more information. Why Do Teeth Need to Be Extracted? Teeth have to extracted for many different reasons. Sometimes a tooth is so decayed it cannot be saved, and has to be removed. There are also times that a tooth has to be extracted because of trauma to the mouth. The trauma is so bad that the tooth cannot be saved. There are also times that a tooth has to be removed so that other teeth have room in your mouth, or new teeth can come in. In these cases, tooth extraction improves the overall look of your mouth. Trauma in Extractions In a simple extraction, the tooth can be wiggled out of place, and removed from the tooth socket using forceps. In simple extractions, there will be trauma to your mouth, but it should be limited to swollen gums, and irritation. There will be some pain and discomfort as well, which can be managed. If the extraction is more complicated, your gum tissues may have to be cut to make sure that your whole tooth comes out successfully. In some cases, bone may have to be removed as well. When this occurs, your pain will need to be managed, and you will have additional medications to guard against inflammation and infection. The best way to prevent trauma from extractions is to not have to get them in the first place. However, if you do have to have one, make sure that you follow all of the before and aftercare instructions. That way, you can have as trauma-free of an extraction as possible.
