Do you have severe tooth pain? Does one of your teeth have multiple cavities? Or do you have a child whose adult teeth aren't coming in? All of these situations can cause discomfort, pain and long-term dental complications. If you have any of these problems, then you might need a tooth extraction in Kitchener.
Tooth extractions can help relieve many types of symptoms. However, because of the consequences and risks, you should always consult with a dentist to evaluate all of your treatment options. Tooth extraction in Kitchener might become necessary if you have any of the following dental health issues:
Decayed teeth: Deep cavities can infect the dental pulp inside the tooth, threatening nerves and blood vessels. If the infection does not respond to root canals or medicine, tooth extraction becomes necessary.
Periodontal problems: Infections of the gums can weaken the gums that support your teeth. If the teeth become loose, you might require a tooth extraction.
Infection risks: If you have any immune deficiencies, a tooth infection can threaten your health. If a tooth has the potential to become infected, it's sometimes best to remove it.
Crowded mouth: Patients with teeth too large for their mouth might suffer from crooked teeth or a bad bite.
Tooth extraction can make any orthodontic procedures easier. A child with a crowded mouth might need tooth extraction to make room for adult teeth.
During the extraction procedure, you will receive an anesthetic to dull any pain. Dr. Soliman will then pull the tooth or break it into pieces, if necessary. You will receive gauze or stitches to help the wound heal.
If you require a tooth extraction, visit Dr. Mona Soliman. She will help you make an informed decision about your dental care. Tooth extraction encompasses many types of dental surgeries, from teeth removal to surgical correction of dental and facial deformities.
Oral surgery is commonly practiced in most dental offices on a daily basis, although it is a recognized dental specialty by the American Dental Association. Oral surgery can be as simple as the in-office removal of a baby tooth, or as complicated as the repair of broken facial bones and jaws in a hospital operating room. Local anesthesia or sedation, such as nitrous oxide gas, is used in teeth extractions at Manitou Dental Centre. Those patients with complicated medical histories or other problems requiring a specialist may be referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
Pre-operative instructions: Root planning and curettage is a minor surgical treatment performed under local anesthesia by Dr. Soliman or her dental hygienist. Root-planning involves deep scaling below the gum line to remove a heavy calculus (tartar) can cause periodontal problems or pyorrhea of the gingival tissues and bone tissues. Curettage involves the surface removal of diseased gingival cells of a periodontal pocket or deep area around the tooth. The objective of root planning and curettage is the reduction or elimination of inflammation, reduction or eradication of gingival or periodontal pockets. The patient's meticulous hygiene care is extremely important to aid in healing and further prevent gingival problems. The regular use of Rotadent toothbrush will make the root planning and curettage more successful and heal much quicker.
Post-operative instructions: You have just had minor/major periodontal surgery. You will experience some discomfort which can very considerable. Any prescribed medication should be taken as directed. Soreness should subside in a few days but may last several weeks. It is imperative to continue with immaculate home-care (brushing and flossing) even through the healing phases to ensure proper results. Warm salt-water rinses are necessary 4-5 times per day. If any fever, swelling or severe pain occurs, please contact the office immediately! Bleeding is normal for up to 24 hours. If any sutures (stitches) or periodontal dressing is placed on your mouth, gently clean these areas as well as you can, and rinse with care. Return to my office in one week for post-operative treatment.
