It is a procedure where the dentist makes an incision in the gum, separates and sections the tooth, removes the whole tooth and suture. Usually this procedure is done in the clinic under local anesthesia. It might require post-surgical pain killers and rest.
Oris Dental Center has years of experience in making the procedure painless, making us one of the best and painless dentistry in Dubai.
Why do we remove the tooth surgically?
- Badly decayed teeth
- Teeth with multiple curved roots
- Severely damaged teeth due to trauma
- Infection that is not responding for treatment
- Endodontically treated teeth due to their brittle roots
Procedure Before Tooth Extraction
Your dentist will examine the affected tooth and its surrounding gums for detailed analysis. To assess bone health and determine the extent of damage, your dentist may also take Digital X-rays sometimes.
Your dentist will also need to know about any vitamins, medications, or supplements that you are taking. After all the information has been collected, your treatment options and sedation options can be discussed in detail with you.
Oris Dental Center offers sedation options
Our dental professionals offer sedation for tooth extractions or other procedures. For those with dental anxiety or who just want to feel more relaxed during an appointment, sedation can be a great option. The following are some of the treatments for sedation in dentistry:
- Nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas", is a gas you inhale through your nosepiece or mask. This gas is a good choice for those who require light sedation. People who opt for nitrous oxide are able to drive themselves to their appointments.
- Oral conscious sedation. This type of sedation can be administered by mouth in pill form approximately one hour before your appointment. These medications include diazepam and midazolam . lorazepam is another common option. Oral conscious sedation is available alone or in combination with intravenous or nitrous oxide. Your specific needs will be taken into consideration when determining the dosage. Oral conscious sedation patients will require a friend or relative to drive them to their appointment.
- Intravenous (IV), sedation. This is recommended for patients with severe dental anxiety and those who are undergoing long procedures. An IV line delivers sedatives and pain medication directly to your bloodstream. IV sedation can be achieved in the most extreme settings, such as dental offices. Patients who opt for IV sedation must arrange for a driver on the day of their procedure.
Your dentist may sometimes recommend general hospital anesthesia. This is typically reserved for more complex cases such as corrective jaw surgery or facial reconstruction.
