Reasons for Surgical Extractions
By taking an x-ray and examining your tooth, your dentist can usually determine whether or not your extraction will be simple or surgical. But there are times when a simple extraction turns into a surgical. If a tooth breaks off during the procedure, for instance, it may need to be taken out in pieces. The Budget Smiles fixed price surgical tooth extraction is the best appointment for you to book if you are needing a troublesome tooth extracted. Removing severely broken down teeth, root tips or teeth with long-curved roots are other examples of surgical extractions. Then there are times when the bone around a tooth has become dense, resulting in the need for surgical treatment.
Simple Extractions vs. Surgical Extractions
When a tooth is visible above the gum line and your dentist can easily remove it with forceps, the procedure is called a simple or basic extraction. If a more volatile tooth has yet to grow in, however, your dentist needs to remove gum tissue or bone to extract it. This is called a surgical extraction and requires stitches to close the site so that it can heal properly. The Dentist may also prescribe a more specific pain medication following the procedure.
