The Tooth Extraction Procedure

Intense discomfort can be frustrating and alarming. Once you arrive for an emergency appointment, an experienced oral surgeon will immediately undergo a medical examination to identify the root cause of your pain. This will also determine how decayed the tooth is to determine if it needs extraction or if it can be saved. If the tooth can be saved, you may be recommended other forms of treatment. Tooth extraction is typically considered as a last-choice form of treatment. If the pain is too severe and or your tooth is severely damaged beyond repair, tooth extraction treatment will be necessary.

Once understanding the root cause behind your pain, a medical assessment will be completed to understand your oral condition. This is essential before tooth extraction is performed.
Before tooth extraction begins, local anaesthetic is applied to the affected area to keep the procedure painless. Once the anaesthetic is settled, the gums and jaw will begin to feel numb.
Finally, the tooth extraction procedure begins. With secure dental equipment, the tooth is grasped with forceps and in a slow-rocking motion rocking from side to side until it gradually becomes lose. This motion continues until the tooth is softly pulled from its socket permanently.

What Should You Do After Tooth Extraction Treatment Is Complete?

Once your tooth is extracted, you will likely experience shock pain which is likely to increase once the anaesthetic wears off. The oral surgeon will also check for internal bleeding after the extraction is complete, where a gauze pad will be given to bite on to reduce the blood flow.

After 24 hours post-treatment, you’re expected to feel stiffness and healing pain within the mouth for at least 5 to 7 days. 

We recommend you consider these options for faster recovery:

  • Take regular antibiotics prescribed by the oral surgeon and as per instructions
  • Avoid physical exercise or activity and take regular rest
  • Brush your teeth daily but use a soft-thistle brush to avoid the gap
