The permanent tooth in our mouth is meant for lifetime, but in some instances extracting the tooth will be the only option left. One of the most common reasons for extraction is grossly destructed tooth near to the gumline due to trauma or decay. In many cases when the tooth decay extends deep to the pulp of the tooth, usually root canal treatment is done to save the tooth, but in some conditions, the infection is so severe that root canal treatment fails to cure and hence extraction will be the only resort to prevent the further spread of infection. Oral surgery is a dedicated branch in dentistry specializing in tooth extractions/ wisdom tooth removal and other minor and major surgical procedures. Tooth extraction in Dubai at Versatile dental clinic is performed by highly specialised dentists having years of experience.
Wisdom teeth removal (Oral surgery)
Periodontal disease (Gum disease), in this condition there will be infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth leading to mobility of the tooth, and hence the dentist may need to extract the affected tooth. In an overcrowded mouth during orthodontic treatment or braces therapy, the dentist will have to remove the teeth to create appropriate space for proper alignment. These are the reasons where teeth extractions are commonly indicated.
There are certain scenarios, where the tooth will fail to erupt and gets impacted or blocked within the bone, due to lack of space, in this case the dentist will have to split the soft tissue and trim the bone and gently remove the impacted tooth. The third molar or the wisdom tooth is the one which is usually impacted in young adults.

Your dentist before extracting the tooth will take an in-depth medical history, like the systemic conditions you have such as liver disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), high blood sugar levels and the medications and supplements you take on daily basis. It is very crucial that the patient informs the dentist if any positive history available, since certain systemic conditions will interfere with the healing process and has the risk of developing secondary infection. Our teeth removal specialists at Versatile dental clinic, Al Barsha 1, will make sure the patient is calm throughout the procedure.
The dentist before extracting the tooth, will administer the local anaesthetic injection, after applying a topical anaesthetic gel. This will totally prevent pain during the procedure. Then the doctor will gently split the gums attached to the affected tooth trying to move the tooth back and forth to loosen its attachment from the underlying ligaments thereby removing the tooth from its socket. During wisdom teeth removal, if it is an impacted tooth, then we need to split the soft tissue and trim the bone and gently remove the tooth either in pieces or in whole.

After an extraction, your dentist will advice you to take some safety measures that has to be strictly followed. First and foremost, you need to take the medicines as per your prescription. Gently but firmly bite the gauze pack placed on the extraction site by your dentist for 20-30mins, this allows the formation of blood clot and reduces bleeding. Do not rinse vigorously for 24hrs after extraction, to prevent the dislodging of the clot formed. Avoid smoking since this can interfere with the healing process. Maintain the extraction site clean after eating by gently washing your mouth. Meet your dentist for a follow-up visit so that he/she can access the healing process and give you proper instructions if needed.
