Tooth Extraction Colorado Springs

Types of Oral Surgery Extractions

There are two main types of tooth extraction: simple and surgical. Simple extractions are typically performed on teeth that are visible and fully erupted. This procedure can usually be done with just a local anesthetic. On the other hand, surgical extractions involve removing teeth that are not easily accessible or have not fully erupted. This type of extraction may require sedation or general anesthesia and is often performed by an oral surgeon.

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

There are several reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, including:

Ensuring Your Comfort During Extractions

To reduce your pain and improve your healing, we will utilize your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelets are a particular kind of cell in your own blood. They are utilized by your body for clotting and healing. We will extract a small quantity of platelets from your own blood and place these in the site of the extraction. Patients receiving PRP report less swelling and discomfort after an extraction.

Oral Surgery Extraction FAQs

Oral surgery extraction refers to the surgical removal of teeth that cannot be easily extracted through simple procedures. It is often performed for impacted or severely damaged teeth.

You may require oral surgery extraction if you have impacted teeth, such as wisdom teeth, or if you have teeth that are severely decayed, damaged, or infected. It may also be necessary for orthodontic or prosthetic treatment purposes.

Oral surgery extraction involves more complex procedures compared to a regular extraction. It may require incisions, bone removal, or tooth sectioning to safely and completely remove the tooth.

During the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area, ensuring a painless experience. Afterward, you may experience some discomfort, but pain medication and post-operative care instructions will be provided to manage it effectively.

The recovery time can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction and individual healing abilities. Generally, it takes a few days to a couple of weeks for the initial healing, and complete recovery can take several weeks.

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications involved, including infection, bleeding, nerve damage, or dry socket. However, these risks can be minimized by following post-operative care instructions and regular follow-up visits.

Sedation options may be available for oral surgery extractions to ensure your comfort and relaxation during the procedure. This can range from local anesthesia to intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the extraction and your preferences.

After the procedure, it is recommended to stick to a soft or liquid diet for a few days to allow for proper healing. Avoiding hard, chewy, or hot foods can prevent irritation or damage to the extraction site.

Proper care of the extraction site is crucial for healing and preventing complications. This may include gentle rinsing with saltwater, avoiding vigorous brushing around the area, and following any specific instructions provided by your dentist or oral surgeon.
