Tooth Extraction

Treatment Description:

tooth extractionWhy do I need to extract my teeth?

Teeth should get removed for several reasons:

- when the decay has reached deep into the tooth
- when infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone
- when there is no space for the teeth in the mouth

Many dentists recommend extracting teeth that are only partially erupted. Around a partially erupted tooth bacteria can accumulate, causing infection, which may extend to the surrounding bone and get very serious.

How does the Tooth Extraction in Hungary look like?

Before removing the tooth the dentist will thoroughly review your medical and dental history, and take an X-rays. Before removing the tooth, the area is anesthetized. For a simple extraction, the tooth is loosened with a tool called an elevator and then removed using dental forceps. Your dentist may also soften and reshape the bone around the tooth. Once finished, they may close the hole with a stitch.




What is a surgical extraction?

Surgical extraction is a procedure conducted on the teeth that are not visible in the mouth. To extract them, the surgeon needs to cut the gum to gain access to the tooth.

What is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Wisdom teeth are the teeth that are slowly disappearing in the process of evolution of the facial skull. Therefore, the shape and position of wisdom teeth is highly variable. They can be placed vertically, horizontally or vertically with the crown laid down. The removal of such a tooth is dependent on these conditions. Your dentist assesses the degree of difficulty of the procedure and then informs the patient. The teeth stacked correctly or slightly obliquely are not difficult to remove by an experienced dentist in Budapest. If the position of the tooth is bad, ie: completely horizontal, the treatment is conducted by the dentist or surgeon in a hospital.

Can I have more than one tooth extracted during one visit?

Removal of the tooth is a minor surgery but still aggravating to some extent the body. This procedure must be performed under local anesthesia, to be completely painless. Under local anesthesia, only one tooth should be removed, with the exception of two adjacent teeth. Then you can remove two adjacent teeth. The extraction of two teeth located in the opposing dental arches should not be done, because of the difficulty in eating food, among other reasons. The so-called multiple extractions are usually performed under general anesthesia under the supervision of an anesthetist, and only according to strict clinical indications.

Treatment Time:

The normal extraction should take between 30-60 minutes. In case of the Surgical Extraction, the procedure may last longer.

After Treatment:

Immediately after the tooth extraction, it is very important to keep the area clean to prevent infection. Over the next 24 hours you should not smoke, rinse your mouth vigorously, or clean the teeth near the extraction area. It is also preferred to drink through a straw, limit strenuous activity and avoid hot liquids. Your dentist may recommend that the day after the extraction to begin gently rinsing your mouth with warm water with salt.
