Myths About Tooth Extraction

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Thomas Wold, DMD
Myths About Tooth ExtractionThe belief that removing teeth hurts is among the most widespread misunderstandings regarding the procedure. The truth is that the procedure shouldn't cause you any pain since it uses the least invasive dental methods and cutting-edge anesthetics to numb the affected region.

Most dentists who do extractions also provide anesthesia to make patients more comfortable. After the extraction, you may feel some pain, but it will be short and curable.

In addition, most individuals grossly underestimate the length of time necessary to heal after having teeth extracted. Although it takes a few weeks for the tooth socket to completely heal, most patients only have pain for three to four days after the treatment, and they are often able to return to their regular activities within a day or two of the procedure. If you take the aftercare instructions seriously and follow them to the letter, you may anticipate a speedy and uneventful recovery.

Extraction Of Wisdom Teeth Is Not A Necessity

Extraction of wisdom teeth may not be required if the tooth does not negatively impact the patient's oral health. Some persons do not have any issues when their wisdom teeth erupt. If you are undecided about whether or not you should have your wisdom teeth extracted, it is in your best interest to visit your dentist so that they may carry out a thorough oral examination.

If you suspect you may need to have a tooth extracted, you should call your dentist as soon as possible. You should also avoid letting common beliefs prevent you from enjoying the beautiful and well-maintained grin you deserve.
