Although our dentist tries to save as many teeth as possible, in some cases, a tooth may have too much damage or decay to be salvageable. Sometimes, you may find the price of a root canal or other major procedure is too much of an expense and would prefer our dentist in to extract the tooth.
At Care Dental Clinic, serving in Bangalore, we remove teeth with caution to reduce the risk of damage to your nearby gums and teeth. Additionally, our dentist takes the necessary precautions to make the process as easy on you as possible.
Depending on how intact your tooth is and where it is, we will perform one of two procedures. One is a simple extraction, which consists of our dentist at Care Dental Clinic using an instrument to loosen the tooth. Then, once the tooth is loose enough, our practitioner removes the tooth from the socket using a pair of forceps.
On the other hand, our dentist may need to perform a surgical extraction. During this procedure, our dentist must cut into the gum and extract it. Sometimes, you must have bone removed as well, or our dentist must cut the tooth into two halves.
No matter which method we use, our dentist provides you with an anesthetic to numb the pain. With a standard extraction, you receive a local analgesic applied to the area where our dentist is removing the tooth. Surgical extractions, on the other hand, is usually performed using a sedative along with a local aesthetic, although it’s possible to conduct them under a local only.

Quick & Effective Dentist Tooth Extraction
Tooth extractions, or the removal of one or more teeth, are usually used as a last resort in dentistry, as keeping the natural tooth in the mouth is ideal.

Most infected, cracked teeth, including wisdom tooth , can be done comfortably and gently in our Care Dental Clinic. Dr. Shanmukh and his team will explain your diagnosis and all your treatment options with benefits and risks before you commit to an extraction or any tooth extractions services.
Which teeth have to be extracted?
Answers to questions
Typically, during a tooth extraction procedure, sedation is administered to the patient to make them feel relaxed and comfortable. Also, many teeth that are subjected to extraction have nerves that are dead or dying, which means that the affected tooth may not be able to send pain signals out.
Once the procedure is done, detailed at-home care instructions will be given to the patient. To speed up the recovery and avoid any complications, patients must follow the given at-home instructions diligently. However, do know that the recovery period varies from patient to patient.
Smoking following the procedure is prohibited, as it can be a reason for different complications. Smoking can also cause the formed blood clot to dislodge, which leads to a painful dry socket. This blood clot plays an essential role in the healing of the wound. Additionally, several complications may occur if the patient smokes after teeth extractions, such as high blood pressure, dizziness, dry socket, risk of getting an infection, and slower healing process.
