The untreated caries and the diseases surrounding the tooth tissue often lead to the necessity to remove the tooth. Once we have made sure that the tooth can not be treated with crown, filling or other preservative tooth extraction, the tooth should be pulled out.
A few examples of when the tooth removal is inevitable:
- if dental caries are too large and therefore the tooth can no longer be saved,
- if the tooth is moving and it can not be reversed,
- if a person is injured due to an accident,
- if the wisdom teeth are inflamed and cause pain,
- if a milk tooth is delaying the growth of the permanent tooth
The tooth extraction is done by local anesthesia.
Since there is often insufficient room to ward off the wisdom teeth, gums may develop painful gingivitis. Due to cumbersome access, it is common to damage the wisdom teeth or to push all the tooths ahead which can lead to congestion. In such cases it is necessary to remove the wisdom tooth.
Oral cysts are tissue tubes filled with fluids, which often do not cause pain and in most cases are not harmful.
They may also be located within the oral cavity in the jaw and soft tissues. Removal of the cyst in one piece takes place via a bone window. If the cyst was small, there is no need to inject external material, in the case of large cysts it is recommended that the bone replacement substance be included.
