Tooth extraction is the surgical removal of a tooth due to decay, damage or infection. Teeth are also removed for aesthetic reasons and to avoid future issues arising.
Tooth extraction in Turkey
Dentists do their best to repair teeth to address dental conditions. Unfortunately there are some circumstances that put a tooth beyond saving. Patients can experience a bad taste in their mouth, wobbly teeth, pain and sensitivity. These symptoms may indicate an infection requiring tooth extraction in Turkey.
Young people may experience a painful or improper wisdom tooth appearance. Wisdom teeth can sometimes grow sideways or angularly into neighbouring teeth. Wisdom teeth are naturally harder to clean, which can lead to: cavities, sensitivity, and root problems. For these orthodontic and oral hygiene reasons, it is healthy to have wisdom teeth removed.
To keep a healthy oral status, problem teeth should be extracted as soon as possible. Dentares has 2 full-time Maxillofacial surgeons so you can feel comfortable putting your faith in highly-experienced specialists. Local anaesthesia is given for a pain-free treatment.
Can I have sedation for tooth extraction?
For all tooth extraction treatments, local anaesthesia is provided for a painless experience. Patients with some dental anxiety can request sedation but unfortunately Dentares is only able to provide general anaesthesia. Patients are required to meet certain criterias in their blood work and a full medical history must be given prior. There is a greater health risk for general anaesthesia so it is recommended to continue with local anaesthesia.
How is tooth extraction performed in Turkey?
The patient receives a complimentary panoramic x-ray, oral examination and consultation with our Head Physician and Maxillofacial surgeon. During the consultation, the x-ray and intraoral results will be discussed to provide the patient with a treatment plan. If a tooth requires extraction, this will be decided here.
The patient relaxes in the dental chair and within sterile conditions. The surgeon and assistants sterilise their hands, wear gloves, masks, surgical gowns, hair nets and sterilise the patients mouths, inside and out. The treatment may begin. The maxillofacial surgeon applies local anaesthesia for a pain free operation. The tooth is then pulled free. If the tooth proves difficult to remove, it can be cut into sections for easier removal. Dead teeth tend to be the most difficult to extract because the tooth becomes brittle and prone to fracturing during the treatment.
Once the tooth has been removed, the doctor may place bone graft or an implant to the socket based on the treatment plan. The gingiva (gum) is then sutured together with dissolvable stitches.
