Remove the tooth

If you face the need to pull out a tooth in Kyiv, contact the QRD Dental clinic. Experienced dental surgeons work in our dentistry. They can quickly and painlessly solve the problem of tooth extraction, as well as provide professional advice at the healing stage.

Why are teeth pulled out?

Often patients come with complaints of a chipped filling or tooth, pain in a previously treated or untreated and decayed tooth. Lots of them are shocked by the information that such a tooth needs to be removed.

Therefore, we decided to explain in which situations we can cure and restore a tooth, and in which, unfortunately, we cannot.

The most common indications for tooth extraction are the following:

  • The coronal part of the tooth is severely destroyed.
  • Chronic inflammation of the surrounding tissues of the tooth, which cannot be cured or re-treated.
  • Crack in the root of the tooth.
  • Broken and misaligned wisdom teeth.

Each situation is complex and unique in its own way, but it requires a professional approach. In the case when there are no other options, the tooth will have to be pulled out to avoid unpleasant consequences.

Broken tooth crown

When a tooth is destroyed to the level of the gums or deeper, it is very often impossible to restore it due to the lack of a sufficient amount of viable tissues. Such a design will not be able to serve for a long time.

Therefore, we cannot predict the service life of such a structure and give a full guarantee for tooth restoration. We always warn patients about our warranty obligations for the work performed and comply with them.

So, in order to perform high-quality work with a successful long-term result and a full restoration of the chewing function, it is necessary to remove such teeth and further prosthetics.

Chronic inflammatory process that cannot be cured

Today, the development of root canal treatment methods and the use of a dental microscope give us the opportunity to treat and save the most difficult teeth, which even 10-15 years ago any dentist would not hesitate to recommend removing.

However, even now, despite this, there are situations when we cannot save the tooth. Most often this is due to the inability to go through the canals and cure the infectious process that has been developing around the tooth for years. Such teeth have often already been treated.

Earlier, during the Soviet Union, the method of filling root canals with “resorcinol-formalin paste” was used. This method has many disadvantages. Among them – a very great difficulty or even the impossibility of retreatment of such teeth, due to the fact that the tooth becomes brittle, the root canals are sclerosed, sometimes completely closed.

In European countries, according to modern protocols, such teeth are not even tried to be treated. This is a direct indication for tooth extraction. However, in our clinic impossible is often possible.

Therefore, regarding the possibility of retreatment of such a tooth, it is necessary to contact an endodontist. Only after the examination and diagnosis, he will tell you exactly whether treatment is possible or the tooth will have to be pulled out.

Cracked tooth root

There are several treatment options for cracked teeth. Not all cracks can still be treated predictably. Depending on the type of crack, we decide whether it is possible to treat it or not, but the most difficult thing is to diagnose and find it.

This can only be done using a microscope. If the diagnosed type of crack can be treated, the tooth will be saved and the doctor will inform you about this at the appointment. If not, it is recommended to remove and place the implant at the same time.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth should be classified as a separate category. More than 90% of people have them misaligned.

These teeth have a habit of quickly breaking down due to the inaccessibility of cleaning and regular clogging of food. A chronic inflammatory process appears around these teeth, which is regularly exacerbated. This process is called chronic pericoronitis.

This diagnosis is a direct indication for tooth extraction. In this case, if the tooth is not removed, the soft tissues around the tooth will regularly become inflamed, which can lead to more complex complications than just “discomfort in the area of ​​the wisdom tooth.”

Quite often, wisdom teeth do not carry any chewing load and do not participate in the act of chewing. In this regard, they are most often recommended to be removed.

In some clinical situations, if they are correctly positioned, in occlusion and healthy, we leave them, but this is quite rare.

This is not to say that tooth extraction is the most pleasant moment of your whole life. But we can say for sure that our specialists will pass it quickly and painlessly. After the doctor does anesthesia, you do not feel pain, only a feeling of pressure remains.

But that’s all. Usually this happens as follows: the patient mentally prepares for removal for weeks, winds himself up, and leaves the office with a smile and the question “Is that all?”

In order for the extraction to be of high quality and predictable, we use x-rays and CT scans to diagnose how the roots of the tooth are located, fully plan the operation and successfully extract the tooth.

We also use optics. Individual glasses, which give the doctor a magnification of x3 or more, allow you to do everything so that the removal goes as atraumatically as possible, without problems and unnecessary stress for the patient.

What happens after tooth extraction?

After tooth extraction, we carefully remove all inflammatory tissues from the socket and treat it with antiseptic. If necessary, we put medicines that dissolve on their own and suture them. Each stage contributes to better healing of the hole and the absence of pain and discomfort.

In order for healing to occur without complications, you must strictly follow the recommendations of the doctor. In most cases, healing happens without you noticing, and you simply forget that there was an operation a few days ago.

In some cases, when a complex extraction is planned, especially the wisdom teeth and very inflamed teeth, healing is somewhat more difficult. For some time (up to 3 days) there may be a slight swelling and discomfort in the hole.

But to prevent complications and accelerate the rate of wound healing, additional medication is prescribed, which contributes to better and faster healing and minimizes postoperative discomfort.

If pain after removal appears and lasts more than 3 days, it is necessary to come for an examination to the doctor. For there are things from which we are not immune and cannot influence on our own, such as food getting into the hole and its further inflammation. The doctor tells you about this immediately after the cure.

The surgeon tells his patients about all the nuances and details of your particular case individually in the office before, during and after the manipulation. With care for you 24/7.

Pulled out a tooth and what's next? Implantation?

According to the statistics of a number of scientific and clinical studies, implant healing occurs in 98% of cases, subject to compliance with all international protocols for implant placement and the use of high-quality and sterile instruments and equipment.

In most cases, if clinical conditions allow, we can place the implant at the time of removal, which is what we recommend to patients before removal. Such an operation is planned in advance, even before the start of the intervention. In such cases, the period of prosthetics is reduced to 3-4 months.

If you do not prosthetize the place of the extracted tooth for a long time, after a while (from 3-6 months) the adjacent teeth begin to shift, leaning towards the defect. Atrophy (loss) of bone tissue also occurs due to the absence of a tooth and loading to this area. Such defects are more difficult to restore and require more visits and time.

So, to resolve issues of any complexity, it is better to contact a dentist and ask additional questions at a consultation.
