Tooth Extractions and Pain – What You Need To Know

Tooth Extractions and Pain

 

There are indeed many reasons why tooth extraction may be required. It is a common procedure that is relatively pain free. However, there are some cases where pain may persist for some time. People have teeth extracted for everything from teeth that have become broken or decayed to teeth that have nerve damage. Tooth extraction is a smart decision when it is warranted because it reduces the potential for infection and other more serious health related problems. When the gums can no longer support teeth this is another instance where tooth removal is the best option.

 

Dental Discomfort

 

In other cases perfectly healthy teeth may require removal. For instance, if wisdom teeth are impacted or emerging sometimes the best solution is removal. As a note to those with dental issues, if you are experiencing dental discomfort always consult with your dental care provider as soon as possible. When it comes to having a tooth extracted, the pain can vary from individual to individual. This variance can be in terms of levels of pain and as well as the length of time it takes for the pain to subside. Those with tooth pain should never simply avoid the dentist because of a fear of having a tooth extracted.
