When it comes to oral health, sometimes an emergency tooth extraction is the only way to relieve pain and restore health. An emergency tooth extraction is required when it is absolutely imperative to extract a tooth within a period of 24 to 48 hours. These situations include massive fractures, severe pain, large cracks, and other scenarios that may jeopardize the patient's oral health. Before an emergency tooth extraction, our dentist will first numb the tooth and surrounding tissue so that you don't feel any pain.
Instead, you'll only feel pressure on your tooth. Then, our dentist will use a tool called an elevator to loosen the tooth. The tooth will then be extracted with tweezers. It may be necessary for our dentist to place some stitches over the extraction site.
These will usually be stitches that dissolve on their own.It's vital that you visit your dentist when you experience severe tooth pain, as the dentist will determine whether or not you need an emergency tooth extraction. One option for finding an emergency dentist is to contact your general dentist to see if they perform emergency procedures or if you have any vacancies for the next day or the same day.Nobody wants to have an emergency tooth extraction, but sometimes it's the only way to save a tooth from further damage or infection. All dentists are qualified to perform emergency tooth extractions if needed, and it's important to know when it's necessary in order to maintain good oral health.
