When does a patient need a surgical extraction?
A surgical extraction becomes a necessity for a patient in several situations. Our dental clinic in Dubai is prepared to perform surgical extractions in the following cases:
• the tooth is extremely damaged – our dentists in Dubai can tell you if the tooth can be saved in accordance with the decay covered area;
• the tooth is severely infected and the doctor can’t perform a root canal treatment (the patient is having severe gum disease);
• when the teeth are too crowded on the dental arches and orthodontics procedures may not offer good results;
• development of the wisdom teeth – they grow in an inaccessible part of the mouth; usually, they do not grow vertically and it may provoke various oral problems. In some cases, our dentists have to cut through the jawbone and tissues to remove them.
Dental extractions in Dubai
At our clinic in Dubai, the doctors will order an X-ray to observe the situation of the tooth or teeth that may need to be removed. The operation will be performed by a dental specialist, called oral and maxillofacial surgeon. According to the gravity of the dental problem, the dentist will apply a local anesthetic. If the patient needs to remove more (or all) teeth, the dentist will choose a general anesthetic, recommended in such cases.
