Dental extraction is performed in teeth that are not enough for the treatment of canal root operation, in the milk teeth that do not fall on time, in dangerous wisdom teeth, in the teeth that are not fully rubbed, in teeth that are broken after any impact and for orthodontic treatment. But no tooth should be removed in the condition that can be treated.
Before and after tooth extraction, the points that patients should pay attention to can be listed as follows.
First of all, drugs given by the dentist should be used before tooth extraction. Prior to tooth extraction, patients should report their discomfort to their dentist if they have symptoms such as sugar, high blood pressure, or heart. The patient should brush his teeth if possible and mouth rinse with antiseptic water to reduce the rate of bacteria in the mouth.
If the person to whom the tooth is to be exercised has a calm dental phobia, he or she should share it with the dentist. Today, even though dental phobia is tried to be overcome, this phobia can be experienced by many patients. But if the patient informs the dentist about the subject, this phobia can also be overcome by talking. If the patient is not afraid of the anesthesia, they can also be shot under general anesthesia.
Attention to These!
- The tamp on which the dentist puts on the scar should be kept on the empty area for at least 25-30 minutes, which should not be discarded immediately.
- After the tamp has been inserted, the new tamp should not be replaced if possible. This is necessary so that the blood clot formed on the wound does not disperse. If you frequently change the tamp, you will prevent the clot from forming. The clot will close the gravity cavity like a natural tamp and will prepare the bone to fill the gap later. If the formation of the clot is blocked or clotted, the wound healing deteriorates and a painful process begins.
- The mouth should not be shaken with water.
- Wait at least two hours after the extraction to not eat anything immediately. After the time has elapsed, the patient should choose warm foods and beverages to avoid cold and hot foods.
- Do not use cigarettes and alcohol for 24 hours. This can cause the wound to get infected.
- The empty region that occurs after the tooth extraction should not be played with the tongue, the blood that forms in the injured area should be absorbed and not be spit.
- The area where the tooth extraction is done should not be touched by hand. The wound may be directly infected.
- Hemorrhage may continue after the tooth extraction. This condition lasts for about 6 to 24 hours and should be discussed with the physician in case of excessive bleeding.
- The pain relief used for pain after tooth extraction should be used without consulting to dentist.
- Food residues that may form in the wound may provide bacteria formation in the area. After 24 hours of extraction, the area should be gently brushed with a soft toothbrush. Gargles can be made with warm salt water.
- Normal oral care treatments can be continued one day after tooth extraction. But be careful when brushing this area.
- If you have swelling, excessive pain, bleeding over 24 hours, or a bad taste or odor in your mouth, you should definitely consult your dentist immediately.
- Tooth loss occurring in the mouth causes various digestive disorders. For this reason, one of the dental treatments, such as implants, bridges and prostheses, which the dentist then seems suitable, can be applied to the patient.
