Dentists always tries to keep fractured tooth by using fillings, crowns and other dental procedures. However, unfortunately, there are cases when it is impossible to cure the tooth and it must be removed.
The main indications for tooth removal are the following:
- Impossibility to save the damaged tooth;
- Presence of superfluous teeth;
- Presence of primary teeth, which did not fall out in time and prevent eruption of permanent teeth.
- The need for removal can be for orthodontic treatment;
- Tooth mobility of third and fourth grade
- Incorrect position of wisdom teeth or other teeth.
Impacted Teeth removal
Impacted teeth are unerupted or partially erupted teeth. Impacted tooth can be located in the bone, or can be covered with a mucosa. For their detection an x-ray examination (intraoral x-ray, orthopantomogram or computed tomography) is mandatory. Only after a thorough examination, the doctor decides whether there is a possibility for using orthodontic treatment or whether the tooth needs to be removed.

When pain, bleeding or inflammation occurs in the wisdom tooth growth zone, you should immediately visit the doctor. Only an experienced specialist can determine the possibility of treatment or the need for its removal.

On the lower jaw, the main thing is to anesthetize the necessary nerve ending. In the case of inflammation, anesthesia will not relieve the pain completely, but will relieve approximately 80-90%. The type of the anesthesia will depend on the complexity of surgery.
