How is a molar tooth removed if it is not loose?

How is a molar tooth removed if it is not loose?

Very carefully: Your dentist or oral surgeon has the proper tools and training to remove the tooth even if it does not seem loose to you. Sometimes, depending on root anatomy, it is taken out in pieces. Often the dentist will want to place a bone graft material in the vacant site to improve healing and your options of a future implant.

Can you tell me how much time would it take to extract an abcess molar tooth?

Procedure time: I can't speak for others. In my office: 15-45 minutes from start to finish in most cases. It depends upon how long it takes the patient to get numb, how loose the tooth is along with the difficulty of the extraction.

I have pain in my upper last molar tooth, so unsure if it's dying or to the other teeth if a molar tooth is removed?

I have pain in my upper last molar tooth, so unsure if it's dying or to the other teeth if a molar tooth is removed?

Have it extracted: The last molar is commonly reffered to as the wisdom tooth. This tooth is very important in relation to your life. An infection in this particular too can lead to spinal cord and brain infection, and death. This tooth was the single most cause of deaths in mammals. For humans the average lifespan was 33 to 37 years because u usually died of a tooth infection in the early days, prior to dentistry

Can I do first molar tooth removal at home?

Can I do first molar tooth removal at home?

Self care: Are you a dentist with a trained assistant to help you, ; have all necessary sterilized instruments available to help you in case you run into a problem? I have been extracting teeth for over 40 years ; once in awhile an apparently easy tooth to extract becomes an unexpected chore! And don't forget the saying, "a doctor who treats himself has a fool for a patient". If a lay person, I think not!

What to do if I have just had a molar tooth removed but it still feels time toothache?

Today I removed my molar tooth but when removing a severe pain caused bleeding didn't stop for hours. What to do now? I am tensed?

Today I removed my molar tooth but when removing a severe pain caused bleeding didn't stop for hours. What to do now? I am tensed?

Calll dentist: I would call your dentist if the bleeding has not stopped. You can try dampened black tea bags until you get in and leave them there for an hour and keep pressure on it. I would avoid spitting or rinsing for the next 24 hours. You can use ice for the first 24 hours. If the bleeding has stopped you can begin rinsing with warm salt water rinses 24 hours after the bleeding ceases.

Has molar tooth extracted 4 days ago and stitch partially fell out just now. Am bleeding a lot! What to do?

Has molar tooth extracted 4 days ago and stitch partially fell out just now. Am bleeding a lot! What to do?

Time for tea: Find a teabag for caffeinated tea, moisten it with water, and then place it in your mouth over the socket. Be gentle but bits down a bit to create some pressure and hold it there for about 10-20 minutes. The caffeine will help constrict the blood vessels and stop the bleeding. If that fails, call your dentist. Good luck!

Recently got braces & the week after, got my top right molar tooth extracted, will my teeth move back to that place since that area has nothing in it?

Treatment Plan: A treatment plan has been established by your orthodontist. They know exactly how your teeth will move into place. Ask your orthodontist what to expect as your case progresses.

When there is an apicectomy on molar tooth roots that is then filled with synthetic bone, is that molar easy enough to extract after osseointegration?

When there is an apicectomy on molar tooth roots that is then filled with synthetic bone, is that molar easy enough to extract after osseointegration?

Absolutely: The bone augmentation is no harder than your own bone, since it is actually your own bone that migrates into the graft site to replace the graft. Hope you don't need to extract that molar after all the work put into saving it.

What do docs think? Should an infected pre-molar tooth in a child be removed or treated with root canal surgery?

What do docs think? Should an infected pre-molar tooth in a child be removed or treated with root canal surgery?

How old is child?: Does this child need orthodontics? Depending on the answers to the above questions, the advice would be different. That's why you need to consult with both your local dentist and orthodontist, if necessary, to devise a plan. Personally, I'm all for saving every tooth that can be saved. The child isn't growing any more.
