Dental implant extraction is one of the most complicated procedures that takes place in dentistry. There are some procedures which require a patient to be sedated for a period of time. The reason for this is that these procedures involve the insertion of a new tooth into the jaw. When the procedure takes place, it is important that the dentist is able to monitor the patient closely so as to ensure that he does not suffer from any complications.
It is important that when you are thinking about dental implant extraction that you fully understand the full extent of what you are getting yourself involved with. As with any invasive surgery it is important that you understand what will happen to your mouth before you get your implants. If you do not fully understand how the procedure will work then you may find that you have a greater chance of experiencing complications during the operation.
During the procedure it is common for the dentist to extract some teeth along with the dental implants. You may have a tooth extracted in order to make way for the implant. In this case the extraction is usually done using tools and techniques. These tools can be a dental drill, a scalpel and a root canal instrument. This procedure is not only painful but can also lead to a build up of infection within your mouth.
One of the major complications of dental implant extraction is that you may not be able to eat a meal after the extraction. This can occur due to the fact that the nerves of the jaw may not be able to communicate with the brain. It is therefore important that you consult a dentist at least two weeks before the surgery.
Once the extraction has taken place, it is important that you wash your mouth thoroughly to remove all of the debris that is removed during the procedure. It is also important that you refrain from eating solid food until three days after the extraction takes place. You can use antibiotics to help ward off an infection of this nature. It is important however that you do not take antibiotics for longer than three months as they can cause serious side effects to your body.
When your dental implant has been removed you should make sure that you follow the necessary post-operation procedures which are required in order to get back to work. Remember that there will be a lot of pain and discomfort involved in your recovery period and that you may even need to take painkillers to help you overcome the pain and discomfort.
