Reasons for Tooth Extractions Columbus

Wondering what the common reasons for tooth extractions in Columbus, GA are? They include:

  • Wisdom teeth removal – These molars, located in the extreme back of the mouth are relics from a time when out ancestors required more grinding and chewing power. As our jaws narrowed and our diets evolved to not need these additional teeth, the wisdom teeth can often cause more harm than good.
  • Decay – If a tooth decays past the point of being saved, it must be removed in order to prevent other teeth from also becoming negatively affected.
  • Pre-orthodontics – In some cases, teeth removal is necessary to allow for the movement of the teeth during orthodontics.

After care for dental extractions is incredibly important. Your dentist will go into detail about the important steps you can take to encourage the healing process, but here are a few tips:

  • Avoid creating suction in the mouth that can dislodge the clot. This includes drinking through straws and cigarette smoking.
  • Avoid crunchy and/or hot foods since they can hurt the extraction site. Eat soft foods like yogurt, but ice cream usually helps the healing, and who doesn’t like an excuse to have some ice cream?
  • Avoid being overly active or exercising for the first 24 hours after the extraction.
