Whether young or old, if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your jaw, your dentist may suggest tooth extraction as a solution. There may be instances where the baby teeth do not fall out in time so in order to make room for the adult teeth to grow, tooth extraction is required.
Particularly for extraction of adult teeth such as wisdom tooth removal, it has to be carefully pulled out. If they are not extracted, they may continue to cause pain and increase the risk of complications such as oral infection and gum disease. Your dentist will advise you accordingly based on your situation. As such, it is better to leave it to a professional to ensure a smooth and comfortable dental experience.
Do note that after the procedure, it is essential to bite on the gauze to reduce bleeding. For more information, book your dental appointment with GH Goh Dental Surgery.
