Extraction Of Tooth

A simple but graphic slide animation that shows you how a tooth is extracted by a dentist under local anesthesia. Tooth extraction is required when the tooth is chipped off and causing problems or is infected and cannot be preserved. It usually is done under local anesthesia. Tell your doctor if you are taking tablets for thinning of blood like aspirin or if you have had a heart valve replacement. In such cases special precautions are required.

Let us elaborate more on tooth extraction. Immediately after the tooth is removed, a bite pack is used to apply pressure to the tooth socket and stop the bleeding. After a tooth extraction, dentists usually give advice which revolves around not disturbing the blood clot in the socket by not touching the area with a finger or the tongue, by avoiding vigorous rinsing of the mouth and avoiding strenuous activity.
