Listen to tooth extraction is that many people feel scared. People imagine a lot of scenarios that are painful, ugly, bloody and so on. However, if you refer to the following information, then surely the anxiety will be less and psychological is very comfortable.
We will explore the experts’ answers:
1.Tooth extraction will be very painful, is this correct?
Currently, when extracting the teeth, doctors will use anesthesia to cut pain (with anesthetics for normal people, and anesthetic for patients with cardiovascular disease …)
You will not feel the pain during treatment, but at first it will feel a little bit (feeling like ants bite) because the needle is piercing the gums. For hypersensitive patients, Quoc Binh Dental Clinic will apply painless injection technology. So there’s nothing to worry about, is it right?
Duration of anesthesia can be as long as 60 minutes to 120 minutes. Therefore, even after extracting the tooth, the pain is not too much. For difficult teeth, more processing time, and extraction tools will affect much of the surrounding tissue. At times, you maybe feel a little pain, and may be slightly swollen in the treatment area. However, be assured that your doctor will prescribe analgesic and anti-inflammatory medications for you.
2.Can people with cardiovascular disease have extractions teeth?
This issue we will consider two aspects. Have heart disease or just because of psychological factors.
@If you are experiencing cardiovascular disease, diabetes. You can still extract your teeth if your doctor is giving you approval. As the disease is related to internal medicine, the professional opinion of the doctor is monitoring and medical treatment for you to decide.
At the same time, the dentist will be able to conduct treatment with specific methods for patients with cardiovascular disease. (for example, using a special anesthetic without vasoconstrictors, will not cause cardiac stimulation …)
@If you are nervous or anxious (psychological factors), whether normal situation and not cardiovascular disease. But when you see needles, tooth extraction tools, or simply sit on the dentist’s chair, you feel scared, heart pounding, difficulty breathing, pale skin, sweating … or even during treatment, low blood pressure or syncope. At this point, your heart is stimulated by neurological factors, not cardiovascular disease.
Then, your doctor will help you stabilize the mind, explain the treatment steps, create peace of mind, and trust. After calming the treatment will be easier. In addition, a mild dose of a sedative can be used to assist in the removal of the tooth.
3.Tooth extraction will touch the facial nerve and can cause death:
You will read somewhere the information of tooth extraction is deadly, tooth extraction paralyzed face … But whether the information is true and accurate?
First, you need to know, extraction is the removal of the tooth from the jaw. If done well, do not leave the root, thoroughly treat the pathology of the root. Do not interfere strongly causing nerve compression. The extraction of teeth does not affect the facial nerve.
So why is there a situation to numb the lips, numb the lower jaw after tooth extraction 24h?
We can explain as follows: because of under the root of teeth have the nerve running through, so when anesthesia extracted, the anesthetic also temporarily affect the sensory stop in these nerves. Once the numbness is gone, your lips and jaw will feel normal again. The worst thing to think about is that during tooth extraction, it hurts to compresses the nerves.
In addition, there are still situations where extracting soft tissue is swollen, not restored yet, will also cause numbness.
If the numbness lasts for weeks, you need to go back to the treating physician to check for and recover the affected area.
4.Some important notes in controlling the speed of blood clots, to avoid excessive blood loss in the tooth extraction
Normally, after tooth extraction, the blood will clot, preventing the loss of blood from the body. Ensure self-protection mechanism, self-recovery.
However, there are some situations in which the blood does not follow the natural law as above. Such as:
- Patients with hemophilia, because of lack of blood clotting factor (this is a rare disease). This disease is known to the patient, should be reported to the doctor involved in the surgery. Therefore, if the tooth extraction is really necessary, then the dentist will have a solution for you.
- Patients who are taking medications that reduce blood clotting (eg: aspirin)
- Cardiovascular patients are treated with anticoagulants.
- Patients are in the state of tooth inflammation, inflammation of the jaw bone that makes blood clotting longer than normal.
- And girls are in menstruation (blood will be harder to clotting than usual)
Notice some of the mistakes that many people make: you hear some instructions right after the tooth extraction must use salt for antiseptic, or use ice to gums shrink, for purpose want the blood will not flow out again. This is totally wrong. Doing this will make the blood be harder to clotting.
5.How to stop bleeding after tooth extraction?
For ordinary people: You just need to bite the cotton wool that the doctor to get into the tooth was extracted within 30-45 minutes, then can replace the other (cotton wool was brought to home).
For people with hemophilia, or weak blood … corresponding to different causes, the doctor will have a timely treatment direction to avoid serious consequences (using hemostatic medicine, stitching stop the bleeding, injection of blood coagulants …
6.What is the best time to extract the teeth?
For patients with normal health, the tooth extraction time is not too serious.
However, depending on the nature of the tooth needs to spit, if the teeth are difficult should to spit during the day, so that if there is blood flow more or more pain, you will get help doctor immediately. (avoid the midnight need the emergency)
In addition, there are several reasons to consider:
- In the morning the energy is full, the health is restored after a night of rest.
- More time to follow up after treatment.
- However, if you need to extract teeth in the evening, it is still done, with the condition that the doctor must understand and predict the results and complications with the tooth extraction.
