Surgery

Dental surgery is a surgical procedure performed to remove one or more infected or damaged teeth. It can also be performed to remove an infected tooth root that cannot be treated with endodontic therapy.
Before surgery, the patient may need an X-ray scan or a CT-scan to help the dentist assess the depth and condition of the tooth. The surgeon may use a local anesthetic to numb the area of the body where the procedure will be performed, and in some cases, full anesthesia will be needed.
Generally, the dental surgery procedure involves a small incision in the tongue, roof of the mouth, or anywhere else that may be needed, to reach the infected tooth or root. The surgeon will then remove the infected tooth or root from the bone, using special dental surgery tools.
After surgery, the patient should follow the dental surgeon’s instructions to minimize discomfort and facilitate the healing process. This may include the use of analgesics and eating bland foods.
Dental surgery is a serious procedure and may be necessary to cure a tooth infection or relieve pain.
