The most common dental surgical procedure, along with local anesthesia, is tooth extraction. The indications for tooth extraction are varied, so there is a need to choose the best method that will increase the safety of the surgery, reduce the pain of the procedure, and reduce the amount of postoperative complications. The entire procedure is performed with minimal tissue damage, which promotes rapid healing, and the procedure itself is less tiring for both the patient and the dental surgeon.

When it comes to total tooth extraction, this does not mean that all dental units are removed in one visit. It all depends on the clinical situation, namely

How many teeth remain in the oral cavity;

How badly they are affected.

Dentists recommend removing no more than three teeth in one visit. However, if the periodontally affected teeth are severely loose and more than half of their root system is exposed, it is possible to have all the affected teeth extracted at the same time. This is due to the fact that in this clinical situation the extraction procedure is very quick and does not cause excessive blood loss. It does not even require stitches, only tight tampons covering the wound and hemostatic devices are sufficient.

If all the teeth in the oral cavity are preserved, but they are affected by periodontal disease, or if the indication for their removal is dentures, then the removal is performed in 8 – 9 visits. In most cases, the removal is performed under local anesthesia, but if you are allergic to anesthetic components, then general anesthesia is indicated. In this case, in one procedure, they try to remove as many teeth as possible.

The final healing of the extraction site takes three to four weeks. For a full prosthetic treatment, the impression can be taken only after the complete healing process to ensure a good fit of the prosthesis. Otherwise, there will be protrusions on the inner surface of the denture where the wounds have not healed and these protrusions will traumatize the soft tissues of the oral cavity.
