However, you don't mention if your complication was associated with pre-extraction conditions which hopefully don't exist with the other teeth , or if the opening and subsequent infection was due to the loss of bone during the extraction process. Last month I went back and he said he didn't see anything but a cavity in a tooth. See below to learn more about both of these procedures. An experienced surgeon has the skills and the necessary instruments to remove teeth completely and make sure there no fragments left behind. I did not want to interrupt the healing at that time so I did not try to remove it.

The dentist will also have the luxury of removing especially curved roots each on their own, instead of locked together as an unmanageable unit.

The dentist said I have possibly taken a reaction to the injection. The faster and less traumatic the extraction the less pain and swelling you will experience after the extraction. This is called a surgical extraction.
It also helps to keep the amount of bone-traumatizing heat that's generated during the process to a minimum. But they certainly don't know for a fact that they will. Root canal treatment is only performed on damaged or. Since I had a massive bleeding, she asked me to come back the next day. The problem - The outcome of a tooth's extraction process may be such that the fractured tip of one of its roots has either been inadvertently, or possibly purposely, left behind.
In these situations, some dentists will give antibiotics immediately after the extraction in the hope that they will prevent a dry socket. Larger root fragments may also be left behind and for the most part will not cause symptoms. If they're upper premolars, its possible there might be a close association with a lobe of your sinuses but that's less common than with molars. Otherwise, the site should be allowed to heal and then place the implant in 2-3 months.
