A visit to the dentist, no matter how old we are, causes the hair on the back of the neck to stand. Why is it so? We always imagine that a visit is going to be painful and the dentist is probably going to put giant injections in our teeth
A Routine Procedure
If you don’t want just one tooth causing problems for all the other ones, you need to get it removed as soon as possible. There could be many reasons. Perhaps all that decaying is causing a foul smell or perhaps it is ruining the stature and denture of your entire set of teeth. In other words, you need to have it removed for one reason or the other. But what you don’t know is that it is a routine procedure and if it is done by an expert then you have nothing to worry about. The dentist has usually performed this a hundred times before and knows exactly how to make the procedure as painless and quick as he can.
Understand How Simple It Is
First things first, an X-ray is taken of your tooth to understand the location and what teeth are around its position. The dentist also has to be well aware of your health and what kind of drugs you have been taking so that he knows what kind of anesthesia to give and how much. If it is a simple tooth extraction then a local anesthesia would so but if it is a more complicated procedure than that then there is the possibility of added medications taken orally. Since you’ve been given the anesthesia, you are now ready for the tooth extraction. It is as easy as that. Your tooth is not concretely set into your gums but rather is held by fibers. After the procedure you are given some medications to overcome the pain you’ll feel once the effect of anesthesia goes away but it is as simple as that.
As you can see, you have nothing to feel anxious about. It is a simple visit in which you are just getting rid of a problem with as little pain as possible.
