Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Nobody wishes to get their tooth extracted for fun; there’s always a cause behind it. These causes include:
- Damage: If you accidentally injure your tooth beyond repair, the dentist will have no choice other than extraction.
- Decay: A tooth rotten to an extent it can’t be fixed with a crown, filling, or root canal needs to be extracted.
- Crowd: When your jaw is comparatively smaller to fit your teeth inside. They become overcrowded in an attempt to acquire space inside your mouth. To align them, your dentist might suggest an extraction.
- Periodontal Diseases: A periodontal disease never stays in your gums but can also stretch out to your gum tissues and bones. This can force your gums to lose the tooth.
- Infected: This mostly happens with the wisdom teeth. They either become infected or impacted, reluctant to come out, triggering the need for extraction.

First Night After Tooth Extraction
You must sleep on your side the first night after extraction as lying on your back can increase the swelling. It will be even better if you keep your head elevated with the help of extra pillows. Furthermore, you can restrict nicotine intake, stay hydrated, apply ice, and avoid unnecessary physical movements. Adhere to your dental surgeon’s aftercare guidelines.
