Various circumstances make the removal of teeth necessary. Gentle and modern procedures are available today. Dr. Thomas Franke is a mouth and jaw surgeon and the first point of contact for tooth removal, which he carries out in his MGK practice in Berlin Charlottenburg. Many years of experience and intensive training make our tooth removal particularly gentle.
When is a tooth removal necessary?
Severe damage to teeth often makes it impossible to preserve the tooth. Your dentist will then usually refer you to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for further treatment. MGK surgeons are able to remove the affected tooth including the root. In this way, it is usually possible to preserve the bony alveolus for later dental implantation. This is referred to as socket preservation.
Performing of the tooth removal
As a rule, a local anaesthetic is sufficient for outpatient surgery. You will not feel any pain during the procedure with this local anaesthetic. After careful removal of the tooth, root and tooth remains, a suture seals the opening in the gum.
In patients with anxiety and in special cases, the procedure can be performed in twilight sleep and under general anesthesia.
Dr. Thomas Franke and his team will advise you in detail on the appropriate form of anaesthesia prior to tooth removal. We will also discuss with you in advance any circumstances that might speak against the operation at a certain point in time, such as serious general illnesses or pregnancy.
Duration of healing and aftercare
The threads are removed after ten to fourteen days in a control appointment. If pain occurs, pain medication will be provided. If you cool the surgical site from the outside over the cheek area, swelling and bruising can be significantly reduced. Take care in the first 24 hours after the operation.
The stitches are removed after ten to fourteen days in a control appointment. If pain occurs, painkillers will be provided. If you cool the surgical site from the outside via the cheek area, swelling and bruising can be significantly reduced. Spare yourself in the first 24 hours after the operation.
After three to five months, healing in the bone area is also complete.
