Atraumatic Tooth Extraction

At Pearl Dental Clinic, we believe in providing our patients with the highest standard of dental care, including atraumatic tooth extraction. We understand that tooth extraction can be a stressful and uncomfortable experience for many patients, which is why we use advanced instruments and techniques to ensure a more comfortable and less traumatic extraction process.

What is Atraumatic Tooth Extraction?

Atraumatic tooth extraction is a modern tooth removal method that focuses on preserving the surrounding bone, tissue, and gum while extracting a damaged or decayed tooth. Unlike traditional tooth extraction methods that involve pulling the tooth out with force, a non-traumatic tooth extraction employs a gentle approach that minimizes trauma to the surrounding tissues.

Benefits of Atraumatic Tooth Extraction

There are several benefits of atraumatic tooth extraction over traditional tooth extraction, including:

  • Less pain and discomfort: Atraumatic tooth extraction is less invasive and gentler, resulting in less pain and discomfort.
  • Reduced risk of complications: Because atraumatic tooth extraction preserves the surrounding tissues, there’s a reduced risk of complications such as infection, bone loss, and nerve damage.
  • Faster recovery: Atraumatic tooth extraction promotes faster healing and recovery due to the minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues.
  • Reduced bleeding: Atraumatic tooth extraction causes minimal bleeding, which reduced the risk of excessive bleeding after the procedure.
  • More socket bone is preserved for dental implant placement in future.


How do we perform an Atraumatic Tooth Extraction?

At Pearl Dental Clinic, one of the tools we use for atraumatic tooth extraction is the Acteon Cube Piezotome. This ultrasonic surgical device uses high-frequency vibrations to gently loosen the tooth from the surrounding bone and tissues, resulting in a more precise and controlled extraction. The vibration frequency can be adjusted to match the type of tooth being extracted, and the built-in water spray feature cools the area during the procedure, minimizing tissue damage and reducing patient discomfort.

The Acteon Cube Piezotome is particularly effective in cases where conventional extraction techniques may be challenging, such as in cases of impacted or partially erupted teeth. The gentle vibrations of the device can help to break down the surrounding bone and tissue, making it easier to extract the tooth with minimal damage to the surrounding structures.

Another tool we use for atraumatic tooth extraction is the Benex extraction system. This system uses a specialized extraction tool to gently remove the tooth without causing excessive trauma to the surrounding tissues. The Benex system also includes a range of specialized instruments that can be used for different types of extractions, making it a versatile and effective tool for non-traumatic tooth extraction.

The Physics Forceps is another popular tool we use for atraumatic tooth extraction. This system from the USA uses a unique lever and fulcrum design to extract the tooth without the need for excessive force or tissue trauma. The Physics Forceps can be used on various tooth types, including molars and wisdom teeth, and can be particularly useful in cases where conventional forceps are ineffective.


How do we provide a Painless Tooth Extraction?

Proper patient preparation and technique are also crucial factors in performing a tooth extraction. We take the time to carefully evaluate each patient’s unique situation and determine the best approach for extraction. We ensure that the patient is comfortable and relaxed before the procedure and provide painless dental injections. For patients who prefer to be sedated for their tooth extraction, we provide a range of dental sedation solutions.

During the extraction process, our dentists use gentle, controlled movements to extract the tooth, minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissues. We also take steps to ensure that the extraction site is cleaned well to promote optimal healing.

Tooth Extraction Aftercare

After tooth extraction, it’s essential to follow the dentist’s aftercare instructions to promote healing and prevent complications. Here are some aftercare tips to follow:

  • Bite down gently on a piece of gauze for 30-45 minutes to promote clotting and stop bleeding.
  • Apply an ice pack to the affected area for 10-20 minutes at a time to reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Avoid smoking for 7 days after the procedure.
  • Eat soft, cold, and liquid foods for the first few days and gradually introduce solid foods as tolerated.
  • Brush and floss gently around the extraction site, but avoid disturbing the blood clot.
  • Take painkillers and antibiotics if prescribed by our dentists.
  • Attend all follow-up appointments to monitor healing and ensure proper aftercare.

After the extraction, we provide our patients with detailed written post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery. We also offer follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and address any concerns or issues that may arise.
