In the list that follows you can review some of the most common complications that can follow tooth extraction.
2. Prolonged bleeding
This complication is more common in older people and in those that use steroid drugs or aspirin often.
5. Sinus exposure
Intra-oral communication can occur only after the extraction of the teeth on the upper jaw.
6. Displacement of the tooth into the maxillary sinus
7. Nerve injury
Usually, the nerves that are injured after infection are the branches of the mandibular nerve- the inferior alveolar nerve and the lingual nerve.
8. Dry socket
Also called alveolar osteitis. It can occur after several days following a tooth extraction, mostly on the lower jaw. This complication is seen when the blood clot within the healing wound is disrupted. It is an inflammation within the empty tooth socket because of the poor blood supply. Occurs entirely within the bone and since it is not an infection it cannot be treated with antibiotics.
9. Bone fragments
11. Luxation of the adjacent tooth
Which actually is the slow destruction of the bone at the site of the extraction.
