Tooth extraction is an effective method of pulling out a decayed or infected tooth. You should immediately get your tooth extracted if you notice the following signs:

Tooth extraction is necessary to create space for braces
Cancer patients need a bad tooth removed before radiotherapy
A tooth needs to be removed prior to an organ transplant
Baby teeth don't fall out properly, or in time for new teeth to come in
Wisdom teeth turn out to be problematic and need to be removed
If you're having your wisdom teeth removed, you may need surgical extraction, of which there are two types:

Usually, it takes 3-4 days to recover from tooth extraction. However, it might take 7-10 days to heal completely. The recovery period mainly depends on how bad the wisdom tooth was impacted and at what angle it protruded. It is also normal to have pain, bleeding and swelling in your mouth post tooth extraction. You can place an ice pack on your jaw for 15-20 minutes on and off to reduce the swelling.
