An Overview of the Case

Mrs. Palani came to our dental hospital in Chennai with severe pain in the tooth and swelling in the gum. After a thorough check-up of the affected area, our dentist Dr. Ganesh Vaiyapuri concluded that her lower right tooth is decayed and would require extraction. Our dentist made sure that Mrs.Palani feels minimal pain during the extraction procedure, so she was provided with local anesthesia. 


Dr.Ganesh Vaiyapuri, who is an expert dentist in Nungambakkam ensured that irrigation is performed after the tooth extraction. After the extraction of Mrs. Palani's tooth, the socket was irrigated and suctioned with ample amounts of normal saline (NS). It is the end-of-surgery technique that enabled Dr.Ganesh to remove the debris from the socket. This technique was performed by Dr.Ganesh so that Mrs. Palani's socket can heal normally without any infections. After the successful removal of the lower right decayed tooth, Mrs. Palani now feels better. She is able to continue with her daily routine and enjoy her favorite foods.
