Complications of Extractions

  title={Complications of Extractions},
  author={Edward T. Earley},
The many risks and considerations involved when performing an extraction can present a particular challenge to the dental professional, especially regarding management of bleeding. Many factors can increase the potential difficulty of an extraction, including difficult root morphology and some inflammatory disorders, but with a thorough medical history, a complete pre-operative examination, and adherence to proper surgical guidelines, complications can be kept to a minimum. Due to the high… 

A Retrospective Evaluation of Secondary Wound Healing for Extraction of the Maxillary First Molar in Dogs

It is demonstrated that primary closure of a maxillary first molar extraction site may not be required for appropriate soft tissue wound healing in canine patients.

Clinical Evaluation of Intraoral Suture Patterns Using Poliglecaprone 25 in Greyhound Dogs

Mandibular canine tooth extraction sites were more likely to have a high dehiscence score than all other sites combined regardless of surgical technique, and SC is an alternative to SI for closure of occlusal surfaces in the mouth.

Common Carotid Artery Ligation to Minimize Blood Loss During Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The purpose of this paper is to describe how to perform ligation of the common carotid artery in a step-by-step fashion and both temporary and permanent ligation techniques are described.

Ophthalmic complications following ocular penetration during routine dentistry in 13 cats

Clinicians should be aware of the risks of ocular trauma during dental procedures in cats and great care should be taken to avoid ocular penetration, particularly during tooth extractions, while using transoral maxillary nerve blocks with extreme caution in cats.

Adjunct Extraction Techniques in Equine Dentistry.

A new understanding of oral and dental disorders of the equine incisor and canine teeth.

Analysis of the anatomic relationship of the infraorbital canal with the roots of the maxillary fourth premolar tooth in the three different skull types: Mesocephalic, brachycephalic, and dolichocephalic, using cone beam computed tomography

Based on these findings, extra care must be taken with the dolichocephalic and the brachycephalic skull types to avoid iatrogenic trauma to the infraorbital canal and the orbit during surgical procedures on the maxillary fourth premolar tooth.

Unusual Presentation of Actinomycosis Misdiagnosed as Severe Periodontal Destruction

An adult female patient with a diffuse and atypical actinomycotic lesion which had a large desquamation and subsequent exposure of the alveolar bone in the region of the maxillary left first and second molars is reported.

Insight of Dogs' Inner Mandible Anatomy using Mathematical Models

These models will allow a clinician to estimate the size of the mandible structures by only using data obtained during the physiological examination, with a sufficiently high prediction capacity and a very low standard error.

Diagnosis and Management of an Oronasal Fistula Secondary to Nasal Transmissible Venereal Tumor in a Dog

This case report describes the diagnosis of an oronasal CTVT using histopathology and IHC, followed by treatment of the tumor with chemotherapy and surgical correction of a defect caused by the tumor.



How to identify potential complications associated with cheek-teeth extractions in the horse.

Oral and radiographic findings that would alert the clinician to complications associated with cheek-tooth extraction include recognition of a palatal deviation of a cheek tooth that may predispose to an oronasal/oroantral fistula and/ or a palatine artery laceration, and identification of immature and/or endodontically challenged teeth that may be predisposing to fracture during an extraction procedure.

Dry socket incidence compared after a 12 year interval.

Life-threatening hemorrhage after extraction of third molars:case report and management protocol.

A case of postextraction hemorrhage that led to airway compromise necessitating emergency airway management is described and an algorithm for management both in the dental office and in the hospital is presented.

Complications of equine oral surgery.

A review of dry socket: a double-blind study on the effectiveness of clindamycin in reducing the incidence of dry socket.

It is demonstrated that the incidence of dry socket after third molar surgery is significantly higher in the mandible than the maxilla, in smokers than in non-smokers, and in females currently on oral contraceptives.

Bilateral Iatrogenic Maxillary Fractures after Dental Treatment in Two Aged Horses

The patients had rostral, transverse, and complete bilateral maxillary fractures with instability and minimal displacement, and the fractures were repaired using bilateral intraoral wiring with the patients under general anesthesia.

Review of factors contributing to dry socket through enhanced fibrinolysis.

Use of oral contraceptives and trauma during extraction are substantiated factors that contribute to dry socket and the influence of bacteria and antibiotics on the development and prevention of dry socket remains unclear.
