When the tooth is extracted, there may be many complications, one of which is known as a dry socket. This is a condition wherein the bone underneath the gum to which the tooth was connected gets exposed and it may cause infections or inflammations and other complications. Food and air may come in contact with the bone and thus cause the problems. You may even get ear aches when this happens. In such cases, it is very important not to neglect the situation and one should immediately go visit the doctor.

Many people have reported that the teeth close to the extracted tooth tend to become loose and thus may fall out. However, this is very natural as teeth are in close proximity to each other and when a tooth is removed, the other surrounding teeth don t have anything to press against which had held it tightly. This wobbliness tends to go away with time as the teeth adjust. Unless it remains for too long or causes other problems, you should visit your dentist. However, it is a myth that the extraction of teeth will make all the teeth lose.

4 of 5
After getting a tooth extraction done, the chances of developing a tooth infection which progresses to lung infections or other serious ailments may increase manifold if you smoke. The use of any form of tobacco may cause issues with your health or hygiene, but the incidence of infections after tooth extractions has been seen to be much higher in smokers than non-smokers. A common infection of the lungs that has been observed frequently is Alveolitis (inflammation of the lungs air sacs) and hence it is advised that you either quit smoking altogether or stop for a few days after the procedure.

Teeth may be extracted even if there are no problems with them. This is usually done in the case of braces where the gap in certain teeth may need to be fixed. However, the teeth that needed to be fixed will need space to adjust to their new location. Thus, certain molar teeth at the back of the mouth may be extracted to make way for this. However, if the orthodontics or the supporting braces and other dental material are not correctly in place or post-procedural care is not taken properly, teeth problems may start occurring.
