Surgical Tooth Extractions

By Dr. Nour Zourob

Surgical tooth extractions are surgical procedures in which surgical access is required to completely remove a tooth.

Even if the tooth is visible in the mouth without surgically exposing it,surgical techniques may be necessary to remove the tooth.This includes sectioning the tooth into two or more pieces,whether or not a soft tissue incision is made.

Surgical extractions include removal of impacted wisdom teeth (third molars),but this does not mean that all wisdom teeth requiring removal are required to be removed surgically.

Extensively damaged teeth,and teeth with multiple curved roots frequently require extraction by surgical technique when removal is necessary.Teeth which have been endodontically treated and later need to be removed for some reason,frequently require surgical technique as their roots tend to be more brittle.
