Simple/ Surgical Extractions

Simple/ Surgical Extractions

We try to keep and preserve the tooth as much as we can but sometimes removal of it is necessary because of pain, infection, bone loss or fracture of the tooth.
Our oral surgeons may determine that the addition of certain surgical steps to a patient’s tooth’s extraction process will help to make its removal go more smoothlyThe added surgical steps may include:

-Removing or reflecting gum tissue.

-Removing bone tissue from around your tooth

-Sectioning your tooth (cutting it into parts).

When one or more of these techniques are used, the procedure is formally categorized as a “surgical” extraction.
