What Happens During a Tooth Extraction?
What Are the Different Types of Tooth Extractions?
In this method, we will completely remove the tooth from its socket. This procedure is performed on a healthy tooth that is visible above your gums and has erupted through them. It is typically used for teeth that have completely erupted and do not require any removal of bone tissue or sectioning of the tooth.
A surgical extraction is used when there is decay inside the cavity or when there are complications with the bone around the tooth that prevents us from completely removing it. Surgical extractions are also used for wisdom teeth removal when they are impacted below the gum line. The procedure involves making a small incision in your gums to reach the impacted tooth and pulling it out using forceps or other dental instruments.
