Oral Surgery Extraction Service

You may think tooth extraction is only meant for people who don’t practice good oral hygiene. In reality, however, it could very well be recommended for a whole host of reasons, such as crowding, misalignment, and extensive decay.

It’s not uncommon, for instance, for people to undergo oral surgery extraction after an accident or an injury, which could render useless all fillings and crowns.

In situations where a tooth is simply irreparable, tooth extraction may be your only recourse. This could happen when experiencing crowding, decay or trauma. Even so, however, the process of extraction can be simple or surgical—most commonly in the case of impacted wisdom teeth.

When the tooth is visible above the gum line, and the dentist only relies on forceps to pull it out, it is considered a simple extraction. On the other hand, when your gum tissue or bone needs to be removed before operating on the tooth, it is deemed a surgical extraction—followed by stitches and medication for healing and recovery.

Other forms of oral surgical extractions may include removing broken down teeth, root tips, or gum tissue due to gum disease, which may infect your tooth and the surrounding area.

Simple and surgical extractions can have lasting effects on your dental health.
