Surgical & Simple Tooth Extractions

A surgical extraction is a procedure that is used to remove a tooth that cannot be easily removed with forceps. This type of extraction is necessary when the tooth is impacted, ankylosed, severely decayed, fractured or has not fully erupted from the gums. Simple extraction is a procedure that is used to remove a tooth that can be easily accessed and removed with forceps. This type of extraction is usually used for teeth that have become loose due to periodontal disease or trauma. Both procedures are necessary when tooth is infected and has poor prognosis for restoration to ensure the patient’s oral health and hygiene.
