Surgical extractions are sometimes necessary for teeth that must be removed but cannot easily be accessed by the dentist. Like common extractions, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to make you comfortable during the procedure.
Surgical tooth extraction is a procedure that’s used for removing a tooth which consists of additional surgical steps that are not required during the routine extractions. A surgical extraction is when the dentist makes an incision on a section of the gum tissue in order to gain access to bone tissue and the tooth which lies underneath. The dentists may also need to trim away the bone tissue for getting a better view of the tooth. Next, the tooth will be cut into pieces so that it can be removed easily. It is difficult to remove teeth with multi-roots such as molars as they have curved, hooked, or crooked roots. This makes extraction complicated. Pulling these teeth out may need excessive forces that may cause bone or tooth breakage. This is when a surgical extraction is needed.
