Tooth extractions are a dental procedures involving the removal of a teeth from their sockets. Simple tooth extraction is usually performed on visible, fully erupted teeth with straightforward roots. After administering local anesthesia, the dentist loosens the tooth using specialized instruments and then gently removes it.
Surgical tooth extraction is a more complex procedure necessary for impacted teeth, broken teeth, or teeth with extensive decay. It might involve making an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth, potentially removing bone around the tooth, and sometimes sectioning the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.
