Simple & Surgical Extractions:
Dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth
from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough
tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable.
The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or
decay. There are additional reasons for tooth extraction:
- Severe tooth decay or infection (acute or chronic alveolar abscess). Despite the reduction in worldwide prevalence
of dental caries, still it is the most common reason for extraction of (non-third molar) teeth with up to two thirds
- Extra teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in.
- Severe gum disease which may affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of teeth..
- In preparation for orthodontic treatment (braces).
- Teeth in the fracture line.
- Teeth which cannot be restored endodontically.
- Fractured teeth.
- Supenumerary, supplementary or malformed teeth.
- Cosmetic teeth of poor appearance, unsuitable for restoration.
- Receiving radiation to the head and neck may require extraction of teeth in the field of radiation..
- Reduced cost compared to other treatments.
- Extractions are often categorized as "simple" or "surgical".
