Tooth extraction is the process of removal of tooth from its socket in the bone. A tooth extraction is prescribed generally when it is not feasible to repair the damaged tooth. It is also done in cases where the tissues and bones are completely damaged. The tooth is extracted after giving local anaesthesia to the patient. A dental tool named Elevator is used to widen the gaps between teeth.
Tooth extractions are generally done when:
2. Root Canal Surgery cannot be performed due to inappropriate condition.
3. Imperfect alignment becomes a barrier for Orthodontic treatment.
Steps performed while doing tooth extraction:
2. The tooth can be taken out with the help of forceps, once it becomes sufficiently loose.
3. An oral surgeon is consulted, if the extraction process becomes strenuous.
