The process of tooth extraction involves removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. A tooth extraction is only performed when it is not feasible to repair the damaged tooth or in the case when the tissues and bones are completely damaged and have no scope to repair. The tooth is extracted after giving local anesthesia to the patient. A tool called Elevator is used to widen the gaps between teeth.
Tooth Extraction is done when:
2. Root Canal Surgery cannot be performed due to inappropriate condition.
3. Imperfect alignment becomes a barrier to Orthodontic treatment.
Steps performed for tooth extraction:
2. Once the tooth gets sufficiently loose it can be taken out with the forceps.
3. If the extraction process becomes strenuous an oral surgeon is consulted.
