What is an Extraction?

If a tooth is broken or decayed, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other dental treatment. But when the tooth is too decayed to repair, it may need to be extracted – or removed – from the gap in the bone.

There are two types of extractions:

? Simple extraction – This procedure is performed on teeth that can be seen. To perform a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. The dentist then uses forceps to remove the tooth.

? Surgical extraction – This is a more complex procedure, which is used when a tooth breaks through the gums or fails to erupt. The surgeon will make a small incision in the gum to surgically remove the affected tooth or wisdom tooth.
