Tooth is extracted in the conditions where it is severely damaged and can not be saved from root canal treatment. When a patient comes to us for severe dental pain and tooth can not be saved we advice to extract the tooth. Proper clinical and radio graphical examination is performed, status of nerves and periodontium is observed and the extraction is performed.

Usually extractions are devided into two types :

  1. Surgical Extraction :

    Performed surgically, usually done in wisdom tooth/3rd molar cases. Adjacent bone cutting is performed and the extraction is done.

  2. Normal Extraction :

    Usually done for mobile teeth/ fractured teeth/ majorly decayed teeth / for orthodontic treatment purpose.
