Types of Tooth Removals

  • Simple Extraction: This method is used to remove the visible tooth. Your dentist will simply numb the area using an anesthetic and they apply pressure to the tooth using forceps to free the tooth from the anchor.
  • Sectional Extraction: Sectional extraction is conducted when a single tooth has multiple roots. The dentist, here, needs to separate the root and remove them one by one for extracting the tooth.
  • Surgical Extraction: Used when the tooth is either not visible or is covered by the gum. The surgeon here makes an incision in the gum followed by usage of a drill to remove the gum and bone tissue. The gum is then pulled back, exposing the tooth and root, where afterward a simple extraction method will be used.
