Description Of Tooth Extraction

Posted on 11/21/2022 by Dr. Christianne Lee
Description Of Tooth ExtractionTooth extraction is the process of detaching teeth from their dental pockets (attachment) in the alveolar bone. Extractions are normally conducted on a patient for various reasons, the most common one being the removal of a decayed tooth to prevent it from further spreading to the gums. It can be done in two ways which are surgical and simple extraction.

Simple Tooth Extraction

Simple extractions are performed on visible teeth in the mouth, normally with the patient sedated, and require only the use of instruments to hoist and handle the visible portion of the tooth. Typically, the tooth is lifted with a lift, and explicit tooth developments (such as shaking the tooth to and fro) are performed with dental forceps to grow the tooth attachment. When the periodontal tendon is broken and the supporting alveolar bone is sufficiently augmented, the tooth can be extracted. When teeth are extracted with forceps, a slow, consistent strain is applied with controlled force.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

Surgical extraction includes the evacuation of teeth that will not be quickly gotten to or eliminated through basic extraction, for example, because they have broken under the gum or because they have not emitted completely, for example, an affected insight tooth. [1] Careful extractions often necessitate a cut. A careful extraction may involve hoisting the delicate tissues covering the tooth and bone, as well as removing a portion of the overlying and surrounding jaw bone with a drill or, less commonly, an osteotomy. To facilitate tooth expulsion, the tooth may occasionally be divided into different pieces.
