Extraction/Third molar Extraction


Extraction of Teeth

A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache.


Extraction of wisdom teeth/third molar extraction

Sometimes wisdom teeth are impacted (stuck and unable to grow normally into the mouth) and may cause recurrent infections of the gum (pericoronitis).

Hence, the decison to extract wisdom teeth become of utmost importance as they can harm the surounding teeth and gum tissue.
