Types of Tooth Extraction

There are mainly 2 types of tooth extraction processes:

  • Simple Extraction Process: Simple extraction procedure is performed on those teeth that are loose and does not require any major sectioning or bone removal. Generally, our dentists do simple extractions with the help of local anaesthesia.
  • Surgical Extraction Process: Surgical extraction process is implemented on the teeth that are located out of reach. There might have been a tooth that has not been fully erupted or has been fractured. Our proficient dentists conduct the surgery with the help of local anaesthesia. The surgical process includes the procedures of bone removal, lifting or removal and folding back of a part or entire gum tissues for the sake of exposing the tooth.
