Why Some Teeth Require a Surgical Extraction

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Candice
Why Some Teeth Require a Surgical ExtractionA tooth extraction should be your last resort after exhausting all other options to save your teeth. This recourse comes in when dealing with a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. The damage may involve a tooth that is broken, fragile, cracked, or impacted. Sometimes you may have to extract your teeth due to overcrowding, trauma, diseases, or when they don't respond to crowning or root canal treatment. This is where surgical tooth extraction comes in to make the work easier and save other teeth.

Reasons Why Your Teeth Require Surgical Extraction

You can opt for a surgical tooth extraction if a significant part of your teeth is broken or missing. The remaining pieces may be extremely difficult to remove using other tooth extraction methods. A surgical extraction will be required to get rid of all other pieces that might cause damage to your mouth. Any fragile or cracked teeth can also be removed surgically to save them from getting fractured during the normal extraction.

Also, you can choose surgical extraction when dealing with teeth that have long, curved or large roots. These types of teeth pose many challenges due to their curved crooked or hooked roots. The use of excessive force to pull them out may cause bone damage or tooth breakage.
The same case applies to teeth with thin and fragile roots. Such roots are likely to break when using non-surgical methods to extract the affected teeth. So you will have to go for a surgical extraction method just in case you are dealing with teeth that have fragile roots.

Finally, you can turn to a surgical extraction option to safely take out impacted teeth. The three forms of impacted teeth are usually soft tissue impaction, partial-bony impaction, and full-bony impaction.
