Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that involves pulling the tooth out of its socket using special instruments.
Each extraction should be performed in atraumatic manner (i.e. so that tooth extraction led to as little trauma of both hard tissue, i.e. the bone, and soft tissue – gums, as possible). If the procedure is performed like this, it takes longer and requires more precision from the operator, as well as other specialist tools. As a result of that, the advantages of using this procedure significantly influence healing and the further state of surrounding tissues.
The more the tooth is destroyed by caries and inflammation, the harder the extraction.
