Tooth extraction refers to the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the bone. It is usually used as last resort after other treatments such as crown or fillings have been ruled as unsuitable due to excessive damage to the tooth.
Tooth extraction is categorized as Simple extraction and surgical extraction. A simple extraction involves first loosening the teeth using an “elevator” instrument, followed by removal using a second instrument called a “forceps”. A surgical extraction is comparatively more complex and is usually performed by Dental surgeons.
