Oral Surgery

One of the most common oral surgical procedures is tooth extraction. Depending on the condition and positioning of the tooth, extractions are categorized into two primary types: simple and complex



Extraction is the process of removing a tooth or tooth fragments from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. It becomes necessary when a tooth is damaged beyond repair, either due to decay, trauma, or disease


Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth and have some mobility. The dentist first numbs the area with a local anesthetic and will gently loosen the tooth


When the tooth can break off at the gum line, and has no mobility. It is necessary for severely decayed teeth when the restoration is not feasible
