Tooth extraction or tooth removal procedures are performed on embedded and impacted tooth or on wisdom tooth. Where removal of a non-impacted tooth is a relatively simple procedure surgical principles are applied for extraction of an impacted tooth. Wound healing of the oral cavity is essential after removal of the tooth.
Teeth perform both aesthetic and masticatory functions. Tooth extraction is an elective procedure when all other treatment modalities have failed to save the tooth. And then there are other situations that warrant imperative extraction of tooth such as:
Severe dental caries
Mobility of the tooth due to pulp necrosis and severe periodontal disease where root canal treatment is required
Resultant orthodontic deformity due to an overcrowded dental arch
Soft tissue trauma due to malposed teeth
An adjacent pathologic lesion forces the removal of the tooth
Tooth cracks due to trauma
Teeth on the fracture line
