  7. Surgical Extractions


There are two forms of tooth extractions: 1. Simple dental extraction involves the removal of teeth that are visible in the mouth.  Typically these teeth are removed due to severe bone loss, mobility or tooth decay. 2. Surgical dental extraction involves the removal of teeth that are not easily accessible inside the mouth. This may be because they have not erupted through the gum completely or they have been fractured under the gum line. They could also be more difficult to remove due to extensive decay or previous root canal therapy.

There are a few reasons to extract a tooth.

In this case, it is necessary to make an incision into the connective tissue surrounding the tooth to gain access to it for extraction. In many cases of surgical dental extraction, the tooth may need to be fragmented into several pieces to allow it be removed.

If a patient is interested in having an implant placed to replace the tooth to be removed, a surgical extraction is important as it will help to preserve the bony walls around the tooth and allow more bone volume for implant placement.

What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
