Extractions and Wisdom Teeth Removal in Kansas City Missouri
Tooth extraction may be necessary in order to prevent dental infection from spreading to gums and other teeth. The process is done with the help of local or general anesthesia. It may be a simple procedure where elevators and forceps are used to pull out the tooth. In some cases a surgery may be necessary to carefully extract the tooth which is a threat. The dentist may remove certain gum tissues and bone to be able to remove the tooth. Extraction of an impacted wisdom tooth may also involve sectioning of the tooth structure. Apart from wisdom teeth extraction there can be other complex conditions which require oral surgery. Some examples are teeth with curved roots, cracked tooth and broken tooth.
