Embedded Tooth Extraction
The embedded tooth extraction process is basically divided into two. With bone retention or mucosal retention. Extraction of teeth with bone retention or embedded in the bone is somewhat more difficult. There is no need for bone removal in teeth with only mucosal retention, that is, impacted under the gingiva.
It is very important to examine the radiographic data well in impacted tooth extractions. In order not to damage the surrounding anatomical tissues, preoperative radiographic data should be evaluated in three dimensions.
Although the duration of the operation varies in each case, it varies according to the position of the tooth, mouth opening, patient cooperation and the experience of the physician.
Impacted tooth extraction is a surgical procedure and it is recommended to be extracted by a maxillofacial surgeon.
