Extractions are the removal of teeth from the mouth and are performed for a number of reasons including tooth decay, impacted or problematic wisdom teeth, or to make room for orthodontic treatment. Simple extraction are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, usually under local anesthetic. Surgical extractions will involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed because they have fractured under the gum line or have not erupted fully. Surgical extractions usually require an incision and removal of some bone around the teeth to achieve this.
