Tooth and root extraction
If removal of a tooth is not successful or possible using conventional methods, the intervention of an oral surgeon is required. In some cases, it is necessary to extract the root of a tooth when either the root of an earlier extracted tooth remains in place, or because the teeth incline towards the root and constrict the area concerned.
Wisdom tooth extraction
There is often not enough space for wisdom teeth to come through, which can result in inflammation of the gums. Wisdom teeth are also prone to decay. Abnormal eruption of wisdom teeth can lead to crowding of the adjacent teeth and bite problems (malocclusion).
Extraction of impacted teeth
Sometimes teeth either completely or partially fail to emerge from the gums. This can lead to cysts and infections.
