For routine tooth extractions, instruments such as forceps and elevators are used. But sometimes a tooth, or a part of the tooth can be anchored deep in your bone and very difficult to extract (for example: when the roots are cracked, curved, or in the case of a wisdom tooth, complex extraction and impacted tooth). In order to remove such tooth or root it is necessary to surgically remove some of the bone that surrounds the tooth and prepare the access for the tooth removal.
The procedure is performed under the local anesthesia. The tooth is removed through the opening in the bone, the incisions are then closed up using sutures before a dressing is placed over the wound for protection. It takes about a week for a wound to heal, after that the stiches are removed and the bone regenerates by itself. Only after few months the bone defect can be filled by a new bone.
The process itself, although it may sound complicated and painful, is extremely simple and is performed under the local anesthesia and therefore is completely painless.
Please, follow the instructions after the procedure (you can download them here).
