Surgical Treatment

A surgical extraction – this is a more complex procedure, which is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not erupted in the mouth. The oral surgeon will make a small incision into your gum to surgically remove the broken tooth or impacted wisdom tooth. A non-restorable lower molar tooth with a curved (dilacerated) root is less traumatically removed if the tooth is divided into pieces. Whether or not a surgical access flap is required to do this, the procedure is considered surgical if the tooth is sectioned into pieces.
