A tooth is extracted when no other dental treatment can save it. The common reasons for extraction are grossly decayed teeth, cracked tooth, loose tooth, impacted tooth, and before radiation therapy or chemotherapy or to create room before getting braces. There are two types of extraction, namely simple and surgical extraction. A simple extraction is done by loosening the tooth with the help of an elevator, and the tooth is removed with forceps. A surgical extraction is done if the outer portion of the tooth is completely broken (root stumps) or if the tooth is impacted (still not erupted). Here, a dental surgeon makes a small incision on the gums, and if necessary, the surrounding bone is drilled, and the tooth is extracted. Both types of extractions are done under local or general anesthesia, so the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure.
