Hello doctor,

Is there a technologically advanced way of extracting the teeth? Is it advisable to extract the teeth of an 80-year-old? Kindly suggest.



Welcome to

The only successful technique is one with hands and forceps that all dentists follow. Other than that is not practiced widely. You can get knowledge from a multi-specialty clinic. Yes, it is advisable to remove the teeth of an 80-year-old patient, but if there is any need or situation to remove them. Losing eyesight is a myth. No one loses vision. There are more than 1000 people who get their teeth removed. Ask your consulting dentist about the nerves that connect teeth if any doubt comes. Because no eye nerve connects to teeth. I hope this helps you.

Thank you.
