Dental Extractions and Oral Surgery Procedures

Why Might You Need an Extraction

The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay.

There are additional reasons for tooth extraction:

  1. Simple Extractions
    Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, usually under local anesthetic, and require only the use of instruments to elevate and/or grasp the visible portion of the tooth.

  2. Simple Extractions
    Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gumline or because they have not erupted fully.


A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

To explain this as easily as possible, the abutment teeth are reduced in size to accommodate the material to be used to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in a correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth.

There are different types of bridges, depending on how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Conventionally fixed bridges are made using porcelain fused to high noble metal; however, they can be made of all porcelain or composite resin.
