There are several reasons why teeth need to be removed surgically, and the most common is that they have not broken completely or cannot be pulled in the usual way. The surgeon then removes the tooth and all inflammatory tissue around it. This is both more comfortable for you as a patient and better for your dental health. The procedure takes place with local anesthesia and is usually completely painless for you.
Surgical removal of teeth takes somewhat longer than regular tooth extraction, and some more discomfort must be expected for the following days.
