Complicated Tooth Extraction
A simple tooth extraction is referred to the procedure of removing a tooth which has an upright position and the process of extruding it is considered to be “simple”.
A complex tooth extraction will encompass all the other types of extractions wherein the process is not as straightforward as prying on a tooth and pulling it out. In fact, teeth have a myriad ways to position themselves and in order to take them out many times surgery is needed.
Even simple tooth extractions might end up as complex ones if, for example a decayed tooth is being pulled out but it cracks and part of the root is left in the jaw.
A well trained dentist is well prepared to deal with these situations and for this reason, once the tooth is pulled out the first thing they do is to check that the tooth came out completely.
