Tooth extraction is a dental procedure performed to remove damaged or loose teeth from their sockets. Performed by an oral surgeon, the procedure uproots teeth using dental elevators and forceps. The extraction site is numbed using a general anesthetic to avoid any kind of discomfort. There are two types of tooth extraction procedures:
1. A simple extraction
A simple extraction is performed when the tooth extraction does not involve complications like a broken tooth structure, impacted teeth or teeth with long and twisted roots.
2. A surgical extraction
