Simple dental extraction involves the removal of teeth that are visible in the mouth.
Impacted tooth extraction involves the removal of teeth that are not easily accessible inside the mouth. This may be because they have not erupted through the gum completely or they have been fractured under the gum line. This kind of extraction requires surgery and should preferably be done by Oral Surgeons only.
All the tooth extraction is the last thing we recommend but in certain cases this is the only option we are left with. At THE DENTAL MASTERS, we ensure painless tooth extraction of teeth by following required protocols and getting the surgery done by specialist MDS Oral Maxillofacial surgeon only.
