Difficult Extractions

A past history of difficult tooth extractions, or fracture of a tooth below the gum during attempted extraction, usually requires a surgical approach to remove the tooth or tooth root from the jaw. In these situations general dentists may sometimes refer patients for this surgery. 
Benefits to the patient are having the surgery carried out by someone with extensive experience in this area. This usually makes it a more acceptable experience.
