What is Surgical Tooth Extraction?
When a tooth has not fully grown out of your gums but is slightly visible above the gums and your dentist cannot perform a simple tooth extraction, the dentist then performs a complicated procedure to extract the tooth which is known as Surgical Tooth Extraction. Your dental surgeon cuts a small incision in your gum and then removes your tooth and stitches your gum to close the wound and help it heal properly.
How long would tooth extraction take?
If one tooth has to be extracted, then the surgical tooth extraction may take about 20-40 mins. If more than one tooth is to be extracted then it will take extra 10-15 minutes per tooth depending on the location of the other tooth.
