Minimally Traumatic Extraction Techniques

Tooth replacement by implant therapy has resulted in a renewed focus on extraction techniques. With subsequent implant placement in mind, the aim is to remove the tooth without causing damage to the alveolar socket. This Learning Pathway will discuss techniques for removing an untreatable tooth with a minimally traumatic approach.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • explain the relevance of a minimally traumatic tooth extraction approach to implant placement
  • discuss different techniques for facilitating minimally traumatic extraction and reducing risk of damage to the alveolar socket
