Tooth extraction is linked to dentists who perform oral surgery. Teeth that are embedded in bone (eg, impacted or wisdom teeth) must be removed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is trained for 4-6 years after obtaining a dental or medical degree.
Compared with removal of an impacted tooth, tooth extraction appears to be a relatively simple technical procedure. However, both tooth extraction and removal of an impacted tooth must be performed in accordance with surgical principles that have evolved from both basic research and centuries of trial and error. Tooth extraction leaves a surgical wound, which has to heal.

Accordingly, a basic understanding of wound healing is essential for performing this surgical procedure in the oral cavity.
Like any other minor surgical procedure, tooth extraction requires careful medical evaluation of the patient. Patients with diabetes, hypertension, renal disease, thyroid disease, adrenal disease, or other organ disease must be treated and their disease controlled before tooth extraction. Because the oral cavity is full of microorganisms, any surgical procedure in this area may give rise to postoperative infection, especially in immuno compromised patients.

Before, during, and after tooth extraction, pain management is an important issue. Medical, surgical, and legal considerations exist; for example, removing the wrong tooth is malpractice, as is breaking the jaw during extraction or causing paresthesia after extracting the mandibular third molar in close proximity to the inferior alveolar nerve without proper informed consent.

Teeth are important for aesthetic purposes and for maintaining masticatory function. Accordingly, all efforts to avoid tooth extraction must be exhausted before the decision is made to proceed with removal of a tooth. Nevertheless, there are circumstances in which it is clear that a tooth must be extracted, such as the following:
• A tooth that cannot be restored, because of severe caries
• A mobile tooth with severe periodontal disease, pulp necrosis, or periapical abscess, for which root canal treatment is required that the patient cannot afford (or for which endodontic treatment failed)
• Overcrowding of teeth in the dental arch, resulting in orthodontic deformity [1]
Other conditions that may necessitate extraction include the following:
• Malposed teeth causing soft tissue trauma to the cheek
• Cracked teeth from trauma
• Supernumerary teeth
• Teeth adjacent to a pathologic lesion that must be excised
Pregnancy is a relative contraindication in the first or last trimester; extractions are deferred until after childbirth. Hemophiliac patients and those with severe platelet disorders or other bleeding diatheses should undergo extraction only after these coagulopathies have been corrected. Caution and extreme care are required before extraction in patients on long-term corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, or cancer chemotherapeutic agents.
