A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache. Sometimes wisdom teeth are impacted and may cause recurrent infections of the gum. An atraumatic extraction is a minimally invasive dental technique that causes minimal damage to the bone and surrounding teeth.
