Surgical Extraction is the removal of a Tooth from the mouth. There are many reasons why an Extraction may be necessary. The most common reasons for Tooth Extraction is that the Tooth has been damaged beyond the point of being Restorable by severe Tooth decay or advanced Periodontal Disease that has destroyed the bone that holds the tooth in. Surgical Extractions are also frequently performed on Patients who require more space in the Mouth for Orthodontic Treatments.
Often, Surgical Extractions are performed on Teeth that are impacted, which means they fail to erupt through the Gums. This is commonly problematic with Wisdom Teeth.

Is wisdom tooth extraction painful?
You shouldn’t feel any pain as your wisdom teeth are removed because the area will be numb. However, if you do feel pain during the procedure, tell your dentist or oral surgeon so they can give you more anaesthetic.
What’s the difference between a tooth extraction and a surgical tooth extraction?
There are two main types of dental extraction, simple extraction and surgical extraction. Simple dental extraction is used to remove teeth that can be seen and are easily accessible, whereas surgical dental extraction typically requires an incision into the connective tissue to gain access to the tooth to be removed.
How soon can I return to school or work after wisdom tooth removal?
Unless the patient develops post-operative complications, most people can return to work (sedentary jobs) or school within 2-3 days of the extraction. For jobs that require more vigorous activity, a little additional recovery time may be needed.
