Minimally Traumatic Extraction Techniques

Eduardo R Lorenzana

The use of implant-supported dental prostheses to replace missing teeth has resulted in a renewed focus on extraction techniques, particularly in the esthetic zone.

Removing the tooth without damaging the alveolar socket can facilitate post-operative healing, ridge preservation techniques and subsequent implant placement.

This module will describe the techniques to remove a hopeless tooth with implant placement in mind.

After completing this ITI Academy Module, you should be able to…

  • recognize factors that may lead to tooth extraction
  • describe the biological effects of tooth loss on the dento-alveolar process
  • select the most appropriate minimally traumatic extraction technique to remove a tooth
