Case description

Tooth extractions are the most common surgical procedure performed in the U.S., and while the majority of extractions are straightforward, this procedure can present with challenges — and even the most well-planned extractions can encounter complications during the procedure. Join Dr. Ghazal Mahjoubi, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, for an insightful look at evidence-based case planning strategies that lead to predictable extraction outcomes, and how cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) aids in the overall treatment planning process. Dr. Mahjoubi will also review: • The most common indicators for tooth extraction, including caries lesions, periodontal disease and overcrowded, impacted or fractured teeth • Complications that may strike during an extraction, including dry socket, infection and nerve damage — and guidance for managing each one • Factors to consider when evaluating an extraction, as well as indicators for referring the case to an oral surgeon • A step-by-step procedural walk-through, along with several challenging case reviews
