Dentists are responsible for providing the most comprehensive care to patients as possible. While dentists may not feel comfortable with every extraction case, exodontia is one of the most basic needs among patient populations. This lecture will serve to educate, empower and encourage dentists in exodontia.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • identify when to retain and when to extract teeth.
  • recognize when to refer a patient and when to treat the patient in-office. 
  • refute four common myths that often discourage providers from delivering immediate treatment.
  • identify conditions that warrant antibiotic therapy either pre- or post-operatively and those that don’t.
  • recognize when to remove teeth non-surgically and when surgery is needed.
  • identify both standard and surgical armamentarium/procedures used to atraumatically remove various maxillary and mandibular teeth.
