Oral Surgery:


The following pictures demonstrate an upper fourth pre-molar extraction on a canine:

The extraction is done by sectioning the tooth with a high speed burr and removing it.  The tooth socket is flushed with dilute chlorhexidine and a gingival flap is sutured over the socket.  You can expect some blood – tinged saliva for a few days due to the extraction. The sutures dissolve on their own. 

(the pictures may be graphic to some)
