What is atraumatic extraction?

An Atraumatic Extraction is the process of extracting a hopless tooth in the most delicate and conservative technique, this includes using special instruments that sever the tooth's attachment to its socket. Grafting the residual socket with bone replacement material and a membrane is a common procedure, helping preserve the residual supporting bone.

What are the benefits of an atraumatic extraction?

Atraumatic Extractions help preserve both bone and soft tissues that surrounded the tooth. This ensures a better esthetic and functional restoration. 

In case of future implant replacement, atraumatic extractions accompanied with bone grafting ensure the presence of a good qualtiy and adequate quantity of bone. This allows for a higher success rate and longevtiy of the implant without the need of further Ridge Augmenation or Sinus Lift.

In case of future crown and bridge restoration, atraumatic extractions accompanied with bone grafting allow for more esthetic and hygienic restorations by eliminating the concavity in bone and tissues that accompany extractions.
