Surgical extrusion: A dental technique

Published:February 14, 2020DOI:


      This article describes a technique for surgically extruding severely compromised roots needing prosthetic rehabilitation. Unlike previously described approaches, the technique does not require advanced clinical skills or equipment, may reduce the risk of tooth or bone fracture during the luxation maneuvers, and does not seem to interfere with the alveolar socket healing process.
