COMPLICATIONS WITH THE TOOTH BEING EXTRACTED 

Root Fracture

The most common complication associated with the tooth being extracted is fracture of its roots. Long, ed, divergent roots that lie in dense bone are most likely to be fractured. The main method of preventing

Prevention of Root and Displacement Fracture

1. Always plan for root fracture.
2. Use surgical (i.e., open) extraction if high probability of fracture.
3. Do not use strong ‘apical force on.broken root.

fracture of roots is to perform an open extraction technique and to remove bone to decrease the amount of force necessary to remove the’ tooth (Box 11-2). Recovery of the fractured root with a surgical approach is discussed’
in Chapter 8.
