Tooth extraction, multiple roots
Most of our teeth( incisions, canines, premolar) have a single root. However some of our premolars, molars and wisdom teeth have more than one root. When your tooth causes you a lot of pain, harms your health and we can not save it or restore it is better to remove it(extract). Teeth with multiple roots are well attached to the alveolar bone and usually take a bit more time to extract than single rooted teeth. It is done under local anaesthetic.
