Tooth extraction at the oral surgery specialist in Munich – when a tooth has to be removed
The key things to know about having a tooth extracted
When is it a good idea to have a tooth taken out?
Wherever possible, the tooth’s natural structure should be preserved. This is the core treatment principle at our practice. However, under certain circumstances, extracting the tooth may be the best option for ensuring long-term health and freedom from pain when chewing. These include wisdom teeth, teeth with severe periodontal problems and fractures with fault lines, as well as teeth badly damaged by caries or similar issues. The best way to decide whether a tooth can be saved or whether it is better to have it removed is to look at the prognosis of the alternatives. We would be very happy to advise you at our dental practice in Munich.
What does tooth extraction involve?
Before the procedure, we will advise you in detail about all the options and take X-rays for precise planning. The experienced specialists in our oral surgery department will carry out this procedure with a steady hand and state-of-the-art technology, removing the tooth with the utmost caution and care. The procedure itself is usually carried out under local anaesthetic but can be performed using twilight anaesthesia (conscious sedation) or general anaesthetic if desired or required.
What do I have to be careful about after having a wisdom tooth extracted?
As part of the extraction procedure, our experts will explain what you need to do after your operation. Here you can find a comprehensive compilation of rules for post-operative behaviour. You may not be able to drive a vehicle after a procedure. If your operation involves anaesthetic, you will need someone to accompany you home safely. If you have any questions, we will of course be happy to discuss them with you in person.

Tooth Removal Munich
Tooth Removal Munich
The extraction of a tooth is one of the oldest procedures in dentistry. In the early stages of medicine, a damaged tooth was oftentimes simply extracted. Today, thanks to modern dentistry, we know that the natural state of the teeth should be preserved wherever possible. The priority of tooth conservation is therefore one of the central guiding principles of the entire practice Dr. Butz & Partner.
Reasons for tooth removal Munich
Even with serious problems like a necrotic dental root or severely malpositioned teeth, our Munich oral surgeons will take into account every possibility of preserving a tooth without exception. However, there are cases when even within modern dentistry, the best option to ensure a patient’s health and freedom from pain is the removal of the tooth. Some of these cases are:
- Wisdom teeth without possibility of unproblematic eruption due to lack of space
- Severe periodontal problems such as serious loss of stability without prospect of regeneration
- Severe fractures with fracture lines which make tooth preservation impossible
- Teeth which cause progessive infections and directly compromise the health of adjacent teeth
- Diseases of the pulp without possibility of lasting endodontic therapy
- Teeth with an otherwise high degree of degeneration (e.g. very advanced caries)
- In some cases, before other treatments (e.g. chemotherapy, organ transplantation with immunosuppression)
- Functionless root fragments
