      Default Cracked Molar Extraction

      I am scheduled for a molar exraction.

      It is half broken near gumline.

      My question is, is it easier to extract my tooth since it is cracked near gum line or much difficult?

      Most likely how long will it take for the extraction?

      Thank you very much for your time.

      Probably a bit easier. We should really have this as a FAQ

      Hard to give a time without seeing it, different dentists work at different speeds too. In my hands, I'd expect 30 secs to 2 mins for a routine extraction. Plus time for anaesthetic to work etc.

      I just had an extraction of a tooth which was broken near the gumline and it took the dentist about two mins. Easy peasy, I should have had it done alot earlier.

      Did yours hurt more or less than if you had the whole tooth removed? Cause I have the same situation and I keep postponing it thinking they will have to cut my gum to take the roots out

      i have had both a regular extraction of a molar, and a surgical extraction. i would say both options aren't too bad. when i had a regular extraction done, the molar underneath of it broke because of the force needed to get it out. the surgical extraction i got numbed and he sectioned it and cut it out. no force or pulling hard. i had a few stiches, but they weren't bad either.
      i would say they healed at about the same rate. so really..i wouldn't worry too much about it. just let the dentist do what they think is the best way.
      good luck!

      Hopefully it should be improving by tomorrow. Are you taking painkillers on a nice regular routine? Alternating paracetamol and ibuprofen every 3-4 hrs (when you're awake) is pretty effective.

      I just came back from a week of operating in the Dominican Republic operating on patients with the University of Florida medical school and I spent the majority of my time removing broken and decayed roots. Any experienced dentist can manage this extraction without a significant problem.
