The maxillary 4th premolar and 1st molar are common teeth that are fractured, thus requiring either surgical removal or root canal therapy. These teeth are very difficult to extract due to the complex nature of being 3-rooted and also the close proximity to the maxillary sinus. Therefore, care and detail are important. Leaving behind root tip remnants is MALPRACTICE so making sure you perform this correctly is imperative. Videos will be used to show the proper way to surgically remove these cheek teeth, as well as the PROPER instruments needed to be successful.
