The Daily Extraction: Upper Right First Premolar

Removed #5 with 151 and root tip with #35 endo file

In this extraction, Dr. Tommy Murph encounters a common problem with the spindly roots of an upper first and sometimes second premolar. Watch how after delivering 90% of the tooth with a 151 forcep, he returns with an endodontic file to deliver the remaining root tip.

Here is the pre-operative radiograph (X-ray):

And, the extracted tooth and root tip:

Enjoy your daily extraction.

Dr. Murph is a South Carolina dentist who practices general dentistry who really excels in extracting teeth. For patients in the Myrtle Beach area, I can heartily recommend Tommy as YOUR dentist.

For dentists, Dr. Murph has a number of resources for you in extracting teeth, including one on one courses in his office.

Dr. Murph's website is here and his extraction manuals are here on e-Bay.
