1

refers to the removal of a tooth

exodontia

2

tooth is lying in the horizontal position, with its crown adjacent to another tooth

Horizontal impaction

3

tooth is lying in the horizontal position, with its side adjacent to another tooth

Transverse impaction

4

tooth is in an upright position, under or too close to an adjacent tooth

Vertical impaction

5

tooth is lying on an angle, with its crown facing toward its distal surface

Distoangular impaction

6

tooth is lying on an angle, with its crown facing toward its mesial surface

Mesioangular impaction

7

2 or more teeth are being extracted

multiple extraction

8

When all remaining teeth are removed

full mouth extraction

9

When a prosthetic appliance will be worn following dental extraction, the alveolar bone crests (tooth sockets) must be re-contoured and smoothed down to prepare for the appliance. This procedure is called

alveoplasty

10

blood clot in the tooth’s socket disintegrates resulting in inflammation, infection and pain. This condition is commonly called ‘dry socket”

alveolitis

11

pain that is caused by alveolitis

Alveoalgia

12

removal of a portion of the gingiva

Gingivectomy

13

reshaping and re-contouring repair of the gingivae

Gingivoplasty

14

surgical repair of the lip

Labioplasty

15

suturing of the lip

Cheilorrhaphy

16

surgical cutting into the lip

Cheilotomy

17

surgical removal of the frenum

Frenectomy

18

surgical removal of the uvula

Uvulectomy

19

cutting into and removing infected abscess material

Incision & Drainage (I&D

20

removing abnormal tissue for microscopic specimen examination. There are 3 main categories

Biopsy

21

removing a small section of abnormal tissue together with some nearby normal tissue

Incision biopsy

22

removing the entire abnormal tissue together with minimal normal tissue

Excision biopsy

23

scaling or scraping the abnormal tissue to obtain the specimen

Exfoliative biopsy

24

involve repair of a bone

osteoplasty

25

removal of portions of the alveolar bone, to shape and contour

Alveolectomy

26

removal of a tooth’s apex from the bone

Apicoectomy

27

excision into the apical surface of the tooth

Apicotomy

28

repair of a fracture (break) of the mandible or maxilla. The procedure is completed without cutting into or ‘opening’ any structures. An example would be ‘tooth wiring’

Closed reduction

29

repair of broken mandible or maxilla, involving incision into the tissues and bone. An example would be ‘bone plate’ (metal plate inserted into the bone)

Open reduction

30

___________ surgeon performs reductions

maxillofacial
