Abstract1.1 Aim:To assess the various methods of extrusion of tooth
1.2 Objective:To assess different applications of extrusion in every aspect of
operative treatment. Extrusion is widely used in orthodontic therapy, This article
focuses on the use of extrusion in other aspects as well.
1.3 Background:Introduction For many years, the removal of bone or gingival
tissues has been the most common method used for crown-lengthening surgery.
This surgical procedure usually causes an uneven contour of the gingival margin
in the anterior region. In addition, as fear of pain is one of the major problems in
dentistry, patients often reject this traumatic surgery. In recent years, as an
alternative to such a highly invasive technique, mini screws have been used as
temporary anchorage devices (TAD) for several orthodontic tooth movements
including forced eruption. However, there are other methods developed in recent
1.4 Reason:Hence, this comprehensive literature review aims at understanding the
various methods of extrusion of teeth.
