Routine Extraction is an extraction of erupted tooth or exposed root that do not require extensive surgical work. This depends on the tooth and it’s current state. The procedure involves luxating the tooth/root with elevators and/or forceps and includes routine removal of tooth structure, minor smoothing of socket bone, and closure, as necessary.
Pediatric Extraction is an extraction of coronal remnants of deciduous tooth (baby tooth). This is a removal of soft tissue-retained coronal remnants. Normally not requiring sutures or extensive postoperative care.

This includes cutting of gingiva and bone, removal of tooth structure, minor smoothing of socket bone and closure.
