concurrently to move the tooth either in the bucco-palatal/lingual direction, or to rotate it. 88 Multi-rooted teeth are usually delivered in a buccal direction, as lingual or palatal movement of the forceps is limited by the other jaw. Single-rooted teeth with round root cross-sections, such as upper incisors or lower premolars, can be rotated and then withdrawn vertically. For these forces to be successful in removing rather than fracturing a tooth, the clinician must develop an awareness of

Bone chips and bone substitutes can be used if they can be protected from occlusal forces and supported by membranes and/or titanium mesh. 186 Fig 9-12 (a) Anterior maxilla – buccal concavity, limited inter-arch space.

Introduction The successful practice of surgery is dependent upon the proper use of drugs. The most obvious example is the provision of anaesthesia during surgical procedures. This chapter will consider the following: • pain control • anxiety control • antibacterial drug use • other agents used in minor oral surgery. 65 Pain Control Pain control is important at two stages of surgery. These are: • operative pain control • post-operative pain control. Operative Pain Control The practice of pain
