Coronectomy

Coronectomy before and after

In cases where the lower wisdom tooth is unusually close to the nerve that gives feeling to the lower lip, chin and teeth, a coronectomy may be indicated.  The crown (top portion of the tooth) is surgically removed and the roots are left behind to avoid damage to the nerve.
