Remove Crown of Wisdom Tooth

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.
