The totally descriptive term of having all your remaining teeth extracted. Can be performed under a general anaesthetic or under local anaesthetic.

The only treatment option in patients whose remaining teeth are all mobile and unsalvageable due to advanced periodontal disease .
Replace with full upper and/or full lower denture. Immediately. The denture is whacked in as soon as the teeth come out, yes, with blood and all still clotting. Hence it is know as an immediate denture.
