This clinical report describes the use of an "atraumatic" vertical extraction system to facilitate the restorative treatment of a tooth that would otherwise be considered unrestorable because of subgingival caries. Minimally invasive surgical root extrusion was undertaken using the Benex extraction system, which can provide controlled tooth extrusion with minimal deformation of the bone socket. A carious endodontically treated mandibular premolar was extruded to provide routine restorative treatment and endodontic retreatment.
