Clinical Use of Periotomes: By severing the PDL prior to extraction, the surrounding tissue is subjected to less trauma, and in many cases, allows for immediate placement of an implant. To use a periotome, place the blade of the instrument down into the sulcus, severing the PDL. Lift the blade out of the sulcus, and repeat the process, moving circumferentially around the tooth. This will sever the PDL except for where it connects at the most apical part of the tooth. Afterwards, use a periosteal elevator and extraction forceps in the usual manner.

If the dentist feels that the tooth is in danger of breaking while elevating the tooth, Dr. Howard Farran, leading clinician and editor of DentalTown Magazine, recommends that the dentist take a five-minute break from the procedure. During the break, swelling of the tissue will act like a hydraulic pump and will help to lift the tooth from the socket, usually leading to a much easier extraction
