A coronectomy is a procedure in which only the crown of a lower wisdom tooth is removed, leaving the root intact.
A coronectomy should be considered if the patient is trying to improve gum and tooth health in the back of the mouth while also trying to avoid potential numbness.
Patients should consider coronectomy if x-ray evidence shows the roots of the tooth are in close association with the nerve that supplies feeling to the lower lip and chin, and if removing the whole tooth may cause permanent damage to that nerve.
