That would be the full mouth extraction.

Bonus points are awared if you're doing a bronx prophy during your residency on somebody YOUNGER than you are!

I'm sure every OMS resident has done many of these. Now if you're talking #1 through 32, that's a bit tougher to come by.

I did a couple of full mouth extractions in school... there were no more than 10 teeth in each case. One case did involve 20 teeth although they were all periodontally involved. I also saw a patient who was around my age (28) who I treatment planned FME and a complete upper and lower denture. That was probably the first time I've ever unintentionally made a grown man cry, last I heard, he was actually scheduled to follow through with it. So sad.
