Welcome to JustAnswer, and thank you for putting your trust in me!

There really is no absolute limit to the number of teeth that can be extracted in one treatment session that applies in all situations. This limit would be determined by the relative difficulty of the extractions, the stamina of the surgeon and the patient, and the location/distribution of the teeth being extracted.

For practical matters, though, it is usually customary to work in sections of the mouth rather than the entire mouth, as a matter of convenience, to allow the patient a remaining area that is not involved, to allow for more comfortable eating. However, there really is no absolute limit, and the number to be extracted can be decided as a collaborative decision between doctor and patient.

Hope this helps...
