Our goal at Johns Creek Dental Studio is to help our patients retain and maintain their natural teeth whenever possible. Unfortunately, there are times when the best solution to protect a patient’s health or smile is to remove a troubled tooth. If a tooth is severely diseased, damaged or causing misalignment problems, it may need extraction. When you need tooth extractions, you can trust our team to make the procedure as painless and stress-free as possible at our clinic in Alpharetta, GA.
There are a wide variety of reasons a tooth may need to be removed. In some cases, like with wisdom teeth, tooth extraction can be preventive. Sometimes there is not enough room for all the teeth to fit comfortably in the mouth, and removing a tooth can allow for better alignment. If a tooth is growing incorrectly or not emerging the right direction, removing it may be the right solution.
Other existing teeth may need to be removed due to decay, disease or damage. If there is severe infection, decay or structural damage, the tooth may be beyond repair and require removal. Dr. Parikh at Johns Creek Dental Studio will always look at all options for saving a damaged or diseased tooth, but he may recommend removal in severe cases.
Comfortable Tooth Removal
No one wants to undergo a tooth extraction, but it does not need to be painful or stressful. If the procedure is carefully planned, it can be performed quickly and painlessly. Dr. Parikh and our dental team ensure patients are relaxed and comfortable during tooth extractions. The tooth will be completely numbed and, in most cases, the tooth can be removed in less than a half hour. Once the tooth is removed, we will ensure the surgical site is disinfected and packed to allow quick healing.
Tooth extractions can be necessary to protect your oral and overall health. If you need a tooth removed, trust our team at Johns Creek Dental Studio to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Contact our office in Alpharetta, GA, to schedule your tooth removal consultation.
