Keeping your teeth is the best possible outcome of oral health and wellness, but All About Family Dentistry understands that it isn’t always possible. Our professionals will do everything possible to try to keep regular adult teeth as strong and healthy as possible until an extraction becomes a final necessity to preserve oral health. Tooth extraction is a simple and easy process, one that can occur in a number of situations. A tooth extraction is necessary when one of the following happens:
Tooth extraction is simple. Following an initial consultation where all other options are exhausted, a dentist applies a local anesthetic to the mouth. Using professional tools, the tooth is pulled out of its socket and fully removed. It is common to feel some pressure, but no pain, during the procedure. Once the tooth is removed, the anesthetic is allowed to wear off, and you are given instructions on how to care for the site of extraction.
Once the tooth has been removed, it’s important to meet again with the dentist to discuss how the tooth can be replaced. The most common procedure will be the creation and placement of a dental implant to restore full oral function and health. We strongly recommend making an appointment, so you no longer have to live with pain or discomfort. We can be found at our office at 12186 HWY 92 Suite# 109 in Woodstock, Georgia.
