COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Tooth extractions are the last option for saving teeth because we always try to save our patient’s tooth. However, it’s not always possible to save a tooth that’s badly damaged. If we need to perform a tooth extraction in Suwanee, we’ll strive to make you as comfortable as possible.
How Much Does a Dental Extraction Cost?
When you schedule your initial appointment at our office in Suwanee, a dentist will perform an examination. After that, you will be given a treatment plan and provided with a tooth extraction cost estimate. If you have dental insurance coverage, be sure to let us know beforehand as that may affect your out-of-pocket costs.
Why Would I Need a Surgical Extraction Instead of a Tooth Extraction?
When a tooth hasn’t fully erupted through the gum, you may need an oral surgeon to perform your tooth removal. Call us in Suwanee for more information.
What Are My Options Other Than an Extraction?
If one or more of your teeth are badly decayed or damaged or if you have periodontal disease, you may have no options other than having a tooth pulled. We always try to save our patients’ teeth. Unfortunately, tooth saving measures aren’t always sufficient to save the tooth and an extraction will provide better results.
Can Our Dentists Extract Cracked, Broken, or Badly Decayed Teeth?
If one or more of your teeth are cracked or broken, we may be able to perform an extraction. When you come into our office in Suwanee for your initial appointment, your dentist will determine the scope of work you need. At this time, your dentist will give you information about the extraction or suggest speaking with an oral surgeon. After your extraction procedure is complete, we can provide you with options for replacing your missing teeth.
Does My Child Need Baby Teeth Extracted?
Baby teeth will usually fall out on their own, but if they don’t, they can impede the growth of adult teeth. If a baby tooth has a large cavity that can’t be filled, we can extract it. If this is the case, call our office in Suwanee to schedule an appointment. Our dentists are skilled in pediatric dentistry.
Will I Need a Tooth Extraction If I Have Gum Disease?
If you have advanced periodontal disease, you may be in severe pain. You may be surprised to learn that having a tooth pulled can alleviate your pain. Call our office in Suwanee to schedule an appointment. We can also provide you with options for replacing your missing teeth.
Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth usually appear before a person reaches 30 years of age and they are the last set of molars to appear. Many people cannot accommodate additional teeth and the wisdom teeth can erupt only partially or not at all. Fully erupted wisdom teeth can cause crowding, inflammation, and infection. If you’re having problems with your wisdom teeth, call our office in Suwanee to schedule an appointment to have your wisdom teeth removed.
How Does Dental Crowding Occur?
When teeth lack sufficient room to grow in straight, they grow in crooked and crowded. If you have this problem, call our office in Suwanee to schedule an appointment for teeth extractions. Particularly if you intend to get braces, you need to have enough room in your jaw for the teeth to straighten.
Care Instructions for Tooth Removal
After your dentist has extracted your tooth, he or she will provide you with care instructions that should be followed carefully. The instructions will include steps to take should your extraction site become inflamed or swollen or if you experience any discomfort. Be sure to call us with any questions or concerns you may have about your tooth extraction healing.
How Long Is The Healing Time for a Dental Extraction?
After the first 24 hours, you can resume moderate activity, but nothing strenuous. Dental extraction healing time is different for each person after getting a tooth pulled. We hope your extraction site is healed within a week. If you’ve had oral surgery or had a molar removed, it may take longer than a week. Be sure to call our office in Suwanee if you have any issues or concerns about your healing process.
