Restoring your natural teeth with general dentistry is always our first goal at Marietta Dental Professionals. However, there are situations in which a tooth is simply beyond repair or it poses a threat to your oral health. In such cases, a tooth extraction may be needed. You can be confident that our dentists are highly skilled when it comes to removing a tooth. We use advanced techniques that reduce pain and conserve as much healthy tissue and bone as possible. Our East Cobb office is stocked with a full menu of relaxing amenities as well as sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease during your tooth extraction.
There are a variety of circumstances that demand a tooth extraction, including the following:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Impacted teeth
For your added convenience, Marietta Dental Professionals also offers tooth replacement for missing teeth. Our dentists are qualified to provide dental implants, dentures and bridges if needed. When appropriate, we encourage patients to replace an extracted tooth. Beyond poor aesthetics, missing teeth can cause misalignment, compromised chewing function and jaw bone atrophy.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The wisdom teeth represent the final set of molars to emerge, typically in the late teens to early twenties. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth complications are very common. Due to lack of jaw space, the wisdom teeth tend to grow in sideways, partially erupt or get impacted below the gum line. These are key reasons to remove these third molars before further harm is caused. At Marietta Dental Professionals, we will walk you through the entire procedure of wisdom teeth removal. It is a simple, straightforward oral surgery that involves minimal downtime for most patients. After your procedure, our dentists will carefully explain ways you can accelerate your recovery and reduce discomfort at home.
