Whether you are suffering from problematic wisdom teeth that are erupting painfully or infected teeth that are putting the rest of your smile at risk, Dr. Atari and the team at Smileplicity Dentistry can help with gentle extractions. During your consultation at our Raleigh office, Dr. Atari will assess your tooth to determine whether an extraction is necessary, and if so, your treatment will be virtually painless with local anesthetic. Call us today to learn more about the extraction process!
Tooth extractions are most commonly used to remove wisdom teeth because they can cause issues with surrounding teeth if they erupt improperly. Wisdom teeth typically come in when a patient is in their late teens or early twenties.. And if you are experiencing discomfort or pain near your molars and jaw, you should consider an assessment from Dr. Atari. She can determine whether your wisdom teeth should be extracted to help you avoid damage down the road.
Tooth extractions may also be required if a tooth is infected, or has been loosened or damaged due to gum disease. An extraction may also be recommended if the tooth has been severely damaged or impacted due to oral trauma. If you suspect that you may have a tooth that needs to be removed, give our Raleigh team a call today to set up a consultation.
If your tooth is infected or severely damaged by decay, you will notice the following symptoms: extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, a severe toothache, and pain when chewing. When bacteria penetrates tooth enamel, it can affect tender nerves in the pulp tissue and cause an infection. Dr. Atari will always try to save an infected tooth with root canal therapy, but if the damage is too severe, an extraction may be the best option to remove the decay.
If you had one of your teeth extracted, Smileplicity Dentistry offers replacement options that will look and feel natural. We offer beautiful dental implants that will last a lifetime, and full or partial dentures that will restore your smile and your confidence. Dr. Atari will work with you to help you decide which restorative option is right for your needs and your budget.
