What is a tooth extraction?
A tooth extraction is the complete removal of a tooth from its place in the bone socket. There are many reasons why a tooth must be extracted. Most commonly, a tooth becomes infected and has died. In order to prevent the infection and decay from spreading, it is necessary for the tooth to be removed and the site cleaned. Teeth may also be removed if your smile is overcrowded or if gum disease has caused the tooth to become loose and it cannot be saved. Our caring dental team will gently remove the tooth while the area is numbed with local anesthesia. Following the removal of the tooth, Dr. Tracy Dillon or Dr. Danielle Greene can go over your options for complete smile restoration.
We understand how important a full smile is. That is why we provide multiple restorative dentistry options after an extraction — from anchoring bridges and dental implants to creating custom dentures. With the help of our modern dental lab, Marietta Dental and Implant Center is able to offer patients quality, affordable dentures and appliances.
