Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, unexpected events or unfortunate circumstances can alter that. When a tooth extraction is necessary, you can trust Elegant Smiles for an easy, painless general dentistry experience. In fact, we make your comfort a top priority at our Brookhaven office. Our dentists use advanced techniques to remove your tooth while providing modern anesthetics and sedation dentistry to eliminate your discomfort. We perform tooth extractions for both children and adults.
There are many reasons that a tooth needs to be removed. If one of our dentists recommends an extraction, it is because your oral health depends on it. We offer tooth extractions for the following situations:
- Extensive decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Severe Infection
- Orthodontic correction
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Impacted wisdom teeth
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common extractions performed involve the wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to erupt. Unfortunately, they do not offer significant functional benefit and are known for causing problems. Between the ages of 16 and 24 years old, patients typically have their wisdom teeth removed. This addresses common wisdom teeth complications, including impaction below the gum line and other issues related to lack of jaw space.
Elegant Smiles is proud to offer wisdom teeth removal in the comfort of our Brookhaven office. It is a simple oral surgery with a high success rate and minimal downtime. With our skill, technology and compassion, your entire experience can be streamlined and free of stress. Our dentists always educate patients about the risks of ignoring impacted or crowded wisdom teeth, which can result in symptoms ranging from shifting teeth to painful jaw cysts.
