We work hard to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are situations in which a tooth extraction is necessary. At Vital Smiles in Huntsville, we perform tooth extractions with a gentle and refined technique so that your discomfort is minimized and the surrounding bone and tissue is preserved. Our practice is equipped with a team of skilled dentists, state-of-the-art dental technology and family-friendly amenities. We offer a complete menu of dental services that are designed to maintain or restore the health of your smile through all stages of life.
It is important to us that our patients know what to expect during their tooth extraction procedure and post-operative period. We also want to be sure you understand why a tooth extraction is justifiable in your specific situation. Removing a tooth may be needed in the following cases:
- Extensive decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Severe Infection
- Prior to orthodontic correction
- Fractured or damaged teeth
- Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Extracting wisdom teeth is quite common, and it can be done as a preventative measure in young adults. These third set of molars are known for erupting sideways, becoming impacted and causing disruption within your smile. To prevent complications such as pain, jaw cysts and gum infections, our Huntsville dentists can remove your wisdom teeth during an in-office procedure. At Vital Smiles, we protect your comfort at every step. Before you leave, we will also carefully explain your post-operative instructions to accelerate healing.
It is important to note that not all severe toothaches warrant an extraction. In fact, seeking treatment sooner rather than later can help save your tooth. Our practice offers root canals and other restorative procedures to save a diseased tooth whenever possible. If you or your child does require a tooth extraction, you can trust our Huntsville dentists to deliver unsurpassed patient care from the moment you walk through our doors. We want to create an experience that is truly stress-free and rewarding. Please ask us about our payment options and insurance acceptance to reduce your financial burdens.
