At Dentistry & Orthodontics in Georgia, we work hard to keep your teeth happy and healthy. However, if a tooth is severely damaged, infected, or an uncomfortable wisdom tooth, we may recommend an extraction. You’ll be in good hands — our skilled team will gently remove the troublemaker tooth and we offer sedation to keep you relaxed throughout the process. If you need help, we’re here for you.

When Does a Tooth Need an Extraction?
If a tooth is damaged or infected, your dentist will typically cap the tooth with a crown or provide a root canal if the interior structure has become infected. However, in some cases, the tooth is too far gone and needs to be removed. This can happen because of severe decay, an infection that is spreading into the surrounding tissue and bone, a broken tooth beyond repair, or in the case of wisdom teeth that are impacted or causing discomfort.
How Does the Extraction Process Work?
We handle most extractions in-house. Our friendly, gentle team will make sure that you’re comfortably numb, and then safely remove the damaged tooth. Most extractions can typically be completed in a single visit. For especially complex cases, we may refer you to a trusted oral surgeon.
What If I Feel Nervous?
Totally normal! That’s why we offer sedation options to help you feel more relaxed and at ease during the procedure. Dental sedation is safe, effective, and can help soothe anxiety and make your experience more pleasant.
