Don’t Fear Tooth Extractions!

Infected, damaged teeth can cause pain so severe that eating, drinking, and even sleeping become a challenge. Although we always recommend saving natural teeth, if a tooth is unsalvageable, we advise a tooth extraction in order to save your overall health. Left in place, a sick tooth can compromise the surrounding teeth, bone, and gums and cause lasting pain. With expert training, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon is considered a specialist in tooth extractions.

We welcome patients with pre-existing conditions and frequently take cases others turn away. We also offer the comprehensive services patients need during a tooth extraction (anesthesia services) as well as after (bone grafting and dental implants). Using state-of-the-art technology, we not only provide a comfortable surgical experience, we’re also able to replace your unsalvageable tooth immediately after extraction with a natural-looking dental implant. In just one day we can remove the cause of your pain and provide a new source of confidence. If you’re looking for a trusted doctor for your tooth extraction in Smithfield, NC, see one that can provide the complete care you need for a functional, lasting, and healthy smile. If you’ve lost teeth, or are about to have some extracted, you’re facing many new limitations. You might only be able to eat soft foods because eating anything else causes you discomfort. You might not be able to speak clearly and naturally. You can smile but the idea embarrasses you—especially if the missing teeth are in your smile zone. Your face may even take on a sunken, aged appearance if your tooth loss leads to bone recession.

There are many solutions to recover your smile, including dental bridges and dental implants, which offer the function and aesthetics of real teeth, jaw protection, and unequaled longevity. You may be surprised at how quickly you’re able to eat, speak, laugh, and smile again once your teeth are replaced by our team at Smile Solutions Dental Implant Center. If you have failing or missing teeth in Smithfield, NC, reach out, we’ll help you find the tooth replacement solution you need for a complete, confident, and healthy smile.

Benefits of Seeing a Specialist

The Extraction and Recovery

Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at Smile Solutions Dental Implant Center in Smithfield, NC. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!

Make Way for an Upgrade

Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment. With the exception of wisdom teeth, we frequently recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). The dental implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of your extracted tooth root and includes the added benefit of stimulating healthy bone growth. Once this post has integrated fully with the bone, a custom dental crown is permanently attached using an abutment (connector piece). This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. Receiving this care from a specialist with expert training in dental implants, you will likely be able to have a dental implant placed in the same visit as your tooth extraction. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
