Most of us have been in this position at one time or another. You need a particular thing, but you can’t get to it because something else is in the way. In other words, you need to remove something you don’t need to get what you really want.
That’s equally true for many patients who could benefit from a tooth extraction. Today, we want to discuss two times when you could benefit from this kind of oral surgery, which we can do for you at Atlanta West Dentistry.
To find out if tooth removal could be good for your oral health, call our Marietta, GA dental office at 770-744-4619 to schedule a consultation.
You Want To Straighten Your Smile
Millions of people start orthodontic care (such as Invisalign) every year. Crowding is one of the most common causes of crooked smiles. The size of your jaw and the way your teeth erupt can cause teeth to press against one another in ways that hurt the look of your smile.
In some cases, this crowding can make orthodontic treatment much more complicated. That could mean treatments that last for years instead of being complete in 18 months or less.
By removing a tooth or multiple teeth, you can save time and improve your smile much more effectively. Tooth removal can be the first step toward a healthier and more attractive smile for you or someone you love.
You Want To Replace Your Teeth
More than 30 million Americans are missing one or both rows of teeth. Tooth loss is much more common than many people realize.
For better or worse, many people will lose several teeth but still have a few that remain. In some instances, removing those last few teeth can allow them to get better teeth replacements.
Implant-supported dentures have proven to be practically as strong and stable as a full set of healthy teeth. And advanced teeth replacement options like our TeethXpress® could help you get your replacement teeth in less time. Having a complete set of teeth is good for self-confidence. It also lets people speak naturally and eat a variety of foods as well.
Stay Comfortable During Your Tooth Extraction
Your oral health and your comfort are both priorities when you come to Atlanta West Dentistry. If you ever need a tooth removed or another kind of oral surgery, know that we offer dental sedation to keep your pain-free.
Like many offices, we provide laughing gas (inhaled sedation) and medication (oral sedation) as options for our patients. Both are effective at helping patients feel calm and relaxed and remaining pain-free during a procedure.
For more complex treatments, we also offer IV sedation. Few dental practices have completed the training to offer this, but we feel it’s important to do everything we can to help our patients feel at ease.
Win By Losing
A vast majority of the time, our team in Marietta is doing all we can to help patients keep their teeth. On those occasions when taking out a tooth would be beneficial, we are prepared to handle that process at our office.
