Oftentimes, tooth extraction is unavoidable and may be the only option. You may need to have a tooth or teeth extracted for a variety of reasons, including:
To make room for braces or dental implants
If your tooth is severely decayed or damaged
If your tooth is infected
If you have wisdom teeth that are causing pain or crowding
No matter the reason, our team at Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry is here to help. We offer both simple and surgical tooth extractions, and our experienced general dentists will work to ensure that the process is as smooth and painless as possible for you.
The hole left behind after your extraction should close up within 1-2 weeks. However, this time frame can vary from patient to patient. If you experience anything out of the ordinary, please don't hesitate to schedule a visit with us or give our office a call.
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars, typically during the late teenage years or early adulthood. For some people, wisdom teeth cause no problems and can be easily accommodated by the mouth. However, this is not always the case.
Wisdom teeth can sometimes become impacted, meaning they get stuck under the gum line and fail to erupt properly. Impacted wisdom teeth may cause many problems, including pain, infection, and damage to surrounding permanent teeth. In some cases, they may need to be removed.
At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we offer wisdom teeth removal services to help you avoid these problems. We will work with you to determine if extraction is necessary and if so, we will carefully remove your wisdom teeth while ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible.
The cost of wisdom teeth removal depends on how complicated the procedure is.

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with tooth extraction. However, these risks are usually minor and can be easily managed. Some of the most common complications include:
Dry socket (when the blood clot that forms in the extraction site is dislodged prematurely)
Most cases, these complications can be easily managed with medication or other simple treatments. However, if you experience any of these problems, please contact our office so that we can provide the appropriate care.
