Why Would a Dentist Extract a Tooth? Marietta, GA
Dentist with dental imaging explaining problem and treatment to the patient.

You only get one set of teeth for a lifetime. To this end, your dentist will do everything they can to save a natural tooth. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible. There are certain situations, such as severe decay or extensive damage, that can make it necessary to remove a tooth. Tooth extractions are nothing to fear. They are safely performed for children and adults as a proven means to protect the long-term health of your smile. With sedation dentistry, the latest dental technology and refined techniques, tooth extractions can also be a pain-free procedure. When it comes to extracting a tooth, it is important to listen and adhere to any post-operative instructions that will facilitate your healing at home.

Tooth extractions may be necessary in the following circumstances:

  • Severe or advanced decay
  • Badly broken or fractured tooth
  • Crowding/orthodontic reasons
  • Baby tooth that fails to fall out on its own
  • Wisdom teeth

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to be removed by your dentist. These are the final set of molars to emerge. Sadly, they are known for causing more harm than good. It is common for wisdom teeth to erupt sideways or become impacted due to lack of space in the jaw. Therefore, many young adults opt to have their wisdom teeth removed before their smile health is compromised. At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we perform wisdom teeth extractions with the highest level of care and minimal patient discomfort. By offering wisdom teeth removal, we can prevent serious wisdom teeth complications such as infection, jaw cysts, bite misalignment and bone loss.

If we recommend a tooth extraction or wisdom teeth removal at Pure Smiles Dentistry, you can trust that it is in the best interest of your smile health. We are committed to helping our patients achieve a confident smile, which is one that is comfortable, healthy and attractive.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
