Just about everyone hopes to make it through life with his or her permanent teeth fully intact. However, the truth of the matter is that millions of Americans must have at least one tooth extracted each year in the United States alone. While wisdom teeth being impacted are the most typical reason thought of in regards to teeth extractions, there are other common reasons why teeth must be removed from the mouth. Any time there is severe injury or trauma to a tooth, infection or decay is present, a tooth is almost always removed. Leaving a tooth that is severely damaged, decayed, or infected in the mouth can compromise a person’s entire oral health. At Crabapple Dental, Dr. Sarah Roberts provides pain free teeth extractions to the residents of Alpharetta.
People who need teeth extractions should not put off the procedure. The longer a damaged, decayed, or infected tooth is left inside the mouth, the more complications can arise. The pain associated with a tooth that needs to be extracted can be incredibly severe, causing you to slur your speech and/or affect your eating. But most importantly is how a damaged or infected tooth can affect the entire health of the mouth. Because the mouth is warm, moist, and full of living bacteria and tissues, it is the ideal place for infections and diseases to spread rapidly. Having a needed teeth extraction is the ideal solution to keeping the entire mouth as healthy as it can be. At Crabapple Dental our entire staff is sensitive to the needs of our patients. We offer local anesthesia as well as sedation dentistry in order to provide painless teeth extractions and to alleviate the fears that many patients feel.
If you need to have a tooth removed, please do not put off this procedure. Dr. Sarah Roberts at Crabapple Dental is a qualified and gentle dentist who leads our staff with sensitivity. We provide the highest standard in dental care for the entire family, and we welcome the opportunity to serve you.
