Receive Gentle Tooth Removal in Stone Mountain

One of our top priorities at Blankenship Family Dentistry is to save a patient’s tooth whenever possible. Dr. Blankenship and Dr. Jordan are skilled in many restorative options to repair and strengthen your teeth. Sometimes, however, a tooth is so badly damaged or diseased that tooth removal in Stone Mountain is necessary to preserve the health of your other teeth and gums. Below are some advantages of removing a tooth in this condition:

  • Stop toothache pain so you can relax again
  • Improve your overall oral health
  • Protect your body against possible disease from an infected tooth
  • Give your smile a healthier, more attractive look

Plus, we offer oral sedation with a small pill if you need help relaxing during your procedure. Call us today at 770-766-8995 to schedule your appointment.

Replace Your Missing Tooth for a Fully Functional Smile

Once your tooth is removed, it is best to get a new replacement tooth to avoid shifting in your other teeth and other problems. We offer several ways to restore your tooth to prevent these problems, make chewing easier, and improve the look of your smile. If you choose implants, you will also avoid jawbone deterioration:

  • Dental Implant Restoration – We work closely with an oral surgeon who will place a titanium tooth implant in your jaw. After healing, we can secure a porcelain crown to it. If you need more than one tooth replaced, multiple implants give you options for implant bridges and implant dentures as well.
  • Fixed Bridge – This appliance fills in missing teeth and attaches on either end to your existing teeth.
  • Dentures – Conventional full dentures will replace a complete set of teeth on your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. If you have some healthy teeth remaining, partial dentures will fill in your smile.

Get out of pain and protect your health! Call us today for gentle, easy tooth removal in Stone Mountain: 770-766-8995. If you’re in pain, we’ll do our best to offer you a same-day appointment.

Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

How much does a tooth removal cost?

When it comes to a tooth extraction, or any other type of oral surgery, each case is different. The cost will ultimately depend on which tooth needs removing as well as the overall condition of your mouth. We encourage you to come in for an exam and X-rays so we can give you an accurate idea of the cost involved.

How long does it take a tooth removal to heal?

For most standard tooth removals, you can expect the extraction site to heal in about seven to 10 days. You can play a big role in the actual healing time, however. Following your aftercare instructions and limiting your physical exertion for a few days will help you heal faster and more comfortably.

Does a tooth removal hurt?

You can feel confident our experienced dental team will do all we can to make sure your tooth removal is as comfortable as possible. We’ll take a set of digital X-rays to help us plan your procedure, then we’ll use an anesthetic to ensure the area we’re working on is fully numb. We even have oral sedation to eliminate your dental anxiety and help you relax.
