It would be ideal if you could keep all of your natural teeth, healthy and strong, for life. Unfortunately, there are times that it’s necessary to remove a tooth, and when that’s the situation you’re facing, you can depend on us at North Gwinnett Dental Care for expert and gentle care.
Toothaches are one of the primary indications that you might need our extractions in Sugar Hill. Of course, not all toothaches result in tooth loss. It could be a simple cavity that requires a filling or an existing filling that has loosened or fallen out. You may have chipped or cracked a tooth, or the tooth could be infected inside. The first priority is to save the tooth, of course. Our extractions in Sugar Hill are considered a last resort, but one that when are experiencing pain, possibly severe pain, needs to be done in a timely manner. We’re pleased to provide emergency care at our office, so we will make every effort to have you seen as soon as we can manage it. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and we are excited to let you know that we even offer the option of anesthesia without injections, because we know that many of our patients have anxiety about needles. Once the tooth has been taken out, you will be given some basic guidelines to follow so that you the gums and surrounding affected area will heal quickly and properly. Eat only soft foods like pudding, broth, and gelatin for the first 24 hours. When you get home from our office, take over-the-counter pain relievers if necessary to combat discomfort. And hold an ice pack on the outside of your mouth to manage any swelling.
To schedule our extractions in Sugar Hill, do call us immediately. If you have a toothache, the quicker you are able to get attention for it, the sooner your discomfort will be relieved.
