While MINT dentistry and our team of skilled, board-certified dental doctors make every effort to save and preserve your natural teeth, there are cases where a tooth or teeth may need to be extracted. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gum line. This is typically used for a tooth that is damaged or decayed beyond repair. A surgical extraction removes a tooth or teeth that have not erupted above the gumline. Surgical extractions are most commonly used to remove the wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that do not have enough room to fit into your smile. Whatever the reason is for your need for a tooth extraction MINT dentistry's experienced team will give you the care you deserve. Our locations offer different sedation techniques, such as nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, so you remain calm and comfortable during your procedure. Contact our team for more information or to schedule an exam that will help us determine if you need a simple or surgical dental extraction.

If your tooth has been broken or damaged from decay, our dental team will make every effort to repair it with a crown, dental bonding, or filling. However, if these efforts are unsuccessful or the damage is too severe, you may be a candidate for tooth extraction. You may also need a dental extraction to remove teeth that cannot fit in your mouth. This includes your third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, which develop around the ages of 17 – 21 years old. In older children, baby teeth that have not fallen out on their own may need to be pulled so they don't block the permanent teeth. If you are getting braces or considering Invisalign®, you may need a tooth pulled to make room for others as they move into their proper position.

A previous location in midtown atlanta did not do my fill in my wisdom tooth correctly, there were holes found misinforming the patient of procedure being done. Days later I was in soooo much pain! I decided to change offices and instead go with a dentist at college park office. I am happy to say the dentist and her staff did a wonderful job by really really closing and fixing my problem area by responding with cleaning the area with retreatment. I am so thankful for the staff from the front office desk to the hygienist to the dentist at the college park location for their experience and wonderful customer service. Hands down best location in Georgia is the College Park office. Not to mention parking was easy and freeee!

Extractions are performed in our advanced, state-of-the-art facility under anesthesia to offer supreme comfort while your tooth or teeth are being removed. The form of sedation used depends on the extent of the procedure and whether you have any dental anxieties. Before the procedure is initiated, you will be allowed a few moments to relax in a massage-style treatment chair within one of our well-appointed procedure rooms. Once you are ready, we will begin the extraction. For a simple extraction, one of our highly qualified dentists will use advanced techniques and cutting-edge tools to gently remove the tooth. A surgical extraction will begin with a MINT dentist making incisions in your gums to reach the tooth. If needed, the tooth may be broken into smaller pieces, so it can be removed more easily. Once the tooth is removed, we will close the incision in your gums.

Depending on the method of sedation used during your extraction, you may need to have a responsible adult drive you home. A MINT dentistry professional will provide you will specific instructions, including things to avoid during your recovery. This process could vary, depending on the complexity of your extraction, but most patients prefer to eat soft, cool foods for the first few days after the extraction. Your mouth may be swollen after the extraction, so we recommend cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication. In some cases, we may write you a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics. In addition to any suggested follow-up appointments, you should continue to schedule appointments at MINT dentistry for dental exams and cleanings, so our team can monitor your oral health after an extraction.
