Patients in the Alpharetta, Georgia area in need of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry can obtain the care they need from the experienced team at Bella Hanono Family Dentistry. Dr. Bella Hanono has over 25 years of experience in providing dental care to patients in the community and continues to provide a number of services for new and returning patients and families. One procedure that is often performed is that of dental extractions.
A dental extraction involves the permanent removal of a tooth from its socket. There are many reasons why a patient might need a dental extraction:
There are two varieties of extraction: simple extraction and surgical extraction. Dr. Bella Hanono will provide surgical extraction when a tooth is not easily accessible inside the mouth. This is common with the third molars, or wisdom teeth, that often become stuck underneath the gum line and cannot erupt. This can cause significant pain but can be relieved with removal.
A simple extraction is a removal that is done in a matter of minutes with a tooth that has already erupted through the gum line and is accessible to the dentist. As expected, the recovery time for a surgical extraction is longer than that of a simple extraction, so patients should plan accordingly for time off of work or school.
