At the practice of Dr. Bella Hanono, patients have access to a wide selection of services. In addition to general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, she also provides simple tooth extraction for many of the patients in the Alpharetta, Georgia, area who visit her. Simple tooth extraction removes a tooth within minutes, allowing patients to proceed with restorative treatment.
Below are a few of the situations that may occur in which Dr. Bella Hanono may recommend the removal of a natural adult tooth:
In some cases, Dr. Bella Hanono may refer patients to an oral surgeon for the extraction if it is a more complex procedure. She will work closely with these specialists to ensure her patients receive exceptional care before, during, and after tooth extraction.
During the tooth extraction appointment, Dr. Bella Hanono will administer local anesthesia to ensure comfort during the procedure. She will use a tool called an elevator to loosen and remove the affected tooth. If necessary, she may also need to use specialized forceps to extract it fully from the surrounding tissue and bone.
After your tooth has been removed, Dr. Bella Hanono may place gauze at the extraction site to control any bleeding and encourage blood clot formation for healing. You may experience some discomfort or swelling in the days following your appointment, but over-the-counter or prescribed pain medication can help manage these symptoms as you heal.
