Tooth Extractions

Dr. Kirk Quigless and our dental professionals at Smile Team Dental are dedicated to offering the best care for your smile. In most cases, saving your natural teeth with general dentistry is our top priority. However, there are instances when the best option for your oral health is to have a tooth extracted. When this is the case, we offer a comfortable, caring environment with the best dental expertise to remove teeth that are jeopardizing your health.

Dental technology has made large strides in preventing many types of tooth loss. Yet, even with these advanced treatments, some teeth can become damaged to the point they cannot be saved. Trauma, severe infection and other issues can make it necessary to remove a tooth. When it comes to tooth extraction, our team makes the experience as painless and stress-free as possible. Often the procedure only takes a few minutes, especially when only one tooth is being removed.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most teeth are only removed when they become severely damaged or infected, with the exception of wisdom teeth. These third and last molars arrive in the late teens or early twenties, often to a mouth that has little room for their growth. If the mouth is already crowded, they can become impacted in the gums. This can lead to a host of issues, including sideways growth, exiting the side of the gum or not emerging at all. If wisdom teeth are impacted or causing other issues, it is often recommended they be removed for the patient’s oral health.

If you or your child needs wisdom teeth removal, come see us at Smile Team Dental. We can examine your teeth and determine the best option for their safe removal. We will explain the procedure and explore the anesthesia options with you to ensure you or your child is not in any pain or stress during the removal process.

No one wants to undergo tooth extraction, but when it is necessary, you want an experienced, caring team of dental professionals on your side. Smile Team Dental is that team of caring professionals when you need a tooth extraction in the Belleville area. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for you or a member of your family.
