There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth from the mouth. In childhood, it is common for a tooth to be extracted in order to make room for the permanent tooth to erupt in the mouth. Over crowding often keeps baby teeth in the mouth longer than they should be, or it can cause the permanent teeth to erupt behind the baby teeth and cause need for serious orthodontic treatment. Permanent teeth are also susceptible to extractions. Although these permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, injury, trauma or decay can cause a tooth to be beyond repair and need to be extracted. At Gainesville Dental Group, we offer gentle extractions when it is determined that a tooth needs to be removed. Our experienced dentists are also here to recommend further family dental treatment to avoid complications from the missing tooth.

Impacted Tooth Removal

Teeth that fail to break through the gum tissue are considered to be impacted. Overcrowding is the most common cause of an impacted tooth, where there is simply no room in the jaw for a tooth to emerge. Teeth may also become twisted, slanted, or displaced as they try to emerge and can easily become impacted. Gainesville Dental Group offers gentle and effective impacted tooth removal for patients of all ages. While the wisdom teeth are the most commonly thought of teeth to become impacted, other molars are susceptible as well. Having impacted teeth removed is an essential step to ensuring the health and alignment of the teeth. We are proud to serve patients in the North Georgia area.

Teeth Extraction

Adult teeth are meant to be permanent structures in the mouth, however there are certain times when teeth extractions are necessary for the health of the entire mouth. Crowding, infection, and periodontal disease are all serious issues that may need to be addressed through extraction. Gainesville Dental Group provides the expert treatment you need for your complete oral health. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
