Don’t Fear Your Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extractions Roswell GA

You are probably familiar with the phrase, “it’s like pulling teeth.” Unfortunately, pulling or extracting teeth has acquired a negative connotation. In reality, getting a tooth pulled at the dental office involves a quick and minimal discomfort procedure. Furthermore, by choosing Dr. Mitzi Morris, you can benefit from relaxing amenities, sedation dentistry and the latest techniques in modern dentistry to reduce or eliminate any pain.

Why Extract?

There are many circumstances that warrant a tooth extraction. While a damaged tooth will often try to be saved by other measures (filling or root canal), there are times in which the tooth is simply not able to be restored and may cause harm to your oral health. Here are some common scenarios in which tooth extraction is recommended:

  • Broken, cracked, and/or excessively decayed teeth
  • Non-functional, misaligned and/or impacted wisdom teeth
  • To prepare for full dentures when only a few teeth remain
  • Children who have impacted teeth or teeth that are blocking others from erupting
  • Orthodontic patients that need to relieve overcrowding

What To Expect?

After a thorough examination and set of x-rays to confirm the necessity of the extraction, we will carefully explain what you can expect during the procedure. We will anesthetize the area and gently rock the tooth back and forth to expand the socket and loosen the ligaments. Patients often feel pressure but are numb to any pain. You may also choose sedation dentistry if you are particularly apprehensive about the procedure. We always implement dedicated techniques to remove only the affected tooth, while leaving healthy surrounding bone and tissues untouched.

Post-Extraction Care

After your procedure, it is important to protect the blood clot that will form in your tooth socket. It is best to avoid using a straw, consuming hot foods or drinks and rinsing/spitting. We may also advise that you limit strenuous activity for a period of time. If the clot does get dislodged, you may experience symptoms of dry socket (or alveolar osteitis). In such cases, call our office promptly. For most patients, over-the-counter pain relievers and ice can address any post-operative discomfort. A small amount of bleeding and swelling is normal.

Teeth Replacement

Not all extraction cases demand teeth replacement. However, many of them do. Unless it was a wisdom tooth or an extraction for orthodontic reasons, you will likely qualify for tooth replacement. At the office of Mitzi Morris, DMD, we proudly offer dental implants and other options for permanent prosthetic teeth. Call our Roswell team today to learn more!

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
