Tooth Removal in Suwanee, GA
& easy extractions
An extraction can save your smile
Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in the US. Why? This bacterial infection attacks gum tissue, teeth roots, and the bone structure underneath gums that support your teeth.
If you’re suffering from advanced gum disease, Dr. Li will do everything possible to treat the problem and save your tooth. However, in some cases tooth loss is inevitable and tooth extraction is the best way to immediately start treating the issue and improve your dental health.
Can a periodontist extract teeth?
Our periodontist can not only expertly remove teeth, but also treat the underlying reason for the extraction — for example, damaged gum and bone tissue, infection, or decay. Most importantly, we offer dental implant solutions to replace your tooth after an extraction. This offers you the convenience of having the extraction and rehabilitation performed in one office.
How do you know when a tooth needs to be pulled?
Dr. Li is dedicated to saving your teeth. However, there are situations where an extraction is the best option for improving the health of your smile. An extraction may be recommended if…
Your tooth is severely decayed or infected
Your tooth is cracked and damaged beyond repair
Overcrowding is causing problems for other teeth
Gum disease has loosened your tooth’s foundation
Restoring your smile after dental extraction
Tooth replacement after extraction is not only important for your appearance, lifestyle, and confidence, but also for your oral health. A single missing tooth can lead to other concerns like decay, disease, and shifting teeth. We replace missing teeth every day through:
