Your natural teeth were meant to last a lifetime, functioning from childhood through your golden years. However, almost everyone is destined to lose at least one tooth for some reason. Preventive care can lower the chances of tooth loss, but even with the best of oral hygiene, sometimes teeth will still end up missing.

We believe in preventive dental care at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta. We encourage our patients to take good care of their teeth. Our team helps patients do this by providing excellent care and education. We want our patients to know and understand how and why oral health is important. Still, there are situations when a tooth or teeth need extraction.

Extractions Performed with Care and Precision

Most tooth extractions are routine procedures, particularly for anterior teeth, since they only have one root. The back teeth, with three or occasionally four roots, can be more involved and may take more time to remove. Another consideration is the condition of the crown of the tooth, which is the part of the tooth that is above the gum line. If the tooth is broken, decayed or damaged where little of the crown remains, the extraction will be more involved.

The prosthodontists at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta understand the importance of extracting a tooth, causing minimal amount of trauma to the extraction site. The less trauma, the faster and better the area will heal. Our dentists’ gentle chairside manner helps you to relax and feel calm while undergoing the extraction procedure.

Aftercare of the Extraction Site

Another important aspect of the healing process is aftercare. Tooth extractions are considered surgery and as such, it is important that you follow the home care directions given to you by your dentist. We care about our patients and do not want them to experience the complications and discomfort that can occur when aftercare procedures are neglected.

You may have questions before or after the extraction procedure. We encourage you to ask them so you will know what to expect and have a full understanding of the procedure. Schedule your appointment with us for a comprehensive oral exam. We will address your dental issues to give you a smile that is healthy and beautiful.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
