Tooth Extractions in Huntsville

Same Day Appointments for Dental Emergencies

At Flint River Dental, we understand that having a tooth extracted is intimidating for many patients. We exhaust all conservative treatment options before resorting to extraction. Despite our best efforts, there are situations that require removing a tooth. When this happens, we offer extractions in Huntsville to preserve your oral health.

If you are having a problem with one or more teeth, please call (256) 537-8878 to book an appointment.

Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Teeth may need to be extracted for a number of reasons, such as excessive decay or damage to the tooth that cannot be repaired with other treatment methods. When a tooth needs to be removed, Dr. Darby is skilled at performing comfortable extractions in Huntsville. Sedation options are available to help keep you comfortable and relaxed during treatment.

Some common reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • Severe damage
  • Extensive decay
  • Gum disease
  • A tooth that's fractured below the gum line
  • An impacted wisdom tooth
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Preparing the mouth for dentures

When we recommend an extraction, you can be sure that we have considered all possible options for saving the tooth. Regardless of the reason that a tooth needs to be removed, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest quality, patient centered care from a well-trained and experienced team of dental professionals.

Keeping Patients Comfortable During Extractions

The idea of having a tooth extracted is extremely stressful for many patients, especially if you have dental anxiety. Dr. Darby has extensive training and expertise in oral surgery and sedation. She has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education to the study of advanced sedation techniques. Oral sedation during extractions in Huntsville allows you to relax and remain comfortable during the treatment. We offer options for both nitrous oxide and oral sedation to accommodate the needs of every patient.

On every visit to our office, you can expect exceptional quality care and our undivided attention. We schedule appointments to devote enough time to providing our patients with the care and attention they deserve. You won’t be rushed, and we always take the time to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Compassionate Dental Care

Tooth extraction can be overwhelming even for patients without anxiety about visiting the dentist. For those with dental anxiety, the procedure can be even more stressful. We specialize in dental anxiety, so you can rest assured that you are in the hands of skilled dental professionals who are focused on your needs.

Depending on the situation, tooth extractions in Huntsville can often be planned in advanced. However, when patients are in pain, removing the tooth quickly may be necessary to stop the discomfort. If you are experiencing pain, call our office. We have time set aside for patients who are experiencing dental emergencies and do everything we can to get you in for an appointment, on the same day whenever possible.

If you think you may need a tooth extracted, call (256) 537-8878 to set up an appointment.
