Tooth Extractions

At Montevallo Family Dentistry, we do our absolute best to help you protect and keep your natural teeth with general dentistry. However, there are certain situations that warrant a tooth extraction. If you need to have a tooth removed, you can trust our team to deliver top quality care. Dr. Shunnarah is a gentle dentist who uses skilled precision when extracting teeth. Our practice is equipped with everything you need to minimize your discomfort during the procedure, including state-of-the-art technology, modern patient amenities, sedation dentistry and more.

The following dental issues represent times in which a tooth extraction may be needed to protect your current and/or future smile health:

  • Severe decay
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Infection
  • Orthodontic correction
  • Fractured tooth or tooth roots
  • Impacted tooth (wisdom tooth)

When choosing Montevallo Family Dentistry for your tooth extraction, you can trust us to treat you like a member of our own family. We take the time to inform our patients on what to expect during and after this simple procedure. In addition, Dr. Shunnarah uses extraction techniques that preserve as much surrounding bone and tissue as possible.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars. Unfortunately, many patients do not have enough jaw space for these molars to erupt in a proper, healthy manner. This leads to common wisdom teeth problems, which may include the teeth coming in sideways, getting trapped or impacted below the gum line or partially erupting. All of these issues can significantly jeopardize your oral health. In fact, impacted wisdom teeth may lead to jaw cysts, infection, bone loss and misalignment. Consequently, to prevent these complications, wisdom teeth are often removed in patients between the ages of 16 and 20.

Rest assured that wisdom teeth removal is provided with the highest standard of care at Montevallo Family Dentistry. We offer sedation dentistry to eliminate your pain and help you relax. Dr. Shunnarah will also carefully explain your post-operative instructions to accelerate healing and reduce your discomfort at home.
