Quick, Painless Extractions
While our focus at Belle Meade Smile Center is on preventative care, we perform tooth extractions on a regular basis.
In the case that an extraction is necessary, Dr. Philip Shipp and our team will talk to you about options and work with you to make the process as quick and painless as possible.
Extractions at Belle Meade Smile Center
We’re always looking for ways to avoid an extraction by keeping your oral health in good shape. We will clean your teeth on a regular basis, discuss a healthy diet with you, and treat gum disease, cavities, and infections to the best of our abilities in order to keep your teeth healthy and intact.
As your general dentist, Dr. Shipp will also work to restore your tooth if it has been damaged – all of which can help you to maintain your natural teeth for years to come.
Signs You Might Need a Tooth Extraction
- If you feel intense discomfort in your tooth or your jaw, give us a call immediately, as this could be a sign of a dental abscess or severe infection.
- If it hurts when you bite down or chew, this can also be an indication of a cavity or infection.
- Other signs like pus or bleeding indicate that you should call (615) 292-4100 and schedule an appointment with our Nashville dentistry office right away.
