Tooth Extractions | Montgomery AL

You and Dr. Nizam, Dr. Ivory, or Dr. Goehring may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Drs. Nizam, Ivory, or Goehring will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

The Tooth Extraction Process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

Sectioning a Tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

Patient Review by Teresa A

Dr. Nizam was excellent. Cut 17 teeth out and was so nice. My Husband woke up Delirious and Combative from the medicine to put him to sleep. 4 staff members and him self worked with my husband over an hour. He finally came to himself. Thanks so much to Dr. Nizam and his staff. I would recommend Alabama Surgical Arts 100%.

Patient Review by Vickie H

I was having horrific tooth pain and the tooth was cracked! Dr. Nizam and his staff did a wonderful job from start to finish explaining everything that needed to be done. I highly recommend this practice! Not too often when a Dr. takes time out of his or her busy day and calls you to follow up! I so appreciated Dr. Nizam doing this! A special thank you to all! No more pain! Mission success!

Patient Review by Nicole L

The staff was friendly and very professional. My oral surgery was quick with very little bleeding afterwards. The sutures were also nicely done and sturdy. Once the anesthesia wore off, I still had only minimal pain which was a plus. I was really impressed that Dr. Nizam, called me to follow up and make sure there were no complications. I highly recommend Alabama Surgical Arts for oral surgery procedures.

Patient Review by Bill B

I recently had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr. Goehring. This was my second tooth extraction done by Dr. Goehring. He and his entire team, front office and back office (surgical/nursing staff), did an excellent job. They are highly competent professionals, and I recommend them without reservation.
