– Malpositioned teeth
– Fractured teeth or roots
– Impacted teeth
After careful examination and treatment, the dentist may advise to have a tooth extracted. Before a tooth is removed, the dentist will take an x-ray in order to understand the shape and position of the tooth and surrounding bone. Based on the degree of difficulty, we may refer you to a specialized oral surgeon.
For a simple extraction, we will first apply a local anesthetic to prevent pain and discomfort. The tooth will be loosened with a tool called an elevator and then removed with dental forceps. Once the procedure is complete, the area may be closed with one or two stitches. We will then provide you with care instructions to alleviate discomfort and ensure proper healing.

I love this office! Best dental group I have been too. They even helped keep an eye on my baby while I was getting my teeth cleaned. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! Dr Aras is such a great dentist and takes a lot of time answering my questions. I highly recommend this office! It feels like someone’s home whenever I am there.

Noelle is extremely passionate about her job and it shows. I’m not much of a fan of going to the dentist (…well, who is?) but she makes my cleaning go by quickly and painlessly. These people care about what they do and their patients..

My dental cleaning was quick, fun, and easy. The dental technician was professional and thorough, so I was finished in less than an hour. I would highly recommend Center Point Dental Group.

I trust Dr. McCleave. Over the years several hygienists in his office have spoken approvingly about him and one hygienist elsewhere even thought my Tooth #1 was beautiful. Also, I have never had a toothache.
