    • Everything I have had done at Premier Smile Center has been top-notch. The treatment I received was thorough, precise and extremely professional. I never felt like just another patient because they took the time to listen to my concerns. They addressed my issues and we agreed on the treatment plan together.

      The staff is very friendly, warm and extremely knowledgeable. I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing I chose the right place to get the dental work I needed. Dr. Johnson is very humane and very knowledgeable, and she does amazing work. I like the friendliness and honesty of the whole practice. I was not confident with my smile, in fact I was very self conscious and rarely smiled. Premier Smile Center has changed all that. My smile is one of the things I like the most.

    • I was terrified to receive a root canal, but I knew it had to be done. After meeting with Dr. Johnson and Dr. Bui, I felt better about the procedure. They educated me on the process. I was comfortable and had no pain—which was my biggest worry. I love coming to the office. Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable. The doctors and staff educate you on what they are doing and why it is needed.

      The dentist was a place I visited only when I desperately needed to, and now I’m in the office every few months. I don’t live near the office anymore, but as long as they’re there, I will be driving over to Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to Premier Smile Center, I now have healthy, pearly white and almost perfectly straight teeth.

    • When I first came to the practice, my teeth were in terrible condition. From the beginning to the end of my treatment, Dr. Johnson and her entire practice were outstanding, professional and extremely understanding of my needs. Dr. Johnson is honest and very hands-on, and the practice feels like a family and not a factory. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, I now have a great smile.

    • Coming to Premier Smile Center was a life-changing experience for me. Although I was a registered nurse, I had the worst teeth ever—a missing tooth, discolored teeth and a crooked smile. Dr. Johnson explained to me in detail how she could give me a beautiful smile. She and her staff have been truly supportive and non-judgmental about my teeth. Dr. Johnson is compassionate, understanding and a joy to talk to, and the staff are friendly, efficient and caring. They encouraged me to go on when I was feeling down, and now I can smile confidently.

      The treatment I received has greatly increased my self-esteem. I can smile and laugh unashamedly and join into a group conversation, and not just be a passive listener. I also have better health and nutrition. It is the best investment I have ever made for myself.

    • Premier Smile Center has always treated me like family, and my experience as a patient of Dr. Johnson’s has been nothing but satisfactory. Dr. Johnson is brilliant, and the practice is clean, friendly and professional. Before I came to the office, the condition of my teeth was depressing. As a result of my treatment, I have more confidence and less anxiety associated with a messed-up mouth.

    • Before coming to Premier Smile Center, I had not been to a dentist in some time. I needed some periodontal work done, fillings and wisdom tooth extractions. What initially struck me was the warm welcome I received from the front office staff, and I had virtually no wait time before I was greeted by Dr. Johnson. She was incredibly professional and explained everything she was doing as she conducted the initial exam. She made her recommendations and scheduled a return visit to repair some fillings and pull two wisdom teeth.

      What was truly amazing was that within 24 hours Dr. Johnson herself called to check on me and asked how my experience was. My wisdom tooth extractions went flawlessly, and I experienced very little bleeding and no pain during or after the procedure. Again, Dr. Johnson called me afterward to check how I was doing. I like Dr. Johnson’s warm and sincere concern for her patients, and I also like her professional staff. I am always impressed by the warm, professional nature of everyone in the office.

    • From the moment I arrived at Premier Smile Center over a year ago, Dr. Johnson and her entire staff have been amazing. Needless to say, anytime you have a cosmetic procedure done there will be nerves and lots of questions. Within minutes into my initial consultation, these concerns subsided. Unlike other dental practices I have been to, Dr. Johnson took her time and explained what I should expect from beginning to end with Invisalign. I continue to receive compliments on my smile every day. I love it! I have already and would recommend her again to anyone I know. A huge thank you to Dr. Johnson and the Premier Smile Center staff for making my experience fabulous!

    Tooth Extraction

    tooth extraction

    If you have a damaged or infected tooth, your dentist will do everything possible to save the tooth and only perform a tooth extraction as a last resort. However, sometimes a tooth is so compromised and the damage so severe that the only way to preserve your oral health and keep the rest of your teeth and gums from suffering is to remove the tooth. At Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Charmaine Johnson addresses dental care head-on and makes the most appropriate decisions for your oral health.

    Reasons for a Tooth Extraction

    When a tooth cannot be successfully treated with a typical dental restoration like root canal therapy, a porcelain crown, or a tooth-colored filling, tooth extraction will be necessary to protect the rest of your oral health. You cannot leave a decayed, diseased, or damaged tooth in your mouth without suffering painful consequences – and why would you want to when there is such an easy repair.

    When tooth extraction is the right solution, it can deliver immediate relief for problems like:

    How Teeth Are Extracted

    Tooth extraction is a routine procedure, but it isn’t speedy. Every tooth in an adult’s mouth has a fully established root system and this must be removed along with the crown of the tooth. Even if a tooth is damaged, most of the tooth may still be lodged in the socket.

    Extraction is a meticulous procedure and carefully done to ensure the tooth is fully removed without a bit left behind. To make this treatment as easy as possible, a numbing agent and oral sedation are typically administered to ensure that only some pressure is felt. Here is how tooth extraction generally works:

    How to Fix Your Smile After Tooth Extraction

    It’s important to understand that any extracted tooth needs to be replaced. After all, every tooth plays a role in your mouth, not only physically but functionally. You want your smile to be complete and look good and you want your mouth to work properly so other teeth aren’t compromised by a tooth’s absence.

    Once the extraction site has fully healed, your Fort Lauderdale dentist will monitor your progress and you can discuss all possible dental restorations for your smile, including:

    The right restorative dentistry for your mouth will depend on the location of the missing tooth, your budget, and your preferences for comfort and longevity of the restoration.

    Cost Factors for Tooth Extraction

    Every tooth extraction is unique, and the cost factors affecting the tooth extraction will vary. Some teeth are more difficult to extract than others, which impacts the bottom line, as does a planned, routine extraction vs. an emergency extraction. Other cost factors include:

    Various financing options are available from your Fort Lauderdale dentist, including CareCredit and the Premier Smile Center Membership Club for patients without insurance.
