Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?

Our Extraction Services

Tooth Extractions
If a tooth is damaged or a root canal cannot save it, we offer gentle, in-office tooth extractions in Columbia, SC. After precisely removing the entire tooth, we also preserve the empty socket with bone grafting treatment. This slows bone loss and helps you qualify for the long-term tooth replacement option, dental implants. We offer single and multiple dental implant options depending on the level of tooth loss you’ve experienced. Within the same day, we can remove an infected tooth, restore the bone, and place an implant so you never go a day without a complete smile.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can often come in crooked or cause crowding once erupted. Whether a complex impacted wisdom tooth or one that has already erupted, we gently remove the problem tooth and prevent any further harm to surrounding teeth.

After Your Tooth Extraction

In order to ensure your smile stays healthy, we’ll review helpful post-op instructions for you to follow. Taking proper care of your mouth after extraction can improve healing time and reduce the risk of a dry socket. When a tooth is extracted it leaves behind an empty space in the bone where the tooth root used to be. A protective blood clot will naturally form in this space as part of your healing process. A dry socket occurs when this clot is dislodged leaving the bone and nerves open to exposure and causing pain. We’ll review in detail how to easily avoid dry socket including refraining from vigorous activities for the first few days after your surgery and passing on the straws. We’ll also recommend rinsing your mouth with warm salt water to sanitize the treatment site. With minimally invasive surgical techniques, relaxing sedation solutions, and detailed aftercare, we’d love to help you comfortably remove problem teeth and restore complete health!
