Common Symptoms of Problem Teeth

Our Extraction Solutions

Tooth Extractions
For severely damaged or decayed teeth, we offer gentle extractions to rid your mouth of infection and discomfort. We’ll rebuild or preserve the empty socket after extraction with bone grafting treatment to slow bone loss. Then, we’ll help you choose a tooth replacement option to restore your mouth to proper function, health, and esthetics. We often recommend dental implants which provide a permanent and lifelike replacement for a missing tooth.

Proper Care After Your Extraction

We’ll be sure to review your post-operative instructions after receiving your extraction. It’s important to take care of your treatment site in order to prevent conditions like dry sockets from forming. When a tooth is extracted, an empty space in the bone (the tooth socket) is left where the roots used to be. As part of your body’s natural healing process, a blood clot will develop in this spot, but if this clot fails to form or is displaced, you may experience what’s called a “dry socket” which painfully exposes the bone and nerves to the open air. Tooth extractions at our Edgefield, SC office rarely result in dry sockets if care is taken to follow all post-operative instructions provided by our team. This may include avoiding vigorous activities for a few days after surgery, not drinking through a straw, avoiding brushing the extraction site and making sure to rinse your mouth with warm salt water regularly. We’ll review all these considerations until you feel comfortable and confident. If you do experience pain after your treatment, we’ll be here, ready to help.
