Tooth extractions are used to address overcrowding or to remove a damaged or decayed tooth. Tooth extractions are a last resort when dental fillings or root canals are no longer effective for restoring the tooth.
A tooth extraction is a simple procedure that can be completed form the comfort of our Palmetto Smiles dentist office. A local anesthetic will numb the area and your dentist will gently remove the tooth from the root. A small stitched may be placed to reduce the risk of infection.
Dental Implants for Extracted Teeth
Depending on the number and location of extracted teeth, patients may choose to have them replaced with a dental implant. Dental implants are the most natural and comfortable way to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants help to support the entire chewing system by providing support to the jaw bone and gum tissue.
Palmetto Smiles dentist Dr. Sang offer full-service in-house dental implants. We handle all aspects of the implant procedure for streamlined results. From the surgical placement of the implant post to the design and fit of the final restoration, our dental care team will ensure a comfortable, secure and lasting result.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge typically in the late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth commonly become impacted and could lead to infection. Wisdom teeth may also cause overcrowding forcing teeth to shift and become crooked.
Most adults will have their wisdom teeth removed at some point. The wisdom tooth removal is a routine procedure and is commonly completed using a local anesthetic. Sedation dentistry options are also made available at the patient’s request.
Your Palmetto Smiles dentist will provide detailed post care instructions allowing for a quick and comfortable recovery.
