The dental experts at Greenville Family Smiles take pride in delivering the best preventive services, giving your smile a fighting chance against decay. That said, for some patients, dental extractions are an important part of preserving their total body health. Dr. Goldston uses cutting-edge techniques to ensure complete comfort during this common procedure. After teeth have been removed, we’ll even work with you to determine the type of tooth replacement plan that’s best for you!
If you suffer from anxiety or you or your child has special healthcare needs that make it difficult to receive dental treatment, please let us know! We offer several sedation options that can be tailored to meet your needs!
Why You May Need A Dental Extraction
Dental extractions are a common dental procedure performed on patients of all different ages. If you are dealing with the following conditions or diagnoses, Dr. Goldston may recommend tooth removal:
- Periodontal Disease
- Severe Tooth Decay
- Full Mouth Rehabilitation
- Orthodontic Therapy
The most important part of your dental extraction is keeping you comfortable. Dr. Goldston will numb the area around the tooth to minimize any discomfort that you might feel during the procedure. And, remember, laughing gas and oral conscious sedation is always available to those who need it!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the 3rd and final set of molars to erupt in the adult dentition. For most people, they begin erupting in the mid-teen years into the late 20s. Some people never have problems with their wisdom teeth, while others do. Most of the time, the problems are due to a lack of space for the tooth to erupt fully into the mouth.
Removing the wisdom teeth may be done early on if problems are spotted, or after the patient begins to experience discomfort. The most common reasons we extract these teeth typically include conditions like:
- Decay around the wisdom tooth
- Gum disease
- Pain, swelling, or infection
- Impacted teeth
- Damage to adjacent teeth
If you suspect that your wisdom teeth are coming in, schedule an exam and x-ray for quick answers to all of your questions!
