At The Smile Center, our focus is on keeping your natural teeth whenever possible to preserve your healthy smile. With some cases of dental damage, though, the best course of action is getting tooth extractions in Georgetown, SC.
If you do need to have a tooth removed, you are in good hands with our experienced dentist, Dr. John Miller. He will extract your tooth as quickly and painlessly as possible using the latest dental technology. You can:
- End your dental pain
- Restore full function of your mouth
- Keep your smile healthy
To find out if tooth removal is your best dental solution, call The Smile Center today at 843-492-5026 to schedule an appointment. Ask how you can save money on your extraction with our in-house savings plan, too.
Extract Problem Teeth & Regain Comfortable Oral Function
Even though we do all we can to preserve your natural teeth, there are times that removing a tooth is in your best interest, such as when:
- A tooth is too weakened by infection or decay
- A tooth is too damaged for a dental crown to repair it
- We need to prepare your mouth for dentures or dental implants
Dr. Miller reserves this procedure as a last resort and can often solve dental problems with standard tooth fillings, dental crowns, and root canal therapy. But when the best course of action is to remove a tooth, we will make sure your treatment is comfortable and successful.
Feel Relaxed During an Extraction With Dental Sedation
Before your extraction procedure, we will numb your mouth using The Wand®, a computerized system that regulates the proper amount of anesthetic for a pain-free experience. You won’t have to deal with residual numbness following your procedure, so you’ll get your usual mouth function back quickly!
If you’re nervous about treatment, we can also provide dental sedation to help you feel completely relaxed during your procedure.
We will also give you post-op instructions to help you care for the extraction site and reduce swelling and discomfort, like:
- Eat soft foods at first
- Take it easy for a day or so
- Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue
- Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water a few times a day
