Conditions That May Require an Extraction

Select Oral Surgery Services

Tooth Extractions
We offer gentle extractions in Wagener, SC to remove infection stemming from an unsalvageable decayed or damaged tooth. We can protect the empty socket from bone loss by performing bone grafting afterward, then help you choose the right tooth replacement option to restore your dental health and beauty. Dental implants provide a long-lasting and realistic replacement for an extracted tooth and can typically be placed the same day as an extraction. They look, feel, and perform just like the real thing!
Wisdom Tooth Removal
For problematic third molars, we offer wisdom tooth extractions right here in the comfortable setting of our office—no need to see outside specialists. We pull these teeth when they’re impacted or, whenever possible, before you even experience symptoms to prevent damage to your healthy teeth.

After Your Tooth Extraction

After a wisdom tooth extraction or after a tooth extraction that didn’t also include a dental implant, you can heal more quickly and minimize your risk of developing a dry socket by following established aftercare guidelines. Once a tooth is extracted, an empty space is left in the bone where the tooth roots used to be. This is known as a tooth socket. As part of the body’s natural healing process, a blood clot typically forms over an empty tooth socket. If this doesn’t happen, or does happen but the clot becomes dislodged, you can experience severe pain from the exposed nerves and bone. Avoid vigorous activities for a few days, don’t drink anything through a straw, gently rinse your mouth with warm saltwater, and avoid touching the extraction site with your toothbrush. If you begin to experience any symptoms of dry socket, including intense pain at the extraction site that radiates to your eyes and forehead, foul breath or a foul taste in your mouth or a noticeably empty socket, contact our Wagener, SC office and we’ll be able to get you back on track to a healthy smile.
