Tooth removal in Florence isn’t always easy, even in the best circumstances. It can be downright tricky if there are complications such as a partially or fully impacted tooth. Thanks to their extensive training, including postgraduate programs in a hospital setting, our dentists are well equipped to handle any tooth extraction. Our team has more than 200 years of combined dental experience among them. One of our doctors even teaches at SCMU.We want to get back on the road to health Read Transcript
It's all about planning. When the patient first comes in, that's the first thing I do. I ask the patient, Okay, what's your eventual goal? I mean, what are we trying to achieve here? Like, what is that, and I'm going to talk to the patient about the impact of losing that tooth, how essential that tooth is. Not every tooth is the same. Now, you might have a wisdom tooth that needs to be removed, and it might not have an impact if you lose that versus, for example, your first molar. That first molar is very important. How much bone you have or how many good teeth we have, right? So are we going to restore this with a single implant? Are we going to do a full ... maybe a bridge?
There's a lot of ways we can replace teeth, and each patient is different. So really, we can't tell you the answer until you come into the office. We have to take our records, take our X-rays, do our exam. I mean, we need it all before we can come up with an individualized, personalized treatment plan so we can tell you what are your best options for replacement.
In addition to experienced doctors, we’ll treat you with:
- 3D Imaging – More detailed than other kinds of X-rays, 3D imaging gives us a highly detailed view of your teeth and surrounding facial anatomy, including tooth roots and nerves. This will make us aware of any possible complications before your procedure starts, so we can create a plan to proactively address them.
- PRP Therapy – We can use a small amount of your own blood to create platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a material that speeds healing and lowers the risk of infection.
Your tooth extraction is in expert hands at Advanced Dental Center! Call 843-627-4076 if you need to have teeth removed, even wisdom teeth.
Ease Your Extraction With Sedation
We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing as your tooth comes out. If you’re feeling nervous, we can calm you with dental sedation. You can choose oral conscious sedation in the form of a pill.
In addition, to keep you comfortable the entire time you’re in our chair, our team will thoroughly explain your procedure and answer any questions before your treatment starts. You can also enjoy comforts like bottled water and a soothing neck massage from our licensed massage therapist.
We’ll Talk to You About Tooth Replacement Too
If you’re losing a tooth, it’s time to think about replacing it. It’s a good idea to address tooth replacement options with our dentists. If you want a dental implant, they may want to perform a bone graft or other oral surgery procedure during your tooth extraction to prepare the site for an implant. Dental implants aren’t your only option; we can also replace missing teeth with a dental bridge or dentures.
