Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at Magnolia Falls Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center in Powdersville, SC. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!
Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment. With the exception of wisdom teeth, we frequently recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). The dental implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of your extracted tooth root and includes the added benefit of stimulating healthy bone growth.
Once this post has integrated fully with the bone, a custom dental crown is permanently attached using an abutment (connector piece). This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. Receiving this care from a surgical specialist with expert training in dental implants, you will likely be able to have a dental implant placed in the same visit as your tooth extraction. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
