Simple and Surgical Extractions at Boiling Springs Family Dental


Tooth extractions are dental procedures involving the removal of teeth from the mouth. Simple extractions are performed on visible and easily accessible teeth. After numbing the area with local anesthesia, the dentist uses instruments to gently loosen and remove the tooth.

Surgical extractions are more complex and involve removing teeth that are broken, impacted, or not easily accessible. The dentist may need to make an incision in the gum, remove bone around the tooth, or section the tooth before extraction.

Both procedures prioritize patient comfort and may involve local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. After extraction, post-operative care is crucial for proper healing. Instructions include oral hygiene, diet restrictions, and prescribed medications.

Tooth extractions are performed to alleviate pain, prevent infection, and address dental issues. Dentists recommend extractions when other treatments are not viable or to prepare for orthodontics or restorative work.

Five stars. Dr. Williams and staff are very friendly and supportive. I’ve gone for regular check ups, fillings, and crowns and never had a bad experience. They were very accommodating when I had a few last minute emergencies and followed up regularly to ensure I was okay. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.
