Tooth Extractions

When life throws you curveballs, we're here to help!

Why Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?

So, you’re told you need a tooth extraction. It may seem scary, but there are times an extraction is needed to keep your smile healthy or to make room for orthodontics. After a thorough exam with one of our dentists in SimpsonvilleGreer, Boiling Springs, Greenville, or Woodruff, we may recommend a tooth extraction if:

  • A root canal cannot save a severely decayed tooth

  • Wisdom teeth need to be removed
  • Teeth need to be removed to make room for orthodontic treatment or other dental procedures

No matter your reason for needing a tooth extraction, our general dentistry team is here to help.
