Tooth Extractions

We use the most advanced procedures and techniques to ensure less pain, less swelling, and more comfortable healing.

Your dentist, Dr. Shigley, or even you yourself may determine that you need a tooth or teeth removed due to infection, tooth decay, periodontal disease. Other teeth may need extraction due to fracture or misalignment. Allowing problem teeth to remain in place can lead to more problems including infection, advanced periodontal disease or even shifting of teeth. Dr. Shigley and his qualified staff at Palmetto Oral & Facial Surgery can help you determine which treatment options are available including keeping teeth versus removal of teeth and possible sedation/anesthesia options available to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. We will also be able to discuss possible options for replacement of teeth at your consultation visit.
