Tooth Extractions

Dr. Scott Kibler and Dr. Michael Skovira may recommend tooth extraction if you have teeth that are severely decayed or damaged beyond the point where they can be effectively repaired. While our goal is to protect your teeth and smile as much as possible, an extraction may sometimes be needed in order to preserve the health of your remaining teeth. If you have any questions about tooth extractions in Summerville, South Carolina, or want to make an appointment with our experienced dentists, call Old Trolley Dental Associates today at 843-376-6929.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

Our dentist and team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so that you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.

We are committed to improving your smile!
