Protect Your Best Feature With an Oral Surgical Procedure

At Greenville Family Dentistry, our goal is to offer you quality and compassionate dental care. Because we understand that surgery can be uncomfortable for patients, we prioritize your comfort. For example, we use modern technology like digital X-rays and digital impressions to make your appointments easier. Our private operatories are outfitted with blankets and TVs, and you can receive laughing gas sedation to help you stay calm.

If you need surgery on your smile, we’ll ensure it’s the best possible solution for your oral health needs. We offer:

  • Tooth ExtractionIt’s never our first choice to extract a tooth, but sometimes it’s necessary to safeguard your smile from further damage or infection. After your tooth has been gently removed, we can replace it with a restoration which can be paired with an implant for better oral health.
  • Wisdom Teeth RemovalIf you are between the ages of 17 and 25, you may notice the signs your wisdom teeth are coming in. While some people have no problems with these third molars, others can experience complications. We’ll examine you to determine if a removal is necessary to protect your teeth.

One of the reasons people need an extraction is because their oral health isn’t at its best. We highly recommend visiting us twice a year to protect your teeth and gums from disease or damage. If you don’t have insurance, you can sign up for our membership plan to get coverage on preventive care services for a small monthly fee.

If you need oral surgery in Greenville, call 618-844-8588 for an appointment. You can also request an appointment online. It’s our goal that you won’t have to visit an outside oral surgeon!

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

Tooth extraction is often needed if a tooth is too damaged to repair or if it is damaging your other teeth. In some cases, you need to have teeth removed to make room for dentures or another dental restoration. If necessary, we’ll recommend a bone graft to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants.

When is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance or medical insurance may cover a portion of your oral surgery. We recommend you check with your individual carriers to find out what they will and won’t pay for before you have any work done. That way there aren’t any big surprises in store for you. As a convenience, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit and Sunbit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

After your oral surgery, you should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours. Doing too much too soon can increase your healing time. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days to prevent complications.
