ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (PRWEB) September 30, 2020
Dr. Kevin Hogan invites patients with dental pain or a moderate to severe toothache in Isle of Palms, SC for an evaluation and tooth extraction, with or without a referral. Although he always takes a conservative approach to care first, if an extraction is the only solution, he offers gentle solutions to relieve pain and remove infection. At his Mt. Pleasant, SC practice, Dr. Hogan provides precise treatment to treat tooth pain as well as restorative dental implants after extraction. This experienced dental team continues to take additional measures to keep the office sanitized and safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
A toothache is often the result of decay, infection, or abscess of a tooth. Tooth pain begins when acid from bacterial plaque breaks down tooth enamel and creates pits (cavities) in the teeth. Pain can also be the result of an infection caused by gum disease that damages the soft tissues and bone supporting a tooth. A tooth abscess occurs when bacteria enter the tooth via a large cavity or crack and infects the tooth pulp. In these cases, Dr. Hogan will first attempt conservative treatment, such as a cavity filling or root canal, to treat a toothache. If these methods fail, tooth extraction is necessary to restore proper health and comfortable function.
A modern tooth extraction is simple, fast, and comfortable, thanks to today’s minimally invasive techniques and sedation dentistry. At the tooth extraction appointment, the first step is to administer necessary sedation and numb the treatment site with a local anesthetic. The numbing agent will ensure a painless procedure, while the sedation can help calm feelings of anxiety or fear. During the procedure, the tooth is gently loosened from the gum tissues and socket before being removed. Most patients report they felt only slight pressure during the procedure, but no pain. If gum disease or an abscess is present, antibiotics may be needed to resolve any lingering infection.
Dr. Hogan has been routinely providing tooth extraction procedures for over 35 years and has achieved mastery in extracting teeth as well as replacing them with permanent dental implants. With a design that mimics natural tooth structure, dental implants replace both the tooth root and the crown for a truly comparable solution after a natural tooth has been removed. Dental implants look and function just like real teeth and are indistinguishable from existing natural teeth for a seamless, attractive smile. Dr. Hogan provides dental implant treatment at his practice to help patients return to a normal quality of life after tooth extraction.
