Teeth Extractions

Dental extractions or tooth pulling is most often necessary due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma. Call us today to learn more about our teeth extractions.

Teeth extractions are generally straight forward and usually performed while the patient is awake. A local anesthetic is administered for your comfort. Dr. Macks will first try to save the tooth if possible. If not, then with gentle care Dr. Macks will make sure you are absolutely comfortable and begin the five-15 minute process.

Reasons for Teeth Extraction:

  • Some teeth block other teeth from coming in.
  • Baby teeth sometimes don’t fall out in time for permanent teeth to come in.
  • When getting braces, some teeth may need to be extracted to create room.
  • Patients receiving cancer treatment may need to have teeth extracted.
  • Patients getting organ transplants may need teeth extracted.

For the past 30 years, Dr. Macks has performed dental extractions and our goal is to get you back on course with the least amount of down-time possible.

Absolutely the best team of dental experts around. I have been a patient of Dr. Macks since the late 1980s. I grind my teeth and have broken several, necessitating four implants. There can be a lot stress involved in such a dental history, but these folks make me feel right at home and well cared for no matter what issue I present. I'll never go anywhere else. I'm a life timer.

The best experience I’ve ever had. I have been to plenty of places for my Botox none of them compare to the experience I had. They were clean professional friendly 100% amazing

Wow! I had 10 root canals & lots of dental trauma before I gave up & got dentures... I only wore them when I had to, as despite many adjustments, they never fit, and made my mouth's roof & gums terribly sore, for years... Then a friend told me to see Dr.Machs. His education, background, & range of experience are stunning (I don't stun, as a rule...). As an RN, I didn't believe this Ievel of thorough evaluation, information, & genuine care was possible in this life. I can't recommend him and the staff highly enough.
