Teeth Extractions

Dental extractions or tooth pulling is most often necessary due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma.

Tooth 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 Tooth 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.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
