Gentle Extractions

At Parks Family Dental, we offer gentle extractions for patients whose oral health and overall well-being may be at risk. Before proceeding with treatment, we never pressure our patients to receive dental care, and we always explain the best options for their needs and lifestyle. 

Our dentist reviews all your treatment options while using his specialty training to help you feel safe and comfortable.

Your dentist may recommend a dental extraction if your oral and physical health is at risk. For more complex cases, we refer our patients to a local, trusted oral surgeon with which we have a partnership.

What Is a Gentle Tooth Extraction?

A gentle tooth extraction in Mauldin, SC may be necessary for many different reasons, such as an infection, deep tooth decay, orthodontics, or baby teeth that won’t fall out to make room for adult teeth. An untreated infection, decay, or other dental issue can cause pain and discomfort, and sometimes, the only option is to remove the tooth.

Dr. Lyle Parks and the Parks Family Dental team will assess your needs so you can know exactly what to expect. 

What Is the Tooth Extraction Process?

Parks Family Dental is a full-service family dental office that offers chairside treatment and mild sedation to calm our patients' nerves. We also use a local anaesthetic to numb the extraction site so you do not experience any pain or discomfort. 

Dr. Parks first examines your entire mouth, assesses your unique situation, and provides a diagnosis. If the tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or crowding other teeth, we will suggest a practical course of action. Every treatment option depends on your health history and the severity of your case.

The Benefits of Tooth Removal

When you have a damaged or diseased tooth, and we cannot save it, our dentist may recommend removing the tooth.

Some of the benefits of having a gentle tooth extraction include:

  • Improve oral health
  • More space in the jaw for orthodontics
  • Protect against the spread of decay or infection
  • Relieve your tooth pain

If you have a tooth removed, our dentists will offer you attractive tooth replacement options. We design all of our restorations with high-quality materials so your improved smile looks, feels, and functions comfortably. 

We also offer CEREC same-visit dental crowns so you can leave our office the same day with a complete smile because we create your crown with our on-site milling machine.

We also offer dentures, bridges, and more. Whatever your needs are, you can count on our team to ensure you have the exceptional results you desire.
