A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth and is performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay. Fortunately, modern dentistry makes routine tooth extractions relatively comfortable, painless procedures.
Simple extractions are usually performed under local anesthetic. They require only the use of instruments to elevate or grasp the visible portion of the tooth. Impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely extracted. Sometimes, extractions are needed of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment. If the tooth cannot be easily accessed, either because it has broken under the gum line or because it has not fully erupted, it may require surgical extraction. Dr. Trenton Paffenroth can give you more information about your particular situation and will make sure you are comfortable throughout the process.

Westhill dental educates you and explains every step. I am proud to say I go to Westhill Dental and I will tell everyone I know they are the best.
Great experience today at my first appointment at Westhill Dental in Greenville! Billie was great with being very informative on my x rays, my cleaning, and tips and tricks for future preventative care. Dr Trent was out of the office this week on vacation but I got to meet Dr Ian. I was more than impressed with how personable he was, definitely not the norm with any “medical” appointment. He took the time to explain terms I didn’t understand as well as explain the different options I had for my future dental health. Highly recommend and will be recommending this office to all!
This was my first experience and I appreciate the care that Nicole showed during my cleaning. She explained everything that she was doing and looking for during my new patient visit. Dr. Trent did the same and was very kind and personable. He explained what he was looking for and took the time to have a conversation to connect. I am truly glad I made the switch to Westhill Dental!😁
I have been a patient at Westhill Dental for about a year and I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Trent and his team. They are professional but yet so friendly and welcoming. I feel like family in just this short time. I have had exams/cleanings, a sleep study and a crown, and It has been a great experience. So glad I found them! Thank you for the great care.
