Dental Extractions

Dental Checkup


When you are in intense dental pain or have suffered damage to a tooth, we can perform a tooth extraction, if it’s necessary. We can keep you comfortable and pain-free during your appointment. Get the relief of having the pain and problem totally gone!

As soon as you suspect you have a major dental issue, contact Mauna Family Dental in Hilo so we can help you. If you come to us for regular checkups, we’ll also monitor whether you need wisdom teeth removal in order to prevent future problems.



Many of our dental extraction appointments are to get wisdom teeth pulled. Schedule an appointment to have your wisdom teeth examined and if we can not extract at our office, then we can send you to a trusted oral surgeon who can. 

Here are several problems that lead to tooth extractions:

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: You may need your wisdom teeth pulled if your growing wisdom teeth are running up against a bone, another tooth, or your gums. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause serious pain and damage. Wisdom teeth removal can relieve pain and promote dental health.

  • Crowded Teeth: Growing teeth can move other teeth out of their healthy positions—or even directly damage other teeth. The growing tooth is sometimes better off being extracted.

  • Infection: A bacterial infection can cause so much damage to a tooth that its structure is lost. It then has to come out in order to protect your health.

  • Accidental Damage: Sports injuries and other accidents can break a tooth so severely that we have to take it out quickly. We can get you through emergencies quickly. 


When you need your wisdom teeth pulled or any other type of extraction, we can use laughing gas to keep you comfortable.
