Why Extract a Tooth?

If you have a severely decayed tooth or an impacted tooth, our dentist may recommend tooth extraction in Holland, MI. Tooth extraction will prevent damage from occurring to the surrounding teeth. We encourage you to contact our dental office with any questions you may have and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Piero and his friendly staff and his painless dentistry.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While removing the tooth is never the preferred solution, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to the best possible health and function. After the tooth has been removed, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.

"I have been having a horrible time with my teeth, having neglected my oral care by not visiting a dentist regularly for the last decade . The result being very bad cavities and an infection causing incredible pain. I was fortunate enough to be sent to Dr. Piero by a coworker .The staff was understanding and I was surprised when I was informed that I would have to lose the tooth . I was worried about the pain involved . The extraction of my tooth, a large molar was the least painful dental procedure I have ever had. I would recommend everyone go to Dr.Piero for there dental needs."

While tooth extraction is not preferable, some conditions may require it. Among these are:


  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Damage or decay to the tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
