If you have a severely decayed tooth or an impacted tooth, our dentist may recommend tooth extraction. Tooth extraction prevents damage from occurring in the surrounding teeth. We encourage you to contact our Holland, Mi dental office with any questions you may have and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Piero and his friendly staff at his painless dentistry.
Why extract a tooth?
Not all teeth can be saved.
Is a routine procedure.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While removing the tooth isn’t the preferred solution, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to health and function. Safely removing teeth is an operation that we’ve conducted many, many times with minimal discomfort to our patients. After the tooth has been removed, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.
Conditions that require tooth removal:
- 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
