Our goal at Great Lakes Dentistry is to take care of your overall oral health and do everything within our power to save your natural teeth. However, some circumstances may arise that necessitate the complete removal of a tooth from its place in your jawbone. This is commonly referred to as a tooth extraction. There are many reasons why Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our gentle dentist, may suggest a tooth extraction in Royal Oak, Michigan including:

  • Severe tooth decay and damage
  • Shattered teeth
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • In preparation for orthodontics
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

We are able to perform both simple and surgical tooth extractions. Our team uses the greatest care and skill when performing a tooth extraction, guiding you through each step of the treatment. We also provide you with detailed instructions on how to take care of your smile at home through the duration of the healing process. Your comfort is of the utmost importance to us, and we work hard to ensure you have a positive experience each and every time you visit our office. If you are interested in learning more about tooth extractions, and the many cosmetic and restorative options we have available to replace your lost teeth, please do not hesitate to contact our office today. We would be happy to answer all of your questions.
