If a tooth is severely infected, decayed, or damaged, a tooth extraction can help to begin restoring your smile’s health. Our talented and gentle dentist, Dr. Ostrowski, may recommend a tooth extraction if:
- The tooth is significantly decayed
- Overcrowding leaves too little space for all of the teeth in the mouth
- A large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
Tooth extraction can help to prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth and can help your mouth begin to heal. At Gaslight Village Family Dentistry, our dentists and dental team work hard to ensure that every dental treatment is comfortable and painless. If you are experiencing dental pain, we encourage you to contact our Grand Rapids, Michigan dental office today. We are eager to help you achieve optimal oral health!
