What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While our dentist and team strive to help you keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime, certain conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. No matter the need for the extraction, you can rest assured that our team will do all we can to provide you with a dental experience that is as comfortable as possible. We are also happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you both before and after the tooth extraction in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to ensure that your smile is healthy and functional.

Do I need tooth extraction?

Dr. Alberto A. Herrero may recommend removing a tooth if:

  • The tooth has suffered extensive decay or damage that cannot be repaired with a dental filling, crown, or other restorative treatment
  • Serious infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • A primary tooth (baby tooth) is not falling out and is blocking the way for an erupting permanent tooth
  • There are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth, resulting in overcrowding

If you are experiencing tooth pain, we welcome you to contact our office today. We are committed to helping you improve your oral health.
