Tooth Extractions

The removal of single teeth may be necessary to maintain the health of your remaining teeth and mouth. After evaluating all options and doing as much as possible to save a tooth, extraction may be your best or only option. The most common reasons for tooth extractions are:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Severe decay
  • Badly broken tooth, beyond repair
  • Poorly positioned teeth

After determining that an extraction is necessary, Fortson Dentistry will discuss options with you for replacing the extracted tooth. Having a gap in your teeth can cause the teeth and jaw to shift, creating problems with chewing and dental health.


If you think you’re a candidate for a tooth extraction and you’d like to know the cost of a tooth extraction without insurance or with insurance, contact our staff and they’ll be able to walk you through pricing.

Fortson Dentistry proudly serves Southeast Michigan and has helped countless patients with tooth extractions from the towns surrounding our three locations in Oak Park and Lathrup Village, which includes Southfield, Royal Oak, Berkley, Huntington Woods, and Ferndale.

The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. Fortson Dentistry will oversee your recovery and help you retain a smile full of vitality and joy.
