Dr. Scott Ellard takes every measure possible to prevent tooth loss. However, there are some situations where a tooth may need to be extracted, such as when it has experienced severe decay or periodontal disease, infection, or serious fractures. In these cases, a tooth extraction may help to preserve the health of the remaining teeth. We welcome you to call Scott Ellard Dentistry at 269-329-1880 for more information about tooth extraction in Portage, Michigan, and to schedule your appointment with our dentist.
