When a tooth is severely damaged to the point where the structure of the tooth cannot be reasonably salvaged, our dentist, Dr. Tyson Gundersen, may suggest a tooth extraction. This will allow us to prevent the spread of infection from the injured or decayed tooth to other parts of the mouth and body and place a more stable restoration through a dental bridge, implant or dentures. If you think you might need a tooth extraction in Butte, Montana, please call Silver Creek Family Dentistry at 406-494-7058 for more information.
