Our goal at Great Lakes Dentistry in Shelby Township, MI is to take care of your overall oral health and do everything within our power to save your natural teeth. However, some circumstances may arise that necessitate the complete removal of a tooth from its place in your jawbone. This is commonly referred to as a tooth extraction. There are many reasons why Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our gentle dentist, may suggest a tooth extraction in Shelby Township, Michigan including:

  • Severe tooth decay and damage
  • Shattered teeth
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • In preparation for orthodontics
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

We are able to perform both simple and surgical tooth extractions. Our team uses the greatest care and skill when performing a tooth extraction, guiding you through each step of the treatment. We also provide you with detailed instructions on how to take care of your smile at home through the duration of the healing process. Your comfort is of the utmost importance to us, and we work hard to ensure you have a positive experience each and every time you visit our office. If you are interested in learning more about tooth extractions, and the many cosmetic and restorative options we have available to replace your lost teeth, please do not hesitate to contact our office today.

Great experience! Loved the office and the music, too! I am very excited about getting my implants. Thanks, Dr. V!

Let me start by saying that I have not seen a dentist in a very long time and I have HUGE anxiety about dental work. Dr. Van de Vyver and his staff (especially his hygienist, Samantha) are amazing, simply put. They put me at ease with their lighthearted small-talk and let me see what they were doing with a hand mirror during my cleaning, which was so helpful. When I went back to have a wisdom tooth extracted they went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and at ease. My anxiety about dental work is non existent now and I'm so thankful he was able to work on me quickly, efficiently and with kindness. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter how far the drive. He's great!

This was a visit for my 85 yr old mom. Everyone in the office was so pleasent and went out of there way for us. The fee is very reasonable. The entrance was not friendly for someone who can not walk well. The ramp is very far from the unmarked door to the office. We will certainly go back. I would become a patient if my insurance was excepted.

Very good cleaning experience. Dr. V. did a great job at numbing my sensitive gum line.

Dr. Van de Vyver is new in the area, not dentistry. He is friendly and upbeat. Has all the latest technology, things I never seen before. He did a filling and crown (which he makes on site). Everything went smooth. I needed one of my wisdom teeth removed which he did yesterday. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it, but he did a nice job and I'm fine today (without pain pills). I had one done many years ago and was in pain for 5 days.
