Dr. McGarry has now retired! Her associate Dr. Justin Schultz has now taken over the practice and is operating under the name Schultz Family Dentistry. To learn more about us, please visit our new website.

We can take your tooth out.

Do you have a tooth that is in an extreme amount of pain? Maybe you’ve already discussed options for saving your tooth with your dentist and simply can’t afford it. Perhaps you’re just not interested in keeping the tooth. If so, Dr. McGarry or Dr. Shultz can extract your tooth for you.

The procedure involves numbing the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, we will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow. In most cases, a small amount of bleeding is normal.

For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently afterward, for pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But very gently clean the teeth next to the tooth socket.

Don’t try to extract your tooth yourself. That’s painful and can lead to all sorts of complications.  Don’t forget to ask how it can be replaced as there are multiple types of treatment to put it back to chew well again!

Call us at 810-735-9426 for an appointment or contact our office today for more information.

“I have been going to Dr. McGarry for years. She always takes the time to talk to me about what is going on in my mouth. She knows the latest that is going on in dentistry and informs me how to stay healthy! Her staff is very kind and has done a wonderful job for me. I am fortunate to have dental insurance and they submit all the forms for me. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. McGarry to anyone!”
