Although our team does everything we can to avoid tooth extractions, at times they are recommended for the benefit of your oral health or appearance of your smile. We offer dental sedation to help you feel comfortable throughout your entire visit. If you are in need of a tooth extraction in Utah, or would like a second opinion, we invite you to schedule your visit today!
Reasons for a Recommended Tooth Extraction May Include:
- Crowded Teeth
- Preparation for Orthodontic Treatment
- Severely Damaged or Broken Tooth
- Impacted Tooth
- Periodontal Disease
A tooth that needs to be removed could either require a simple extraction or oral surgery depending on the condition and position of the tooth. After examining your smile, your dentist will recommend the best possible treatment for the health of your smile. A tooth extraction is only performed after your dentist ensures that you are completely comfortable and the area around the tooth is numbed. Following your extraction, our team can give you detailed instructions for caring for your smile as it heals.

And some patients won’t experience discomfort until they are in their thirties. No matter your age, if you are experiencing trouble with your wisdom teeth, schedule a consultation with our team. After examining your teeth and performing x-rays, your dentist can provide the best recommendations concerning your wisdom teeth.

There are various reasons one or more of your wisdom teeth may need to be removed, including:
