Tooth Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal in Salt Lake City, UT
If you have experienced severe tooth decay, trauma, or periodontal disease, a tooth extraction may be the best solution for you. Some teeth may also need to be removed because of poor positioning or overcrowding. If you suspect that one or more of your teeth may need to be removed, including wisdom teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Theurer, DDS, to discuss your options at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City.
After you have consulted with your doctor and you have decided together that a tooth extraction is the right dental procedure for you, an appointment to extract the tooth—or teeth—will be scheduled. Our office provides tooth extraction services for routine tooth extractions as well as wisdom teeth removal services.
At the time of extraction, the doctor will numb your tooth and the surrounding oral tissue with a local anesthetic. You may feel a small amount of pressure during the tooth extraction, but you will not feel pain, because the local anesthetic numbs the nerves.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
At The Sugar House Dentist, we’ll only remove teeth if it is your best option for total oral health. Some of the reasons we may need to do this include the following:
- Tooth Blockage | At times a patient may have too many teeth causing crowding or blockage. This may prevent teeth from growing straight or allowing other teeth to grow in.
- Braces | In order to perform certain orthodontic treatments, a tooth may need to be removed to make room for straightening the teeth.
- Dentures | Dentures frequently require the removal of teeth in order to fit the dental restoration appliances.
- Fractured Tooth | A tooth with severe damage may not allow for successful restoration and may need to be extracted.
- Periodontal Disease | Periodontal disease, or gum disease, may cause gum deterioration causing an inability to support healthy teeth.
If you need a tooth extracted, we’ll let you know the reason why. We can also replace your tooth, so you won’t have a gap in your smile!
