What Is an Extraction?

An extraction is the complete removal of a tooth and its root. While this may seem frightening, Dr. Young and his team have performed countless extractions and only use the safest and most successful techniques. We always try and save your existing teeth. However, should you need a tooth removed, our South Salt Lake extraction services are gentle and effective.

Do I Need a Dental Extraction?

During your time with us, our team will thoroughly assess your dental health and the problem that is causing your visit. We will check the current state of your teeth and how they will impact your overall oral health. If we can't save a tooth, we will recommend an extraction. Some of the reasons you may need an extraction are:

  • Impacted teeth can cause discomfort and may impact neighboring teeth from under the gumline. During your regular visits, we will constantly assess the room in your jaws to see if your teeth are coming in properly. If you lack the space for wisdom teeth, an extraction can protect you from pain, infection, and other dental health issues.
  • Tooth decay that is severe and not treatable with a filling or crown might require an extraction. Dr. Young and our team will explore all options for saving your tooth, including partnering with a local endodontist, before recommending removal. Our goal is always to help you find an affordable solution when facing severe tooth decay.
  • Gum disease can become severe enough to affect the ligaments that support your teeth, causing them to become loose. Should this happen, an extraction is used to stop the spread of infection to other areas of your gums.
  • Dental emergencies can happen to anyone at any time. We will do everything possible to save a tooth damaged by accident. However, some teeth are damaged beyond repair and will require an extraction to restore your oral health.

Focused on Your Comfort

Our team is determined to provide you with exceptional care, even in challenging situations. We keep you knowledgeable about all treatment options and walk with you through every step of the process. Should you feel overwhelmed, our compassionate staff is here to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We offer nitrous and oral sedation upon request to help relieve your fears during an extraction. Our extensive experience with dental extractions allows us to provide you with quick, precise, and safe care.

Preserving Your Jaw Bone for Future Implants

Before performing an extraction, Dr. Young will work with you to determine a treatment plan to repair and restore your smile. If you are thinking about getting a dental implant at a later time, our dentist may suggest bone preservation to strengthen your jaw for future placement. Our goal is to provide comprehensive services to streamline your treatment.
