Tooth Extractions: Preserve Your Smile

At iSmile Dentistry, we are committed to preserving the health and beauty of your smile. While our primary goal is to prevent any damage to your teeth, there are cases where a tooth extraction becomes necessary. Our skilled dental professionals in Utah and Arizona are dedicated to providing exceptional care during this procedure. If you have a severely decayed, broken, or diseased tooth, we are here to help. Contact our iSmile offices in Utah or Arizona to schedule an appointment and learn more about this procedure.

Why Tooth Extraction?

Although we strive to avoid tooth extraction whenever possible, certain conditions may require it to restore your smile’s health and functionality. In such cases, we offer excellent tooth replacement treatments to ensure your smile is restored to optimal beauty and function.

There are several conditions that may indicate the need for a tooth extraction:

1. Severe infection: If an infection has extensively damaged the tooth and its supporting bone structure, extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and preserve your oral health.

2. Irreparable decay: When decay has severely damaged a tooth beyond repair, making successful restoration impossible, extraction may be the best course of action.

3. Overcrowding: Sometimes, there are too many teeth in the mouth, causing crowding and preventing proper alignment. Extracting one or more teeth can create the space needed for proper positioning and alignment.

Our Approach and Post-Treatment Care

During the tooth extraction procedure, our experienced dentist and team exercise great care and skill to ensure your comfort and minimize any discomfort. We prioritize making your experience as painless as possible.

Once the tooth extraction is complete, we will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions. These instructions will guide you on how to take care of your smile during the healing process. Our friendly dental office is always available to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the size of the extraction, you may require stitches. Typically dissolvable stitched are utilized, so when the gums heal, they dissolve and fall out on their own.
Traditional tooth extractions heal within 1-2 weeks. However, if you notice any symptoms such as fever, intense pain, inflammation, swelling, or numbness, please call our office right away.

With an anesthetic, you likely will only feel the pinch of the injection; then, the extraction procedure should be painless.
