What is a tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction is simply the removal of a tooth. At Gentle Dental Arts, our experienced dentist and dental team understand that the loss of a tooth can have a large impact on the health, function, and appearance of your smile. We are careful to only recommend tooth extraction when it is the best option for restoring the health of your smile. In addition, we offer several options for replacing your missing tooth following the extraction. Dr. Alexander Larsen is happy to discuss dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, and other options with you both before and after your tooth extraction in Orem, Utah.

Should I have my tooth pulled?

We may recommend a tooth extraction in the following cases:

  • Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and surrounding bone
  • The tooth is so severely decayed or damaged that we cannot effectively restore it with a crown, filling, or other type of restoration
  • There are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

If you are experiencing any type of tooth pain, please call our dental office today at 801-788-4922, or stop by. We are committed to restoring your smile to optimal health and function.
