At Anderson Family Dentistry, we provide gentle tooth extractions. Dr. Robert D. Anderson, our caring dentist, will not recommend tooth extraction unless it is the best option for improving your oral health. We may recommend that you receive a tooth extraction if your smile is affected by the following conditions:
- Infection that has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or supporting bone structure
- Insufficient room for all of the teeth in the mouth
- Severe decay or damage to the point that a tooth cannot be effectively restored with a dental filling, crown or other type of dental restoration
If a tooth is infected, tooth extraction can prevent the infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. We do not perform extraction of impacted third molars (wisdom teeth) at our dental office; we will be happy to refer you to a specialist for this procedure. Dr. Anderson and our skilled dental team will ensure that your tooth extraction in Clearfield, Utah, is as comfortable and painless as possible. We offer a number of tooth replacement options, and we will be happy to discuss these options with you before your tooth extraction treatment.
