If your teeth are severely damaged, our dentists may recommend that they be extracted. While our goal is always to provide conservative treatments that will help to protect and restore your teeth, an extraction may sometimes be necessary in order to preserve your oral health. Some of the conditions that may cause our dentists to recommend an extraction include:
- Severe infection which has destroyed your tooth and bone structure
- Tooth decay that has caused such significant damage that successful restoration is not possible
- Overcrowding of the teeth
- Dental trauma or injury that is too severe to be repaired or restored
Dr. Mirci and Dr. Dan will use great care when removing your tooth, performing the procedure as gently as possible and provide you with sedation options to help you manage your discomfort. Following the extraction, they will provide you with post-op care instructions to help you heal and recover properly.
Our dentists will also work with you to find the most appropriate replacement of your tooth. Depending on the number of teeth you had extracted and on your individual needs and desires your tooth replacement may be a dental implant, a bridge or a denture.
We invite you to call Mirci Dental at 801-486-1155 to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists and learn more about tooth extractions in Salt Lake City, Utah.
