Tooth Extraction

Our skilled dentists may recommend a tooth extraction to begin the process of restoring your oral health after your tooth has been severely damaged. When performing your extraction, we will be as gentle as possible and do our best to help you feel comfortable, and we will work with you afterward to find a suitable replacement for your tooth. Contact Riverton Heights Dental Care today at 801-781-5784 to make your appointment with Dr. Brian Borg or Dr. Bryce Enslow and learn more about tooth extractions in Riverton, Utah.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

Our dentists and team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so that you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.

We are committed to improving your smile!
