In certain cases, extracting one or more teeth can help to improve your oral health. When you visit our dental office in Taylorsville, Utah, Dr. Hill may recommend tooth extraction if your tooth is:
- Impacted (when a tooth cannot properly break through the gums)
- Largely destroyed by infection
- Significantly decayed or damaged
- Severely affected by periodontal disease
Tooth Extractions Prevent Infection from Spreading
Tooth extraction can help to prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. Our talented dentist and dental team work hard to ensure that every procedure, including tooth extraction, is a painless, comfortable dental experience.
Taylorsville Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common tooth extraction procedures is wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth are usually the last four teeth to erupt in the mouth, and often there is not enough room in the mouth for them to properly erupt. If wisdom teeth are not removed, they can cause a number of dental health problems, including periodontal disease and tooth decay. At Michael B. Hill DDS PC, we recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed before these problems occur. We welcome you to call our Taylorsville dental office today to learn more about tooth extraction and wisdom teeth removal. We look forward to caring for your smile!
