Removing a permanent tooth from the mouth is usually the last resort in treating your teeth. However, if a tooth is damaged, either through decay or injury, past the point where its structure and anatomy can be reasonably salvaged, it is important for our dentists, Dr. Jason Wareham or Dr. Andrew Smith, to perform a tooth extraction to stop infection and other health problems from spreading to other parts of the mouth and body. If you think you may be in need of tooth extraction in Riverton, Utah, please call Silverwolf Dental Spa as soon as possible at 801-254-3490 to learn more about your options.
