When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

You can trust that our team at Frandsen Dental of West Jordan will not recommend tooth extraction unless it is absolutely necessary. Other restorative options will also be considered and tried; however, if other forms of treatment are unsuccessful, we will likely need to remove the tooth to avoid further harm to your oral health.

The most common reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • Severe decay that has formed and is putting nearby healthy teeth at risk
  • Extreme facial trauma that causes a tooth to no longer be viable/functional
  • Overcrowding that is expected to prevent successful orthodontic treatment
  • The need for dental prostheses, but existing natural teeth are likely to fall out
  • Baby teeth will not fall out on their own but need to be removed to make room for permanent tooth eruption
  • Advanced gum disease that is causing bone loss and existing teeth to loosen
