At Dr. Jason M. Peterson’s dental office, your smile is our top priority. While we do everything within our power to save and repair your natural teeth, there are some circumstances that may require us to remove a tooth from your smile. This process of completely removing a tooth from the jawbone is known as a tooth extraction. There are many reasons why we would have to remove a tooth, but you can rest assured that it will only be suggested if we feel it is absolutely necessary for the overall health of your smile. After a tooth extraction, we will provide you with multiple restorative options to replace the lost tooth and return your smile to optimal function and beauty.

A tooth extraction in Idaho Falls, Idaho, may be suggested to:

  • Remove a tooth that is beyond repair
  • Prevent infection from a severely decayed tooth from spreading
  • Repair a smile suffering from advanced gum disease
  • Prepare for orthodontic work

No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, our dentist and team is here to help you feel confident and excited about the future of your smile. There is no reason to fear a tooth extraction. If you have any questions about this process, please give our dental office a call. We would be happy to help you in any way we can.
