Signs You May Need a Tooth Extraction
Advanced Tooth Infection
An infected root canal is very painful and if left untreated, can cause the infection to spread. In cases where the infection is advanced, we may recommend pulling the tooth to protect your oral health and avoid complications.
Severe Gum Disease
If your gum disease is left untreated, it can cause gum recession and lead the gums to pull away from your tooth. If the tooth becomes loose enough, extracting it may be your best option.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful and cause your other teeth to shift position, leading to dental crowding, abscesses, and other painful oral conditions. Extracting wisdom teeth will prevent future complications for your smile.
Major Tooth Decay
A tooth with severe decay may not be repairable with a filling or even a dental crown, making it a candidate for extraction.

"I Was So Impressed With the Whole Team" Praise For Our Greater Ogden, UT, Team
Living in a small town, I’m used to traveling to see a specialist. I’m so grateful my dentist recommended Dr. Ryan Austin! He has an office on the south end of Brigham City. They were able to get me in quickly and I was so impressed with the whole team. My surgery went great and Dr. Austin called my that night to check on me. When I had questions later during the next week I was able to text him and he responded promptly. He is careful and thorough. He is also kind and personable. I definitely recommend him to anyone! Thank you to the team there who made my surgery day, not so scary.View On Google
I’ve had Dr Austin help me out with two procedures now. He is very good at what he does. He cares about you and how your doing and it shows. I would recommend Dr Austin to anyone looking for a great oral surgeon! His staff was very good with me and explained things well. They even gave me a little refund because my insurance paid a little more than we thought. Very kind! Thanks everyone!View On Google
The Consequences of Keeping Damaged Teeth
A tooth that is infected, impacted, or too decayed to treat can affect all of your other teeth. Decay and infection can spread from tooth to tooth, harming your oral health. The more teeth that are affected, the more extensive your dental treatment will need to be to restore your oral health.
Our South Ogden dentists only recommend extractions if they're necessary to preserve your oral health.
Your Comfort Is Our #1 Priority
We understand that going to the dentist can be scary for patients. Maybe you’ve had a bad experience in the past or have a dental phobia that's preventing you from getting the care you deserve. We offer IV sedation for those who are anxious and want to doze off during their procedure. We also offer nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, free of charge.
Dr. Austin and his staff have extensive training on anesthesia safety protocols and regularly take continuing education courses in dentistry to best serve our patients. Your comfort is our highest priority, and we strive to help you feel safe and at ease during your entire visit at our South Ogden or Brigham City dental offices serving the Greater Ogden, UT, area.
Paying for Treatment
Our cost for tooth extraction is very reasonable, especially for a specialist. We accept nearly all dental insurance plans to make the cost as low as possible.
What to Expect during Treatment
The Importance of Avoid Smoking
Our South Ogden, UT, dentist recommends avoiding smoking cigarettes for at least 72 hours after your tooth extraction. Immediately after your extraction, a clot will form to cover the extraction site. The sucking motion of smoking can prematurely dislodge this clot and cause dry socket, a painful condition that occurs when the nerves and bone at the extraction site are exposed.
