What Are the Benefits of an Extraction?

Pain Relief

A badly damaged or infected tooth can cause extreme pain, affecting your everyday quality of life. For teeth that can’t be treated with a root canal, tooth extraction is the best option to eliminate pain for good.

Improve Oral Health

Keeping a decayed tooth may cause more harm than good. It can cause bacteria to spread to the surrounding teeth and gums, causing more problems in the long run and putting your oral health at risk.

Preparation for Orthodontics

Crowded or impacted teeth can cause problems over time and affect your bite. Tooth extraction creates enough space in your mouth for orthodontic treatment, allowing your teeth to gradually shift into their optimal positions.

We Employ a Gentle Extraction Technique

Dr. Austin uses advanced instruments and equipment that allow for as simple of an extraction as possible with minimal removal of bone to allow for the best opportunity to later place a dental implant in the extraction site. He also uses high-speed nitrogen-driven hand pieces that allow for minimal trauma and make the procedure go as quickly as possible.

Committed to Providing Expert Dental Care

As an oral surgeon, Dr. Austin has performed hundreds of tooth extractions to patients throughout South Ogden, Brigham City, and communities throughout Utah. He has extensive training and years of education far beyond that of a general dentist. He performs extractions as conservatively as possible, using the latest techniques and tools in dentistry. If you choose to get dental implants, Dr. Austin can place them in-house, making our office a convenient option for your dental needs.

"I Was So Impressed With the Whole Team" 5-Star Reviews

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.

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!

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. 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. 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.

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


Dr. Austin uses advanced technology to evaluate your oral health and determine if an extraction is right for you. He will explain every step to you and answer any questions you have.


The extraction area is numbed with local anesthesia. We can also administer nitrous oxide or IV sedation at this time for maximum comfort.


Dr. Austin will gently rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it from the socket. You will feel pressure, but no pain. If necessary, he will section the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.


Once extraction is complete, Dr. Austin will suture the area and place a piece of gauze for you to bite on.


A blood clot eventually forms in the extraction site. We provide you with all aftercare instructions and check up on you to see how you are doing.
