  • "We love Davis Dental Care! Dr Smith is very knowledgeable and professional. I got a second opinion with Dr Smith for my sons braces and he is able to do the work in less time and for less money. We appreciate his honesty. Another thing that I appreciate is that the office is open on Fridays. A lot of dentists aren't open on Friday so that makes it easier to get in for appointments when it's most convenient for me. The staff is helpful and friendly. Thanks Davis Dental Care!" - Karen

  • "After finding out my dentist of 26 years didn't take my new insurance, I was extremely apprehensive about going to anybody new. Davis Dental Care was recommended to me by a coworker. I can honestly say I've never been more impressed with a place of business! From the moment I walked in and every time after, Gayle and the rest of the staff treated me like family. Every treatment has gone exceptionally smooth, from check in to check out. I now recommend Dr. Smith and Davis Dental Care to everyone I know!" - Brittney

  • "I have known Dr. Smith for 9 1/2 years. He has done ortho on my oldest daughter and myself. We both had great results and were out sooner than promised. My kids love going to him. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith. And if I ever need a crown I would go to him because he has the newest Cerec technology which allows crowns to be finished in one visit." - Sheri

  • "I have had some horrible experiences with dentists in the past! I was in the middle of the implant process and needed to finish. I decided to try Davis Dental. Dr. Smith was awesome! He made sure all the numbing medicine was working before he proceeded. He kept me updated about everything they were doing. Everyone is so friendly there too! Best dental experience I've had in years! I would highly recommend them!" - Ashley

Of course, unexpected situations sometimes occur that make an extraction necessary. If you find yourself in this situation, we are here to help!

Facing a Dental Extraction

Dental Extractions | Davis Dental CareFacing a dental extraction can create a number of questions and might feel stressful to you. At Davis Dental Care, we are here to walk you through the process and help you regain your oral health. Our experienced and highly skilled team makes the process of dental extractions and tooth replacement as stress-free and easy as possible.

Dr. Smith will guide you through the process of removing a troubled tooth and make sure you fully understand all your tooth replacement options so you can make the best decision for your health and your smile. Unlike many dental offices, we are often able to perform dental extractions here in our Layton, Utah, dental office without the need for a referral.

Reasons for Dental Extractions

In many cases, the need for a dental extraction arises due to an untreated condition such as a cracked tooth, infection, deep decay, or abscess. In other circumstances, you may have a wisdom tooth that does not have enough room to properly erupt, or you may experience overcrowding.

Car accidents and trauma due to sports or recreation are other common reasons why we may need to remove a damaged tooth. Whatever the reason, Dr. Smith will make sure that you are comfortable, help you understand your treatment, and provide you with valuable advice throughout.

Your Dental Extraction Appointment

Layton Dental Extractions | Davis Dental CareWe make patient comfort a top priority. Dr. Smith and our team understand that most patients are worried if treatment will hurt. We will monitor you closely throughout treatment to make sure that you are completely numb. After your treatment is complete, we will explain how to take care of your extraction site, manage any residual pain, and discuss all your tooth replacement options, if necessary.

While we understand that no one wants to lose a tooth, we strive to make the process as painless as possible – something our patients truly appreciate.

Dental Extraction Aftercare

Once your surgery is complete, you should avoid things like drinking through a straw and smoking. It is also a good idea to avoid chewing near your extraction site at least for a few days. We will show you how to clean the area and what to do if you feel a little sore. Over-the-counter pain medications will usually do the trick.
