If you have a tooth that cannot be saved due to decay or wisdom teeth that are impacted or growing crookedly, you may need an extraction.
Many local dentists refer patients needing extractions to oral surgeon Mark Newey in Clearfield, UT, particularly if surgery is needed.
How does Dr. Newey of The Oral & Facial Surgery Center perform a tooth extraction without causing pain or anxiety?
Ending Oral Pain With an Extraction
Leaving a broken, infected, or impacted tooth in place may cause you more pain in the long run than a simple tooth extraction using gentle techniques and local anesthetic.
To learn more about our comfortable extraction treatments, contact Dr. Newey at our dental practice for a consultation. We are located about 30 minutes north of Salt Lake City, Utah, via I-15.
Why See Our Oral Surgeon for Tooth Extractions?
Many regular dentists do not perform complex tooth extractions, such as cases involving wisdom teeth that have impacted bone, gum, or neighboring dental tissue.
Dr. Newey is an oral surgeon, meaning he is a dentist with years of specialized oral surgical training. Therefore, he is qualified to perform all types of extractions.
Dr. Newey can develop a customized post-extraction plan for you, such as replacing extracted teeth with dental implants and lifelike restorations.

6 Reasons for Tooth Extractions
Gum disease (that has caused a tooth to become loose)
Severe crowding (no room for the tooth)
Orthodontics prep (crowded teeth could prevent alignment)
Impaction (wisdom teeth that don't have enough room to grow normally)
The Extraction Process
- Normal Extraction
- Dr. Newey will simply grasp the tooth with his forceps and gently move it back and forth until it becomes loose enough for removal.
- Surgical Extraction
- In the case of impacted wisdom teeth, Dr. Newey will precisely incise gum and bone tissue where the tooth is trapped. He will grasp the tooth with forceps (sort of like dental pliers) and move it back and forth to loosen it. He may separate the tooth into sections to make it easier to extract.
What Is Recovery Like?
