Tooth Extractions

Occasionally, it may be necessary to remove a tooth from your mouth to restore your dental health and smile to full function. 


Making Great Smiles Come True

At times, a tooth may become severely damaged or so decayed that it is beyond repair. In this instance, an extraction may be the best course of action. 

To discuss if a tooth extraction is the right solution for you, please contact our office to make an appointment with Dr. Damjan Jutric.  We serve Lakewood, Washington, Tacoma, DuPont, University Place, Spanaway and surrounding areas.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth.


While we try to avoid tooth removal whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, Dr. Damjan Jutric will consult with you offering the best tooth replacement treatment to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure

  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible

  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth


Dr. "J” and his dedicated team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly care for your smile as it heals. 

For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation, we invite you to call our office or visit Dr. Jutric today. 

We are committed to improving smiles in the Lakewood, Washington, Tacoma, DuPont, University Place, Spanaway and surrounding areas.
