At Flagstaff Downtown Dental, our team makes every effort to help patients preserve their valuable natural teeth, but there are situations that arise where extraction becomes an unfortunate necessity. For instance, these types of cases are likely to result in extraction:
- When a tooth suffers a traumatic injury and cannot be saved.
- When a tooth is heavily decayed and cannot be treated with normal restorative methods.
- When a patient is suffering from advanced periodontal (gum) disease.
- When one or more teeth need to be removed to make way for orthodontic treatment.
Patients can rest assured that Dr. Bacon and Dr. Lerud will prioritize your comfort at every opportunity during this procedure. If the removed tooth/teeth need to be replaced, our team will also partner with you in order to create a quality, personalized restorative solution as soon as possible.
