What to Expect During Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are one of the most common procedures for patients in Phoenix. Anticipating the procedure can cause fear or nervousness, but it is important to your future oral health to follow through with the procedure. At Oral and Facial Surgeons of Arizona, we are experts in the field and routinely perform successful tooth extractions. With two offices in the Phoenix Metro area to choose from, comfortable tooth extractions have never been more convenient.

Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Options After Tooth Extractions

Patients have various treatment options when it comes to tooth replacement. A single missing tooth may be treated with a fixed permanent bridge while the removal of an entire arch of teeth necessitates an upper or lower denture. Dental implants are tremendously beneficial to patients who have experienced tooth loss, whether it is a single tooth or an entire arc. A fixed permanent bridge needs to have crowns on neighboring teeth to support the artificial crown.
