Although the extraction of teeth is undesirable, it is a common, necessary procedure in certain situations. If a tooth cannot be restored, or if the restoration may be compromised, extraction would be indicated. The doctors here at Steadman Family Dentistry not only have advanced training in extractions, they have practiced in public health clinics where extractions are routine. That means our doctors are highly experienced and proficient in extractions, so you can be confident the procedure will go as smoothly as can be expected. In addition, we are able to place bone grafts at the time of extraction in case dental implants are planned for that site in the future.
