Your natural teeth really are the best ones for your smile. However, there are times when our periodontist may suggest a tooth extraction. Teeth that are extremely damaged or decayed may require removal. If you have too many teeth in your mouth resulting in crowding, extraction may be the best course of treatment. You may need to have one or more teeth removed to prepare for an orthodontic treatment. At Tucson Dental Implants and Periodontics we provide surgical extractions in Tucson, Arizona.
