Despite our best efforts to save a tooth, sometimes removal is the only alternative. If this is necessary, Dr. Luerding and Bear Canyon Family Dentistry are committed to providing you the most comfortable, pain-free procedure possible.

Factors leading to a tooth removal include:

  • Extensive trauma
  • Substantial tooth decay
  • Gum Disease
  • Badly cracked or broken teeth

No one likes the idea of losing a tooth; however, there are options we can provide to fill the empty space or replace the tooth, such as:

  • Implants
  • Implant retained dentures, which look and feel like normal teeth
  • Traditional dentures
  • Dental bridges, which are three or more porcelain teeth fused together

For some the idea of having a tooth removed is scary. Don’t worry though, with our gentle and pain-free sedation methods you have nothing to fear. We can also work out payment options to fit your budget and keep you financially sound.
