Dr. Geelan in Downtown Portland does everything he can to save a patients natural tooth. But sometimes a tooth simply needs to be removed. Extractions are actually a quick and simple procedure, but we tend to think of an extraction as a last resort for your oral health. It’s not a solution; it’s more of a compromise. However, an extraction is sometimes the best available option. We can provide patients with some options to replace an extracted tooth (if the gums, jaw are healthy) at a later time.
If you think you need a tooth extracted, call Geelan Dental Care to setup an appointment. Our dental office is located in Downtown Portland off of Main St, across from the World Trade Center. It many cases, patients can be seen the same day that they call, especially for dental emergencies.
