If all documents with that term are deleted, then this will be fixed by 
adding a facet.mincount=1 parameter to your facet URL.  If you are using 
the JSON facet API, then there is a mincount parameter that you can 
place into your JSON request. I've never actually used the JSON facet 
API, but there is documentation:

The mincount parameter might make it unnecessary to optimize.  But if 
you are updating a LOT of your documents on a regular basis, you might 
find that it gives you better performance, so optimizing once a day 
during a time when traffic is low might be useful.
