A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
Doctor Troy Hoover, DDS is conveniently located in Elizabethton, Tennessee for those in the local area of Elizabethton, Johnson City, & Bristol, Tennessee; and in Elk Park, Newland, or Banner Elk, North Carolina.
After working in dentistry since 1994, Dr. Troy Hoover has developed a theory on why people avoid dental work – pain. “That’s what keeps most people out of the office,” Troy Hoover said. “So many people are scared. We’re hoping to change that.” Have no fear! Dr. Troy Hoover understands that “dental phobia” is common and works with all patients to alleviate that fear. With twenty years of experience he has refined techniques to provide treatment that is as painless as possible.
"It is really quite impressive how Doctor Hoover's bedside manner, Alicia's positive attitude and Clementine's wagging acceptance helps a patient, who knows they are about to have a traumatic experience, to be comforted during the procedure. The procedure ends up with an absence of pain and Doctor Hoover's comments during the procedure can keep a person's anxiety level way down. And the service is very affordable"
