Patient FAQs: Learn More About Tooth Extractions in Oak Ridge, TN
Why Consider Extractions?
Our patients have found that in some cases, the best solution for their needs is to consider an extraction over other restorative tooth procedures that may be too costly or ineffective. For others, removing a compromised tooth is necessary to make room for dental implants or posts for attaching permanent dentures.
Why Does a Tooth Need to be Extracted?
The presence of a tooth that has been worn down by excessive decay can spread infection to surrounding healthy tissue—which worsens the pain and discomfort. Don’t let a bad tooth rob you of your oral health. Our tooth extractions offer effective treatment that brings relief. This important procedure prevents the spread of infection and relieves pain.
What Steps Should I Take to Consider Extractions?
At our practice in Oak Ridge, state-of-the-art technology works for you. Appointments for extraction include an in-depth evaluation, where the dentist will take x-rays and images of your teeth. Communication is the foundation for effective treatment. The dentist will discuss your clinical needs, which includes current health conditions and the medications you are taking. The dentist will determine if an extraction is necessary, but only if the affected tooth is beyond restorative care. Same-day treatment is available under certain circumstances.
What is the Cost of Tooth Extractions?
The cost of tooth extraction varies, and it depends on various factors including the complexity of your procedure. Rest assured, you can count on our dentists to provide effective treatment. Visit our fees page to view starting prices for extractions.
