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 wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment or when necessary, for restoration of overall health.
THE PAINFUL TRUTH
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.” Dr. Troy Hoover understands that “dental phobia” is common and works with all patients to alleviate that fear. With more than twenty-five years of experience he has refined techniques to provide treatment that is as painless as possible.
PARTIAL / FULL DENTURES
Dr. Troy A. Hoover performs extractions and offers both partial and full dentures to rebuild a great smile.
A removable partial denture (RPD) is a denture for a patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge or due to financial limitations. The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture is because patients can remove and reinsert them when required without professional help.
