Knoxville and Maryville, TN

Saving your teeth is always our primary goal at Crestview Dental Care. However, there are times when nothing can be done to save a tooth for the long-term. In that case, we offer tooth extraction services to remove an unhealthy tooth that is beyond repair.

Should I have my bad tooth extracted?

At Crestview Dental Care, our primary goal is to help you maintain a healthy mouth. When you have a problem tooth, we recommend treatment options to help restore your tooth, if possible. However, if your tooth is beyond repair, we may need to extract it. A consultation is the best method of determining if a tooth extraction is necessary.

What should I expect after a tooth extraction?

Following a tooth extraction procedure, you may experience some tenderness and mild discomfort around the site where the tooth was removed, and should plan on resting for the remainder of the day. After that, you should be able to return to your regular activities.

Oral hygiene is necessary following an extraction. Gentle rinsing after you eat will help prevent food particles from becoming lodged inside the extraction site. Our caring staff will advise you on how to care for your mouth, following the extraction procedure.

Tooth replacement options

At Crestview Dental Care, we offer a variety of tooth replacement options to help restore your bite and chewing abilities. We offer dental implants, partials, custom fit dentures, and dental bridges. To determine which option is best for you, discuss tooth replacement with the dentist during your visit.
