While our team will always work to save your teeth, there are occasions when a dental extraction is the best option for your oral health. We understand that the thought of having to undergo surgery in order to have a tooth extracted can be scary. However, a tooth extraction is usually a quick and painless procedure completed on a routine basis by our dentists.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost?

The amount you will pay for a dental extraction surgery will vary depending on whether or not it is a simple extraction or a surgical tooth extraction. If your tooth will be difficult to remove, your extraction procedure will probably be more expensive. If you have dental insurance, your provider may offer some form of coverage that will cover part of the cost of your dental extraction.

What Is Oral Surgery Extraction?

Surgical extractions are performed by an oral surgeon in instances where a patient has a tooth that hasn’t broken through the gums or when only a tiny section of the tooth is visible. If there is not enough of the tooth visible for your dentist to pull out with forceps, you will be referred to an oral surgeon.

When Is It Necessary to Have a Tooth Pulled?

Tooth removal is often necessary in patients who have severe decay, trauma or gum disease. If your tooth needs to be extracted due to severe tooth decay (a large cavity), the extraction will make your mouth feel much better. Our dentists always prefer to try saving the teeth. However, if your tooth is too damaged due to the above issues, we may not have a choice but to do a dental extraction.

Can My Dentist Extract My Teeth?

If you have one or more teeth that are cracked, severely decayed, or broken, our dentist will examine your mouth to determine whether or not the damage has reached the middle of the tooth. Depending on the result of your examination, the dentist will then decide if a root canal is something that can be done to save the tooth. In cases where a root canal can’t be done, your dentist will recommend a tooth extraction. This will rid you of any pain you have been feeling due to your tooth or teeth. Once your extraction has been completed, your dentist will let you know why replacing the tooth is an important step in keeping the rest of your teeth from moving around in your mouth.

Why Are Baby Teeth Sometimes Extracted?

There are occasions when baby teeth need to be extracted. This happens when your child’s baby tooth is infected, has a large cavity that can’t be filled, or is blocking an adult tooth from coming in. Our gentle dentists are experienced when it comes to working with children. Contact us today to make an appointment for your child.

Will My Teeth Need to Be Extracted Due to My Advanced Gum Disease?

Patients with severe periodontal disease often experience loose teeth. This happens because the gum disease attacks the ligaments that hold the teeth within the mouth. Advanced stage gum disease can be incredibly painful. Having a dental extraction performed will help to relieve you of pain and set your oral health back on track.

Can You Tell Me About Wisdom Teeth Extraction?

Wisdom teeth extractions are routine procedures that are done in cases where the wisdom teeth don’t have enough room to come through. The wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that don’t break through until you are in your teens or early adult years. Most people do not have enough room in their mouth for their wisdom teeth. When this occurs, the teeth can become impacted. This can lead to severe pain and infection. It can also lead to your jawbone or other teeth becoming damaged. In some cases, our dentist will be able to remove the teeth at our office. If your wisdom teeth are still trapped underneath your gums, you will probably be referred to an oral surgeon.

What Happens When My Teeth Are Too Crowded?

Some patients do not have enough room in their mouths for all of their adult teeth. When this happens, the teeth grow in crooked. Braces are often recommended for people with crooked teeth. However, you may need to have one or more teeth taken out in order to make room for your teeth to straighten out.

What Will I Need to Do After My Extraction?

After you have had your tooth pulled, the dentist will give you a set of instructions that will detail what you cannot do. You should be sure to follow these instructions to make sure that a blood clot will form where the tooth was pulled. This will aid in your mouth healing properly. Our dentist will also give you information about how to keep any pain or swelling from becoming severe.

Will My Extraction Heal Quickly?

In most instances, you will be able to get back to your normal life shortly after your dental extraction has taken place. You will be asked to restrict your activities for the first 24 hours after your surgery. If you follow your dentist’s instructions, your tooth extraction healing should be finished in a week. Extractions performed on the molars take slightly longer to heal.
