Frequently Asked Questions about
The following are some reasons why you may want to consider tooth extractions:
- A tooth so damaged from decay that it can’t be restored
- Impacted teeth causing harm or overcrowded teeth
- Broken teeth caused by trauma from an accident
- Toothache that can’t be relieved through other treatments
Our dentists will numb the area around the tooth before starting the extraction. You may feel some pressure during the procedure, but you shouldn’t feel any pain.
After the numbing agent wears off, you may feel pain or discomfort. This is normal and can be relieved with over-the-counter medication that your dentists will prescribe.
Tooth extraction is a relatively simple procedure involving the following steps:
- First, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. It will help to ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure.
- Next, your dentist will use a tool to loosen the tooth from the gums and socket. Once loose, it will be taken out of the mouth using forceps.
- Sometimes, making small cuts in the gum tissue may be necessary to remove the tooth. However, these cuts are usually conservative.
- The dentist will place a cotton or gauze pad over the extraction site and ask you to bite down on it to control and stop the bleeding.
- After the procedure, you will be given instructions on how to care for the area and be scheduled for a follow-up dental appointment.
Tooth extraction is generally safe. However, as with any dental procedure, there will be risks involved. These include:
- Prolonged bleeding
- Infection, including fever and chills
- Discomfort and pain
- Swelling and redness at the extraction site
If you experience any serious symptoms, be sure to contact your dentist right away.
Most health insurance funds will cover tooth extractions or a portion of their cost. However, this will depend on your policy. It’s always best to check with your private health insurance provider to determine how much they will cover.
Tooth extractions cost around $200 – $400 on average. However, your extraction cost may be higher, depending on the complications. For a more accurate cost, you can schedule a visit with a qualified dentist.
