Our dentist will do his or her best to save your tooth. However, if the tooth is too far gone, he or she will have to extract it. Fortunately, getting a tooth pulled is a fast, painless procedure that is over in just a few minutes.
Your tooth extraction cost depends on if the dentist can pull the tooth or if you will need a surgical extraction. The tooth’s location and your dental insurance coverage will also influence your cost. Before the extraction, your dentist will go over the estimated cost with you.
Our dentists will refer patients to a local oral surgeon for an extraction if the tooth hasn’t emerged from the gum or the tooth has broken at the gum line. In dental extractions, your dentist will grab hold of a tooth and pull it out, where an oral surgeon cuts your gum to reach the tooth.
In cases where you have severe decay or an infection that is threatening to spread to other teeth and a root canal isn’t feasible, a dentist will have to pull your tooth. Sometimes, broken teeth and teeth cracked to the root have to come out as well. Call our office meet our dentist and see if he or she can save the tooth.
Contact us to arrange an appointment with our dentist. He or she would need to evaluate your tooth before deciding on the best course of action. It may be possible to save your natural tooth with a root canal procedure.
If a baby tooth won’t fall out on its own and it is blocking the adult tooth, our dentist will extract it. If your child needs a tooth extraction, call our office to schedule an appointment with our gentle dentist.
When you have advanced stage gum disease, the ligaments that hold your teeth in your gums can barely hold the tooth. If you are in pain and you have one or more loose teeth, contact our office for a tooth extraction, which will stop the pain.
Wisdom teeth are the four final teeth to erupt in early adulthood. We don’t need wisdom teeth anymore; in fact, the jaw is often too small for them now. If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain because they are growing in crooked, our dentist will extract them. If they have not emerged from your gums, an oral surgeon will have to perform the procedure.
It’s common to need teeth extractions before getting braces since your teeth will need room to straighten out.
Follow your dentist’s instructions so a blood clot forms at the extraction site and you do not disturb the clot. Your aftercare instructions will include what to do about any pain or swelling.
You’ll need to rest for the first 24 hours. The extraction site should heal in a week if you had a dental extraction. If you had a molar extracted or a surgical extraction, the tooth extraction healing period may take longer.
