If you’ve never had a tooth pulled, hearing that you need a tooth extraction can be frightening. Years ago, extractions were messy and painful. However, today’s extractions are quick and painless, so in the hands of a good dentist you have nothing to worry about.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction in Atlanta Cost?

You will have to come in for an examination so our dentist can determine if you need a dental extraction or a surgical extraction. If our dentist can perform the extraction, your tooth extraction cost will depend on how difficult the tooth will be to remove. If you have dental insurance, your plan may cover extractions.

What Are Oral Surgery Extractions?

Dentists perform dental extractions when the tooth is visible in the mouth. If you need a surgical extraction, an oral surgeon will make an incision to reach the broken or impacted tooth in your gum and remove it. Surgical extractions are usually more expensive.

When Are Dental Extractions Unavoidable?

Sometimes, severely decayed or broken teeth cannot be saved with a root canal procedure. Our dentist will try his or her best to save your tooth, but if an extraction is inevitable, our dentist can perform the procedure.

Can I Have a Dentist Pull My Severely Decayed Tooth?

Getting a tooth pulled because of decay that has reached the pulp is a last resort. If a root canal isn’t possible, our dentist will pull the tooth to stop your pain.

Why Does a Dentist Want to Pull My Young Child’s Tooth?

A dentist may want to pull your child’s baby tooth early if there is a severe infection, trauma, or decay. Our gentle dentist excels at putting anxious children at ease. Call us today if your child has a toothache in one of his or her baby teeth. We will schedule a time for you to meet with our dentist.

Will a Dentist Pull My Loose Tooth If I Have Periodontal Disease?

With severe gum infections, such as periodontal disease, the support structure of a tooth pulls back, causing the tooth to become loose. If you have one or more loose teeth caused by advanced gum disease, contact our office for an appointment with our dentist. He or she can perform a tooth extraction and stop your pain.

Can a Dentist Do Wisdom Teeth Extractions?

Dentists can extract wisdom teeth that are visible in the mouth. If the teeth are impacted (not emerged from the gum), our dentist will refer you to an oral surgeon for surgical extractions.

What Happens If My Teeth Are Too Crowded in My Mouth?

When you have too many teeth, they grow in crooked. When you get braces, you will need the extra teeth removed so your teeth have room to align themselves properly. Our dentists are skilled at performing extraction quickly.

What Are the Typical Tooth Removal Aftercare Instructions?

Once you have a tooth extraction, you need to be very careful during the first 24 hours and avoid any activity that will dislodge the clot forming at the extraction site. Our dentist will provide you with a list of things to avoid, such as drinking through a straw, engaging in any strenuous activity for a day or two, and smoking.

How Long Does Tooth Extraction Healing Take?

The site should heal in about seven days after having a tooth pulled. Your dentist will provide you with instruction to help the healing process, such as how to keep the site clean. Surgical extraction sites take longer to heal.
