While no one relishes the idea of having a tooth extracted, there are situations where an extraction may be the only way to alleviate pain or preserve the remaining teeth. Our dentists offer quick, affordable extractions using a gentle touch.
The extent of your dental insurance coverage, the type of extraction required, and the location of the tooth are just a few of the factors that determine the cost of an extraction. The dentist will provide you with an outline of the anticipated cost following your consultation. Our staff will also work with your insurer to make the expense as manageable as possible.
Our dentists typically perform extractions where there is enough of the tooth exposed that it can be grasped with forceps. If the tooth is deeply embedded, you may be referred to a qualified oral surgeon.
Extracting a tooth not only affects the aesthetics of your smile, but it also affects the alignment and structural integrity of the remaining teeth. As a result, our dentists generally recommend extraction when the tooth is so diseased or damaged that it cannot be saved using a filling, root canal, or other technique.
If the damage has not progressed beyond the middle of the tooth, it may be possible to save the tooth using a root canal. If a root canal is not feasible, the dentist may recommend extracting the damaged tooth and replacing it with an implant or bridge to help maintain the alignment of the remaining teeth.
Our experienced dentists perform procedures, including extractions, to treat a wide range of pediatric dental issues. If your child has an infected tooth, a cavity that is too large to fill, or teeth that are overcrowded, we can help. Call today to arrange a consultation.
Once periodontal disease has progressed to the point that a tooth is loose, infected, or causing significant pain, an extraction is often the best option for alleviating the pain and preserving the health of the remaining teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that typically emerge in our late teens or early adulthood. Because the jaw is often not large enough to accommodate these teeth, they can become impacted or emerge at an angle that causes problems with the surrounding teeth. When this occurs, the tooth must be removed.
When there are too many adult teeth for the size of the jaw, the teeth can become crooked and require orthodontic correction. One or more teeth may need to be extracted to allow the braces to shift the teeth into the correct position.
Following the extraction procedure, your dentist will provide you with instructions that you will need to follow to ensure that a blood clot forms at the extraction site and to minimize discomfort.
You should be able to return to most activities within 24 hours. Most simple extractions heal within a week. Complex surgical extractions may take a little longer.
