How Do I Know If I Need a Tooth Extraction?
You may need a tooth extraction if you have severe tooth decay, gum disease, or are vulnerable to infection. Impacted wisdom teeth may also need to be extracted.
We prefer to save a tooth when possible instead of extracting it. Procedures and dental solutions such as dental fillings, root canals, and crowns can help stop the effects of tooth decay and save the natural tooth so that extraction is not necessary. But sometimes, a tooth is too far gone to save.
The best way to determine if an extraction is necessary is to come in for an appointment. We’ll thoroughly evaluate your dental situation to determine if a tooth extraction is the best option.
How to Prepare for a Tooth Extraction
If you’re scheduled for tooth extraction, you can do a few things to prepare. First, schedule a ride home from the dental office. You’ll be given local anesthesia to numb the area, but you won’t be able to drive yourself home.
Second, in some cases, we will request that you avoid eating or drinking anything for at least two hours before your tooth extraction. This includes water. The anesthesia can make you feel nauseous, so it’s best to have an empty stomach.
Third, let us know if you’re taking any medications. Medications include over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Some medications can interact with the anesthesia and cause complications.
What Happens During a Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extractions are a standard dental procedure that we can perform comfortably and effectively. We will start by numbing the area around your tooth with local anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of the procedure, we may perform the extraction while you are under general anesthesia. Once you’re comfortable, we will use specialized tools to remove the tooth and help your teeth, gums, and mouth begin the restoration process.
What Happens After a Tooth Extraction
After tooth extraction, you will likely have some soreness and swelling. We will give you some tips on how to manage these symptoms. It’s vital to keep us posted if you’re experiencing excessive discomfort or something doesn’t seem right after the extraction. We want to ensure you have a smooth and speedy recovery and will help you remain comfortable from start to finish.
Once you have recovered from the extraction, we can start treatments for tooth replacement if necessary. We have various helpful restorative dental solutions such as implants and bridges to bring back your bite functionality and return your smile to its former glory.
How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost?
Tooth extraction costs may vary depending on your individual dental needs and the procedure complexity. We will provide you with an estimate of the tooth extraction cost during your consultation.
We accept most dental insurance plans and offer financing options to make paying for your procedure as easy as possible.
