Tooth Extractions

Crowns & Bridges

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure in which a dentist or oral surgeon removes a tooth from the socket in the jawbone. Tooth extraction may be recommended if a tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair, causing pain or infection, or if it is causing crowding or other issues with the alignment of the teeth.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth. The dentist or oral surgeon will then use specialized tools to gently loosen the tooth from the socket, and remove it. In some cases, the tooth may need to be sectioned or broken into smaller pieces for easier removal.

After the extraction, the patient will be given instructions on how to care for the area to promote healing and prevent infection. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.

In some cases, the dentist or oral surgeon may recommend a dental implant or bridge to replace the missing tooth. This can help to restore function and appearance to the mouth, as well as prevent other dental issues that can arise from missing teeth.

Tooth extractions are a common dental procedure and are generally safe and effective when performed by a trained and experienced dentist or oral surgeon. However, like any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications associated with tooth extractions, including infection, bleeding, and damage to surrounding teeth or tissue. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of tooth extraction with your dentist or oral surgeon before undergoing the procedure.

The cost of an extraction can vary depending on what type of extraction it is, surgical or non-surgical, and where you're located. They can range from $100-$600 per tooth. Dental insurance may cover some of the procedures involved, depending on the specific treatments needed, if it's deemed medically necessary or cosmetic, and the coverage provided by the insurance plan. However, it's important to note that cosmetic dentistry procedures are often not covered by dental insurance since they are considered elective and not medically necessary. In such cases, patients may need to pay for these procedures out of pocket. It's recommended that patients review their dental insurance policy or speak with their insurance provider to determine what is covered and what is not. Patients may also want to discuss their options for financing with us, such as third-party financing options, to help cover the cost of extractions.
