Are you having trouble with a toothache that won’t go away? Have you considered the possibility of needing to have your tooth extracted? People of all ages have dental problems.

Pulling a Tooth Could Save Your Smile

Tooth extractions can also help protect other dental structures, such as preventing more dental decay in carrying out a dental extraction. If you experience any pain, swelling, or soreness after dental extraction, make sure to contact your dentist as soon as possible to ensure they can take any necessary steps to reduce your discomfort.

Procedure

It’s normal to feel nervous going into this kind of procedure but know that modern dental technologies can ensure a comfortable experience. Typically, our dentists are conservative about tooth extractions and only suggest them as a last resort.

A dental extraction may be necessary for various reasons. For example, when an infection cannot be treated, there’s not enough room in the mouth for overcrowding, or if braces are due to be applied, a dental extraction might be in order.

Tooth extractions are dental procedures designed to remove teeth that are severely damaged, decayed, or impacted. The removal process is initiated by numbing the area and firmly pulling or rocking the tooth to ease it from its socket.

1. How much does a tooth extraction cost?

The price one pays for a tooth extraction depends on the type of dental extraction, the anesthesia necessary, and the tooth’s condition. Typically, a simple tooth extraction costs between $75 and $250 for a simple extraction, and surgical extractions can go up to $300 or more. Still, it’s wise to schedule a consultation with a dentist in person for an exact tooth extraction cost. 

2. Should I be worried about tooth extraction infection?

After any procedure, it’s normal to worry about infection. Most tooth extraction infections present within a few days after the procedure. Still, some infections can occur as late as four weeks after the procedure. Throughout the tooth extraction healing process, please pay close attention to your mouth and overall health and keep an eye out for adverse signs, such as bleeding, swelling, and pain that do not go away.
