Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Extractions
A dentist may recommend tooth extraction for a variety of reasons. It may be frightening to think about having one of your teeth extracted, let alone going through the tooth extraction process. However, tooth extraction may be necessary in some cases in order to maintain a healthy smile and good oral health. The following are some signs that you need a tooth extraction.
- Severe toothache
- Tooth decay
- Pain in your jaw or face
- Gum disease
- Swelling of the gums around damaged teeth
- Bite problems
In most cases, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb your mouth so that you don’t feel any pain when your tooth is extracted. The dentist will use a special tool to loosen the tooth from the gum. When the tooth has become loose, forceps are used to get it out of your mouth.
General anesthesia may be used if your tooth extraction is more complicated. You may also be sent to an oral surgeon depending on the condition of your teeth.
The amount of time it takes to recover differs for every patient. However, it usually takes a few days after the procedure. The following practices will help you relieve pain, prevent infection, and heal faster.
- Have adequate rest after the procedure.
- Take your pain medication as prescribed by your dentist.
- You can stop the bleeding by gently biting down on a gauze pad.
- Apply an ice pack to the cheeks near the extraction site.
- Choose healthy soft foods.
- Avoid hard and chewy foods.
- Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing your teeth gently and flossing on a daily basis.
- After 12 hours, you may be allowed to gently rinse your mouth. Rinse your mouth using 1 teaspoon of salt in a glass of water four times per day.
Dental professionals may recommend root canal therapy if the damaged tooth can be saved by removing infected tissues inside.
The condition of your teeth will determine your treatment options. Consult with our dentist about any alternative tooth extraction options to know what’s best for you. Our dental team will discuss all the benefits and possible risks of each treatment option.
The price will depend on which tooth needs to be removed, the type of extraction, how many teeth need to be removed at a time, and the location of your dentist’s clinic.
The price range of tooth extraction is usually between $75 to $200 for each tooth. However, if you need dental surgery to remove your teeth, it can be more expensive. Generally, each tooth will cost between $250 and $750 for complicated surgeries.
Additionally, each wisdom tooth extraction costs between $150 and $200, depending on the complexity of the procedure.
