Reasons for Tooth Extractions
There are a variety of reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted:
Severe tooth decay
When a tooth is extensively decayed or damaged, it may not be possible to save with a filling or crown.
Advanced gum disease
If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to the loss of supporting bone and tissue around the teeth, making extraction necessary.
Impacted wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often do not have enough room to emerge and can become impacted, causing pain, infection, and other complications.
Sometimes teeth need to be removed to create more space for the remaining teeth to align properly.
New to neighbor dental? Get a dental exam for $99
New patients can get their first visit for only $99, which includes:
- Comprehensive exam to see what’s going on in your mouth
- X-rays, including a complete bite series if necessary
- If an extraction is recommended, we’ll also provide a treatment plan for replacing the tooth and restoring your smile
What should I expect from the extraction process?
During the extraction procedure, we’ll numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel any pain. Once the tooth is removed, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site to promote healing and prevent complications.
What happens after an extraction?
Following a tooth extraction, it’s normal to experience some mild discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. We’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to manage these symptoms and promote healing. Additionally, we’ll work with you to create a plan for restoring the strength, health, and beauty of your smile. If necessary, we may recommend a dental implant to take the place of the missing tooth and restore function and health.
Are tooth extractions covered by insurance?
It depends on the dental insurance plan you have. Some PPO dental insurance does cover the cost of extractions. Our team is happy to review your benefits package and help you understand the estimated cost.
