Cause for a Tooth Extraction

Each person’s smile is uniquely their own, and there are several reasons for an extraction. Some common causes include:

  • Severe decay
  • Overcrowding
  • Preparation for dentures or implants
  • Periodontal disease

Tooth Extraction Procedure

Before treatment, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. If you’re undergoing a simple extraction, the tooth will be loosened and toggled back and forth until it is removed from the jawbone. During a surgical extraction, the tooth may need to be removed in pieces or retrieved from beneath the gums if it has not erupted yet. Once the removal is completed, a blood clot will form, and we will ask you to keep gauze in place until bleeding has subsided. During your healing process, avoid drinking through a straw, smoking, or rinsing vigorously to prevent knocking the blood clot loose. This is called a dry socket and can be extremely painful.

Tooth Extraction Cost

The cost of an extraction varies depending on the type of extraction you need performed. During your first visit, we will give you an exact cost breakdown and ensure you’re comfortable with any out-of-pocket costs. If you’re concerned about paying for treatment, our office offers in-house payment plans and accepts CareCredit® patient financing.
