Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

There are many reasons a tooth extraction may be required, including (but not limited to):

  • The extraction of baby teeth that have trouble exfoliating on their own.
  • The extraction of teeth for orthodontic treatment.
  • The extraction of teeth due to pain or infection.
  • The extraction of a broken tooth.

However, tooth extraction may not be your only option. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, we may still be able to provide you with quick relief while saving your tooth in the process. But early detection is crucial.

    Let us know if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
  • Severe tooth pain.
  • Pain that worsens with pressure or chewing.
  • Jaw pain or stiffness.
  • Swollen gums around the tooth or teeth.
  • Signs of gum disease such as discolouration, bleeding or a bad odour.

The treatment plan

A tooth extraction procedure is performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon and usually requires only one office visit. Here is how we go about the process, from determining if tooth removal is the right decision for you, to tooth extraction, to aftercare:

Looking for Solutions

Before our dentists pull any teeth, they will carefully examine your symptoms and discuss your options to determine the best course of action for you and the health of your teeth.

The Removal Process

Based on the preference of the dentist and the patient, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the areas where the tooth will be extracted. Sedation may also be available if it’s required. Our oral surgeons use a minimally invasive technique to remove teeth as gently as possible. Your comfort and quick recovery are our top priority.

Feeling Better

You will be given aftercare instructions, including:

  • How to care for your mouth as it heals.
  • What to expect.
  • What to do if you experience complications.

We would be happy to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any additional concerns you may have.

Cost of a Dental Extraction

The cost of dental extractions can vary widely. For those with average insurance, a dental extraction could cost an average of $100 — $200 out of pocket, but without insurance you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 and $400.

When considering the cost of a dental extraction and comparing quotes from different dental practices the location and complexity of the procedure can have an important impact on cost.

Simple Tooth Extraction

A simple extraction is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth. These can be performed by a general dentist, using local anesthesia.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

A surgical extraction is more complex and involves the removal of a tooth that cannot easily be seen or reached, either because it has not fully erupted or it has broken off at the gum line.

No dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone as the procedure is complex and depends on many factors. Every case is different so it’s important to speak with a dentist to evaluate your unique situation and provide you with different treatment options to consider.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people believe wisdom teeth removal is a rite of passage. In reality, wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they become impacted or otherwise interfere with your jaw and teeth.
Thanks to modern dental techniques and equipment, tooth extractions are virtually painless. Many patients are surprised by how quick and easy the procedure actually is! Of course, some discomfort is to be expected, but we will provide you with aftercare instructions to help keep you as comfortable as possible during the quick healing process.
About an hour after your procedure, you may remove the gauze sponges that have been placed in your mouth and have something to eat. Be sure to eat only soft foods for the first 24 hours. Be sure to avoid hot foods and drinking from straws for several hours.
We will provide you with aftercare instructions specific to your needs at your appointment. Here are some general things you can do after a tooth extraction or dental surgery more generally to minimize the risk of complications and encourage a speedy recovery:
  • Avoid spitting, mouth rinsing, blowing your nose, using a straw, and smoking in the first 24 hours after tooth extraction.
  • Don’t touch the extraction site with your finger or tongue.
  • Avoid hot foods and drinks.
  • Don’t take aspirin because it inhibits blood clotting.
  • Avoid physical activities and exercise.
For simple tooth removal, the recovery time is usually around 7 to 10 days. However, for more complex cases, such as surgical tooth extraction, or wisdom tooth removal, expect a recovery period of around 2 weeks. No matter the complexity of the procedure, you should feel very little discomfort during recovery.
Barring any unforeseen complications, expect a typical tooth extraction to take around 45 minutes or less.
