Is Tooth Extraction Necessary ?

Numerous factors might necessitate a tooth extraction, which may include (but are not restricted to):

  • Extracting baby teeth that face difficulties in naturally falling out.
  • Extracting teeth as part of orthodontic procedures.
  • Extracting teeth to alleviate pain or address infections.
  • Extracting teeth that have sustained damage or breakage.

The agony of a toothache can be overwhelming, leading some to consider tooth extraction as the only option. We genuinely understand your distress and are dedicated to offering rapid relief while exploring potential solutions that can also preserve your tooth. Please inform us if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Intense tooth pain.
  • Pain that worsens when you apply pressure or chew.
  • Jaw pain or difficulty in jaw movement.
  • Swelling in the gums around the affected tooth or teeth.
  • Indicators of gum disease like changes in color, bleeding, or unpleasant mouth odor.

The Treatment Process

There are numerous factors that can lead to the removal of a tooth, such as the extraction of baby teeth that don’t exfoliate properly, tooth removal as part of orthodontic treatment, and tooth extraction to address pain or infection.

Looking For Solutions

Although you may believe that tooth extraction is your only option for relief or an inevitable course of action, there might be alternative approaches to swiftly provide relief while also safeguarding your tooth. Our primary aim is to maintain your well-being, alleviate any discomfort, and preserve your tooth. Prior to any tooth removal, we will conduct a thorough examination and engage in a discussion with you regarding the available alternatives.

The Extraction Process

The choice to use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth extraction area is made in accordance with the dentist’s and patient’s preferences. Sedation can also be considered if necessary. Our tooth extraction technique is minimally invasive, prioritizing gentle removal to enhance your comfort and promote a rapid recovery.

Recovery

After the treatment, you’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions, encompassing mouth care during the healing process, expectations for recovery, and guidance on addressing any complications should they arise. We’re here to assist you further and can schedule a follow-up appointment to address any additional concerns you may have.

Cost of a dental extraction in Long Valley

The cost of tooth extraction may vary depending on several factors. With a typical insurance plan, a tooth removal commonly costs about $175 — $250+ out of pocket. We would be happy to provide you with a quote in advance to submit to your insurance provider to find out what your out-of-pocket costs would be. Without insurance, you can expect to pay approximately $300 to $600+ per tooth.

No dental practice can give you an accurate quote over the phone because your treatment plan must be tailored to your specific needs and can only be determined after an oral exam. There are two broad categories that dental extractions fall under which may give you a better idea of what your extraction may cost and why:

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. A simple extraction of an accessible tooth without complication would merit a lower cost estimate.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

A surgical extraction is a form of dental surgery, typically performed by an oral surgeon at a dental surgery center. This is a more complex procedure than a simple tooth extraction 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. A surgical tooth extraction, requiring a great amount of consideration, delicate care, and expertise will come at a greater cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth extraction is often seen as a customary practice, yet in truth, the removal of wisdom teeth is only necessary if they become impacted or cause interference with your jaw and other teeth.

Dentistry has become increasingly compassionate, placing great importance on your comfort. We employ state-of-the-art tools and techniques to minimize discomfort, enhance efficiency, ensure precision, and promote a speedy healing process. Following your treatment, we will give you aftercare instructions for your comfort and to facilitate rapid healing.

Roughly an hour after your procedure, feel free to remove the gauze sponges from your mouth and have a meal. It’s important to opt for soft foods during the initial 24 hours and steer clear of hot foods and sipping through straws for a few hours.

What’s the recommended post-dental extraction routine?
Your specific aftercare instructions will be tailored to your needs during your appointment. Nevertheless, here are some general measures to facilitate a smooth recovery and reduce the risk of complications:

In the initial 24 hours following tooth extraction, avoid activities like spitting, mouth rinsing, nose blowing, straw use, and smoking. Refrain from touching the extraction site with your finger or tongue. Steer clear of hot foods and beverages. Aspirin should not be taken, as it interferes with blood clotting. Abstain from engaging in physical activities and exercise.

It is recommended that you arrange for about three to four days of rest or lighter tasks following the extraction of your wisdom teeth. This rest period is pivotal in reducing the risk of complications and promoting a smooth healing process. Although full recovery typically takes approximately two weeks, you should experience minimal discomfort during this timeframe.

Barring any unforeseen complications, expect a typical tooth extraction to take around 45 minutes or less.

Cazes Family Dentistry is the most wonderful place for your teeth!! :-) I have some anxiety surrounding dental work, and they are just so wonderful. Courtney is the best dental hygienist- she is kind and calm; she will slow down if anything becomes too much, and she is so understanding and patient. She’s also really nice to chat to beforehand. Dr. Emma- what can I say about my favorite dentist? Dr. Emma got me over my initial fear when I brought my then 5 year old to her. She was so good with my daughter that when I found out she took adults I felt comfortable confessing that it had been YEARS since I had gone to the dentist. We worked through my anxiety and her positive attitude, kindness, and compassion has kept me coming back consistently over the last two years. I hope you consider Cazes for all your dental needs!
