Is a damaged or infected tooth causing you extreme pain, and preventing you from enjoying your day-to-day life? A tooth extraction is an affordable and sometimes vital step towards restoring your health, comfort, and confidence.

At Care Dental Center, we know that having a tooth removed can cause patients anxiety and stress. That is why we ensure that our practice is a relaxing place for all our patients. We also provide several sedation options that are all effective and safe. You can trust us to remove your problem tooth with care in as little as one office visit.

What is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is when we carefully remove a decayed, damaged, or infected tooth fully from its socket. Extraction is sometimes necessary to stop the spread of an infection and to relieve you of your pain. A tooth extraction may also need to be done to perform various cosmetic treatments, such as the placement of dentures or dental implants.

What Is Involved in Extracting a Tooth?

You will first arrive at our welcoming office for an initial consultation, which will involve x-rays and an exam from our skilled Dr. Barkhordar. Dr. Barkhordar will design a customized and expert extraction plan to ensure your tooth is removed quickly and painlessly. You will also choose your desired sedation option, which our qualified staff will administer and monitor throughout the procedure.

Once the tooth has been removed, self-dissolving stitches will be utilized to seal the site from bacteria and debris. We will also place gauze to stop residual bleeding, and you can return home with our detailed removal site care instructions.

When is a Tooth Extraction Recommended?

A dentist will prioritize saving natural teeth as much as possible, but sometimes restorative dental treatments like crowns and fillings cannot help. When teeth are irreparably damaged, removing them may be the only option. A tooth extraction may be recommended when a patient has:

  • An impacted or fractured tooth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Extensive tooth decay and cavities
  • Advanced gum disease

What Can You Expect During Recovery from a Tooth Extraction?

Normally, patients recover from a tooth extraction procedure within a few days. To ensure a smooth recovery, implement the following steps:

  • Reduce swelling directly after the procedure by applying an ice pack to your cheek in 10-minute intervals
  • Bite down on the gauze your dentist put over the infected area. This will encourage clot formation and reduce bleeding. Leave the gauze for up to four hours or until it is soaked
  • Take all medication as directed
  • For the first 24 hours, do nothing more than rest and relax. Avoid jumping into your standard routine for a day, as rest encourages the body to heal.
  • Avoid straws for a full day
  • Prop your head up with a pillow when lying down
  • Eat soft foods like pudding and mashed potatoes the day after your procedure

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost?

The price of a tooth extraction varies due to your unique needs. The complexity of your dental procedure will also play a part in how your final cost.

Fortunately, insurance companies often help cover the cost of tooth extractions. If you do not have dental insurance, Care Dental Center offers patients flexible financing options for your convenience.
