Who Is a Candidate for Teeth Extractions?
Your dentist will always aim to fix a tooth that is damaged due to decay or injury. Sometimes, however, the repair isn't possible due to the extent of the damage and complete extraction is necessary. Other reasons for tooth extraction include impacted wisdom teeth and crowded teeth.
If you believe that you are a candidate for tooth extraction, book an appointment with our experienced team today. We will talk to you about the dental problems that you are having and help you to decide if removal is the right treatment for you.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Tooth extraction is a minor surgical procedure, and there will be some followup care required. Your dentist will thoroughly discuss after-care with you during your appointment. Initial healing can take up to two weeks, with swelling lasting up to one week normally.
Immediately after the procedure, your dentist will ask you to bite on a piece of gauze for between 20 and 30 minutes. The pressure from this helps to clot the blood, and it is important not to disturb the blood clot. It is normal for the extraction site to bleed very slightly over the next day. After 24 hours, mouth rinse with warm salt water will help to keep the area clean. For swelling, apply an ice pack to the jaw for 20 minutes at a time.
Are Tooth Extractions Painful?
You should expect to feel pressure as your tooth is removed but no pain. If you do feel any pain please alert your dentist immediately. Afterward, you will feel some discomfort, which is usually mild. Your dentist will recommend painkillers to you to keep you comfortable once the anesthetic wears off.
In addition to local anesthesia, we also offer oral sedation and laughing gas to our patients that require extra relief to help keep them relaxed during dental procedures. Phone us to discuss whether these options are appropriate for you.
How Much Do Tooth Extractions Cost?
The cost of your extraction will depend on your overall oral health and how many teeth you need to have extracted. Our team strives to offer top-notch care at prices that families in our community can afford. We also have easy finance options available to make it easier for you to receive the dental care you need when you need it. Contact us today to find out more about our payment options.
