Our Dental Extractions Can Save Your Smile

A tooth removal sounds like an uncomfortable experience, but when you’re in our hands, there’s nothing to fear. We start out with an examination to ensure an extraction is absolutely necessary. For example, if you have severe gum infection, we can often save threatened teeth with periodontic treatments.

If we determine an extraction is needed to improve your oral health or you are preparing your mouth for implants or another procedure, you can trust our experienced team for your treatment. We’ll make it easy by:

  • Using advanced technology like 3-D imaging to plan your procedure
  • Numbing the area before we begin so you won’t feel anything at all
  • Helping you relax with sedation, if desired, to give you a sense of calm
  • Using PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) following your extraction to encourage  healing and decrease discomfort

You’ll be surprised how easy this process is for you! Following the procedure, we’ll give you aftercare instructions for protecting the extraction site. Once you have fully healed, we can work with you on options to replace teeth such as implants, or create a treatment plan for reconstructing your smile.

Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

How much does a tooth removal cost?

It is not easy to quote a price for a tooth extraction without first seeing the tooth in question. Various factors can come into play that would change the total cost of your tooth removal. If you suspect you need a tooth removed, we recommend you schedule an exam so that we can determine the exact procedure needed and give you an accurate price.

Does tooth removal hurt?

We numb your mouth with local anesthesia to keep your extraction procedure as pain-free as possible. In addition, you may also want to receive dental sedation. You will likely experience some mild discomfort and swelling following your extraction. If needed, we can prescribe medication. However, in most cases, applying ice and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever is all that’s needed.

What is dry socket after a tooth removal?

Dry socket occurs when the blood clot that formed where your tooth was removed is dislodged or dissolves. The nerves and bone are then left exposed to food and air, creating intense pain. If you rinse and spit often after your extraction, use a straw, or eat hard foods, you increase your chances of experiencing dry socket.
