Why A Tooth Extraction?
When it comes to getting an extraction, there are several reasons to get one ranging from cosmetic dentistry to protecting the health of your mouth. Here are some reasons why you should get a tooth removed:
- Traumatic accident: causing loose or broken teeth
- Overcrowding: this is caused when your teeth become too big causing your teeth to push against each other
- Impaction: a tooth that does not grow into its rightful place
- Periodontal disease (or infection): an infection can affect surrounding areas like the gum and other teeth
- Tooth Decay: this can lead to an infection that can spread to surrounding areas
The Most Common Dental Extraction
The most common teeth removed are the “wisdom teeth”. These are your third molars, which are the back molar on each arch that come in around age sixteen to twenty-two.
Why Wisdom teeth removal?
In most cases, they either start crowding the other teeth, or they come in crooked and cause irritation in the process. If they grow in sideways and don’t show above the gums, they are considered impacted. Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. In certain cases, after evaluation with either a panoramic x-ray or a 3D cone beam scan, we may decide that they aren’t causing any issues and can stay in there indefinitely.
Most people have smaller jaws that will fit all 32 teeth. As a result, these back-molar teeth come in crooked or rotated and are often difficult to clean, much less treat if they get a cavity. For this reason, many times, they are removed as a precaution since they aren’t as critical of teeth. For example, most people who get deep decay on a wisdom tooth that turns into needing a root canal will opt to have the tooth removed instead. As long as the first and second molars are present, it shouldn’t affect the arch or chewing function.
How Much Does A Tooth Extraction Cost?
At our office, you will receive a complete exam before we quote you a fee. This is because we will evaluate the difficulty of the extraction and the health of the adjacent teeth before we determine the exact protocol. In addition, if you want sedation during the extraction, we would need to know that in advance. Most extractions vary in price depending on if the tooth fully erupts or if it is impacted. We offer and suggest coming in for a consultation beforehand to determine what your specific needs are. In some cases, we might want to do bone grafting to preserve the bone for a future denture or even a dental implant. If that is needed, then the price can vary as well.
At your consultation visit, we will also suggest some protocols to make sure your visit goes smoothly before and after the procedure so you are comfortable. Need an “extraction near me”?
What Should I Do About Post Extraction Care?
Ideally, we suggest patients have a family member or friend accompany them for their procedures. They can help to make sure you can rest and get your medication and get home safely.
After an extraction, we suggest biting on a moist gauze – that we will give you- to keep a gentle pressure and minimize bleeding or swelling. You should change the gauze every 20 minutes. In addition, you can apply an ice pack on your face in the area to prevent swelling. A little leakage is normal, but if you feel it is too much or lasts more than 24 hours, please contact our office immediately.
Other Tooth extraction aftercare
The best therapy after your treatment is eating soft foods and limiting opening and closing your jaw to let the tissue stabilize. You should also avoid smoking or sucking through a straw as that can potentially disrupt the clot or loosen any sutures.
How Long Is The Tooth Extraction Recovery Period?
The recovery period of your dental extraction may vary depending on the care you put after the treatment. If diligent and follow the suggestions above, you will have a good recovery. Typically, our dentist will recommend you to take it easy for 2-3 days for your gum to clot. After, you should be fully healed after 3-4 weeks.
