Preventing infection.
Providing space for a tooth to erupt.
Saving other teeth.
Removing an impacted tooth.
Reducing pain.
Correcting overcrowding before orthodontics.

Don’t Suffer From Pain, Overcrowded Mouth, or Other Problems

If your mouth is overcrowded, new teeth may not have space to come in. Or you may have a less-than-perfect smile. The first can lead to pain and other dental issues, while the latter may make you not want to smile.

Leaving an infected tooth in your mouth can put your other teeth at risk if the infection spreads. Or maybe you are just dealing with a loose tooth. A loose tooth can cause challenges when eating, and even our dentists may not be able to save them.

Impacted teeth, including wisdom teeth, come with their own issues. Impacted teeth can damage others as they are growing in the wrong direction.

Restore Your Mouth’s Functionality and Prevent Future Damage

Tooth extraction is frequently the first step on the way to your mouth’s recovery. In the case of impacted teeth, you do not need to worry about the tooth damaging its neighbors anymore.

In the case of an overcrowded mouth, tooth extractions in Rohnert Park can prepare your mouth for orthodontics. This will get your teeth aligned for a beautiful smile and ease of chewing.

Extracting a tooth can also give you peace of mind. This is particularly true in the case of infected teeth that didn’t heal with other treatments. You will rest assured that you only lost a single tooth instead of dealing with a spreading infection.

Why would I need a tooth extraction?

You might need a tooth extraction for several reasons, including:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection that can’t be treated with a filling, crown, or root canal.
  • An impacted tooth, such as a wisdom tooth that doesn’t have enough space to grow properly.
  • A broken or damaged tooth that can’t be repaired.
  • Overcrowding, in which case some teeth may be removed to create space for orthodontic treatment.
  • A tooth that is loose due to gum disease and can’t be saved.

How is a tooth extraction performed?

A tooth extraction can be a simple or surgical procedure, depending on the tooth’s condition and location. For a simple extraction, your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic and use dental instruments called elevators and forceps to gently loosen and remove the tooth.

A surgical extraction is necessary if the tooth is impacted, broken, or has not fully erupted. In this case, your dentist or oral surgeon will make a small incision in your gum to access the tooth. They may need to remove some bone or cut the tooth into smaller pieces to extract it more easily. Surgical extractions are usually performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the procedure and your comfort level.

What to expect during an extraction?

During tooth extractions, we provide a local anesthetic. Sometimes, we may suggest a light sedative and/or laughing gas to help make the procedure more comfortable. Then, we gently apply pressure around the tooth which loosens it for removal. We may place some self-dissolving stitches if needed.

What should I expect after a tooth extraction?

After a tooth extraction, you can expect some bleeding, swelling, and discomfort for a few days. Your dentist or oral surgeon will provide you with instructions for at-home care, which may include:

  1. Applying ice packs to reduce swelling.
  2. Taking prescribed pain medications and antibiotics as directed.
  3. Avoiding smoking and drinking through a straw, as these can dislodge the blood clot and delay healing.
  4. Eating soft foods and gradually introducing solid foods as you heal.
  5. Gently rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater after 24 hours to help keep the area clean.

Are tooth extractions painful?

Tooth extractions are generally not painful, as your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth before starting the procedure. You may feel some pressure or tugging as the tooth is loosened and removed, but you shouldn’t experience significant pain. After the extraction, you may have some pain and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medications and self-care measures as recommended by your dentist.

How much does a tooth extraction cost?

The cost of a tooth extraction can vary depending on the complexity of the case, the type of extraction (simple or surgical), and where you live. On average, a simple tooth extraction can cost between $75 and $450, while a surgical extraction can range from $225 to $2,000 per tooth. Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of tooth extractions, so be sure to check with your insurance provider and dentist to find out how much your treatment will cost.
