Is Tooth Removal Required?

There are various reasons why a tooth extraction might become necessary, which include (but are not limited to):

  1. Extracting baby teeth that are struggling to shed naturally.
  2. Removing teeth as part of orthodontic treatment.
  3. Addressing tooth pain or infections.
  4. Dealing with a fractured tooth.

Nevertheless, tooth extraction may not be your sole option. If you’re suffering from toothache, we may still have the possibility to provide prompt relief while preserving your tooth. Timely detection is crucial in this regard.

Please inform us if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  1. Intense tooth pain.
  2. Pain that worsens with pressure or while chewing.
  3. Jaw discomfort or stiffness.
  4. Swollen gums around one or more teeth.
  5. Indications of gum disease, such as discoloration, bleeding, or unpleasant breath.

The Treatment Plan

A tooth extraction procedure is typically conducted by a dentist or an oral surgeon and typically involves just a single office visit. Below is an overview of the process, starting with the evaluation of whether tooth removal is the appropriate course of action for you, followed by the extraction itself, and concluding with aftercare:

Looking for Solutions

Prior to any tooth extraction, our dentists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your symptoms and engage in a discussion with you about the available options. This process aims to determine the most suitable course of action for both your well-being and the health of your teeth.

The Removal Process

Depending on the dentist’s and patient’s preferences, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the specific areas where the tooth extraction will take place. If needed, sedation options may also be offered. Our oral surgeons employ a minimally invasive approach to remove teeth with utmost gentleness. Our primary concern is ensuring your comfort and a swift recovery.

Feeling Better

You will receive comprehensive aftercare instructions, which will cover:

  1. Proper care for your healing mouth.
  2. What to anticipate during the recovery process.
  3. Steps to take if any complications arise.

Should you have any further questions or concerns, we would be delighted to arrange a follow-up appointment to address them.

Cost Of A Dental Extraction In Kitchener

The cost of tooth extraction can vary based on several factors. With a typical insurance plan, a tooth removal usually ranges from $100 to $200 or more out of pocket. We are pleased to offer you a pre-quote that you can submit to your insurance provider to determine your expected out-of-pocket expenses. Without insurance coverage, you can anticipate a cost of approximately $200 to $600 or more per tooth.

It’s important to note that no dental practice can provide an exact quote over the phone because your treatment plan must be customized to your specific needs, which can only be determined after a thorough oral examination. Dental extractions generally fall into two broad categories that can provide you with a better understanding of potential costs:

  1. Simple Tooth Extraction:
    • This procedure is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth.
    • It can be carried out by a general dentist using local anesthesia.
    • A straightforward extraction of an accessible tooth without complications typically results in a lower cost estimate.
  2. Surgical Tooth Extraction:
    • Surgical extractions are a type of dental surgery, often performed by an oral surgeon at a dental surgery center.
    • This is a more complex procedure compared to simple tooth extraction.
    • It involves the removal of a tooth that cannot be easily seen or reached, either because it has not fully erupted or has broken off at the gum line.
    • Surgical tooth extraction requires careful consideration, delicate care, and expertise, which results in a higher cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tooth extraction becomes necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, irreparable damage, advanced gum disease, overcrowding, impacted wisdom teeth, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment. The need for extraction is determined by a dentist or oral surgeon after evaluating the specific dental issue.

The cost of a tooth extraction can vary depending on factors such as location, the complexity of the extraction, insurance coverage, and whether it’s a simple or surgical extraction. On average, with insurance, it may range from $100 to $200+ out of pocket. Without insurance, the cost can be approximately $200 to $600+ per tooth.

The pain experienced during a tooth extraction is typically manageable and minimized through local anesthesia or sedation. Patients may feel some pressure and discomfort during the procedure, but severe pain is usually rare. Post-extraction discomfort can be controlled with prescribed pain medication and usually subsides within a few days.

The recovery time after a tooth extraction can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and individual healing. In general, most people can expect to resume their regular activities within a day or two. Complete healing of the extraction site, including the formation of new bone, can take several weeks to a few months.

Dry socket is a potential complication that occurs when the blood clot that forms in the extraction socket is dislodged or dissolves prematurely. The risk of dry socket is highest in the first few days after extraction, typically within the first 3 to 5 days. After this period, the likelihood of developing a dry socket significantly decreases, and the extraction site continues to heal. It’s important to follow post-operative care instructions to minimize the risk of this condition.

My oldest had her second visit today and did amazing! - Dr. Gobrial the first time and Dr. Solimon the second. Both experiences were great and here’s a picture for proof. Her little sister was there today for emotional support, she had fun taking a ride on the Chair, feeling like a rock star in the special sunglasses and picking a prize from the treasure bin. I wish I was as good of a patient as my little one was today as a kid. One proud Mama! Thank you Forest Glen dental.

Dr. Sandra Ghobrial was terrific and he explained everything in detail nicely and patiently. He is great at handling kids and made my 7 year old daughter very comfortable for her first filling of a life. The entire staff was so welcoming. Definitely this would be our go to place for any future dental needs.
