Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extraction Services

Many adults and teens get their wisdom teeth removed, there are a variety of other reasons why tooth extractions may be needed. For example, excessive tooth decay or crowding are two of the leading factors that lead people to get their teeth removed.

What Happens During My Appointment?

The tooth extraction procedure may vary depending on whether your tooth is visible or impacted. First of all, we’ll determine whether or not it’s possible to get your tooth removed. In some cases, the only solution is to remove your teeth; for example, uncontrolled infection, loose teeth, a crowded mouth, and excessive decay. 

Simple Extraction

During a simple extraction, you’ll receive a local anesthetic to numb the area so that you don’t feel pain or pressure around your teeth. Our dentist will simply use an instrument called an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps before removing it. In most cases, a simple extraction is a quick, simple, and painless experience. 

Surgical Extraction

Surgical tooth extraction is a little complicated procedure. You’re likely to receive both intravenous and local anesthesia to make the entire procedure painless and comfortable. Our general dentist will cut into your gum with the help of a small incision. A surgical tooth extraction procedure may involve cutting away teeth or gum before extraction.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost?

The cost of a tooth extraction varies depending on what procedure is required to remove your teeth. Simple extraction generally costs between $120 and $450 per tooth. The extraction of impacted teeth is higher. However, the tooth extraction costs largely depend on the type of procedures and anesthesia you receive. To learn more about the cost, feel free to give us a call at 778-970-4900.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth normally come through between the ages of 17 – 25. Sometimes there is not enough room in the mouth and they become impacted in the gums. This can cause gum infections or decay. At Carvolth Dentistry, we recommend you book a consultation if you are experiencing pain from your wisdom teeth. Often you can have them removed in the general dental practice, however, in some situations, you may need to be referred to an oral surgeon. Your Carvolth dentist will assess your wisdom teeth and the options for removing them to prevent any further pain or complications for you.
