Tooth extractions don’t have to be intimidating

At AV Dental Wellness Group, we utilize modern technologies to extract problematic teeth with minimal discomfort and as stress-free as possible.

Teeth Extraction — What is it?

Teeth extraction involves removing a tooth from its place in the jawbone. This procedure becomes necessary when keeping the tooth isn’t an option or won’t resolve the issue long-term. Common reasons for extraction include severe damage, decay, crowding, infection risk, or preparation for braces. At AV Dental Wellness Group, we view extractions as a step towards relieving discomfort, promoting healing, and embarking on the journey to a healthier smile.

When Teeth Extractions Are Necessary

Curious why a tooth extraction might be needed? Here are some typical reasons:

  • Severe Damage or Decay: Extraction may be the best solution when a tooth is too damaged to repair.
  • Orthodontic Preparation: Removing one or more teeth might be necessary to achieve optimal orthodontic results.
  • Risk of Infection: Extracting a diseased tooth can prevent potential infections that could spread.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: In young adults, impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and other dental issues if not removed.

Types of Dental Extractions

During your dental exam, we’ll take an X-ray of your affected tooth to determine if it needs to be removed and which type of extraction is recommended:

Simple Tooth Extractions

Most dental extractions are what we call a simple extraction. These procedures can be performed using local anesthetic (numbing medication) and require minimal healing time.

Surgical Dental Extraction

If a tooth is impacted within the gum or bone tissues, a simple extraction is prohibited. Instead, surgical removal of the tooth is required. A classic example is wisdom tooth removal, which is usually regarded as a type of oral surgery. Surgical extractions can be performed by family dentists, oral surgeons, or other dental specialists.

Replacing Your Tooth After a Tooth Extraction 

Other than removing wisdom teeth, dental extractions create excess spacing in your smile. These newly created openings can cause other teeth to drift out of alignment or wear down abnormally. Even the opposing teeth may “super-erupt” in an attempt to find a biting partner. To protect your smile’s integrity and alignment, it’s important to replace your extracted tooth at your earliest opportunity.

Common types of tooth replacements to consider include dental implants, a fixed bridge, or a partial denture. We’ll review the entire care plan with you so that you know how much time is involved and any additional fees to consider, including those related to sedation.

Bone Grafts After Dental Extractions

Removing a tooth triggers a natural bone resorption (shrinking) process around the socket, where the tooth roots previously set. Placing a bone graft in this space helps avoid bone loss, which is important if you are planning to get dental implants or need to reinforce the neighboring teeth.

Most bone grafts are installed on the same day as your tooth extraction. However, they are not necessary when removing baby teeth or wisdom teeth.

How to Prevent Dental Extractions

Because most simple extractions are due to issues like decay or gum disease, preventative dental care is key. Plan to treat any issues early before they spread deeper into the tooth. Earlier treatments are more conservative and help preserve healthy tooth structure.

Cost of Dental Extractions in Lancaster, CA

The fee for a dental extraction will depend on the type of extraction it is, which tooth is involved, if you’re being sedated, and other factors associated with the procedure. Generally speaking, a simple extraction may cost between $150-$500, whereas a surgical extraction begins at around $300 per tooth. To prevent any confusion, our Lancaster dentist will provide you with a detailed treatment plan outlining all fees.
