If you have dental conditions that require removing your teeth, a dental extraction is an ultimate procedure for you. It is a treatment that helps to stop the spread of infection to the rest of the teeth.
There are two types of extractions, which are surgical and simple. At the Coeur D’Alene Family Dentistry, our dental experts help determine if you really need a dental extraction and, if you do, analyze which type of extraction is best suited for your dental condition.
The patient has to first undergo a complete dental checkup which helps to determine if extraction is needed. If the restoration of the teeth is no longer possible, tooth extraction would be advised.
The patient is then provided local anesthesia to help numb the area to be treated. The problem tooth is then cleaned, loosened using an elevator, and extracted using dental forceps. The patient has to bite down on sterile gauze to control the bleeding. Aftercare instructions are provided to the patients, which are to be strictly followed to heal the extraction.
The cost of having a dental extraction done depends on several factors. These include:
Nevertheless, dental extraction is a cost-effective treatment that helps avoid the further spread of infections and damages to oral hygiene.
