There are many reasons a tooth extraction may be required, including (but not limited to):
However, tooth extraction may not be your only option. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, we may still be able to provide you with quick relief while saving your tooth in the process. But early detection is crucial.
Before our dentists pull any teeth, they will carefully examine your symptoms and discuss your options to determine the best course of action for you and the health of your teeth.
Based on the preference of the dentist and the patient, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the areas where the tooth will be extracted. Sedation may also be available if it’s required. Our oral surgeons use a minimally invasive technique to remove teeth as gently as possible. Your comfort and quick recovery are our top priority.
You will be given aftercare instructions, including:
We would be happy to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any additional concerns you may have.
The cost of tooth extraction may vary depending on several factors. With a typical insurance plan, a tooth removal commonly costs about $100 — $200+ out of pocket. We would be happy to provide you with a quote in advance to submit to your insurance provider to find out what your out-of-pocket costs would be. Without insurance, you can expect to pay approximately $200 to $600+ per tooth.
No dental practice can give you an accurate quote over the phone because your treatment plan must be tailored to your specific needs and can only be determined after an oral exam. There are two broad categories that dental extractions fall under which may give you a better idea of what your extraction may cost and why:
A simple extraction is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth. These can be performed by a general dentist, using local anesthesia. A simple extraction of an accessible tooth without complication would merit a lower cost estimate.
A surgical extraction is a form of dental surgery, typically performed by an oral surgeon at a dental surgery center. This is a more complex procedure than a simple tooth extraction and involves the removal of a tooth that cannot easily be seen or reached, either because it has not fully erupted or it has broken off at the gum line. A surgical tooth extraction, requiring a great amount of consideration, delicate care, and expertise will come at a greater cost.
