Why Do You Need Tooth Removal?
There are many reasons why tooth removal is necessary. You might have a tooth that is too decayed or broken to be fixed, so we need to pull it out to remove the problem. It’s fairly common for people to need their wisdom teeth removed. These teeth are often impacted, which means they do not come through the gums, correctly or when they should. If the impacted wisdom teeth are not removed, they can cause problems like infection, gum disease or not having the space to grow. We provide wisdom tooth extraction in Franklin TN at Carothers Parkway General Dentistry.
Other scenarios are that you might have extra teeth, such as an upper tooth with no lower one, or teeth that are affecting your other teeth in a bad way, such as moving them out of place. Some people also need an extraction procedure because of orthodontic work, radiation, chemotherapy or organ transplant medication.
The Extraction Process
With some teeth, your dentist can do a simple extraction, which is pulling the tooth out. If you have this type of extraction, you will generally receive a local anesthetic, and possibly sedation or medication for anxiety as well, to make the process easier.
More difficult teeth, such as a wisdom molar tooth extraction, require surgical extractions. A dental specialist will perform this procedure with conscious sedation, local anesthesia or sometimes general anesthesia. Carothers Parkway General Dentistry can provide both types of extractions.
The Cost of a Dental Extraction
The tooth extraction cost can be fairly inexpensive — about $100 to $200 for a simple extraction. Surgical extractions, such as wisdom teeth removal, cost more, up to about $400. Sometimes, you will have more than one tooth removed, so the cost will be higher. If you have dental insurance, your plan can cover up to 80 percent of the cost if the procedure is necessary.
If you do not have dental insurance or you need assistance with the part insurance doesn’t cover, we provide flexible financing options to help you get the care you need.
