Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Sometimes, a tooth extraction is the right solution for various situations, such as:

  1. Removing Stubborn Baby Teeth: Some baby teeth need a little help coming out on their own.
  2. Orthodontic Treatment: Extractions might be necessary as part of orthodontic procedures to create a better smile.
  3. Dealing with Pain or Infection: When a tooth causes pain or infection, extraction can provide relief.
  4. Handling a Broken Tooth: If a tooth is severely broken, extraction may be the best choice.

However, remember, extraction isn’t always the only answer. If you’re in tooth pain, we may have alternatives to save your tooth and provide quick relief. Detecting issues early is vital.

Let Us Know if You Have:

  • Severe tooth pain.
  • Pain that gets worse with chewing or pressure.
  • Jaw discomfort or stiffness.
  • Swollen gums around your tooth or teeth.
  • Signs of gum disease like discoloration, bleeding, or bad breath.

We’re here to help you maintain a healthy smile.

The Treatment Process

When you’re facing a tooth extraction, rest assured it’s a straightforward process typically completed in just one office visit. Here’s an overview of what you can expect:

Plan for Solutions

Before any tooth extraction, our dentists take a thorough approach to ensure your best interests and the health of your teeth. This includes:

  • Symptom Evaluation: We carefully examine your symptoms to understand your specific dental needs.
  • Discussion of Options: We engage in a detailed conversation with you, exploring all possible options to determine the most suitable course of action.

Removal Procedure

Your comfort is of utmost importance to us during the tooth extraction procedure. Depending on your preferences and the dentist’s recommendations, we offer the following options:

  • Local Anesthetic: We can use a local anesthetic to numb the specific areas where the tooth will be removed, ensuring you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
  • Sedation: If necessary or preferred, we provide sedation options to enhance your comfort and relaxation throughout the process.

Our skilled oral surgeons employ minimally invasive techniques to remove teeth gently and efficiently, prioritizing your comfort and promoting a swift recovery. Your well-being is our top concern.

Feel Better

After your tooth extraction, we provide clear aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery:

  • We’ll guide you on how to care for your mouth as it heals.
  • You’ll receive information on what to expect during the healing process.
  • In case you experience any complications, we’ll outline the necessary steps to take.

Your well-being is our priority, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. If you have any additional concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re more than happy to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any further needs or inquiries you may have.

Navigating Dental Extraction Costs: Las Vegas Practice Insights

The expense of a tooth extraction can vary based on several factors. Typically, with insurance coverage, a tooth removal may cost around $100 to $200+ out of pocket. We’re happy to provide you with a pre-treatment quote that you can submit to your insurance provider to determine your exact out-of-pocket expenses. For those without insurance, the approximate cost per tooth can range from $200 to $600+.

Please note that no precise quote can be given over the phone because your treatment plan must be personalized after an oral examination. However, dental extractions generally fall into two categories, providing some insight into potential costs:

1. Simple Tooth Extraction

  • These are performed on teeth visible in your mouth and are typically done by a general dentist using local anesthesia. Simple extractions of accessible teeth tend to have lower cost estimates.

2. Surgical Tooth Extraction

  • This type of extraction involves more complexity and is often conducted by an oral surgeon at a dental surgery center. It’s necessary when a tooth is not easily visible or reachable, such as when it hasn’t fully erupted or has broken at the gum line. Given the increased consideration, delicate care, and expertise involved, surgical tooth extractions generally come at a higher cost.

Please visit our practice in Las Vegas for a thorough evaluation and a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs. We’re here to help you make informed decisions about your dental care.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental extractions are typically performed to address issues like severe tooth decay, infection, overcrowding, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

The procedure is typically performed under anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the extraction. Some discomfort afterward is normal but manageable.

The duration can vary but is often a relatively quick procedure, taking anywhere from a few minutes to 30 minutes or more for more complex cases.

Surgical extractions usually require stitches, while simple extractions often do not.

Stick to soft, cool foods like yogurt, pudding, and mashed potatoes for the first few days.

Recovery times vary, but most people can resume normal activities within a few days to a week.

It’s generally recommended to have someone drive you home after the procedure, as the anesthesia can impair your ability to drive safely.

You should avoid brushing the extraction site for the first 24 hours and then gently clean the area as directed by your dentist.

    I had a great experience with Dr. Truong and the entire staff during my new patient and filling appointments. Everyone is so kind, and the staff works together as a team. Dr. Truong and Kris, the hygienist, were thorough and great listeners. During my filling appointment I had painless numbing injections done by Dr. Truong, and he worked quickly while being so precise. I would recommend Dr. Lobato & Associates to anyone!

    I have been with doctor Lobato for over 20 years, BEFORE that time l went thru 3 dentist, before l met him. A few years ago they changed my plan and l had to change to another dentist. Which was a very miserable time for my teeth. I finally got the opportunity to change my health and Dr. Lobato was one of the first doctors l went back to. Now once again my teeth 😬 and my dental health is perfect again. Not only is he great so is his staff.
