Although dentists want to save their patients’ teeth, there are situations when a tooth extraction is the best option. The process for extracting the data is simple. Your dentist will first numb the area before loosening the tooth and extracting it with forceps. Dental extractions, also known as simple extractions, can be completed in less time than it takes to numb your tooth and gums using local anesthesia.

What is the Average Cost of Tooth Extraction?
Because we base the charge on the type of extraction you need and whether there are any associated fees, such as nitrous oxide, you will need an assessment by your dentist before he or she can establish the fee you will pay. To find out how much your extraction will cost, call our office to book an appointment.
What Are Surgical Extractions and How Do They Work?
A surgical extraction is a type of oral surgery that is performed when a tooth hasn’t fully developed and a dentist must cut your gums to retrieve the tooth. After a surgical extraction, you may require stitches.
Why is it necessary to pull a severely decayed or cracked tooth?
It is impossible to heal a tooth if the crack or break destroys the root, leaving tooth extraction as the sole choice. In many cases, when serious decay goes into the gums and there is an infection, extraction is the only option. So that your remaining teeth do not shift, our dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, such as a bridge or implant.
Is it Ever Necessary to Have Dental Tooth Removal Services for Baby Teeth?
Because of overcrowding, decay that is too extensive to be filled, or infection, your kid may need a baby tooth pulled.
Would you need a tooth pulled if you have gum disease?
Gum recession and damage to the ligaments that attach a tooth to the jawbone are symptoms of advanced periodontal disease. We will extract the tooth if it is loose and causing you pain.
Is it necessary to have your wisdom teeth extracted?
In many circumstances, patients’ wisdom teeth are unable to erupt due to a lack of space in their mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth don’t come out or only partially emerge, causing the teeth next to them to be impacted. If our dentist determines that removing your wisdom teeth in our office isn’t possible, you’ll be referred to an oral surgeon for a surgical extraction.
Teeth are pulled for braces for a variety of reasons.
The purpose of braces is to align your teeth properly, which is impossible if you have too many teeth to fit in your jaw. Straight teeth are more than a cosmetic matter; crooked teeth are practically impossible to clean correctly. Gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, can be caused by not being able to properly clean your teeth.
What Are the Aftercare Instructions for a Tooth Extraction?
Our dentist will give you detailed instructions, but during the first day, you should avoid doing anything that will produce suction in your mouth. The blood that develops can be dislodged by drinking through a straw, smoking, and other activities. Limit your activities and stay away from the extraction site when crewing or brushing. You should also avoid heavy exercise for a day or two, and follow your dentist’s pain-relieving instructions, including using an ice pack to reduce swelling.
When Will The Extraction Site On My Tooth Heal?
The length of time it takes for you to recover from a tooth extraction is determined on the size of the tooth removed. The wound will heal in one to two weeks with uncomplicated extractions, but it will take longer if the tooth was a molar. Extractions performed surgically also take longer to heal.
Call our office at (757) 394-8734 to schedule an examination if you think you might need a tooth extracted. We’ll strive to save the tooth if feasible, but if that’s not possible, we’ll do everything we can to make your tooth extraction in Virginia Beach as painless as possible.
