Common Reasons For Needing a Tooth Extracted

Tooth decay, disease or trauma are some of the main reasons patients may require a tooth extraction. The procedure provides relief from discomfort, disease progression and problems caused by poorly positioned teeth. We provide a no-pressure approach to dentistry, and our dentists will discuss your options with you to determine if tooth extraction is right for you.

The Tooth Extraction Procedure: What to Expect

The tooth extraction procedure can vary depending on the goal and reasons for the removal. In general, expect a form of local anesthetic and removal via a simple or surgical extraction. In some cases, teeth require sectioning, where the tooth is divided into sections and removed one section at a time.

Replacement Options for Extracted Teeth

Tooth Implants

Tooth implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. Implants are extremely safe and durable and look and function as natural teeth. Get the smile you’ve always wanted without sacrificing your quality of life.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a tooth appliance used for tooth restoration, particularly for missing teeth. The bridge consists of artificial teeth, known as pontics, held in place by crowns or implants. Dental bridges can be either fixed, where they are permanently attached to adjacent teeth or implants, or removable for easier cleaning.

Dentures

denture is an appliance inserted in the mouth to replace teeth and provide support for the cheeks and lips. Denture teeth are made of plastic, porcelain, or a combination of both. Complete dentures can be attached to dental implants for a more secure fit.

Dental Extraction Aftercare Tips

After your dental extraction, taking 2-3 days to rest is recommended before resuming normal activity. There will be a 3-4 week healing period for the soft tissue affected by the procedure.

How Much Does an Extraction Cost?

Tooth extraction in Wisconsin costs anywhere between $200 and $400, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the type of anesthesia necessary. Your dental insurance may cover some or all of the costs of the procedure. Windsor Family Dental offers affordable payment plans for tooth extractions to patients throughout Dane County in Madison, Sun Prairie, DeForest and beyond.

Extractions FAQs

 

Is tooth extraction painful?

Yes, having a tooth removed can hurt. Your dentist will typically give you a local anesthetic to eliminate pain and discomfort during this procedure. After the procedure, dentists recommend over-the-counter medications to help manage the pain. A large percentage of patients report mild pain and patients who report having severe pain normally can't tell the difference between that and extreme pressure.

How do I prepare myself for a tooth extraction?

Before your tooth extraction procedure, you should ask any questions you may have and share your medical history with your dentist. You'll also want to discuss what types of anesthesia or painkillers the dentist will provide or prescribe you during and after the procedure. You shouldn't eat anything for 12 hours prior to the extraction, and prepare for someone to take you home after the procedure.

When should a tooth be extracted?

If you have impacted teeth, tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth trauma or overcrowding, you may need to have a tooth extracted. You may also need a tooth extracted if your tooth is badly damaged and can't be restored with a filling or crown.

Should I take the day off after my tooth extraction?

It depends on if your job is physically demanding or not. If you do a lot of heavy lifting or severe movement, you may want to stay home for a day or two, sometimes even longer. When you engage in a lot of movement, your blood starts pumping and the pressure might make the extraction area bleed more. Increased heart rate and blood flow could cause your blood to clot.

What are restoration options after tooth extraction?

Replacing your tooth after extraction is important to maintain your oral health. Your dentist will assess your gums, teeth and bones after extraction to provide you with the best tooth replacement options. A few restoration options dentists recommend include dental bridges, partial dentures and dental implants. Most options can mimic the look of your natural teeth so it will be like you never even lost your tooth in the first place.

What is not allowed after tooth extraction?

Stay away from straws to prevent dry sockets. Don't use tobacco products for at least one week to avoid blood clotting. Don't spit or rinse your mouth to prevent blood clots from dislodging. Avoid blowing your nose or sneezing since this can also dislodge a blood clot. Follow any instructions regarding pain medication, eating, and aftercare that your dentist provides.
