While it is always our goal to save your natural teeth, sometimes an extraction is necessary. Do you have a problem tooth that may need to be extracted? At San Ramon Valley Dental, we provide gentle tooth extractions including wisdom teeth.
At San Ramon Valley Dental, we know that sometimes there are teeth which cannot be saved. This can occur for a number of reasons including injury, decay, crowding or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
What Do Teeth Extractions Cost?
The cost of teeth extractions vary. It can depend on many factors including the placement of a tooth, the condition of the tooth, whether or not it is impacted, and what type of sedation is used for the procedure. We do accept most dental insurance programs in our area, and financing options are available. Call us today to learn more about costs and payment options.
Are Teeth Extractions Safe?
Yes, we work hard to ensure our patients are safe throughout every procedure. Because this procedure is, in most cases, a last resort, we take special care to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed. We offer sedation dentistry for your comfort, and we will monitor you throughout the entire procedure.
Do Teeth Extractions Hurt?
Typically, teeth extractions are very quick, and most patients only feel pressure, not pain. In addition to local anesthesia, we offer laughing gas and oral sedation to keep you comfortable and stress-free. Our office can also provide blankets and pillows to ensure a positive experience.
What Should I Expect During a Tooth Extraction?
Before we start an extraction, we will perform an examination and take X-rays to assess your tooth. We will then numb the tooth using local anesthesia and provide additional sedation as necessary. The dentist will then remove your tooth and pack the area with gauze. If necessary, you may receive stitches.
At San Ramon Valley Dental, we make sure our patients are comfortable during their teeth extraction appointments. If you need to have a tooth pulled, you should contact us right away. Our team will make sure you are well taken care of. We even offer laughing gas or oral sedation for the patients who need it.
