Symptoms To Watch Out For

Tooth pain can be excruciating, leading some to consider tooth extraction as the only escape from a toothache. We understand your discomfort and are here to offer fast relief, including potential options to preserve your tooth.

Please let us know if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Pain exacerbated by pressure or chewing
  • Jaw pain or stiffness
  • Swollen gums around the affected tooth or teeth
  • Signs of gum disease, such as discolouration, bleeding, or a foul odor

The Treatment Plan

There are various reasons why a tooth may need to be removed, including the extraction of baby teeth that do not exfoliate naturally, extractions for orthodontic reasons, and extractions due to pain or infection.

A dental extraction typically involves a single office visit and is conducted by a dentist. Here is the general process for tooth extraction:

Looking for Solutions

You might believe that extraction is the sole solution for relief or feel that it’s unavoidable. However, there could be alternative methods to swiftly alleviate discomfort while also preserving the tooth. Our goal is to maintain your oral health, alleviate any pain, and retain your natural tooth whenever possible. Before any extractions, we will thoroughly examine your situation and discuss all available options with you.

The Removal Process

Depending on the dentist’s and patient’s preferences, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the extraction site. Sedation options are also available if needed. We employ a minimally invasive approach to gently extract teeth, prioritizing your comfort and ensuring a speedy recovery.

Feeling Better

After the extraction, you’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions, covering how to care for your healing mouth, what to expect during the recovery process, and steps to take if any complications arise. We’re here to support you and can schedule a follow-up appointment to address any further questions or concerns you may have.

Cost Of A Dental Extraction In Kanata

The cost of dental extractions can vary widely. With a typical insurance plan, a dental extraction commonly costs about $100 — $200+ out of pocket. We would be happy to provide you with a quote in advance to submit to your insurance provider to find out what your out of pocket costs would be. Without insurance, you can expect to pay approximately $200 to $600+ per tooth. The cost of a dental extraction will vary depending on a number of factors.

No dental practice can give you an accurate quote over the phone because your treatment plan must be tailored to your specific needs and can only be determined after an oral exam. There are two broad categories that dental extractions fall under which may give you a better idea of what your extraction may cost and why:

Simple Tooth Extraction

A simple extraction is performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth. These can be performed by a general dentist, using local anesthesia. A simple extraction of an accessible tooth without complication would merit a lower cost estimate.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

A surgical extraction is more complex and involves the removal of a tooth that cannot easily be seen or reached, either because it has not fully erupted or it has broken off at the gum line. A surgical extraction, requiring a great amount of consideration, delicate care and expertise will come at a greater cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people believe wisdom teeth removal is a rite of passage. In reality, wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they become impacted or otherwise interfere with your jaw and teeth.

Modern dentistry places a high emphasis on compassion, and your comfort is our priority. We utilize advanced tools and techniques to minimize discomfort, enabling us to work swiftly, accurately, and with minimal trauma to promote rapid healing. Following your procedure, we will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure your comfort and facilitate a speedy recovery.

Approximately an hour following your procedure, you can remove the gauze sponges from your mouth and start eating. Stick to soft foods for the initial 24 hours. Avoid hot foods and drinking through straws for several hours.

During your appointment, we will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions tailored to your specific needs. However, here are some general guidelines to follow after a tooth extraction to reduce the risk of complications and promote a fast recovery: Refrain from spitting, rinsing your mouth, blowing your nose, using a straw, or smoking in the first 24 hours post-extraction. Avoid touching the extraction site with your finger or tongue. Steer clear of hot foods and drinks. Do not take aspirin, as it can impede blood clotting. Additionally, limit physical activities and exercise during this time.

Ideally, you should schedule three or four days of rest or light duty after your wisdom teeth come out. Resting will minimize your risk of complications and help you heal. Full recovery takes around 2 weeks but you should feel minimal discomfort during this time.
