Are tooth extractions painful?
The idea of tooth extraction may sound painful, but at Growing Smiles Pediatric and Family Dentistry, our team provides gentle tooth extractions for patients who can benefit from tooth removal. To prepare patients for a comfortable tooth removal experience, we numb the area using a local anesthetic and even offer sedation options. Most patients feel only slight pressure as the tooth is pulled.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
Healing and recovery after tooth removal are critical parts of the removal process. Most patients take up to a week or two to recover from tooth removal but can resume regular activity after three days. During this time, it’s normal to feel some discomfort. Placing an ice pack to reduce swelling, eating soft foods, and keeping the extraction site clean can help with recovery or discomfort.
How much does it cost to pull a tooth?
The cost to pull a tooth will range from several factors. Which tooth needs extraction, how many teeth get extracted, and if the tooth getting pulled is impacted. Simple tooth extraction can cost in the low hundreds per tooth, whereas surgical extractions can cost in the high hundreds to low thousands. If you opt for sedation, the cost to pull a tooth could increase. Generally, dental insurance may cover a portion of tooth extractions, making them more affordable for patients.
