Tooth Extraction – Understanding the Process of Pulling Teeth


The average person associates pulling teeth with trauma and pain, but tooth extraction is really a relatively simple procedure that dentists perform to prevent more serious complications in a damaged or decaying tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth are a common cause for extractions; even if they don’t cause obvious symptoms, they can lead to infection and pain later in life. A tooth that crowds out adjacent teeth or erupts at an inappropriate angle may also be extracted. Here are some commonly asked tooth extraction questions:

What is the Tooth Extraction Cost?
In advance of your dentist pulling teeth, it’s important to discuss the tooth extraction cost. The price of an extraction depends on a variety of factors, including the location and condition of the tooth and the patient’s overall health. In general, a wisdom tooth extraction costs more than a routine extraction of a loose or damaged tooth. Patients without dental insurance can discuss financing options with their dentist. Many clinics offer reasonable payment plans.

Is There Pain When Pulling Teeth?
It’s normal to feel anxious about feeling pain during a tooth extraction, but in most cases, it can be reduced or eliminated. Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding tissues. Conscious sedation is a possible solution for patients experiencing extreme anxiety. To prepare the tooth for extraction, the dentist will rock it back and forth and rotate it to widen the socket. When the tooth becomes detached from its connecting tissues, the dentist will remove it, and place gauze over the exposed gum.

What Should I Do After My Tooth Extraction?
Following the tooth extraction, your dentist will provide specific instructions that will help to facilitate healing, which may include:

  • Applying ice to reduce swelling
  • Taking an antibiotic.
  • Avoiding certain foods for several days.
  • Prohibiting strenuous exercise for a short time.

Be aware that complete healing after a tooth extraction will take several weeks.
