Tooth Extraction in Lynnwood
Dentist, Lynnwood, WA
Emergency Tooth Extraction & Surgical Tooth Extraction
There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.
When it is determined that a tooth needs to be removed, your dentist may extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may request another visit for this procedure. The root of each tooth is encased within your jawbone in a “tooth socket,” and your tooth is held in that socket by a ligament. In order to extract a tooth, your dentist must expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament holding it in place. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with your doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.
Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, your dentist may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth.
Cost of Tooth Extraction
At Lynnwood Dental Studio tooth extraction costs between $185 and $300, depending on whether it is simple or surgical extraction.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Lynnwood
Impacted Wisdom Tooth Removal In Lynnwood, WA
Many people have wisdom teeth but can’t keep them clean or don’t have enough room in their mouths for their wisdom teeth to completely break through their gums. Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can partially break through, leaving a small space for decay to set in. Tooth decay can infect your tooth and surrounding areas, and often causes a substantial toothache referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.
Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extraction
If you’re in pain from a decaying wisdom tooth, our dentist at Lynnwood Dental Studio can treat the infection, and if necessary, extract the tooth. In more complicated cases, patients may be referred to another trusted oral surgeon in your area who specializes in wisdom teeth extractions.
