The Tooth Extraction Procedure
A simple procedure begins with the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the surrounding area. At that point a tool called an elevator is used to loosen and extract the tooth. The empty socket will initially bleed but pressure on a gauze pad will soon create a blood clot.
In the event of an impacted tooth, such as a wisdom tooth that has not erupted through the surface, the tooth extraction takes on a surgical approach. In addition to the local anesthetic we will add a form of sedation to keep you calm. The gums are surgically cut, the tooth is again extracted, and then the soft tissue will be closed with sutures. Pressure will stop the bleeding in a brief period.
The Costs associated with Tooth Extraction and the Insurance Coverage Available
The costs that will be associated with your tooth extraction will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. There might be just a few factors that might make the pricing vary. Your age, the condition of the tooth and the location in your mouth will affect the pricing. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in carrying out our plan.
