Dental extraction, as we all know is the process of pulling out or removing permanent teeth from its socket. If you've a broken tooth or a loose tooth that can't be saved with any kind of surgery or a tooth that has been badly damaged by decay or cavity, then your dentist might prescribe you to get that tooth pulled out. Apart from getting rid of the broken or damaged tooth, undergoing dental extraction will prevent any kind of severe gum diseases or tooth decay from happening. These extraction treatments can happen in any one of the following two ways – a simple extraction or a surgical extraction. Simple extraction treatment is done when your tooth is still visible in the mouth. In case of simple extraction, a dentist first loosens the tooth from its socket and then uses forceps to remove it slowly and gradually. Contrary to this, a surgical procedure is more complicated. This form of extraction treatment is generally used to treat conditions where the tooth has broken from the gum line or is not visible in the mouth. In these cases, the dentist or the oral surgeon makes a small incision in the gum to pull out the affected tooth. Simple extraction can be done using local anaesthesia. But in case of surgical extractions, in addition to local anaesthesia an intravenous anaesthesia is also given. While a simple extraction can cost $75-$300 depending on the tooth, surgical extraction treatment costs around $150-$650 or more. Extraction jobs typically takes 1 to 2 hours of time and once done, it takes a healing time of another 7 to 10 days.
