Symptoms to Watch Out For

Experiencing severe tooth pain? We understand your distress and offer solutions that may alleviate pain and preserve your tooth. Let us help you find quick and effective relief.

    If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, let us know:

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Pain that increases with pressure or chewing
  • Jaw discomfort or stiffness
  • Swollen gums around the affected tooth
  • Indicators of gum disease like discolouration, bleeding, or a foul odour

The Treatment Plan

Tooth extraction might be necessary for various reasons. Teeth causing pain or infection often need to be removed. Baby teeth that fail to fall out naturally may also require extraction, as well as teeth that need to be removed for orthodontic purposes.

A dental extraction typically requires just one office visit and is performed by a dentist. Here’s how the process works:

Looking for Solutions

You might believe extraction is your only option for relief, but there could be alternative treatments that save your tooth while providing quick relief. Our goal is to keep you healthy, alleviate pain, and preserve your tooth. Before deciding on extraction, we will thoroughly examine you and discuss all available options.

The Removal Process

The tooth removal process begins with numbing the area using a local anesthetic, based on the preferences of both the dentist and the patient. Sedation options may also be available if necessary. We employ minimally invasive techniques to ensure the extraction is as gentle as possible, aiming for your comfort and a speedy recovery.

Feeling Better

We’ll provide you with comprehensive aftercare guidelines to ensure a smooth healing process, including tips on mouth care and managing any potential issues. If needed, we’re available to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any lingering concerns.

Cost of a Dental Extraction in Toronto

Dental extraction costs can vary significantly. With typical insurance coverage, out-of-pocket expenses are usually between $100 and $200+. We can provide a detailed quote in advance for submission to your insurance provider, helping you determine your exact out-of-pocket costs. Without insurance, you can expect to pay around $200 to $600+ per tooth.

Accurate quotes for dental extractions can’t be provided over the phone since a personalized treatment plan is necessary and can only be determined after a thorough oral exam. However, to give you a general idea of potential costs, dental extractions are categorized into two main types:

Simple Tooth Extraction
Simple extractions are done on teeth that are easily visible in the mouth. This procedure is usually carried out by a general dentist with local anesthesia. Because these extractions are uncomplicated and involve easily accessible teeth, they tend to be more affordable.

Surgical Tooth Extraction
Surgical extractions are necessary for teeth that are difficult to access, such as those that haven’t fully emerged or are broken at the gum line. These procedures are more involved and require specialized care, which results in higher costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth don’t always need to be removed. Extraction is only necessary if they become impacted or cause problems with your jaw and other teeth.

Modern dentistry prioritizes your comfort, utilizing advanced tools and techniques to minimize discomfort, ensure quick and precise procedures, and reduce trauma for faster healing. We also provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you stay comfortable and promote a speedy recovery.

You can eat about an hour after your procedure, once you remove the gauze sponges from your mouth. Stick to soft foods for the first 24 hours, and avoid hot foods and using straws for several hours to ensure proper healing.

We will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions at your appointment. To minimize complications and promote a speedy recovery, follow these general guidelines:

  • Avoid spitting, rinsing your mouth, blowing your nose, using a straw, and smoking for the first 24 hours
  • Refrain from touching the extraction site with your finger or tongue
  • Avoid hot foods and drinks
  • Do not take aspirin, as it inhibits blood clotting
  • Avoid physical activities and exercise

After having your wisdom teeth removed, it’s best to take three to four days to rest and allow for proper healing. This helps reduce the risk of complications. While full recovery takes about two weeks, you should experience only minor discomfort during this period.
