Why Choose Amaze Dental for Tooth Extractions?

Reasons Why Tooth Extractions Are Necessary

We consider tooth extraction to be an absolute last resort, which means if we recommend one, it’s because there is a significant issue with your tooth that cannot be resolved with other dental services. We may suggest a tooth extraction in the following circumstances:

Keep in mind that teeth that have become severely damaged and cannot be saved through root canal therapy are also removed to prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the mouth.

The Process of Removing a Tooth

During your visit, we’ll make sure that you’re feeling comfortable and administer all local anesthesia as needed. If you’d prefer to be even more relaxed during the procedure, you can take advantage of our multiple sedation options.

After locating the tooth in question, we’ll use a dental elevator to gently remove the tooth from the periodontal ligament holding it in place. Then, we’ll use a pair of dental forceps to remove the tooth and ask you to bite down onto a gauze pad to reduce any bleeding. From there, we’ll break down exactly what you can expect over the next few days as your mouth starts to heal.

Before you leave, we may also recommend thinking about future tooth replacement options to make your smile complete again. This could include dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants.

Tooth Extraction Aftercare

Understanding the Cost of Tooth Extractions

Even if you’d like an extraction, you might hesitate due to the potential expense. After all, there’s no point in pulling a tooth if you can’t afford to do so. However, the cost of tooth extraction in DeSoto varies from patient to patient. You can thus only get a treatment estimate at an in-person consultation. Fortunately, we at Amaze Dental will walk you through every step of the financing process. If you’d like to learn more, just keep reading or call our office for more details!

Factors That Can Affect Tooth Extraction Cost

To fully determine your extraction’s cost, our team will need to assess the tooth (or teeth) in question. In particular, we’ll examine it (or them) in light of the following factors:

  • Tooth Location & Type: Depending on whether it’s a molar, canine, or so on, extracting a given tooth will cost more or less. Of course, pulling several teeth will also be more expensive than just pulling one.
  • Extraction Difficulty: Per its name, a simple extraction is straightforward and thus less costly. In contrast, an impacted extraction is complex and can get expensive.
  • Tooth Replacement Options: Treatment costs more if you follow an extraction with a tooth replacement service. Furthermore, some restorations are pricier than others — implants involve more expenses than dentures, etc.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Tooth Extractions?

Put simply, yes — dental insurance often does cover tooth extractions. In fact, a policy’s coverage will usually extend to 50% of an extraction’s cost.

All the same, there may be restrictions. Some dental plans only cover some teeth, while others have a waiting period before coverage starts. As such, you should confirm the details with your insurance provider first. If you want, our team can even assist you with doing so.

How to Make Tooth Extractions Affordable

Of course, you can have an affordable tooth extraction even without insurance.

  • Membership Plan: For a low yearly fee, our office’s membership plan can give you a 25% discount on a simple extraction. This markdown would reduce the treatment price from $200 to about $150.
  • Flexible Financing: We work with the third-party services CareCredit and LendingClub. Through them, you can pay for treatment in monthly, low-interest installments. That way, you can manage the costs over time instead of all at once.
  • Special Offers: As of now, you can get a limited emergency exam and X-ray with Amaze Dental for just $19!

Ultimately, Amaze Dental can and will help you with the tooth extraction procedure. To ensure budget-friendly care, we’ll even navigate the costs alongside you! Therefore, go ahead and book a visit to our office — your smile will thank you for it!
