You should also attend all recommended follow-up appointments. If you plan to get a tooth replaced, timing is important; waiting too long to get a dental implant or bridge could complicate the details of your case.

Understanding the Cost of Tooth Extractions

The cost of a tooth extraction, along with associated care, can vary from case to case. It depends on a number of factors. Our team will be sure to provide a personalized price estimate when we are discussing your recommended treatment plan. With the help of insurance, financing, and/or our in-house dental savings plan, most patients find that the cost of their extraction procedure is quite easy to manage.

Factors That Can Affect Tooth Extraction Cost

Some factors that can influence the cost of tooth extractions include:

  • Which tooth needs to be removed. Due to their location in the mouth, some teeth are more challenging to remove than others. Therefore, they incur higher fees.
  • The number of teeth that need to be extracted. Logically, the removal of one tooth costs less than the removal of several.
  • The overall complexity of your case. If your tooth is impacted or there are other complicating factors in your case, you can expect a higher total bill. In some instances, Dr. Kar partners with another local specialist to handle complex situations, which can further affect the total cost of your treatment.
  • Additional care. If you choose to be sedated during your procedure, that will be reflected in your financial obligation. After an extraction, tooth replacement can also increase the total cost of your care. There are different types of sedation and tooth replacement, which can naturally have a bearing on cost.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Tooth Extractions?

In most cases, yes, dental insurance covers a portion of the cost of tooth extractions. For simple extractions, about 80% of the cost may be covered. If you require a surgical extraction, only 50% of your bill may be covered, up to the amount of your policy’s annual maximum. Our practice welcomes insurance, and we will assist you as you seek to derive the greatest value possible from your benefits.

Other Options for Making Tooth Extractions Affordable

Tooth Extraction FAQs

Question mark for frequently asked questions about tooth extractions

Getting a tooth extracted can be an intimidating prospect. Dr. Kar and our team understand that, so we have compiled the following list of FAQs to help you be a well-informed patient. When you understand more about the tooth extraction procedure and what to expect from it, you can head into your procedure with confidence. If you have any questions that aren’t addressed here, you are welcome to contact us directly.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost?

The cost of a tooth extraction in Allen depends on whether it is a simple or surgical exaction. The type of sedation used and insurance coverage can also affect your financial obligation. Our team will be sure to give you a cost estimate before you commit to any type of treatment. We’ll also be glad to file insurance claims on your behalf.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Tooth Extraction?

The soft tissue at the site of an extraction heals fairly quickly. With a simple extraction, your mouth may be feeling normal within a few days. For a surgical extraction, any soreness you experience should be greatly diminished within 7 – 10 days. You can facilitate a smooth healing process by avoiding hard and crunchy foods and adhering to excellent oral hygiene habits. You may also take painkillers to ease any discomfort.

How Can I Avoid Dry Socket?

Dry socket is a relatively rare complication wherein the blood clot at the site of an extraction gets dislodged (or fails to form). You can minimize your risk of dry socket by diligently following Dr. Kar’s post-op instructions. For at least a few days, you should not smoke, avoid the use of straws, and consume soft foods.

How Soon Can I Replace an Extracted Tooth?

The timeline for tooth replacement following an extraction varies from patient to patient. In most cases, it is best to wait several weeks or a few months to give the bone at the site of an extraction an opportunity to heal fully. In other instances, such as if a patient is receiving All-on-4 dental implants, extractions and took replacement might happen on the same day.

Are There Any Alternatives to Tooth Extractions?

Dr. Kar views tooth extractions as a last resort. He will make every effort to preserve your natural teeth before he recommends that any of them be removed.
