But not to worry; with a combination of local anesthetic and sedation dentistry, you’ll feel practically nothing during the treatment, and we’ll begin the process of helping you find a suitable replacement right away. Call us today to learn more about our straightforward, stress-free approach to tooth extractions in Copperas Cove, TX.
Tooth extraction is a last resort that is only recommended in specific situations, such as the following:
During a simple extraction, the tooth is loosened with an instrument called an elevator. We can then gently rock it back and forth with forceps until it comes out. In cases where a surgical approach is required, some gum and bone tissue will have to be removed, and the tooth itself may need to be divided in order to be removed safely. During either type of extraction, your mouth is numbed so that you won’t experience discomfort. (You can expect soreness afterwards, but it can be controlled through medication and will wear off in time.)
The cost of tooth extractions depends on a few factors. During your consultation, we will be able to discuss specific numbers. Most patients can afford their tooth extractions without too much stress. We make the financial aspect of your care even easier by offering convenient payment options. For example, we are happy to accept most types of dental insurance. We also work with CareCredit to provide low-interest payment plans.
