Tooth Extractions
Asheboro, NC


An image of an extracted tooth and tools at Randolph Center for Dental Excellence in Asheboro, NCApart from the common wisdom teeth removal, there are reasons that other teeth would need to be extracted. Some of these reasons could be tooth decay, infection, or crowding. It may also be necessary to pull some teeth before getting braces. Randolph Center for Dental Excellence has oral surgeons that are extremely trained and experienced in tooth extractions.

Why are Teeth Removed?



Your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if you are experiencing excessive tooth decay, constant infections, or crowding of your teeth. If you are in the process of getting braces, our dentist might recommend getting one or two teeth removed to make enough room for your other teeth as they make their way into their proper positions.

Another reason for tooth extraction is if you are a patient who might be receiving chemotherapy or are receiving an organ transplant. You would need to have all of your teeth with problems removed before the procedure to keep your mouth healthy.

Tooth extractions are most commonly performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon. The process is a pretty quick outpatient procedure with the option of local, general, or IV anesthesia. If the tooth being removed is visible, extraction will be a very common procedure. If the tooth is broken, impacted, or below the surface, a more involved procedure will need to take place.

Cost of an Extraction



The price of a tooth extraction can range widely based on whether the tooth is impacted or not.
The cost can also vary depending on if it is a simple tooth extraction of a tooth that is not impacted, how much anesthesia you require, or if it is an impacted tooth that requires oral surgery for removal.

Preparation



Before scheduling a tooth extraction, our dentist will take x-rays of the tooth. You will need to inform the dentist of any medications you take, as this can affect the type of anesthesia you can have.

If you are having another scheduled procedure that will require an IV drug called bisphosphonate, you will need to let your doctor know so the extraction can happen before that procedure. This will be in order to prevent any issues with your jawbone.

You will also need to make sure our dentist is aware of any health conditions like diabetes, liver disease, thyroid disease, hypertension, or any other health condition. We will want to be positive that your conditions are stable and treated before you have your dental procedure.

Recovery



The recovery period after an extraction is usually only a few days. If you are experiencing pain that won’t go away or signs of an infection, make sure to call the dentist as soon as possible. Also contact us if you are experiencing bleeding that lasts for more than 12 hours, severe fever or chills (this signals an infection), nausea or vomiting, cough, swelling or redness, shortness of breath, or chest pain, but these are rare occurrences after having a tooth pulled.
