When Is Tooth Extraction the Right Choice? Signs and Alternatives

There are several situations where removing a tooth might be necessary, such as:

Baby teeth that don’t fall out naturally.
Teeth removal for braces or orthodontic care.
Teeth causing pain or suffering from infection.
Removing a damaged or broken tooth.
However, pulling a tooth might not always be the only solution. If you’re having tooth issues, we could potentially offer relief and save the tooth at the same time. Catching the problem early is key.

If you notice any of these symptoms, get in touch:

Intense toothache.
Increased pain when eating or applying pressure.
Discomfort or stiffness in the jaw.
Inflamed gums around specific teeth.
Symptoms of gum issues like unusual color, bleeding, or an unpleasant smell.

Tooth Extraction Journey: A Step-by-Step Guide

Undergoing a tooth extraction is a process usually overseen by a dentist or an oral surgeon and typically involves just one visit to the office. Here’s how we take you through each stage—deciding if removing the tooth is necessary, the actual extraction, and follow-up care:

Evaluating Your Needs

Before taking the step to extract a tooth, our dentists will thoroughly assess your symptoms and talk through your treatment options. Our goal is to find the best way to maintain your dental health.

The Extraction Procedure

Depending on both the dentist’s and the patient’s preference, a local anesthetic will be applied to numb the area around the tooth that’s being removed. If needed, sedation options are also available. Our skilled oral surgeons employ minimally invasive techniques to make the tooth removal as gentle as possible, keeping your comfort and quick recovery in mind.

Aftercare & Recovery

Post-procedure, we provide you with detailed aftercare guidelines, covering:

How to look after your mouth during the healing process.
What you can typically expect during recovery.
Steps to take if you encounter any complications.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost in Barrie? A Comprehensive Guide

The cost of getting a tooth extracted can vary based on several factors. If you have a standard insurance plan, you can expect to pay around $100 to $200+ as your share of the cost. We’re happy to offer you an advance quote to help you determine your out-of-pocket expenses when you submit it to your insurance. Without insurance, the cost generally ranges from $200 to $600+ per tooth.

It’s important to note that we can’t provide an exact quote over the phone. Every patient’s situation is unique, and a proper treatment plan can only be made after a comprehensive oral examination. To give you a general idea, tooth extractions fall into two main categories, each with its own cost considerations:

Basic Tooth Removal
A basic, or ‘simple,’ tooth extraction involves removing a tooth that is easily visible in the mouth. This procedure can usually be performed by a general dentist using local anesthesia. The cost for a simple extraction—especially one that is straightforward and without complications—would be on the lower end of the cost spectrum.

Surgical Tooth Removal
On the other hand, a surgical tooth extraction is a more complex process and is usually carried out by an oral surgeon in a specialized facility. This type of extraction involves removing a tooth that is either not fully erupted or has broken off at the gum line. Given the complexity and the specialized care required, a surgical extraction is generally more expensive.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your dentist will perform a thorough examination and may use X-rays to assess your condition. Alternative treatments like root canals, crowns, or fillings will be considered before opting for extraction.

You’ll typically be given local anesthesia to numb the area, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the extraction. Some discomfort or pressure is normal.

Local anesthesia is most common, but sedation options like oral sedatives or nitrous oxide are also available for anxious patients or more complicated procedures.

Simple extractions are for teeth visible above the gum line and are usually performed by a general dentist. Surgical extractions involve teeth that are broken at the gum line or haven’t erupted fully and are typically performed by an oral surgeon.

Recovery times vary but generally expect to fully heal in 7-10 days. Soft foods are recommended for the first few days.

You’ll be advised to rest, avoid strenuous activities, and follow a soft diet. Painkillers and antibiotics may be prescribed, and you’ll be instructed on how to clean the area.

Soft foods are recommended initially, and you should avoid hot, spicy, or crunchy items that can irritate the extraction site.

Coverage varies by plan. It’s best to consult with your insurance provider for specifics on out-of-pocket costs.

Costs can range from $200 to $600+ per tooth depending on the complexity of the procedure.

It’s generally advised to take it easy for at least 24 hours, though this might vary depending on the complexity of your extraction and your personal comfort.

Signs to watch for include severe pain, prolonged bleeding, swelling, or fever. Contact your dentist immediately if you experience these symptoms.

This depends on the location of the tooth and your personal needs. Options for replacing the tooth can include dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures.

We have been going to Eastview Dental in Barrie since about the time they moved into their location on Grove Street quite a few years ago. All the staff are always friendly, kind and very helpful. We moved to Midland from Barrie 9 years ago and didn’t want to find another dentist. Best choice for us and highly recommend them if you are looking for a great place to go for excellent dental care.

I have been going to Eastview for a long time and everyone is great. Dr. Kauldhar is amazing. He is gentle, always asking if I am ok, very nice and personable. A true professional. Yesterday I had a cleaning with Heather and she was amazing. She explains everything so well, why things need to be done and she is funny and nice to boot. New person on the desk today, Cindy, she was so sweet. Love them both, everyone is amazing.

Walking in, I was greeted by two lovely ladies who were so pleasant & kind. Very welcoming environment. My fiancé had a different Dentist & Hygienist at his visit & he raved about his experience & how comfortable they made him feel which definitely eased my anxiety of going to a new place & feeling judged. My Dental Hygienist Heather was so informative & down to earth. She truly knows her stuff, gets to the point, & of course did a phenomenal job on my cleaning. She made me feel comfortable! The best experience I’ve had. They went through my X-rays which was honestly great, because I got an understanding of everything she was trying to convey about my cleaning which has never been done before in my past experiences. I didn’t feel judged at all which is always nice given that going to the Dentist can be intimidating. She’s hands down amazing at what she does. Mr. C was great too, dropped some knowledge & thoroughly communicated with myself & Heather about my oral health. It didn’t feel rushed, yet at the same time they got to the job done efficiently, given the time frame and expense. Great experience over all. We’ll definitely be back.
