Tooth Removal is a Difficult Choice for the Patient

Having a tooth extraction which have already caused significant discomfort can be difficult decision.

Many people with tooth decay, periodontal disease or trauma to their teeth are some issues that may be too advanced for the tooth to be restored.

The most common indicators of imminent tooth extractions are tooth decay, a failed root canal or a troublesome wisdom teeth extraction.

Tooth extractions can be either urgent or opted for.

In urgent cases, they are carried out by our best dentist in Tijuana, when a patient is in severe pain and the only solution to relieve his or her discomfort is by tooth extraction.

Sometimes, due to trauma, a tooth is loosened and displaced from its normal position in a way that patient becomes unable to close his or her mouth.

  What is a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is usually the last resort for an unsalvageable tooth.

Many patients with tooth decay, periodontal disease or trauma to their teeth are some issues that may be too advanced for the tooth to be restored, and patients suffering from them will frequently have severe dental pain or a toothache.

The most common indicators of imminent tooth extractions are dental decay, a failed root canal or a troublesome wisdom teeth extraction.

Opted-for tooth extractions are usually reserved when a patient can comfortably wait for a few weeks or even months before the tooth is removed.

This is a common scenario for the removal of wisdom teeth which are not causing any discomfort but are prone to experience episodes of infection anytime in future.

What To Expect When Having a Tooth Extracted

Getting rid of teeth which have already caused discomfort.

Can be difficult decision especially when you want your tooth extraction to be as painless as possible.

Thanks to a local anesthetic, we’re able to perform painless tooth extractions.

Sometimes, due to trauma, a tooth is loosened and displaced from its normal position in a way that patient becomes unable to close his or her mouth.

In a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator.

A surgical extraction is a more complex procedure. It is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not come into the mouth yet.

Remember, living with an infected tooth can be injurious to your general and oral health. Don’t wait to the last minute!

What Types of Tooth Extractions We Offer?

There are two types of extractions that we offer, the simple and the surgical extraction.

  • Simple extraction: This is done on a tooth that can easily be seen in the mouth. Once the tooth is made loose, a pair of forceps is used to extract the tooth from its socket.
  • Surgical extraction: This is a more complicated procedure, which occurs in case a tooth has broken off at the gum level.

During the surgery, it is important to note that you should be feeling pressure and not pain.

Here at our dental office, we have advance dental technology to help provide minimally-invasive and pain-free procedures.

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Tooth Extraction?

Surgical extractions are charged for around $400 in the US and Canada.

This procedure can be effected in Mexico in a painless and safe manner, while also saving up to 75% on it.

Using the latest technology in dentistry today, we can assure you will get the most for your time and money.

Even when most dental insurances do not pay or cover the total costs for tooth extraction procedures, some of them may help you pay for a part of it, but that depends on the type of insurance you have.

Difference Between Wisdom Teeth & Tooth Extractions

Many people still do not understand the difference between regular teeth and wisdom teeth. Normal teeth are the set of teeth that grow into place after losing baby teeth.

Wisdom teeth are an extra set of molars that sometimes emerge at the very end of the row of teeth, both sides top and bottom.

However, when it comes to extractions, the normal teeth do not need to be pulled out unless the teeth or tooth can no longer be saved with treatment.

Wisdom teeth removal and extraction is necessary for patients when their jaw and normal teeth are experiencing health issues.

Normal tooth extractions resolve other issues that are disrupting a patient’s dental hygiene.

Tooth extractions are necessary to treat decay that reached deep in the tooth, infection has damaged a large part of the tooth and the bone, or the existing teeth may not have enough room in the mouth.

Unlike normal teeth, wisdom teeth need to be surgically cut out of the patient’s mouth.

The treated areas will be numbed with a local anesthetic to avoid the feeling of pain and discomfort. Our oral surgeon will then make incisions in the gums to remove the hidden teeth and pull out any emerged wisdom teeth.

Tooth Extraction Procedure: The Steps of Pulling Teeth.

Dental extractions are carried out in a step by step procedure, involving different phases of treatment, such as making the diagnosis, carrying out the procedure and then the post-treatment follow-up.

  • Step 1: Our dentist evaluates your overall oral health.
  • Step 2: Clinical examinations follows.
  • Step 3: X-rays will be taken.
  • Step 4: Application of a topical local anesthetic gel.
  • Step 5: Extraction is done of the tooth.

Our mexican dentists will give you a complete set of instructions involving wound care, diet modification, and medicine prescription.

You are usually not allowed to take hot and hard food for a couple of days.

However, intake of liquid and cold diet can be initiated as soon as after thirty minutes of tooth extraction.
