Gentle Tooth Extraction for Better Oral Health

Tooth extraction may be necessary when a tooth is crowded, has deep cavities, is infected, or has damage that is unlikely to be restored. At Mary River Dental, we use specific tools and techniques to take out the teeth from their sockets carefully.

Alleviate dental pain and improve quality of life.

A severely damaged or abscessed tooth can be distracting and cause excruciating discomfort, making it hard to eat. But extracted teeth in Maryborough may provide relief and allow you to focus on your daily tasks.

Reduce harmful bacteria in the mouth.

Tooth decay contains bacteria that can continue to attack the teeth and other oral structures when combined with saliva and acid. Removing the problematic teeth may reduce the risk of infection spreading in the mouth and nearby areas.

Promote optimal dental health.

While saving natural teeth is one major goal in dentistry, in some cases, extracted teeth are a better way to keep teeth and gums in good condition.

Prevent further tooth loss and keep teeth healthy.

While dental extraction means losing one or a few damaged teeth, this dental service is widely used to prevent the spreading of decay and save many remaining healthy teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Tooth Extractions

We understand that the thought of having a tooth extracted can be daunting. However, we want you to know that
we are here to guide you through every step of the process. We will answer any questions you may have.

Recovery from a tooth extraction can vary and depends on the individual case. On average, most people can return to their routine tasks after 48 to 72 hours. However, the healing period of tooth sockets or soft tissues can take several weeks (three to four weeks). It’s crucial to avoid strenuous activities during this time to prevent dislodging the blood clot in the extraction area.

Your dentist will administer a type of anaesthesia to you before the extraction. You may feel a slight “prick” from the needle, but you can expect not to feel sensation or pain once the process begins. It’s common to feel some pressure as your dentist makes their way to access and extract your tooth.

Here’s a list of dos and don’ts after getting teeth extracted:

Dos

  • Take a full rest.
    As we’ve discussed earlier, resting after 48 to 72 hours is particularly important.

  • Keep your body hydrated.
    Drink plenty of water to reduce bacteria in your mouth and avoid dehydration which can lead to a dry mouth.

  • Let the wound clot.
    Unless your dentist says otherwise, gently bite on a clean gauze pad to apply pressure and slow the bleeding. It can be a way to promote clotting.

  • Apply ice packs. Putting a cold pack on the side of your face where you had extracted teeth may reduce swelling.

Don’ts

  • Do not smoke.
    Cigarettes, tobacco, or any products containing nicotine are prohibited as the chemical can harm the area and delay healing.

  • Do not drink from a straw.
    When you suck the air from the straw, it creates a suction that can irritate the blood clot and lead to a dry socket.

  • Do not poke the socket. Doing so may take longer to heal, bleed more, and also cause dry sockets.

The cost will depend on the difficulty of the procedure. The average cost of a simple tooth extraction may be between $200 and $270 per tooth. If the tooth requires oral surgery and division, the price can range between $370 and $480.

 In contrast, a simple wisdom tooth extraction can start from $270 to $450 per tooth. These are only sample cost estimates for dental extraction in Maryborough and nearby areas. You can get a more specific quote from your dentist at Mary River Dental during the consultation.
