Main Causes Of Tooth Extraction Procedure

There is no single reason for tooth extraction. The need usually arises from a combination of causes. Some of the reasons that might lead to radical treatment, such as tooth extraction, are decay, periodontal disease (gum infection), and trauma (like knocking out a front tooth). There are also teeth that just can’t come out naturally by age or other factors and will require an extraction procedure for removal.

The first step in choosing treatment is to evaluate the severity of the dental problem. Your dentist should take an x-ray to see the extent of the problem and how much tooth structure will have to be removed.

FAQ About Dental Implants

The cost of a tooth extraction will vary on several factors including the location, difficulty of the procedure, and whether or not the patient has private health insurance.

Although it seems a little extreme, tooth extractions are very common. Despite this, the average cost of a tooth extraction can be anywhere from $150 to $200 per tooth without extras cover
If you're facing an extraction, you may be wondering how much it will hurt and what the whole process looks like. There's no way to sugarcoat the procedure—it definitely won't feel good. But it doesn't necessarily have to be unbearable.

Here's what you can expect when you're getting a tooth pulled:

Step 1: The dentist will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. If you've ever had a filling or other dental procedure, it may seem similar to that. You'll probably want to have someone drive you home after the procedure—you might feel quite groggy after it's over. Each area of your body (in this case, each tooth) will be numbed separately, so it may take awhile if there are several teeth involved.

Step 2: The dentist might then pull the tooth right out, or may start by breaking the tooth into pieces so it comes out more easily. There are different ways to do this depending on whether or not your tooth has a large root, but either way, you'll probably feel some tugging and pressure. Again, it won't be pleasant.

Step 3: Once the tooth is pulled out, you may feel some discomfort while it extracts the blood and other materials from your gum tissue.
There are many reasons people may need a tooth extraction, and not every procedure is covered by Medicare in Australia. Basically, Medicare will cover the cost of a tooth extraction when it's deemed necessary. For example, if a tooth is severely decayed and causing complications that may affect your overall health, you can claim for the cost of a tooth extraction. Medicare will not cover the cost of a tooth extraction in instances where you simply want to look better or change your smile.
Dental surgery is a major event in any individual's life. Not only are teeth naturally important to our speaking and chewing functions, but they also have a deep cultural and aesthetic significance. It's not surprising that many patients express concern about having their teeth extracted for progress of braces or other dental treatments. Luckily, the healing process is far simpler than it may seem at first glance.

The period of time -- generally about two weeks -- in which the patient has pain and discomfort following extraction will usually not be noticeable after the operation. And in most cases, this period will last no more than about two to four weeks.
