  • What causes the need for tooth extraction?

    Several conditions might necessitate a tooth extraction:

    • Severe Decay: If a tooth is too decayed to repair with a filling or crown.
    • Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease can lead to tooth loosening.
    • Injury: Broken teeth that cannot be repaired.
    • Overcrowding: Removing teeth can help align the remaining teeth properly.
    • Impacted Teeth: Common with wisdom teeth that do not emerge properly from the gums.
  • How much does a tooth extraction cost?

    The cost of a tooth extraction at Willow Dental varies depending on the case’s complexity.

    • Simple extraction: $248
    • Surgical extraction: $375

    We offer various financing options to help manage these costs, including CareCredit or Sunbit and our in-house dental savings plan, which can provide discounts and manageable payment plans.

  • How do I prevent dry socket after tooth extraction?

    Dry socket is a painful condition that can occur when the blood clot at the site of an extraction is dislodged. To prevent this:

    • Avoid sucking motions, such as using a straw, for the first few days.
    • Do not smoke or use tobacco products, as these can inhibit healing.
    • Follow a soft food diet, such as mashed potatoes or applesauce, and gradually reintroduce solid foods as healing progresses.
    • Practice gentle oral hygiene, avoid the extraction site during brushing, and use saline rinses after the first 24 hours.
