Welcome to Tuesday Tooth Talk with Dr. Kuiper! Today, we are going to discuss tooth extractions. Some patients have questions about the recovery time and cost of an extraction. Here is what Dr. Kuiper has to say!
As much as we, as dental professionals, want to help you save your teeth, there are times when teeth are past the point that they are able to be saved. At Sioux Center Dental, we remove all sorts of teeth, including some wisdom teeth. Each tooth is different which is why we talk to each patient about what’s going on and discuss possible risks, complications, and benefits for removing the tooth. We create a very specific treatment plan designed for that tooth. Every tooth has between one and five roots. Over the phone, we are unable to tell how many roots there are and what the roots look like. This is why it’s so difficult to give an estimate over the phone for an extraction!
If you have questions about what could be happening with your teeth, we would love to hear from you! We could set up an appointment to talk about what we see happening and how we could best serve you. We always go over post operative instructions with you and make sure that you feel good about the treatment plan that we decide upon together. Most of the time, within about a day or two, regardless of how many teeth you have taken out, patients feel just about back to normal.
