Patients that do not regularly visit a Dentist may run into issues with a loose or painful tooth, unexpectedly. When you need immediate relief your first question should be "who provides tooth extraction near me?". Finding an emergency dental clinic that can relieve pain immediately is of critical importance. Let's look at some brief considerations when searching for "tooth extraction near me".
If you type in "tooth extraction near me" on Bing or Google, you will likely generate a list of results including General or Family Dentists in Kitchener as well as Oral Surgeons in Kitchener. Oral Surgeons typically operate on a referral basis. They will see you for a consult and medical history workup prior to booking an extraction appointment at a later date. A Family or Emergency Dentist in Kitchener may be able to see you sooner and remove your tooth sooner. Many general dental offices refer extractions to Oral Surgeons. Accordingly, you will want to ask if they provide tooth extraction services "in-house". A General Dentist who can see you right away for treatment is your best bet for immediate pain relief.
If anxiety or phobia has kept you away from the Dentist's office for some time, you may be interested in sedation dentistry. Whether it's nitrous oxide ("laughing gas") or a mild oral sedative like Ativan, most Dentists in Kitchener can offer you options to increase your comfort level during treatment. Inquire about sedation options and related costs once you find a dental office in Kitchener that can provide necessary treatment.
Tooth extractions fall into a few categories. Firstly, there are "simple" extractions which involve the removal of an erupted tooth without need for surgical techniques. Secondly, there are "complicated" extractions where a tooth is broken down and requires surgical techniques for access and removal. Thirdly, there is extraction of impacted teeth. This would include wisdom teeth which can be underneath gum tissue.
Generally, "simple" extractions cost about $150 plus any emergency examination fees and x-ray costs. A "complicated" extraction costs about $250. Lastly, removal of wisdom teeth can cost anywhere between $300 and $500 depending on procedural difficulty.
