Tooth Extraction by Toronto’s Expert Dr. Aksana Tkachenko
There are many reasons that an individual may require a tooth to be extracted.
For instance, if a tooth has been severely damaged and cannot be repaired, or the individual is suffering from advanced stages of gum periodontal disease, the tooth may need to be removed.
Tooth extraction is typically a last resort, and before extraction is done, every effort will be made to keep the natural tooth healthy and alive.
However, in many extreme cases, such as those mentioned above, extraction becomes necessary to preserve the patient’s overall oral health.
With that in mind, simple tooth extractions are among the most common surgical procedures performed in our office.

What To Expect During A Tooth Extraction
Although having a tooth extracted may seem like a scary procedure, your dentist will do everything in their power to ensure that you’re safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
Before the procedure begins, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic, which will numb the face and mouth area where the extraction will take place.
In some cases, your dentist may also administer a sedative to ensure that you won’t feel any pain, discomfort, or anxiety throughout the procedure.
While you may feel slight pressure, having a tooth extracted should never be painful.
Due to the local anesthetic, your face and mouth will likely remain numb for a few hours after your tooth has been extracted. However, you’ll typically be sent home to recover without direct supervision from your dentist.
- Take painkillers or anti-inflammatories only as prescribed.
- Apply a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling
- Limit physical exertion for 24 to 48 hours.
- Avoid sucking through a straw or smoking, which may dislodge the blood clot that is currently forming where your tooth once was.
- Rinse with a warm saltwater solution
- Do not smoke
- Eat only soft food
- Continue brushing while avoiding the extraction site.
Should you experience any pain, discomfort, or the extraction site bleeds profusely, you must contact your dentist immediately. Always remember that we’re only a quick phone call away!
Tooth Removal/Tooth Extraction Surgery FAQ
As we’ve already mentioned, tooth extraction is typically a last resort. In other words, when an individual has severe tooth decay, or when a tooth is chipped, cracked, or damaged, your dentist will first do their best to repair the tooth via bonding, filling, a root canal, or crown repair.
However, when a tooth is damaged beyond repair or has a severe infection affecting the gums, the only solution is to remove the tooth.
Additionally, severe dental decay, periodontal disease, organ transplants, certain orthodontic treatments, impacted wisdom teeth, as well as cancer treatments are also situations that may require one or more teeth to be removed.
As with most dental procedures, the cost will vary depending on the complexity of your given situation.
But with that said, most basic extractions cost between $150 to $160 per tooth.
After your procedure, as the anesthetic slowly wears off, the extraction site may feel painful or tender, which is precisely why most dentists will prescribe a mild pain killer or anti-inflammatory to help you through your recovery.
However, within 24 to 48 hours, most of your pain and swelling should subside, and you’ll be able to resume most of your normal activities.
If you’re still experiencing intense pain or bleeding, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Although it varies from one person to another, most wisdom teeth start to surface between 16 and 25 years of age. While most individuals will develop a total of 4 wisdom teeth, others may only develop 1 or 2, or, in rare cases, none at all.
With that said, wisdom teeth are typically extracted when they are causing crowding of the other teeth or when they are severely impacted, which means that they are trapped either partially or fully below the gums.
