Put a Stop to Your Dental Pain

It’s not fun to think about having a tooth removed. Whenever possible, we will do everything we can to save your tooth. Before deciding upon extracting a damaged or diseased tooth, Dr. Lennon will determine if it can be treated with procedures like a root canal or other restoration option. If the removal is necessary, he will make sure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. With his decades of experience saving and restoring smiles, you can trust your tooth problems in his hands.

After the removal, it’s time for the healing process to begin. You will receive instructions on how to best care for your extraction site, and which foods you should eat or avoid until you’ve recovered.

When you’ve healed, we will review some of your options to replace your missing tooth. Our options include:

  • Dental Bridge – A bridge will fill the gap in your teeth with a replacement tooth that anchors to the teeth on either side. It will function naturally and blend in with your smile.
  • Dental Implant –This option will involve placing a titanium post inside of your jaw that will act like an artificial tooth root where a tooth is missing. Dr. Lennon will place a crown that is supported by the implant. This will be durable and function like a natural tooth, so you can bite and chew normally.

Your tooth extraction doesn’t have to be uncomfortable, and what matters most is having your beautiful smile functioning normally again. For tooth extractions in Mathews, call 804-455-8263.

Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

How much does a tooth removal cost?

It is difficult to put a price on this service since each patient is different with unique needs. Other factors that come into play include the location of the tooth, its condition, and how many teeth need to be removed. We’ll be happy to examine your mouth when you come in for your initial consultation and X-rays. Then we can give you a good idea of the cost for your procedure.

How long does it take a tooth removal to heal?

For most types of extractions, you can expect the site to heal within seven to 10 days. You actually play a role in how quickly you heal, however. We’ll give you complete aftercare instructions for you to follow. The closer you stick to these guidelines, the quicker and more comfortable your healing period will be.

When is tooth removal necessary?

It is always important to save a natural tooth whenever possible, which is why an extraction is often a last resort at our office. A tooth extraction is reserved for times when the damage, decay, or infection is too extensive to repair, to prevent potential complications with your dental health, to make room for tooth replacements, or to address overcrowding in preparation for future orthodontic treatment.
