$100-$1000 : The cost of an extraction cannot really be determined until you get an xray of the tooth. The cost will then be determined upon how hard it will be to remove the tooth.

Can you let me know how many shots do you get when you get a tooth pulled?

Can you let me know how many shots do you get when you get a tooth pulled?

Varies by person: Some patients respond very well to anesthetic, others need more. Some teeth (i.e. Long roots) might require a wider area to be numb, while others might be "flappin' in the breeze, " and come out with gauze - so it really depends on your case.

How long do I have to waite after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front

How long do I have to waite  after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front

2d: No hot/spicy: When you eat after an extraction food will inevitably get into the socket where a blood clot is protecting the bone. Hot, or spicy foods may irritate the area to the degree that the clot may be lost resulting in a very painful "dry socket" that will take 3x longer to heal. More important is not to rinse vigorously or brush the area for 2 days until the clot stabilizes. If sutures: nothing sharp. ...Read more

I had one of my bottom lower tooth pulled two days ago and it still very painful. Is this normal and how much longer will it hurt?

I had one of my bottom lower tooth pulled two days ago and it still very painful. Is this normal and how much longer will it hurt?

Depends: If the tooth was impacted and required an incision and bone removal the pain may take up to a week to resolve entirely. This also depends on the doctor and his skill level. If the pain gets worse at the 3-5 day point and radiates, you may have a dry socket. I usually give my patients pain meds and steroids. The steroids keep the pain to a minimum by decreasing the initial inflammation. ...Read more
