At Innova Family Dental, we always do our best to restore your smile and preserve your natural teeth. However, there are some cases where it may be preferable to extract your tooth, such as when a wisdom tooth is erupting improperly, or if an infected tooth can’t be saved with a root canal.
We offer the very best wisdom teeth extractions near Bolingbrook, Romeoville, Naperville, and Plainfield because we use the latest techniques and sedation to keep you feeling safe and comfortable throughout the extraction process.
Who Needs Wisdom Tooth Removal?
The most common reason for tooth extractions is problematic wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 17-25. Most of us do not have room for them to erupt properly, which can cause them to become impacted (not fully erupted). They may also grow sideways and cause other complications that can damage your surrounding teeth or increase your risk of a dental abscess (infection). For these reasons, most patients choose to have their wisdom teeth extracted.
Tooth extractions may also be required to remove a tooth that has been damaged by extensive tooth decay, gum disease, or an oral injury. If the tooth cannot be saved using traditional dentistry techniques, it can be extracted and replaced with a partial denture or dental bridge.
Comfortable & Gentle Tooth Extractions
We use numbing and sedation here at our Bolingbrook dentist office to ensure that you do not feel any pain and discomfort during the tooth extraction process and to keep you feeling safe and calm. Once your mouth is numb and you have been sedated, Dr. Kandimalla will use specialized dental tools to loosen your tooth in the socket. Once it’s loose, the tooth will be removed and the area will be disinfected and sutured shut. This usually takes only 5 minutes per tooth.
It’s important to take the appropriate care precautions to keep the socket healthy after recovering. This will ensure you avoid complications like dry socket. Dr. Kandimalla will provide you with a comprehensive set of aftercare instructions to ensure that you follow them to keep your mouth healthy as you heal.
Extracting Impacted Wisdom Teeth
If you have an impacted (not fully erupted) wisdom tooth, the extraction procedure is slightly different. After your mouth is numbed, Dr. Kandimalla will begin by making an incision into your gum line near the tooth. Then, the tooth will be removed through this incision. Once the entire tooth has been removed, the area will be sutured shut.
How Much Does Wisdom Tooth Removal Cost?
Your out-of-pocket wisdom tooth extraction costs will depend on the terms of your dental insurance. To make it easy for you, Innova Family Dental is in-network with many major dental insurance carriers and accept most dental insurance plans.
If you do not have dental insurance, join the Innova Gold Plan. This dental discount plan offers generous discounts on many treatments and procedures. If you need additional help financing your treatment, we offer monthly payment plans, too!
