Common Reasons for Getting a Tooth Extracted

Having the perfect smile is one of the most eye-catching features a person can have. Having your teeth recontoured is an effective way to achieve this. Teeth recontouring, also known as tooth reshaping, is a simple procedure where a dentist uses their specialized tools to remove small amounts of enamel from teeth in order to improve the overall aesthetic of your smile. Here are some benefits of getting your teeth recontoured:

Severe decay

Extractions are necessary if a tooth is severely decayed as the damage may be too extensive to be treated with a filling or a root canal.

Impacted teeth

Teeth that are impacted, meaning they have not fully emerged from the gums, will often require extraction.

Infection or Abscess

If an infection has spread into the surrounding tissue and bone of a tooth, it is usually necessary to extract it in order to prevent further spread of infection.

Failed Root Canal

If a root canal fails, extracting the tooth may be the best option.

Orthodontic corrections

In order to make room in the mouth for orthodontic corrections such as braces, it may be necessary to extract certain teeth.


If there is not enough space in the mouth for all of the teeth, some may need to be removed in order to avoid overcrowding and other problems like crooked teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Because wisdom teeth often are impacted and cause issues such as pain or crowding, they are commonly extracted.

Gum Disease

Periodontal disease can destroy supporting gum tissue and bone around a tooth which could necessitate its extraction.

What to Expect

Tooth extraction is a procedure that involves removing a tooth from the mouth. A local anesthetic is given to numb the area and reduce pain or discomfort. The dentist will use either forceps or an elevator to loosen and extract the tooth from its socket. In some cases multiple instruments may be used if the tooth is impacted. Afterward, gauze may be applied over the extraction site to control bleeding and small sutures may be placed as needed. The time it takes for completion can range from 10-45 minutes depending on complexity. Patients may experience swelling, soreness, and slight discomfort at the extraction site, which should subside within a few days with proper recovery instructions provided by their dentist.


Frequently Ask Questions

Our patients have lots of questions about tooth extractions in Paradise Valley.  Take a look at our FAQ or send us a message & we will get you an answer as soon as we can.

A tooth extraction is a procedure where a tooth is removed from the socket in the bone. It can be done for a variety of reasons, including damage to the tooth, infection, overcrowding of teeth, or to make room for orthodontic treatment. The procedure may also involve removal of any surrounding tissue and/or bone that has been affected by decay or infection.

There are many reasons why someone may need a tooth extraction. These include damage to the tooth caused by decay, fracture or trauma; an overcrowded mouth; gum disease; wisdom teeth that are impacted; orthodontic needs such as making room for braces; and abscesses due to infection.

The healing process after a tooth extraction varies from person to person, but you can expect some level of discomfort and swelling for a few days afterwards. During this time, it’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions and take any prescribed medications as directed. Healing usually takes around 10 days, depending on how complicated the procedure was and how well you follow post-operative instructions. You may also experience some minor bleeding in the first 24 hours.

Following your dental visit, it’s important to rest for the remainder of the day and keep your head elevated when lying down. Avoid anything strenuous, such as exercise, for at least 24 hours afterwards and try not to touch or disturb the area with your tongue or fingers. Additionally, try not to consume any foods that are too hot, cold, or spicy immediately following the procedure in order to avoid irritating the healing site. Your dentist will likely provide you with specific instructions regarding diet restrictions for several days following the procedure and when it’s safe to resume brushing and flossing as normal again.

As with any surgical procedure there are potential risks associated with having a tooth extracted including bleeding, swelling and pain in the area, dry socket development (a condition where bone become exposed due to lack of blood clot formation), nerve damage (which could cause numbness), jaw fracture (although this is very rare), or infection. It’s important that your dentist has discussed all possible complications prior to performing any extractions so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not this procedure is right for you at this time. 

Costs vary depending on the complexity of the procedure. Generally speaking, simple extractions are less expensive than more complex extractions such as those involving third molars (wisdom teeth). Insurance coverage also plays an important role in determining costs so be sure review your policy carefully before deciding on if an extraction is right for you at this time.

Yes, local anesthesia will typically be used during dental extractions which numbs only the mouth area where work is being done. Nitrous oxide and/or sedation medications can also be used to make the experience easier.
