Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is so severely damaged that repairs are not possible, the tooth will need extraction. Tooth extraction involves removing the entire tooth from the socket. This restorative dentistry procedure is known as a simple tooth extraction. We have dentists experienced in Oral Surgery right here in Georgetown TX. We understand that tooth extraction is not a pleasant experience and so we do offer sedation ranging from Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to IV sedation for our nervous patients as well as for teeth that are difficult to remove.

Cost of Extractions:

Extraction can costs from $195-$450/tooth depending on type and condition of tooth. For instance, if you have a wisdom tooth that is completely inside your bone that will cost more money compare to loose front tooth!

Your PPO insurance usually pays portion of this and you are responsible for your copay. We do offer IV sedation if it makes you nervous to get tooth pulled. IV sedation does cost extra.

Post Tooth Extraction Care

  • After a tooth extraction, it is important to relieve pain and minimize the risk of infection. Do not use mouth wash or rinse or spit for several hours after your appointment.
  • When you have a tooth extracted, a clot will form.This clot protects the socket and prevents bacteria from causing infection. If the clot is dislodged before your gums have a chance to heal, you may end up suffering from a condition known as dry socket.
  • Smokers are more prone to dry socket, so you should try to avoid smoking at all until the clot has time to settle.
  • After several hours have passed, you may rinse with a salt water solution.
  • If you have a badly decayed or damaged tooth, the team at Westinghouse Dental will always attempt to save the tooth. Should you require a tooth extraction, we are in a position to provide you with the highest level of care both during and after your procedure. We also provide IV sedation to our patient who are nervous about tooth extraction or simply for difficult teeth to make it easy on our patients. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

  • This place is amazing!!! I have always had a lot of anxiety going to the dentist due to past experiences, but after going here I can say my anxiety has lessened! Courtney was so gentle and caring while cleaning my teeth! I barely felt it and had no discomfort after! I will definitely be seeing her again in 6 months! Dr Wicheta explained everything step by step that I needed to take care of and put my fears at ease! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could!!!

  • We were visiting from out of town and my son had a dental emergency. Dr. Wicheta and his staff were kind enough to see us that afternoon. Everyone was extremely comforting and helped calm the situation. My son received excellent medical care and I am very grateful for this Doctor and his team. I recommend Westinghouse Dental because they care about their patients and provide high quality service.

  • It’s rare to receive a thorough and sincere visit to medical professionals, but I have found the anomaly with this office. The office was pristine and clean. The technology they used did not feel like your average dentist office. Quick appointment response time for confirmation and multiple ways to remind a busy person. I was greeted warmly when I entered the office. My “assistant” was/is phenomenal. The dentist was emotionally intelligent and did not go further than what I was comfortable with. A pleasant experience is almost too simple of a phrase to describe what my experience was. It is couture to patients who don’t feel pushed to do everything all at once, happy employees which means they also feel valued, and their patience are what makes them unique. Finally thank you Starla for the smiles and laughs, Dr. Wichita for your gentleness, the assistant who provided technical assistance, and to my ROCKSTAR dental assistant, she was a peaceful advocate for feeling comfort and providing a beautiful experience from the time I was called back for my exam until my final departure. Then she double downed and did a follow up call the following day. I found a gem and I am here to stay!
