Tooth Extraction Virginia Beach, VA
Affordable Tooth Extraction when a Tooth Cannot Be Saved
At our dental practice, we do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth; however, sometimes it is not the best course of action. A tooth that is badly decayed or abscessed requires removal or the decay and infection can spread throughout your mouth. The tooth cannot be saved so it is best to perform a Virginia Beach emergency tooth extraction.
After-Care for Regular & Virginia Beach Emergency Tooth Extraction
We give you local anesthetic when removing teeth, whether it’s an emergency or during scheduled surgery in preparation for dentures. Depending on your circumstances, the wound may require stitches. Your mouth requires special care after you have had a tooth pulled. Use an ice pack on your face in the area where the tooth was extracted to help with swelling. For pain, our dentist may prescribe medication. Rinsing your mouth with saltwater helps with pain and swelling, and promotes healing. Eat soft foods and avoid strenuous activity. After your mouth heals, our dentist will replace that missing tooth or teeth with a bridge or denture.
Emergency Tooth Extraction with No Insurance
You were not planning for emergency tooth extraction. No insurance coverage is available to you. That is why we offer our patients CareCredit financing. Our dental practice pays fees to this health insurance credit card company for making loans available to our patients for situations such as this.
