Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Extraction

Who performs dental extractions?

Dental extractions are usually performed by a general dentist, a dentist with surgical expertise, or an oral surgeon.

Will my insurance cover my tooth extraction?

Based on the reason for your need for the treatment, either your dental or medical or both might cover your tooth extraction. You can call your insurance agency and discuss your insurance benefits; we can help you in doing the same. If you have any other questions, you can always reach out to us.

Will sedation influence the healing rate of dental extractions?

Sedation itself will not increase dental extractions, as the healing process is based on multiple factors. However, sedation can make your treatment more pleasant. Patients tend to get nervous and anxious during dental treatments. Their fear might trigger gestures and responses that could damage them and make it challenging to conduct procedures. These issues can make the patient even more nervous and turns a simple procedure into a complicated one.

Sedating a patient makes them comfortable and more cooperative. This makes our work more accessible, useful and increases the quality of work. Ultimately, it results in a more positive experience for both the patient and the dentist. Hence, we prefer to offer sedation for our patients and increase the success of our treatments.

Do I need to rest after tooth removal?

Restrict the activity on the day of surgery, as vigorous exercise can cause throbbing and increase bleeding. You should call our office immediately if bleeding continues.

Can I be put to sleep when undergoing dental extraction?

Absolutely! Since dental extraction is a surgical procedure, we would recommend you get the tooth removed under sedation. Sedation helps make the process less painful, decreases your anxiety, and increases the treatment's success.

Dr.Adatrow is a highly qualified and Indiana University-trained healthcare professional. You can openly talk about your fears and concerns regarding your dental treatments with him during your first dental visit. Dr. Adatrow will take the utmost care of you and address all your problems.

Providing details about your medications (including supplements), medical history, habits like alcohol, or smoking to your dentist is crucial. All these factors would alter your response to sedation medication. Based on your medical history, medications, preferences (cultural or personal), and treatment needed, your dentist would advise you on appropriate sedation techniques without any judgment.

Can I smoke after dental extraction?

No, we recommend not to. Smoking would hinder the healing process and can cause more pain after surgery. Refrain from smoking as long as possible after dental extraction to ensure the fastest post-operative recovery.
