Is Tooth Extraction Covered By Insurance?
Yes, tooth extraction for wisdom teeth, damaged teeth, and decayed teeth is eligible for coverage from dental insurance. That's because it's essential for your health and oral function. The amount it covers will depend on your plan and provider.
Insurance can also help with the cost of dental crowns or bridges, as well. It will not assist with dental implants or sedation — but the many benefits of both make them good investments in your smile.
The Tooth Extraction Process From Start to Finish
The Recovery Process
An antibiotic prescription can be issued to prevent infection during your recovery. You'll also need to be mindful of your healing by consuming only soft, room-temperature foods at first.
Finally, you need to know that a blood clot should form over your extraction site, protecting it and allowing it to heal. If this blood clot is dislodged too soon, it can result in a condition called dry socket. Dry socket is serious, so reach out to our dentists if you notice any exposure.
What Happens After Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom Tooth Healing
Though implants are considered the most comprehensive form of tooth restoration, some patients still prefer traditional restorations. Depending on your case, we may be able to replace a single extracted tooth with a dental bridge. It will be anchored by crowns on your natural teeth.
For a solution that improves stability and bone health, Dr. Stofer can place a dental implant in your jaw and gum. After the area has healed, he can top the implant with a custom dental restoration to fully replace your tooth.
