Frequently Asked Questions – Tooth Extractions Las Vegas

The cost of a tooth extraction in Las Vegas with our dentists varies depending on the type of extraction required and any other care needed, such as antibiotics for an infection. We provide payment plans to help make the costs of dental care more affordable, and we can discuss this when you visit, or over the phone.

The tooth extraction process can seem scary, so many people will put it off. However, it’s best to remove or treat the affected tooth as soon as possible, so problems don’t spread to other teeth. A number of conditions can create a need for tooth extraction, and recognizing the signs can help to prevent other problems. Often, you may have options other than tooth extraction which can save your tooth. Making an emergency appointment sooner rather than later will give you more options and prevent the damage from getting worse.

Pain: If you notice pain around a particular tooth, including consistent throbbing pain as well as stabbing pains, you should make an appointment for emergency dental treatment. You may have other options besides tooth extraction, but this problem won’t get better on its own.

Discolored teeth: Your teeth don’t have to be pure white to be healthy, but if one tooth is noticeably discolored, it’s a bad sign. Decay or infection can cause a tooth to turn dark yellow, brown, or black. If you notice this, make an appointment right away.

Discolored gums: Healthy gums are pink and firm. If your gums are red, brown, or otherwise discolored, they may be infected. This can be a sign that underlying tooth structures, like tooth roots, are damaged.

Cracked or damaged tooth: If a tooth is cracked, a piece has come off, or it feels loose, it’s vulnerable to bacteria. This will also be very painful, as the tooth root will be exposed. The tooth should be treated or extracted as soon as possible to prevent bacteria from creating more damage.

There are two possible ways to do a tooth extraction, and which is right for you will depend on the condition of your tooth.

Simple extraction: When the visible portion of the tooth is strong enough, your dentist can do a simple extraction. You’ll receive anesthetic and the dentist will remove the tooth and roots using forceps and a rocking and pulling motion. This type of extraction is easier, faster, and less expensive. However, this is not always possible for teeth that are visibly decayed, cracked or otherwise damaged.

Surgical extraction: During surgical extraction, the dentist makes an incision in the gums to remove parts of the tooth, roots, or attached bone. One example of this is wisdom teeth removal, but it’s also useful for teeth that are not strong enough to be removed through simple extraction, or those that are damaged below the gum line. This procedure is more complex and more expensive.

Are Talking About

The first person who I spoke with was Juliana. I was on my way to the dentist. I was worried that I was not going to find the location. She assured me that I would find Boston Dental. Juliana gave me some landmarks around there. She was so nice to talk to. Cashmiere was the next person I met. She assisted Dr, Justice. She so comforting. Miss Thelma was the office manager. She helped me understand what my insurance paid. She was very caring and helpful. Dr. Justice was very patient, and explained every he was doing for my procedure. Thank you all for such a Happy Experience Elaine Walsh

First time here and I had a great experience! I was brought back almost immediately, where Carlos, the dental assistant, did the flossing and polishing. Vicki, the dental hygienist, did my cleaning and gave me an informative lesson on why I should be flossing. I told her ahead of time that I had sensitive teeth on the bottom and she was very gentle in that area, unlike some other cleanings that I’ve had. Overall, I was out in about 45 min. Super quick and efficient!

I'm a new patient and have had a very positive first impression. Latisha is a wonderful receptionist who helped with pre-paperwork. Thelma is great with billing, and took the time to do steps of approval for CareCredit, a great plan that allows monthly payments for extensive dental work. Vicki is a stellar hygienist with just the right touch. Carlos and Cashmere were great, and the good Dr. Justice was caring and professional. Thanks to all of you!

I was a patient at Happy Dental and the dentist I was going to was no longer there on Friday, I was referred to Boston Dental which is not close to my house but I had a very good treatment with Dr. Glen Justice and the hygienist. I hope to keep coming to this office and that Dr. Justice will be there on Friday so I can have a great dentist again. Thank You

This place is absolutely fantastic, fun, & clean! I've always wanted to get braces put on but never could because almost every dentist in vegas requires care credit and have money upfront. This place was the only place I could find that allows me to do payment plan out of pocket!!! My monthly visits has been quick. My very first visit here for consultation I had my two young toddlers( 2 & 4) with me and I decided to go ahead and get braces put on. the staff asked if they could take my children and play with them while I was getting braces put in. Right thn and there I immediately knew this was the best place to be! Truly caring and wonderful staff. I will never go anywhere else!!

The staff is so nice and helpful here! I got my rubberbands changed to white by choice and upon seeing myself in the mirror I realized this was not a good choice. I walked back into the office and they took care of me immediately and helped change my rubberbands back to clear within minutes. Amazing work! Would recommend to everyone!

INCREDIBLE DENTIST & STAFF! I called around endlessly asking if any dentist was able to take a walk in and in net work with my insurance last minute! Hallelujah Boston Dental was able to squeeze me in! I had severe pain for two days prior. I was greeted by the front desk ladies who were all smiles, and then Mr. Potter took me in the back to begin examination. He was so fantastic! Dr. Justice came in after to look everything over, he was incredibly patient with me and broke everything down so it was easy to understand and super in depth. They were not forceful in me making decisions, which I’ve had in the past. They both had GREAT senses of humor, which is always a plus! I had to remove my two bottom wisdom teeth, and it was already at the end of their day but they stayed late to get the job done! I have struggled to find a dentist, but I THANKFULLY stumbled upon this office in an emergency and I think it’s safe to say they are my full time dentist!

I have been going to Boston Dental for over 7 years now -- and will never go anywhere else!!! The front desk staff always extends a warm welcome, whether on the phone, to remind you of your upcoming appointment or in person when you arrive. I would most especially like to recognize Leticia and Elsie as primary examples of this type of service and greeting.Stephanie is fantastic in her role as well, and always does a fabulous job in polishing, flossing and preparing my teeth for a good cleaning 🙂 Thank you Stephanie!!!Vicki is the ultimate reason why I am so committed and loyal to this establishment. She is by far --- the best Dental Hygienist I have ever had work on my teeth!!!!!7I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!! Vicki is so detail-oriented, personable, professional and honest. I dont know whether she keeps great notes about your last visit and conversations --- or if she is just blessed with an impeccable memory!!! Either way, whenever I visit (which is approximately every 6 months), she refers to our last conversation like it was just yesterday!!!!! I am amazed by this during every visit and can't stop raving about this Dentist office!!!I give this establishment 10 STARS and highly recommend that if you are not this happy about the dentist office that you currently attend, you must give Boston Dental a try!!!Vicki thank you for being so fabulous and giving me a smile I can be proud of!!!!

Growing up in Washington State, I was never afraid of the dentist. I moved to Las Vegas over 10 years ago and visited a few dentists. I felt they were wreckless and didn't care. I became afraid and so did my husband and kids. We finally went to Boston Dental, where we are getting the best treatment. By far Boston Dental makes my family comfortable. The staff is amazing and it doesn't matter what we go in for we know we will be well treated and cared for. Getting my teeth deep cleaned feels like I am at a spa. My husband who has always been afraid of the dentist was able to go in and get his root canal without having to be put out. My son has gotten his braces and my daughter has no cavities! Just simply the best and right across the street from me. I recommend Boston Dental to all my family and friends!

What Is Involved in the Tooth Extraction Process?

We understand that tooth extraction can seem like a scary process. Our dentists and hygienists providing tooth extraction at our Las Vegas offices take great care to make you feel comfortable, calm and safe, and to make your tooth extraction as painless and stress-free as possible. We’ll provide either local or general anesthesia, and sedatives where necessary to make this process easier.

Step 1: Assessment

First, the dentist will assess the affected tooth or teeth, which may require X-rays. With a clear picture of the tooth’s condition, your dentist will tell you what’s happened to your tooth, and how best to proceed. Your dentist may tell you about the simple extraction, surgical extraction, or root canal procedure, among others.

Step 2: Tooth Extraction

If extraction is the best method, the appropriate anesthesia and sedatives will keep you calm, and dull the pain. Before the tooth extraction, the dentist will clean the area, which will help to keep bacteria away once the tooth is removed. Then, with the anesthesia working and the area cleaned, the dentist will perform the extraction they described to you previously.

Step 3: After-Care

With the extraction completed, your dentist will give you after-care instructions and prescribe any painkillers or antibiotics you may need. Follow these after-care instructions carefully to keep the area clean and free of infection. Once the area begins to heal, you’ll notice the pain from your previously damaged or infected tooth will subside. If the pain continues or you have other issues, your dentist will be available to help.
