What Does Tooth Extraction Cost?
The cost of tooth extraction will depend mainly on the complexity of your case. Because it is an essential dental treatment, basic insurance plans cover at least a portion of the procedure. If you are uninsured, we offer low-interest financing through CareCredit®, today's most popular third-party medical lender. Depending on your credit score, you may qualify for CareCredit's interest-free financing.
You can count on our team to work directly with your insurance provider to secure the best possible coverage of your expenses.

What to Expect During Tooth Extraction
Your family deserves the very best dental care, and our team of leading dentists is prepared to deliver that during each and every visit.
After your tooth extraction, you can expect swelling and some mild discomfort that is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain medication. In more complex cases, your dentist may prescribe medication. It may take about 10 days for swelling to completely subside. For about three days after your procedure, you should:
- Take care to eat only soft foods.
- Not perform any strenuous activity; raising your heart rate could cause bleeding and increased discomfort.
- Rinse your mouth with antimicrobial mouthwash a few times each day.
- Take care when brushing near the extraction site to avoid disrupting the gums as they heal.
- Take any prescribed pain medication as directed.
If you have wisdom teeth extracted, you must take care to avoid dislodging the resulting blood clot, which can cause a painful condition called dry socket. If you happen to dislodge the blood clot, reach out to our Leesburg, VA, office and we will arrange to meet with you to address the dry socket as soon as possible.
When to Reach Out to Your Dentist During Tooth Extraction Recovery
Our dental practice takes the utmost care in minimizing the risk of infection after treatment, and we will take time to make sure you understand how to care for the extraction site after your procedure. However, it's important to be aware of the signs of infection so that you can reach out to us if necessary. Generally speaking, you should get in touch with us if you experience:
- Swelling that seems to get worse over time
- Bleeding that does not stop
- Pain that increases over time
- A fever
Get in touch with our Leesburg, VA, dental office if you experience any of these symptoms, and we will arrange prompt care to restore your oral health and comfort.
I lost a crown and chipped a tooth on Wednesday night. I arrived at dentist at opening time (8:00am) the next day to hope they can get me in soon to fix this. At 8:01 I’m in the chair being worked on. I definitely have no complaints.View on Google
