Extractions

At OB Dental, we emphasize the importance of regular dental examinations to detect and address issues. Unfortunately, sometimes tooth extraction is necessary to restore. At OB Dental, we offer two types of tooth extraction procedures: routine and surgical.

Routine & Surgical Extractions

Routine extractions are typically used for teeth that are visible and easy to remove, while surgical extractions are used for teeth that are impacted or otherwise difficult to access.

The cost of an extraction can vary depending on the type of extraction required and the complexity of the procedure. Routine extractions typically cost between €80 and €120, while surgical extractions cost between €150 and €200, depending on the complexity of the procedure.

OB Dental are committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience for every patient. We use the latest tools and procedures to ensure that your extraction is a smooth and pain-free experience.

What Our Clients Say About OB Dental?

I had a dental emergency and my own practice couldn't fit me in. Jacqueline saw me at very short notice and could not have been nicer or more pleasant to deal with. Would absolutely recommend and will be switching dentists going forward

Kate

I spotted Dr. Jacqueline O'Brien advertising on The Clare Echo, booked an appointment which I had within days and I can safely say I will be recommending Jacqueline to my own friends and family in future. She was very kind and patient throughout my appointment and made me feel extremely comfortable. A super dentist and one I'lI see using for many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is getting a tooth extracted painful?

We take all available precautions to ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure. We use a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. This ensures that you do not feel pain during the procedure. You will feel the sensation of pushing or pressure as the tooth is loosened.

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

The recovery time can vary depending on the type of extraction and your individual healing process. In general, you will need to take some pain-relief for the first week after an extraction. In some instances, a dry socket may develop and this can be quite painful for 2 weeks following the extraction. If this occurs, you will need to return to have the area assessed by the dentist. You will be advised by the dentist of the instructions to follow once you have had the dental extraction. It is important that you follow this advice to allow the area to heal properly.

What can I eat after a tooth extraction?

We typically recommend sticking to soft, tepid foods and eating on the opposite side of your mouth. It is best to avoid any foods or drinks that are very hot or cold on the day that you have had a tooth removed.

How much does a tooth extraction cost?

The cost of a tooth extraction can vary depending on the type of extraction and the complexity of the procedure. Our team provide transparent pricing information which is available on the Dental fees page.

Will I need a replacement tooth after an extraction?

Depending on the location and function of the extracted tooth, OB Dental may recommend a replacement tooth. We can discuss this with you.

How can I manage pain or discomfort after an extraction

We may recommend over-the-counter pain relief or prescription medications to manage pain or discomfort after a tooth extraction.

Can I go back to work or school after an extraction?

You may need to take a day or two off from work or school to rest, depending on the type of extraction and your individual healing process. Our team can provide guidance on when it is safe to resume normal activities.
