I have always had bad anxiety when it comes to dental work/going to the dentist. Dr Gillette and his staff made me feel so comfortable and welcome. They eased my concerns and helped me to understand every step in my treatment. The staff is always so chipper and happy to see every one of their patients. I never felt rushed or insecure about the work that I was getting done. I am so happy to have found Dr Gillette! I recommend this office to everyone, children and adults alike.

Worried About Discomfort? Sedation Is Available

It may surprise you to hear that tooth extraction is virtually painless. In fact, this treatment can do more to relieve discomfort than cause it. Many patients at our Arvada office comfortably undergo the procedure with just local anesthesia. However, we understand that you may need a little extra help feeling comfortable during your appointment.

Sedation dentistry can enhance your experience by inducing a state of deep relaxation that makes treatment fly by without worry. You can choose from nitrous oxide, oral conscious, or IV sedation at our practice.

The Tooth Extraction Timeline

Tooth extraction is a simple oral surgery that can be performed with just local anesthesia. However, you can also receive sedation to ensure your comfort.

Free Consultation

During your first visit to our office in Arvada, Dr. Gillette will conduct a thorough dental health examination and discuss your treatment options with you.

If he determines that tooth extraction is the best choice to meet your needs, we can move ahead with scheduling the procedure.

Numbing the Treatment Area

The extraction site will be thoroughly numbed with local anesthesia, but we can also administer sedation if you wish.

Extracting the Tooth

Your dentist will gently maneuver the tooth out of the socket. For complex cases like impactions, he may need to divide the tooth into smaller pieces first.

Dressing the Extraction Site

Once your tooth has been removed, your dentist will apply gauze to the socket. This will guard the site as a blood clot forms to protect the underlying bone while you heal.

How Much Does Tooth Extraction Cost?

Tooth extraction generally costs between $279 and $513 at Ward Road Dental. Your final costs may vary depending on the complexity of your case and whether you received sedation during the procedure. 

Thankfully, your dental insurance provider will likely help cover the cost of your tooth extraction. We accept all major dental insurance plans, as well as financing through CareCredit®, which offers loans with little or no interest and flexible payment plans to keep your treatment affordable.

What an amazing change! Imagine getting the care you actually NEED instead of being told you need some expensive and time sucking proceedure. I am a health care provider, I value good trustworthy care above all else. At Ward Road Dental I was not only given great care I was "cared about." I mattered!

Just went to Ward Road Dental. I give myself 2 stars based on my extreme fear of the dentist and for being a difficult patient. They, however, get FIVE stars! They couldn't have been more kind, caring, and accommodating! (Special thanks to Trena!) If you're a chicken like I am (and even if you're not), I highly recommend Ward Road Dental! I'm not even nervous about my next appointment!
