During the procedure all the teeth will be evaluated for stability, color, or any other defects that may be present. Extractions may be indicated if the root of the tooth is infected, if the tooth is loose, if the tooth is discolored and appears dead, and if there are fractures in the tooth with pulp cavity exposure.
Extractions are an additional fee added to the base price of a dental prophylaxis. Extraction costs depend on the time it takes to remove a tooth and the number of teeth extracted. Pets with extractions may also need to go home on additional antibiotics or pain medications. To schedule a dental or dental consultation please call our office at 715-268-8131.
