There are a few reasons why a dentist may refuse to remove a healthy tooth. If the tooth is healthy and not causing any pain or problems, the dentist may choose to leave it in place. Additionally, if the tooth is embedded in the gums, the dentist may need to remove a large portion of the gums in order to remove the tooth. If the tooth is not healthy or is causing pain or problems, the dentist may choose to remove it.

Can a dentist remove a healthy tooth if I ask them to?
A healthy tooth can be safely removed by a dentist if the tooth is diseased, fractured, or otherwise in need of treatment. Before any teeth are removed, a biopsy must be taken to determine if the tooth is healthy or diseased. If the tooth is healthy, the dentist will then decide if the tooth needs to be removed.
I’ve been asked to pull healthy teeth before on a number of occasions. I always say no.
That does not mean there is not a dentist out there who would pull a healthy tooth. I’m just not that dentist.
I had a patient in the Arctic who wanted a perfectly good tooth extracted. I could not find anything clinical or radiographically so I dismissed her.
I asked my dental assistant who was from the community if she knew anything about this teenaged girl.
She said that this girl did not have a boyfriend but wanted to look like she did hence she wanted an extraction.
Now there are valid reasons why a perfectly good tooth may be extracted but one of the reasons is not “just because the patient asked for it”.
Our code of conduct tell us we should leave the patient better off than when they came in. Pulling a healthy tooth for no good reason goes against that code of conduct.
”Can a dentist remove healthy teeth?”
Dentists and oral surgeons are both able to perform tooth extractions, but dentists are not qualified to extract teeth in all types of circumstances.
There is no one answer to this question as it depends on the individual’s oral health and dental history. In general, however, most dentists will not try to remove healthy teeth unless they are in serious need of extraction. If you are concerned about your oral health, it is best to see a dentist regularly for checkups and to discuss any dental concerns you may have.
Can you ask a dentist to take a tooth out?
If the tooth can be removed using Novocain or local anesthesia, most dentists can do this right in the office, perhaps even at the same time as your consultation. If the dentist determines that an oral surgeon is necessary, most dental offices have oral surgeons they work with and can easily make a referral.
There are many reasons why a dentist might remove a tooth. A tooth may be loose and need to be removed for safety reasons. A tooth may be infected and need to be removed to prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the mouth. A tooth may be causing pain or other problems and needs to be removed to prevent further pain or problems. A tooth may need to be removed because it is cancerous and will eventually die. A tooth may need to be removed because it is so badly damaged that it will not be able to function and is a risk to the person’s health. A tooth may need to be removed because it is too small or misshapen to fit through the normal dental procedures.
Will a dentist pull a tooth on the first visit?
If a patient’s medical condition is considered “controlled” it may be possible for their dentist to go ahead and perform their tooth extraction on their first visit.
A lot depends on the individual’s oral health and dental history. If a patient has had a lot of cavities, or any other problems with their teeth, the dentist may recommend that they have a tooth pulled on the first visit. On the other hand, if a patient has good oral health and no history of problems, the dentist may not recommend a tooth pull. Ultimately, it is up to the dentist to decide whether or not to pull a tooth on the first visit.
How much does it cost to extract a tooth?
The cost for tooth extraction varies widely depending on whether the tooth is impacted. Simple extraction usually costs between $75 and $200 per tooth, and may be more depending on the type of anesthesia you need. The cost to remove impacted teeth is significantly higher and can land anywhere between $800 and $4,000.
Extracting a tooth can cost anywhere from $200 to $2,000 depending on the tooth and the technique used. The most common methods used to extract teeth are via Novocaine and a dental drill.
When should a tooth be pulled out?
A loose baby tooth should only be pulled if it is extremely loose. If the baby tooth dangles in the socket, pulling it out makes sense. This way, there is no risk of swallowing it after it loosens on its own. Just make sure your little one does not feel pain when pressure is applied to the tooth.
Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove a tooth. The decision to remove a tooth is made after the tooth has become infected, is a risk to the patient’s health, or is not functional. There are a number of factors that can be used to make this decision, including the patient’s age, health, and dental history.
When a tooth should be pulled out depends on the individual’s situation. If a tooth is infected, is a risk to the patient’s health, or is not functional, it should be pulled out. If a tooth is healthy but is not functioning, it may be best to leave it in place to avoid any further dental problems. When a tooth is just starting to decay, it may be best to remove it before it becomes a larger problem. Dentists will often give patients the option to have a tooth pulled out, or have it treated with a dental implant.
