Cost of Wisdom Tooth Removal
A standard single tooth extraction ranges from $315 to $860. However, the cost-incurring factors with wisdom teeth removal are unique for each patient. No two procedures are identical, and the same is true of the procedures’ ultimate cost.
How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?
The cost of wisdom tooth removal is different for everyone because it depends on the situation. For instance, it will be less expensive to have one wisdom tooth removed than all four. During your initial consultation, Dr. Szutz will assess your oral health and the level of impaction to determine the best treatment plan.
Impacted wisdom teeth can cause crowding of adjacent teeth. Sometimes, the wisdom teeth can grow at severe angles and become stuck, making them harder to remove. These factors, and others, contribute to the total cost, including:
- Anesthesia Preference
- Dental Imaging and X-rays
- Number of Wisdom Teeth to Remove
- Level of Tooth Impaction
The High Cost of Waiting to Remove Wisdom Teeth
If you wait to get your wisdom teeth removed until the roots are fully developed, the procedure is more complex and will likely carry a higher cost. If you decide not to remove them, you risk developing gum disease, jawbone cysts, and severe oral infection. In the long run, the cost of not removing wisdom teeth is much higher, both to your health and budget.
