How much does it cost to have wisdom teeth removed?


It is reasonable to want to know how much it will cost to have wisdom teeth removed when this is a concern. The cost will be dependent on how extensive the procedure is. If you only require a simple tooth extraction then the cost will be relatively low. If you require something more extensive that includes anesthetic and surgery, the cost can be considerably more. Removing wisdom teeth can cost as much as $3,000. A consultation with your dentist will help to clarify what the actual cost will be.

If you can pay with insurance, need to pay out of pocket, or require a finance plan, we can help.

How much does wisdom teeth removal cost without insurance?


Simple extractions of teeth that have broken through the gums can be as little as $200 and as much as $700 each to be removed.

If the wisdom teeth are impacted, the cost can rise to $1,100 each to be removed. Wisdom teeth that are impacted inside the gums are less expensive because they are easier to remove. Wisdom teeth that are stuck in the jawbone will require more work and be more expensive.

What factors impact how much it costs to have wisdom teeth removed?


The out-of-pocket cost to have wisdom teeth removed will depend on various factors:

The first is the condition of your tooth or teeth. Teeth that have come fully through the gums are easier to remove because the dentist or surgeon has easy access to them.

Impacted teeth that are completely or even partially stuck under the gum or stuck in the jawbone are more difficult to remove. The dentist is not able to just numb the area and remove the tooth. They will need to use a form of sedation and cut into the area around the tooth to have access to it. Removal of impacted teeth requires more time, skill, and supplies, which makes it more expensive.

The number of teeth that are being removed will impact the cost. If you only have one tooth causing a problem, the cost will be lower than if you have more than one that is problematic.

If you need anesthesia for the procedure, then the type that is used will impact the cost. Dentists most often use a local to numb the area that is being treated. The cost will usually include local anesthesia.

Local anesthesia is not the only option. You may want something stronger, like sedation.  Sedation can be given in various forms, like gas, medication, or an IV. This will help you remain calm during the procedure and increase the cost.

If you need to have more than one tooth removed, the dentist may use a general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep during the procedure. This will require more time since you will need time to awaken after the procedure.

Your age can be a factor in the cost. As you get older the bones become more dense, which makes the removal more difficult. The more complex the procedure, the more expensive it will be. When you are younger, the bones are softer, which makes the teeth easier to remove.

How much does it cost to have wisdom teeth removed with insurance?


Dental insurance doesn’t always cover the total cost of wisdom tooth extraction. Most of the time, you will be required to pay for a portion of the procedure. This is usually stated as a percentage of the cost. You will need to contact your insurance provider to find out what your coverage will pay.
