Cost Of A Wisdom Tooth Removal In Layton
The cost to get your wisdom teeth out can vary by a lot. With a typical insurance plan, a simple, single tooth extraction commonly costs about $100 — $200+ out of pocket. Without insurance, you can expect to pay approximately $200 to $600+ for a simple extraction per tooth.
It’s difficult to provide an accurate quote for wisdom teeth removal online or over the phone because your treatment plan must be tailored to your specific needs and can only be determined after an oral exam. There are two broad categories that dental extractions fall under which may give you a better idea of what your wisdom tooth removal may cost and why:
Simple Tooth Extraction
A simple extraction is performed on a wisdom tooth that’s fully erupted (visible in the mouth) without complication. These can be performed by a general dentist, using local anesthesia. If we can remove your wisdom tooth quickly and easily it will cost less.
Surgical Tooth Extraction
A surgical extraction is more complex and involves the removal of a wisdom tooth that hasn’t fully erupted, which has become impacted, which has complicated roots or which has a bad relationship with its neighbor, your 2nd molar. A surgical extraction, requiring a great amount of consideration, delicate care and expertise will come at a greater cost.
Remember, no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone as the procedures are complex and depend on many factors. Every case is different so it’s important to speak with a dentist who will evaluate your unique situation and provide you with different treatment options to consider.
