Factors That Affect the Cost of Extractions
The Complexity of the Extraction
There are two types of extractions: simple extractions and surgical extractions. A simple extraction is the removal of visible teeth above the gum line and is relatively easy to access. A surgical extraction is required when the teeth are not visible or difficult to reach. This type of extraction is more expensive than a simple extraction because it requires more time and effort.
The Cost of Anesthesia
There are different types of anesthesia available for extractions, and the fees will vary depending on the type you choose. For example, your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area surrounding the teeth being extracted, while general anesthesia will sedate you during the procedure. General anesthesia is usually more expensive than local anesthesia. Your dentist will help you decide what anesthesia options are best for you.
Additional Dental Care Procedures
In some cases, tooth extraction may require additional dental care procedures, such as implants or cosmetic dentistry work. For example, if a patient has one or more natural teeth removed during their appointment, they will likely need to replace the teeth they are extracting with implants. This can add to the overall cost of your treatment.
Another factor determining what you pay for your tooth extraction is your dental insurance. Most dental plans will cover some or all of the fees associated with simple extractions, but they may not cover the entire fee for surgical extractions. If you have questions about what dental work your insurance plan covers, please call our office, and we will be happy to help.
