Factors That Affect the Cost of Extractions

Several factors contribute to the price of a tooth extraction, including the type of tooth being extracted, the anesthesia used, and the complexity of your case. In addition, issues such as gum disease or periodontal disease can also contribute to the severity of your case and the overall cost.

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.

Dental Insurance

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. 

Tooth Extraction Cost FAQs

The cost of having your wisdom teeth removed is quite similar to that of other extractions. The main difference is that wisdom teeth will often require sedation, adding to the total investment. Wisdom teeth are also typically more complex than other teeth extractions, so they may take longer to perform.
A few ways to pay for your tooth extraction include dental insurance, payment plans, and out-of-pocket. Our dental team will walk you through your options during your first visit and find a payment option that works for you.
The best age to have wisdom teeth removed is typically around 18. This is because the roots of the teeth are not fully developed at this age, which makes the tooth extraction process easier. Wisdom teeth can be removed at any age, but it may be more challenging to extract them if they are impacted or have grown in at an angle.
