How much does it cost to pull a wisdom tooth? While costs vary depending on how your tooth has grown, signs of infection, insurance plans, and your state guidelines, a typical extraction costs between $75 and $600.
Keep reading to learn about the cost of pulling a tooth and the steps involved in restoring your smile.
Problems associated with wisdom teeth include impacted teeth (where your wisdom teeth grow into your molars and misalign your teeth) and cavities (which are easier to form due to their hard-to-reach position).
If left untreated, an impacted wisdom tooth may lead to infections, cavities, or gum disease.
When your dentist clears you for a wisdom tooth pulling, these guidelines will help you determine the cost of care and treatment:
At Kool Smiles, we make it more affordable than you may think to pull a wisdom tooth.
After having a wisdom tooth pulled, it typically takes about four to seven days to heal. Follow your dentist’s after-care guidelines to avoid infection.
Consult your dentist at the first signs of discomfort to schedule x-rays, perform a cleaning, and determine whether or not your or your child’s wisdom tooth needs to be removed.
