When your child experiences problems or pain with his or her wisdom teeth, a removal surgery may be necessary. There are many factors that affect the cost of treatment, including what type of anesthetic is used and if your insurance will help. Knowing these factors can help you prepare for the cost.
At Kool Smiles, we can answer any questions about the cost of wisdom teeth removal, with or without insurance. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
A single wisdom tooth removal can cost as little as $99 per tooth if it is a simple, straight-forward removal. Wisdom teeth that are impacted (stuck in the jaw) can cost between $230 and $340 because they are more difficult to remove.
Anesthesia, X-rays, and prescriptions for additional medication can add to the overall cost of a wisdom teeth removal bill.
Wisdom teeth removal cost also depends on which type of anesthesia the dentist uses to remove your child’s teeth:
Your kid’s dental health professional will discuss which type of anesthesia is the right choice for your kid’s situation. The dental care provider will also be able to give you instructions for after care and how to help your child recover from the surgery.
Most dental insurance plans cover the cost of wisdom teeth removal, but it’s a good idea to check with your provider to make certain.
