Does dental insurance cover wisdom teeth? Each family’s dental insurance plan is unique, so the answer depends on a few factors, including your insurance provider, your dentist, and where you’re located.
Read more to learn about the ways in which dental insurance can influence the price of wisdom teeth removal.
When your child’s dentist recommends wisdom teeth removal, your first thought may be, “How much will this cost me?” Delta Dental offers a free pre-treatment estimate to those enrolled in their plan to know how much of the cost will be covered, and how much you will need to pay.
Costs are estimated when Delta Dental reviews your x-rays, diagnosis, and proposed treatment plan and coverage.
They will then send you and your dentist an estimate of the costs. While this isn’t a guaranteed payment, your insurance will add up how much will be covered based on eligibility, benefits, and your annual maximum and deductible.
A simple wisdom tooth removal can cost anywhere from $75-$200 per tooth, or between $300-$800 to have all four wisdom teeth removed without surgery.
The actual cost of this minor surgery can vary based on how difficult it is to remove the teeth, how many have to be removed, and how much coverage your insurance provides.
