Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually start to push through your gums in your late teens or early twenties. In some cases, wisdom teeth may need to be removed in your late twenties or early thirties. Whatever your case may be, wisdom teeth must almost always be removed because there often is not enough space for them to come in, thus crowding the other teeth.
Wisdom teeth that don’t push through the gums can become a problem. They can become infected below the gumline and cause additional oral health problems. So, if pain is felt near the back of your mouth, be sure to consult your dentist to confirm it is your wisdom teeth causing the pain. If they are coming in, a plan of action will be formulated to extract them.
The cost to get wisdom teeth removed can be wide-ranging because there are so many factors that go into your treatment.
Will you need one wisdom tooth removed or all four? Do you prefer IV anesthesia? Is our practice in-network with your insurance? These will all affect the cost, but we can give you some general pricing.
The cost to remove one wisdom tooth starts at $200 and can go up to $3,600 for a complex case to remove all four with IV anesthesia, but the average cost is $2,200. With insurance, the typical out of pocket cost ranges from $500 to $800.
To find out whether you'll have a simple or complex wisdom tooth removal, we invite you for a virtual or in-office consultation.
