The cost of your wisdom teeth removal procedure will vary depending on a number of factors, including:

Even if wisdom teeth are not causing pain, they should still be removed. It’s rare for wisdom teeth to develop without causing any problems. They usually begin developing around the age of 17 and should be removed early, because they are smaller and have not fully developed. If you do not get them removed, they become large and more solidified in your jaw as the root grows. Younger patients have easier surgeries and recoveries because the wisdom teeth are smaller and not fully grown, in addition to typically healing faster.
Over time, a wisdom tooth can slowly push nearby teeth out of position, resulting in dental shifting. Their roots can grow into or damage facial nerves, which can be very painful. Impacted wisdom teeth are difficult to clean around and can become infected. Tooth decay and gum disease can spread to other teeth, which puts your oral health at risk. By having them removed early, you prevent all of the problems associated with wisdom teeth and protect your oral health.
The surgical extraction of wisdom teeth is similar to a standard tooth extraction procedure. You will undergo IV sedation during the procedure. Oral surgeons are trained to safely administer all forms of anesthesia and sedation, including local anesthesia, general anesthesia, and laughing gas.
An impacted wisdom tooth may need to be broken into smaller pieces before being removed. Visible wisdom teeth can be removed using forceps. Dissolvable sutures will be placed, and you will receive instructions on how to care for your surgical sites as they heal.
Our practice proudly offers financing options to help make excellent oral surgery care more affordable for more people.
