At Affordable Dentures & Implants, we believe a tooth extraction should bring you nothing but relief. Having a tooth pulled is often a necessary procedure to remove broken, chipped, or decaying teeth that, if left in your mouth, could negatively affect your health in the long-term — plus cause you pain or discomfort in the short-term. To help you feel totally comfortable with your tooth extraction procedure, we’re happy to provide general fee information in the following ways:
- Call your local practice directly
- Call 1-800-DENTURE to get fee information over the phone, or request an information brochure mailed to you at no charge
- Visit our Locations page to see the fee schedule for your local practice
Your dentist will always provide personalized fee information after your plan has been crafted. There may be additional fees associated with your procedure that are not listed in the general information.
What Cost Factors are Associated with Tooth Extractions?
A simple extraction has a relatively straightforward associated cost, however there may be multiple factors in your overall care plan that could affect your total bill, such as:
- The number of teeth to be extracted
- The amount and type of anesthesia used
- Prescribed medications for after the procedure, such as antibiotics or pain relief
- Any x-rays and exams ahead of the procedure
- Any follow-up appointments
Does Tooth Type Affect Extraction Cost?
Contrary to popular belief, the type of tooth to be extracted is not a factor — whether it’s a molar, a wisdom tooth, or an incisor won’t affect costs. That said, regardless of the type of tooth, if that tooth is impacted, erupted, or is otherwise more complex to remove, that may increase costs.
Will Tooth Replacement Affect Tooth Extraction Cost?
Depending on the location of the extracted tooth or teeth, many of our patients opt for some kind of tooth replacement — whether it’s full dentures or partial dentures, or implants — to help protect the gumline and restore their smile. These teeth replacement options will also have their own associated costs.
Dental Insurance Coverage
Most extractions are covered by major dental insurance groups, Medicare, and third-party service providers like Veterans’ Affairs, which we are happy to accept. However, some patients find that our tooth extraction fees are lower than what they’d pay with insurance. Your local practice staff will walk you through all your available options for paying for your tooth extraction(s) so you can feel totally confident in your decision.
