Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost

Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost

The eruption of wisdom teeth, or third molars, during adulthood occasionally presents a troublesome occurrence. These teeth are named after the age at which they typically erupt.

While they can symbolise wisdom and development, they can also lead to discomfort and oral complications. Wisdom teeth have unpredictable growth pattern and may necessitate removal when it causes dental problems. 

Wisdom teeth are often recommended for removal due to several potential problems they can cause. Here are some of the reasons they should be removed:

  • Lack of space for them to erupt

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, which may be the reason why there isn’t adequate space in the back when they start to emerge.

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth may cause pain, swelling, and an increased risk of infection. 

  • Location of the wisdom teeth

Since they are found on the back most portion of the mouth, they are difficult to reach and clean during brushing, which may cause gum problems and decay. They can also cause damage to adjacent teeth which may later necessitate removal of the second molar due to extensive damage.

How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?

Wisdom teeth removal cost depends on several factors. 

  • The complexity of the extraction

If the third molar is impacted or has not fully erupted, the procedure may require extensive surgical techniques which may lead to higher cost.

  • The number of teeth to be extracted

While some people may only need one or two wisdom teeth extracted, others may need the removal of all four.

  • The need for sedation

Some patients are extremely anxious during extraction. They can opt for conscious or unconscious sedation during surgery for ease of removal and patient management. This may lead to additional costs on top of the surgery itself.
