Out of personal experience it cost me about $2000.

Cost of Having Wisdom Teeth Pulled

Here are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers:

  • I would say it is probably about 2000 dollars. Or more possibly. And just a side note, it won't be too much more to have the 4th one taken out at the same time, if you have it. And it will be much better for you in the long run.
  • It could be a lot less than that if you had the right plan and I am not talking insurance. I am talking a discount card that cost less than insurance and save you more money than no insurance at all.
  • My doctor charged 460 per tooth for extraction and 260 for IV sedation.
  • Having four wisdom teeth pulled will cost 2133.00 at the place I am having it done. I will also have general anesthesia.
  • I got my wisdom teeth pulled in Brazil while I was there as it was much cheaper. I paid $600 for pulling my four wisdom teeth.
  • To have all four of mine, plus IV sedation, and gas, it was $1100CA. It would have been $50 cheaper if I had it done in a hospital, but being in a hospital would mean total sedation and I'd loose all my piercings. Price really depends on experience and qualifications.
  • I just got all 4 of my wisdom teeth yesterday. I have absolutely no pain at all. I am taking penicillin and ibuprofen, but I have not experienced pain yet. To take out all four of my wisdom teeth, it cost $295 for all 4 because we have insurance. It's a good thing we have insurance or else it would of cost over $1200. (Don't listen to what your friends say, because it does not hurt. For best results, be put to sleep because you do not feel a thing).
  • I didn't pay a thing to have mine out, I've looked after the computers for my dentist for years. You don't need any sort of general sedation, only local. I just had to find my "happy place" while they were being pulled, it only took a few minutes each. Believe it or not but in my experience it hurts more while having a filling.
  • My girlfriend just got 2 (bottom) wisdom teeth pulled today, in Medellin Colombia. It cost 300,000 COP (about $125). She had the top 2 pulled a few months back, and it was cheaper (they came out easy). For about $400 round trip from Miami, $200 to have teeth pulled, you still have quite a bit left over for a vacation, hotels, etc. to enjoy another country.
  • I would recommend carefully considering the need for sedation, which our Marin, California dentist was trying to "sell" us at around $500! My kid had three teeth that were not impacted and one that was slightly. We refused the sell job on the sedation and my son said the procedure was nothing to worry about. It took 20 minutes and we saved a lot. I'm also pretty sure that sedation is not covered by many insurance companies. It is probably because it is not necessary. Let's face it, if you have impacted teeth and are going to be sitting there with your mouth open for an hour or more, then maybe sedation is the way to go. If not, don't be sold on something that is not necessary. I was shocked at the line of BS we were given to try and get us to go for the $500 pop. Unethical in my opinion.

my son needs his out. for 4 teeth $1900.00

i just got all 4 of mine taken out today with IV total sedation. it cost me 424.60 but i think insurance took care of most of the price

Most wisdom teeth are pulled out with local anesthesia. Rare cases of very afraid people has been put asleep.

No - answering as a patient here. If your awake the Dentist has to be careful about what they do (which is still rough - wisdom teeth are firmly attached to the rest of you). If your out, they can work hard and fast to finish the job. Good Luck!

im not sure about having you put to sleep but each tooth can be about 1900 for extrction. i had insurance coverage for my 4 extractions but I still had to pay 20% of the whole total which was about 381 per tooth, almost 1600 for all 4. good luck on your removal- it's not a pleasant one!
