The Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal

We make wisdom tooth extractions more affordable by offering financing options and accepting many forms of payment at all of our office locations.

How Much Does it Cost to Have Wisdom Teeth Removed?

The oral surgeons at Beech & Reid Oral & Dental Implant Surgery create custom treatment plans for every patient. While we regularly perform wisdom teeth extractions, every patient is different and we cater to their individual needs. During your first visit, one of our oral surgeons will evaluate your teeth and determine the specifics of your wisdom tooth surgery. Some people need all four teeth extracted, while others have less than four or more than four.

Your wisdom tooth extraction cost will depend on several factors. These include:

  • The number of wisdom teeth you need to have removed
  • If any wisdom teeth are impacted, which affects the complexity of your surgery
  • Your choice of anesthesia (we offer local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and general anesthesia; most patients undergo IV sedation for this procedure)
  • The details of your dental insurance
  • If you require any additional surgical procedures

We are here to answer all of your questions. Our administrative staff is knowledgeable with insurance claims. If you would like to learn more about wisdom teeth removal, visit our Wisdom Teeth Removal page or contact our offices in Sunnyvale, San Jose, or Milpitas to schedule an appointment.

Financial institutions help to cover these expenses, and CareCredit® is an institution that has helped thousands of people afford the care they need. CareCredit is a credit card that covers out-of-pocket expenses not covered by your insurance. You can use your credit card for oral surgery, other dental procedures, and even vet care for your pets.

Risks of Leaving Third Molars Untreated

There is simply not enough room in the average mouth for an extra set of molars. Wisdom teeth are large, and they have unpredictable roots. These roots can penetrate facial nerves, other tooth roots, and damage nearby structures. An impacted wisdom tooth (a tooth that is trapped beneath the gums) is prone to infections because it is difficult to properly clean. Infections can lead to the formation of cysts and tumors, or progress to more serious issues like gum disease and tooth decay.

Not all wisdom teeth cause discomfort, leading many people to ignore them and leave them in the mouth. However, although they are not causing pain, wisdom teeth can slowly harm your health. They can push teeth out of alignment, causing bite problems and sudden discomfort in the future. As you age, the roots of wisdom teeth will become more strongly embedded into the jawbone. This is why dental professionals recommend having them removed as soon as possible. When wisdom teeth have not yet fully developed, they are smaller and easier to remove. While many teenagers and young adults undergo this surgery, you can have wisdom teeth extracted at any age.

When you have wisdom teeth removed by the team of experts at Beech & Reid Oral & Dental Implant Surgery, you protect your oral health and avoid the many problems associated with third molars.
