One of the most common inquiries about wisdom teeth circles the topic of the cost of wisdom teeth removal. The cost of your wisdom teeth removal will depend on the stage of development of your teeth, the type of anesthesia used, and your insurance coverage, among other factors. The only way to be sure of the cost of treatment is to have a consultation and examination with an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon, such as Dr. Lawrence Falender.
Wisdom teeth can cause oral health problems if they are left untreated, and many of these complications require costly treatments following extraction. Extracting wisdom teeth early is a smart investment for the following reasons:
- Wisdom teeth removal can save you money on orthodontic treatments and other procedures required to correct the damage caused by wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth grow in the mouth, their tendency to crowd the dental arch or to grow sideways puts patients at a greater risk of tooth misalignment.
- Wisdom teeth removal can prevent or eliminate the pain and discomfort associated with overcrowded or impacted teeth.
