It can be disconcerting to hear that your wisdom teeth need to be removed. Don't you need them to chew in the back of your mouth? Not necessarily, and it's a smart decision over the long term. Once a treatment plan calls for extraction, however, you're faced with the tooth extraction cost, and there's no easy way to break it down. For some it may be more costly for each tooth at $800, whereas others may spend much less.
Numerous factors can determine how the procedure and type of anesthesia will affect your budget, so your dentist or oral surgeon will be there to evaluate your mouth and guide you along the way.
