How much does wisdom teeth extraction cost?

The cost of having a wisdom tooth extracted varies, but is generally averages several hundred dollars per tooth. A simple extraction usually costs less than extracting an impacted tooth. Some dentists include all costs, such as x-rays, in the fee; others charge separately. Fees also vary by location. To find free or reduced-cost dental care, check with your local dental school. Most offer dental clinics where dental students, closely supervised by experienced dentists, provide reduced-cost care. You can also look in your area for a community health center that offers affordable dental care. The charitable organization United Way may also be able to help you find a dental facility you can afford. If you have dental insurance, check with your provider to learn how much of the cost is covered.
