Cost of Wisdom Teeth
Every patient’s situation is different, which is why we have a consultation with you prior to the surgery. This allows us to present any possible costs up front, and help you decipher your insurance benefits. Factors that affect wisdom teeth cost:
- Anesthesia Used
- Dental Imaging
- Number of Teeth Extracted
- Level of Impaction.
Often wisdom teeth are covered by either dental insurance or medical insurance. Your insurance will not cover the full cost of the procedure and consultation.
We have a staff that can file your insurance for you, and also check your benefits.
If you have insurance – we will typically collect a co-payment, and file your insurance on your behalf. Depending upon what they pay – you may owe money afterwards, or receive a refund if they were to pay very well.
Our office is not contracted with any insurance companies at the their discounted rate. So we will be out of network. However – unless your insurance is a closed DMO or HMO where you have no option to pick alternative providers – your insurance company will provide benefits for you for services covered in our office.
Insurance usually takes 30-40 business days to process. Please feel free to give our insurance coordinator a call if you have any questions.
