how much can it cost to have an impacted wisdom tooth pulled out?

$200 - $1000: The cost depends on how difficult the tooth will be to extract. If the tooth has erupted, it will cost less to extract than if it is still under the gums. The dentist will take an xray and give you an estimate before the procedure. Here's a tip: keep an ice cooler in your car with ice bags. Put them on your face as soon as you get in car. This will decrease swelling and pain. Best of luck!

Depends: Depends on the doc (specialist costs more), degree of impaction, geographic location, insurance status, and local vs sedation (sedation more). For best results, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon. In oral surgery office 800-1200.
