Varies: This will vary depending on where you live, the difficulty of the extractions, whether you choose to see a dentist or oral surgeon, and if you have the procedure done under local anesthetic or I.V. Sedation. If you make a consultation with a dentist or oral surgeon in your area, you should leave the office with an estimate of proposed treatment.

How complicated: In my zip code the specialist charges about $300 - $550 per tooth and about $450 for IV sedation. Also include about $250 for a ct scan.

Wide range, but: Wide range including variables: degree of impaction, local vs general anesthesia, insurance coverage, geographic location, general dentist vs specialist. Don't let cost be only governing factor. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.

Should or Could ?: It should cost what it takes to get the job done right. The cost could vary depending on the complexity and the surgeon and the locale.
