Fees Vary: The cost to extract a tooth in Oscar, LA is different that the cost in Manhattan or in Phoenix. Even in a specific area, the cost may vary, based on the fee schedule of the office or the complexity of the extraction. But since you asked, the fee can vary from $75 TO $1000, based on the simplest to the most complex with IV sedation. Hope this info helps.

$175 to $600: it depends on a number of factors, including: geographic location, extent of the procedure and experience of the dentist.

We are in Houston, Tx. The going rate in Texas for full fee for service (aka no insurance) is $150 to $500+ depending on if it is a simple extraction or a full bony impacted wisdom tooth. Fees also vary between specialists (oral surgeons) and general dentists. If you have dental insurance, you portion would be less than these fees.

Cost of extraction: The price for extraction of a single tooth can vary depending on various factors i.e. Degree of difficulty, being extracted by a general dentist or an oral surgeon, A simple extraction can range fro $100-200, while a surgical extraction from $200-500. The tooth could be totally encased in bone, or, abscessed and broken down from decay and hard to access, such as a posterior wisdom tooth.

Agree: I agree with the previous answers. Best bet is to call around at different offices. Most will quote fees. For best (not cheapest) results, see an oral surgeon.

Speak with provider: This is a variable depending on your insurance and what is being performed. There are simple and complex extractions. There are extractions performed with adjunctive therapy such as bone grafts, membranes and implants. Speak with your provider to obtain specifics in your area.

Is it: Is it a front, side or back tooth, upper or lower. Is the tooth intact, fractured, decayed. Is the supporting bone/gums intact it damaged. Costs for Rx are higher along the coasts and in major metropolitan areas. Specialists charge more than generalists, but Oral Surgeons do extractions faster, better. You would be better served seeking quality of care, as opposed to cheapest fee.

Ext prices: The cost to extract a tooth is based on the type of extraction it is--simple, surgical, or impacted. Prices in La could range from $75-500 per tooth. If you are near a dental school, call them. for a quote.

Another variable..: As pointed out the cost of an extraction will vary as a function of the complexity of the procedure and training level of the dentist (specialist or not). Another variable is the setting of the procedure. Community Health Centers often have sliding fee scales driven by your income level and can dramatically bring down the cost of a simple extraction for folks who lack insurance or financial means.
Dr. Armine Nazarian

Cost of extraction: It depends what kind of extraction you are talking about and if it is a wisdom tooth that is exposed or it's one that is impacted. Anything between $150 to $250 would be a reasonable fee in my opinion. However, you may be quoted a higher fee depending on the type of anesthesia and how complicated the extraction is. Good luck, Dr. Nazarian

Well..........: What is the cost of a motor vehicle? Is it a motorcycle? A bus? A Rolls Royce limo? The cost of an extraction depends on many things including the type of tooth and its condition. See your Oral Maxilofacial Surgeon (OMS) for an evaluation and a payment plan if you need it
Dr. Charles Lockhart

Depends: Price for tooth extraction is related to degree of difficulty. If the tooth is multirooted and severely broken down, it will be more difficult to remove and will cost more than a single rooted front tooth. Advise a dental visit for xrays, evaluation, and a consultation
Dr. Jake Richards
Dentistry 13 years experience
Depends: Where you are is usually the determining factor. Probably around $100-$150 for the extraction but likely you will have to pay for an exam and xray so closer to $200-$250 by the time its done. Could be more if you see an oral surgeon or want sedation. Good luck
Dr. Irina Hayrapetyan

Range from 65 to 650: Depends is it surgical or simple extraction, Impacted soft tissue of Bony impacted tooth. Range from 65 to 650.
Dr. John Thaler
Prosthodontics 42 years experience
Varies: Depends on the tooth, whether it is a surgical extraction, general Dentist or Oral Surgeon, and location of the office. In city -- more, suburbs- likely less. Simple extraction may be $125 - 180. Surgical may be $180 - 325. Also, there may be a charge for the x-ray imaging and examination. If sedation required, then much more. Dental Schools -- much less. Good Luck.
Dr. Amber Patel

Depends: I would say you would want to have at least $500 ready to spend, it may not be that much but it depends where you go. I know at my office you would be looking at $200-300 for one tooth after you include the initial examination. It depends on the difficulty of the extraction and if you want any analgesics such as Nitrous Oxide or other sedation options. Call a few offices and ask before you go.
Dr. Keith Hollander
Dentistry 37 years experience
Costs for extraction: fees depend on where you and the difficulty in removing the tooth. the range is from $100 to 800 for an impacted tooth
Dr. Thomas Frymark
Dentistry 47 years experience
$220, if easy: That's a simple extraction at my office, with no x-ray or examination. Depends on how difficult the extraction is and type of anesthetic. If you need an extraction, see a dentist as soon as possible.
Dr. Gabriel Malouf

Ask you dentist.: If cost is your concern, you need to first a provider you trust and ask her or him. I can spend a long time and a lot of words to give you a range of expectations that will mean nothing to you, or you can ask your provider and get a quick accurate (and relevant) response--you may even find other non-extraction options you like better. Get off-line and get a real answer.

Pricing Extractions$: Good day; I can't respond to your question in a simple manner. Initially, where is the tooth found in the mouth, is the tooth partially broken- possibly requiring a surgical extraction? Does the post extraction site require a graft? Is there a need for an implant to replace the extracted tooth. Wisdom teeth; a bone graft may improve prognosis of 2nd molar. Costs may range from 250-1000.
Dr. Raymond Traver
Dentistry 36 years experience
Varies widely: from 150 to 500+ DEPENDING ON THE tooth and the difficulty and the dentist
Dr. Elton Behner
Dentistry 38 years experience
Fees vary: greatly depending on geographic location and type of facility i.e. clinic, private practice, dental school. Best to ask each. Some charge on a sliding scale based on income.
Dr. Gary Sandler
Dentistry 55 years experience
Cost to extract: The cost to extract: Initial cost may range from $0 if you have good dental insurance to hundreds of dollars if it's a difficult surgical extraction. Long term cost is in thousands to replace missing tooth (unless it's a wisdom tooth which does not need replacement). That is why it is important to see dentist regularly for routine treatment.

Go find out: The cost of Orthodontic care varies according to degree of difficulty, area of the country, type of appliance, etc. Seek quality of care above cost of care. There are many Orthodentists, non-specialists who dabble in tooth movement. Better to seek Initial Examination (usually free) with a fully trained specialist Orthodontist.
