In brief: It can vary

An impacted tooth can be removed by any dentist, however oral surgeons generally have more training and experience with the more difficult impaction.
The cost will depend on who you see, x-rays required, type of anesthesia provided, the level or complexity of the impacted tooth and where your surgery is performed (office or hospital). Medications are also an additional expense.

In brief: Varies

The cost depends on the geographic area where you live and also on the oral surgeon.
different surgeons charges vary tremendously and the cheapest isn't the worst. Go visit a couple of providers for consultations.

In brief: Varies

Is it partially impacted or fully impacted.
What is your general health, what type of anesthesia will be required. Will medical management be necessary. And fees vary depending on your geographic location, training and skill of the Surgeon, and many other factors. If the tooth as any one other than a wisdom tooth, bringing it into the arch may be better than removing it.

Things are cheaper in general in southern states and more expensive in a state like new york. But even in the same town, different surgeons charges vary tremendously. In our town there is a difference of several hundred dollars between surgeons and the cheapest isn't the worst in my opinion. Get estimates.
