In brief: Depends
The extraction of the tooth and incision and/or drainage of the abscess depends on the extent of the abscess and structures involved, the position of the tooth, how much tooth structure is remaining, as well as the type of anesthesia provided.
All of the factors mentioned above affect the cost, as well as individual fees charged by different offices.

In brief: A lot, but affordabl
An abscess tooth produces an acute inflammatory process, resulting in a exudate of pus that must be removed from the extraction site through drainage.
Antibiotics are common, as well as incision and suturing of a drain in place. Removing the tooth will assist in establishing a drain, but could impede healing if reactive tissues remain. The cost is extraction about $200 and incision $200. Do it.
