Key Facts about the Cost of a Tooth Extraction

  • A tooth may need to be extracted due to extreme decay, weak structure due to bone loss, or a fracture or break. Impacted teeth, including wisdom teeth, may also need to be extracted.
  • Without insurance, a simple extraction may cost around $300 per tooth. An extraction of a compacted or wisdom tooth may cost $1,000 to $3,000.
  • In addition to the type of extraction, other factors can increase the price, including your location, the rates charged by your dentist, the location of the extraction in your mouth, and if there are any additional complications.
  • Additional in-office procedures, like x-rays and anesthesia, may add considerably to the cost of tooth extraction.
  • If you have a dental insurance policy, approximately 70% to 80% of your costs may be covered. Talk to your provider to clarify your coverage.

Understanding the Cost Breakdown of a Tooth Extraction

There are several reasons you may need to have a tooth removed. Here are a few:

Factors that Impact the Cost of a Tooth Extraction

  • Having a tooth extracted seems like a simple enough procedure, but there are some factors that impact the overall cost. These may include the following:
  • The cost of living in your city: The cost of dental services, including tooth extractions, may be more expensive in some geographical regions or major cities.
  • Your dentist’s experience and skill level: Some specialists may charge more for additional expertise or experience.
  • The type of extraction: Surgical extractions and the extraction of impacted teeth (including wisdom teeth) will be more expensive.
  • The location in the mouth: Back teeth may be harder to reach and work on. These may require a specialist or additional billable time.
  • Any complications. Complications like infections, gum problems, or surrounding decay may make the procedure more difficult and increase in-office time or require the help of a specialist.
  • Tooth extractions are covered by dental insurance when they are medically necessary, but even with dental insurance, you can still expect to pay something out of pocket.

Additional Fees & Procedures for Tooth Extractions

  • Local numbing agents are often enough for simple extractions. If you have serious issues around your tooth or if you are getting your wisdom teeth removed, your dentist may recommend more sedation, including general anesthesia. This is often a separate cost and requires an anesthesiologist as part of the surgical team.
  • The x-rays that are taken before and after your tooth extraction can get lumped into your bill too. While your dental insurance will cover annual x-rays as part of preventative treatment, additional x-rays are not likely to be covered.
  • A panoramic x-ray can cost as much as $120; however, one basic x-ray is about $30. The exam fee might be $75.

How Much Does a Tooth Extraction Cost without Insurance?

  • Typically, dental insurance will cover some of the cost of routine dental extractions, often as much as 70% to 80% of the upfront cost. However, you may still pay something out of pocket.
  • Discuss all the costs with your dentist beforehand, so you understand what to expect. Ask about how to ensure dental insurance covers as much as possible, how you can set up reasonable payments for the rest of your needed care, and if there are steps you can take to lower the overall cost.
  • You may need a dental implant or bridge to replace the missing tooth. If you have wisdom teeth pulled, these are not replaced by implants. If you have another permanent tooth removed, your dentist may want to replace it with an implant to keep your bite aligned properly. This will come at an additional cost.
  • Before you can get an implant, you’ll need time for your gums and jaw to heal after the extraction. This time can help you plan for the cost of the implant and learn more about what the best crown material would be for you.

Does insurance always cover tooth extraction?

Since tooth extractions are considered medically necessary, they are almost always covered by dental insurance. Different plans cover extractions at different levels, but you can expect to pay something out of pocket, even if you have dental insurance.

What options do I have if I don’t have insurance?

If you qualify for government-based health insurance, such as Medicare or Medicaid, tooth extractions are generally covered if deemed medically necessary.

Some dental schools may offer discounted fees for procedures like extractions. Students will often perform the extraction under the supervision of an instructor.
