During the consultation appointment at The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego, your oral surgeon will present you with an estimate of costs based on several factors: how many teeth will be extracted, the type of anesthesia that is chosen for your procedure, your insurance coverage, and how difficult the extraction will be in terms of the depth of impaction, etc. During the examination, diagnostic images will be taken to create the best surgical plan possible. If you or your child have been recommended for a wisdom teeth extraction, we encourage you to contact a member of our staff to schedule a consultation with one of our exceptional oral surgeons.
Your Oral Health Investment
Most dental professionals recommend that wisdom teeth be extracted early, before they cause oral health problems. This approach saves the time, money, and discomfort related to future orthodontic or surgical treatments to resolve issues such as impaction and dental crowding. Early wisdom teeth removal is cost-effective for many reasons:
- Prevention of oral health issues. Dental shifting, oral infections, gum disease, and damage or crowding of nearby teeth are some of the oral health problems that can be avoided by removing the wisdom teeth early.
- Easier surgery/faster recovery. Younger patients tend to recover faster from wisdom teeth extractions because their third molars are less developed and therefore easier to remove. Faster healing equals in less time away from work or school.
- Less risk of complications. Untreated wisdom teeth can cause costly and painful complications such as bleeding, swelling, and discomfort that require further treatment — these problems are eliminated when wisdom teeth are removed early. Less treatment means less overall cost.
The team at The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego want wisdom teeth removal to be accessible for our patients.
