How Much Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost?

Trust the Certified Specialists at Argyle Associates

Trust our certified specialists in wisdom teeth removal.

What are the Factors that Influence
the Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Number of wisdom teeth in the patient’s mouth

  • Number of wisdom teeth in the patient’s mouth
  • Some people have less than 4 wisdom teeth (or even none)
  • Other patients have “supernumerary” teeth and may need more than four teeth removed

The position of the wisdom teeth

  • In some cases, the tooth is fully erupted and in a normal position, in which case the removal is fairly straightforward
  • In other cases, the tooth might be impacted (growing sideways or under other teeth), in which case the extraction could take longer.

Type of anesthesia selected

  • There are several different possible anesthesia options: local anesthetic, laughing gas (nitrous oxide), intravenous sedation and general anesthesia
  • Additional information about anesthesia options can be found on our website at https://argyleassociates.com/anaesthesia/

In certain circumstances, computer-guided surgery can deliver many additional benefits. However, this requires 3D x-rays (CBCT), intraoral digital scans and some laboratory work.
 
In many cases, dental implants are partly or fully covered under the patient’s dental insurance. Argyle Associates in Ottawa will provide an estimate to you and submit it to your insurance provider, who can determine your eligibility and coverage amounts.

Whether wisdom teeth extraction is covered by insurance depends on your insurance provider and package. There is a large variety of dental plans in Canada, with some plans covering wisdom teeth extraction, others partially cover the costs of the procedure, and others require you to pay out of pocket. In order to fully understand if your wisdom teeth removal is covered by insurance, and to what extent, you should talk to your dental insurance provider.

During your initial wisdom teeth removal consultation at Argyle Associates, your surgeon will discuss your anaesthesia options with you. How many teeth will be removed, your medical history, and your level of anxiety will help guide you and your surgeon to choosing the right anesthesia. Your options will include local freezing, oral sedation, nitrous oxide, IV conscious and deep sedation, and general anesthesia.

If your wisdom teeth are healthy, grown in completely (fully erupted), positioned correctly, biting properly, and are able to be properly cleaned you might not need them to be removed. We recommend regular visits to the dentists to ensure you do not need wisdom teeth removal.

How many wisdom teeth you need removed depends on how many wisdom teeth are causing your oral health issues. If two wisdom teeth are causing problems and two are healthy, then only two need to be removed. Sometimes your dentist or surgeon will recommend removing all four teeth even if only one or two teeth are impacted if they have good reason to believe they will cause you oral health concerns in the future.

There are a number of signs that your wisdom teeth are coming in, such as:

  • Jaw pain
  • Bleeding or tender gums
  • Swelling of the gums or jaw
  • An unpleasant taste in the mouth or bad breath
  • Difficulty opening your mouth

If you are experiencing any of the above systems, contact Argyle Associates today for a consultation to determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed.
