How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?
If you have been told you may need to have a wisdom tooth removed, it is understandable that you may have some queries or concerns.
Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, but certain issues may make an extraction necessary. This could include:
- Recurring pain and swelling because of a partly showing tooth (Pericoronitis)
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease (Periodontal disease)
- Fracture of the tooth
- Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth root
- Impaction (not enough room in the mouth for the tooth to come through properly)
Having an impacted wisdom tooth removed surgically is an extremely effective solution to these issues, and also means your other teeth and general oral health will not suffer any further because of them.
A large factor that will affect your wisdom tooth extraction cost is whether you choose to go to a general dentist, or to a highly skilled oral surgeon.
Depending on the complexity of the affected tooth’s position, the severity of damage or decay, and a variety of other factors, it is likely that you will be referred to an oral surgeon for your wisdom tooth removal.
At Dental Perfection, our Consultant Oral Surgeon is Mr. Anish Shah. As part of your wisdom teeth removal cost, you’ll benefit greatly from his many additional years advanced training in Oral Surgery, as well as his abundance of clinical experience in wisdom tooth extractions.
Your wisdom tooth consultation at our North London practice
If you are experiencing severe pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth, or if you have been referred to see an oral surgeon by your usual dentist, you should make an appointment with us as soon as possible.
When you come in for your consultation at our North London surgery in Hampstead, we will first need to take an x-ray of your mouth. This will give us a better idea of the current position and condition of your teeth and allow our oral surgeon to establish whether it will be a simple or a complex extraction.
At your oral surgery consultation, you’ll get the chance to meet Mr. Shah and the dental team that will be assisting on your extraction and be given the opportunity to answer any questions you may have about the procedure, risks, recovery, and your total tooth extraction cost. If everyone is happy to go ahead, you’ll be given the date for your tooth removal.
