Every year, around 5 million people get their wisdom teeth removed. These are the four teeth that pop out at the back of your jaw when you are in your late teens or early adulthood. Wisdom teeth, also known as the third set of molars, cause more damage than good and are not likely to help a lot in dental health. Hence, it is considered better to extract them rather than let them erupt incorrectly which leads to damaging other teeth and causing infection in the gums. The Cost of a Wisdom Tooth in Mississauga ON. Wisdom tooth extraction can take about 20–45 minutes. However, we cannot be this certain in terms of providing the cost as it depends on a number of factors. The wisdom tooth’s state and its position in the jaw are the main factors that determine how much the extraction will cost. On average, the cost could vary between $200 to $750.
2. Impact (under soft tissue) – Delicate tissue wisdom tooth impaction implies that an insight tooth (third molar) has gotten through a portion of the bone yet remains somewhat lower in the gingiva (gums). The cost of this type of removal is generally higher than erupted wisdom teeth.
3. Impacted Partially Bonny – When the crown of the tooth emerges from the jawbone but is stuck in the gum, it causes swelling and persistent pain. Under the local sedation, Patients are not supposed to feel any pain, but a little bit of pressure is required in the procedure. An incision is made in the gums and small bone that hides the teeth, followed by extraction, and with stitches, the patient is good to go!
4. Impacted Wisdom Tooth, Fully Bony – In this case, the wisdom teeth are stuck between both the gums and the jaw. This surgery is considered quite complex as the impacted wisdom tooth may be in an unusual position and difficult to remove, which requires a careful extraction including an incision in the gums and bones to expose the teeth and then cutting them into smaller pieces. This procedure is highly complex and comes at greater expense and costs.
Other Factors – The price for wisdom teeth removal is also influenced by several other factors involved in the treatment, which include a number of appointments, x-rays, treating existing infection if any, type of sedation, and post-op treatment. Anesthesia and Nitrous Sedation Both Nitrous sedation and local anesthesia are utilized to help patients during dental procedures. Nitrous sedation helps to ease uneasiness and anxiety. Local anesthesia guarantees a painless experience for the patients. At AIMS Dentistry we will discuss and tailor the options of Anesthesia and sedation based on your requirement and needs.
