How Much Would Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost?

Updated: Nov 11

All your teeth play a crucial role in your well-being. The last set of molars are called wisdom teeth. They chew and grind food. However, most people only think of their wisdom teeth when there is a problem. You'll need to remove impacted, decayed, or misaligned wisdom tooth. Why? And how much would it cost?

At what age do you get wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. These adult teeth grow in the back of your mouth. If you don't have enough space on your jaw, congestion may impact wisdom tooth growth. Impacted wisdom teeth are trapped in the jawbone and don't break through the gums. They can also emerge at the wrong angle and press against adjacent teeth. All these dental problems undermine overall oral health and function. To protect your dental health, have the misaligned or impacted wisdom teeth removed.

What happens if you never get your wisdom teeth pulled out?

Whether your wisdom tooth is impacted, misaligned, or decayed, you'll need to pull it out as soon as possible. These dental issues worsen over time and have far-reaching consequences.

  • Damage teeth, bone, and gums: A misaligned wisdom tooth presses and rubs against other teeth. If you don't extract it, the affected tooth will erode and damage healthy teeth. It also increases the risk of developing a cyst. Cysts can damage bone and gum tissue.

  • Pain: Infected wisdom teeth symptoms include inflamed gums, swelling, tooth pain, and fever. If you have an impacted wisdom tooth, you can experience headaches and recurring pain. Both dental problems undermine the quality of life.

  • Gum disease: Wisdom teeth emerge in the hard-to-reach area far back in your mouth. Your toothbrush may not reach and clean impacted wisdom teeth. It undermines oral health and increases the risk of gingivitis and gum disease.

  • Pericoronitis: Partially erupted wisdom teeth are susceptible to bacterial infection. The infection can worsen over time, leading to pericoronitis.

  • Tooth decay: If you don't remove a wisdom tooth with cavities, it can lead to widespread dental decay. Tooth decay increases the risk of bacterial infection.

Removing impacted, decayed, or misaligned wisdom teeth can eliminate these risks. To improve oral health and protect your well-being, get wisdom teeth extraction.
