Severe dental pain or a damaged tooth may necessitate emergency dentistry treatment, but the last thing you want to worry about is emergency tooth extraction cost. While the first goal for any dentist is to save your natural tooth, in some cases, extraction may be the only viable solution. Fortunately, gentle techniques and nitrous oxide sedation can take much of the stress out of this procedure.
At Chisholm Trail Smile Center, Dr. Matthew Bridges offers affordable care and multiple financing options. If you are suffering a dental emergency, contact us immediately for the urgent care you need.
When is tooth extraction necessary?
There are several situations in which tooth removal is the best emergency option:
- Dental decay has spread too far to repair your tooth with a filling or crown.
- A dental infection has become too severe for root canal therapy.
- You have a dental infection and a weakened immune system, which may disqualify you from root canal therapy.
- Due to jawbone recession, your tooth no longer has sufficient support.
- You have an impacted tooth, meaning the tooth has not come in on time, is erupting in the wrong place, or is blocked from coming in all the way.
The Cost of Urgent Tooth Removal
A standard tooth extraction typically costs between $150 and $300 per tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, you will require oral surgery to remove gum or jawbone tissue. As a result, extraction will cost more with a price range between $225 and $2,300.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the final total of tooth extraction. Considerations include:
- Any x-rays needed prior to extraction
- Whether you choose sedation
- The number of teeth being removed
- The complexity of a surgical extraction
Another consideration is the type of restoration you choose to replace your extracted tooth. At Chisholm Trail Smile Center, we offer a full range of restorative solutions, including bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Dr. Bridges and our office team will be happy to discuss these options and help you select the one that fits your budget.
Insurance and Financing
Dental insurance usually covers all or part of the cost of an emergency extraction. Our office is in-network with Health Choice and Delta Premier, but we also file claims with other insurance companies. Even if you have an out-of-network plan, it can significantly cut down on your personal costs.
If you do not have insurance or you need additional financial assistance, we have several other financing options available. In addition to cash and personal check, we accept all major credit cards. We also offer financing through CareCredit®, a third-party institution that specializes in financing for medical and dental procedures.
Finally, we proudly provide Kleer® In-House Financing. When you set up a membership plan, you can make regular payments directly to our office in exchange for discounts and other incentives.
