Broken Tooth
Amount: $580.00
Posted by: David Dickinson in Sydney, Other.Posted: June 29th, 2009 01:06AM
Which Tooth: Second from back, bottom
My tooth had broken in half, due to my molers coming through. I went to see my dentist and he just started to fix it. Last time I paid $340.00. The lady at reception thought I had medical insurance and charged me $580.00. I explained that was not the case, she checked my file again and prceeded to charge me the medical insurence cost not the non insured cost. I questioned her, she replied that was the cost. I got riped off, cause some one was lazy , and didn't read my imformation properly.

This included the x-ray, exam, shots to deaden the area. I had to pay out of pocket then they submit the claim to my insurance company. The cashier told me I should get refunded around $215.

Old Root Canal Extracted
Amount: $517.00
Posted by: ToothyGurl in Houston, TX.Posted: June 11th, 2009 05:06PM
Which Tooth: First Molar
Got a root canal at 10. They Put in a temporary filling but my mom never took me back for it to be capped. 15 years later (07) Filling fell out. In 09 tooth cracked vertically and I also notice within the toothe the dentist did not clean out all the decay. In addition, my third molar has a big hole in it and BOTH were infected but the second molar was causing so much pain!! the extraction was only 239 but with the bone grafting and x-rays all togethor 517 (out my pocket). ( no insurance!). He wanted me to remove the third molar first but it wasnt causing any pain, plus I told him I dont have 3,870 to pull out my A** for wanting to remove my 3rd molar and a bone graft, make a bridge, do cosmetic surgery, and blah blah blah. the one that was hurting me is the one I wanted OUT. As for my third molar, Ill just go to the school of dentistry for that one...or Mexico. 75% cheaper.

extraction of one tooth
Amount: $2,100.00
Posted by: dave13 in Springdale, AR.Posted: May 19th, 2009 02:05AM
Which Tooth: bicuspid #20
I had one infected tooth and was in pain. I was unemployed without any health insurance. Sharma demanded full payment before extraction. I only had $900 in savings so had some difficulty raising money. However did a good job of tooth extraction (under general anaesthetic) in 2006. Price seemed like a ripoff however was oral surgeon MD. I had to pay $3000 for my mother's funeral in 2007. Almost committed suicide in 2007.

All wisdoms extracted in NJ
Amount: $150.00
Posted by: a user in Cherry Hill, NJ.Posted: March 30th, 2009 12:03PM
Which Tooth: upper and lower wisdoms
I only had to pay $150 out of pocket along with a $40 co-pay to have 4 wisdom teeth extracted and a broken 2nd premolar on the lower jaw extracted as well. 2 of the wisdom teeth were impacted, the other 2 were fully erupted with no impact. My health insurance paid for the impacted teeth and the broken tooth. My dental insurance paid for the other 2 wisdoms that were not impacted so out of pocket I only had to shell over $190. Thank god for health and dental.
Health insurance = Amerihealth
Dental insurance = delta dental of NJ

surgical extraction
Amount: $210.00
Posted by: april e in chattanooga, TN.Posted: March 11th, 2009 04:03PM
Which Tooth: lower left molar
I have been quoted 210, but I have insurance an I find out how much I'll pay out of pocket tomorrow. The visit including xrays was 10. Also I'm having a root canal and crown done on a front tooth the reception said but services should total 400 to 500 but with insurance it'll be cheaper. My big problem is my upper molar the root is pressing unto my sinus cavity, its going to cost 40 bucks just to see the oral surgeon, but this will be a medical bill not dental and I don't have a quote just yet.

Extraction
Amount: $281.00
Posted by: Charlie in Brea,Ca, CA.Posted: March 5th, 2009 02:03AM
Which Tooth: #31
Had very badly infected tooth.Went to new Dental group that my wife chose when she signed up with new HMO. Co-pay for surgical extraction was supposed to be $5 with insurance. New dentist insisted/demanded that I would have to have bone graft after extraction even though it was in the far back next to where wisdom was removed 30 yrs. ago. That would cost an extra $550 out of my pocket or he wouldn't pull it. Told him to stick his graft. What a scam. Since I was in no mood for a road trip to Ensenada,I drove 1/2 mile down the street and paid dentist $281 to pull it.Wouldv'e been $5 but I couldn't wait a month for HMO to change "CARE PROVIDER".

Which Tooth: #13
15 yr old crown broke off with prep inside at gum level with post sticking out. Was sugically removed and bone grafting material inserted for later tooth implant. students at UNC did a so-far so-good, no-complication, job for what was probably a very fair charge with hope of further work after it heals.

Tooth extraction
Amount: $1,045.00
Posted by: DCBCHAS in Charleston, SC.Posted: January 5th, 2009 12:01PM
Which Tooth: #18
Tooth had vertically cracked after having root canal and crown. Dentist in Charleston, SC charged $ 1045 for surgical extraction and tissue regeneration. Insurance recognized that $ 225 is fair price for extraction and did NOT recognize the regeneration cost. Hence -they paid $160 feel ripped off by dentist... never a position to negotiate when your face is numbed up and you have a bleeding socket in your gums.

go to Mexico
Amount: $35.00
Posted by: clay in monterey, CA.Posted: December 18th, 2008 07:12AM
Which Tooth: any/all
For 4 years now I have been going to Algodones, MX to the same dentist. It is 6 miles from Yuma, AZ. You park your car on US soil and walk 300 yards to the dentist. Extractions: $35 each. Root canal: $250. Bridge (1 tooth or 3 unit) $600. Dentures: top and bottom $400. (Requires 2 trips). Fillings: $60. Crowns: $200. Veneers $275 each. This gives you an idea of the costs involved. This tiny border town has 300 dentists and they are as good as or better than the average US dentist. I have received excellent dental care from my dentist. US dentists make $30-$40K a day. That is outrageous. There is no red tape in Algodones..no "consultation fees) and all that nonsense. It is modern, up to date, etc. You can have most work done in 2 days (root canal and crown, etc). Do a search for "dentists in Algodones, MX" and see for yourself. My periodontist there graduated from UCLA.

SON HAS NO INSURANCE/IMPACTED WISDOMS
Amount: $700.00
Posted by: User in Calif in OC, CA.Posted: December 12th, 2008 09:12AM
Which Tooth: WISDOM TEETH
My son has an impacted wisdom tooth that causes him much pain and suffering. The other wisdoms haven't created this much problem but he doesn't have medical insurance. His job doesn't offer it and at current the amount it would cost him to get the extraction would be around $700 as it is impacted and there is bone involved. He talks on the phone to customers all day and it interferes with his speaking not to mention makes him sick. I feel horrible about it because I'm not working and have no savings to be able to stretch my budget to help him. If he has the procedure done he has to take a few days off of work and that will cut into his pay as well. I'm encouraging him to save as much money as he can but his pay is not that much and it will be months before he can have anything done. I get really peeved about this.There are people in the USA who get low cost/no cost medical and meanwhile those working to barely get by, get nothing. Does anyone know of a low cost reputable dentist in southern calif? I appreciate what the user from the UK said of having NHS in place that helps people there. It isn't a perfect system but when you have to fully pay out of pocket it is nice to have something in place that helps with the costs. I believe every LEGAL citizen has a right to free medical care IF they cannot pay. This doesn't mean everything should be mandatory and socialized but when it comes to peoples' health we already pay tons in taxes and get little in return to show for it. M.O.

Wisdom Tooth pulle
Amount: $5.00
Posted by: A user in the UK in The UK, Other.Posted: December 5th, 2008 01:12PM
Which Tooth: wisdom tooth
Needed to have my wisdom tooth pulled in the UK. I wasn't registered with a dentist at the time (otherwise It would have been free) so I had to call and make an emergency appointment at the dental hospital in Glasgow.

They took me in, gave me an X-Ray, identified the problem (wisdom tooth growing at an angle and pushing the teeth in front) Shot me up full of anaesthetic and pulled it.

From phonecall to extraction about 5 hours. Because it was an emergency at the hospital, and not an emergency appointment at my registered dentist (I had none) I had to pay for the extraction. The total cost was 3.04 (around US$5)

Browsing a couple of posts here, I think most British people don't realise how lucky we are to have the NHS (National Health Service) when I see how much a simple procedure like this can cost in the US

10 teeth pulled
Amount: $1,350.00
Posted by: Heriberto R. in Saint Louis, MO.Posted: September 13th, 2008 01:09AM
Which Tooth: remaining 10 lower
So I just got dentures I'm 23 and well I'm still in pain.I forgot what the total cost without insurance was, but I ended paying 1350; that's including the dentures. I believe the insurance covered most of the extractions. The process took about 40-45 minutes but it felt like forever. Had a few stitches out in. I just hope my upper teeth aren't that bad.
