Single tooth extraction
Amount: $205.00
Posted by: EricH in , NA.Posted: December 13th, 2010 02:12PM
Which Tooth: #13
Tooth number 13 pulled and a post put in for an implant. Cost of the consultation / x-ray / extraction was $205. My insurance paid 70% of it, since it was considered required work. The cost of the post for the implant was ~$900, insurance covering 50% since the adjacent teeth are in good shape, and the surgeon recommended an implant over a bridge in my case.

Molar Extraction pt.2
Amount: $128.00
Posted by: JM2010 in Westwood, CA.Posted: November 28th, 2010 11:11PM
Which Tooth: Bottom Left Molar 2
So Originally I said it would be about $285 and I expected to pay out of pocket about 185. I paid $45 for the consultation, $20 for the x-ray for 1 tooth, and $63 for the tooth to be gone. The grand total was only $128!! Pain meds are great too! Add $20 for Vicoden, Tylenol 3, 600mg Ibuprofen, and Antibiotics all to last for about a month!

Molar Extraction
Amount: $245.00
Posted by: Walter C, in Houston, TX.Posted: November 21st, 2010 09:11AM
Which Tooth: Upper Left molar 14
At first it was $195.00, but because the surgeon had to use stitches, a very friendly $50.00 was added. I don't have insurance, so I paid the total cost out of my pocket. I may go to Mexico for a better deal for all the rest...$5,500.00
For the record: I was expecting more pain that what I got.

Which Tooth: Btm left molar 2
I've been to the UCLA school of dentristry before as a finals exam patient where I had teeth filled and 1 extraction at no cost to me. I'm going in at the end of the month to have a tooth pulled. They will give you a discount if you pay with cash. You know, ... that stuff people used to give to pay for things. It's normally up to $285, but I should expect a bill up to $185 max (w/o insurance).
Consultation = 145
Extraction = 70-100

Extraction @ tooth #14, 3 tooth Bridge attached to 2 previous root canals/post and core teeth
Amount: $3,250.00
Posted by: Marla in Moorestown, NJ.Posted: October 28th, 2010 12:10PM
Which Tooth: #14 top left 2nd to last
I had a crack at one of the roots of tooth #14. Had a laser gum procedure and bonding of tooth in New York City @ a cost of $525, and failed. Dentist was suggesting a root canal and hemisection, which was expensive and compromised the tooth. Instead, my NJ dentist suggested extracting #14 and getting a permanent 3 tooth bridge to attach to teeth on either side, both of which had already had root canals and post and cores. Cost in NY=$525 for extraction/ Bridge $4800=$5325. Cost in NJ=$250 for extraction/Bridge=$3000=$3250. Cost difference from NY to NJ=$2075!!!!!!
Having work done in NJ!!!!!!

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Amount: $2,100.00
Posted by: MarinParent in Corte Madera, CA.Posted: October 12th, 2010 12:10PM
Which Tooth: Four wisdom teeth
We live in Marin County CA, so nothing is cheap. My kid had four teeth pulled - three easy, one slightly impacted. The dentist was well recommended but acted like a car salesman when it came to discussing sedation. In encouraging us to get sedated, he said "in three years he has not had one patient that has not been sedated" and "by the third noocaine shot, most people wish they had gone for the sedation." We did not buy this unethical sell job and my kid had the teeth removed without being sedated. It took 20 minutes and it was not painful! We saved over $500. If your dentist does not mention the option of not being sedated, I would watch out!

Tooth Extraction
Amount: $375.00
Posted by: User in Vernon, NJ in Highland Lakes, NJ.Posted: August 25th, 2010 02:08AM
Which Tooth: molar lower left
Due to an eating disorder when I was a teen, I lost most of the enamal on my teeth. I have had several teeth pulled over the years. I have three broken teeth right now. I am in severe pain all the time. had one pulled about 3 weeks ago. However, the other 2 are now abscessed and because I have no dental insurance I can't do anything about this severe pain. Removing these 2 teeth would require a new partial which the dentist said would cost over $2500.00. I evidently make to much money to qualify (not even close)for Medicade but it really doesn't matter because America doesn't cover dental and it really should. If infections get into blood streams it is a huge health risk.

Tooth Extraction
Amount: $416.00
Posted by: Elissa in Chicago, IL.Posted: July 2nd, 2010 09:07PM
Which Tooth: #30 (1st molar)
The tooth had cracked vertically under the crown. My dentist said it might break during extraction, so he referred me to an oral surgeon. It was hard to remove this tooth, as it did break and the surgeon had to drill several times to dislodge it from the gum. He really had to work at it hard. It took about 25 minutes, more time than a previous extraction. The office demanded 50% up front, so I paid $208 today and they will bill the insurance. So the entire cost was $416.

Extraction
Amount: $231.00
Posted by: a user in Denton, TX.Posted: June 22nd, 2010 06:06PM
Which Tooth: 1 & 2
I was in a tremendous amount of pain when I cracked my wisdom tooth and it got infected. Also, my molar tooth in front of the infected wisdom tooth was in pretty bad shape and had been for months. Though, the molar wasn't infected, the dentist said it would be best to extract both. Cost was supposed to be $200.00 per tooth.$400.00 total. Both teeth came out in under 10 minutes and with no complications. The dentist ended up charging me only $231.00 for both teeth. This was a huge relief since I have no insurance and a payment plan was not an option.

Three lower Molars extracted
Amount: $234.80
Posted by: MorganMax in Las Cruces, NM.Posted: June 7th, 2010 09:06AM
Which Tooth: 18, 19, 20
I hadn't had my teeth looked at in 5 years due to not having insurance. My employer took advantage of a low income state plan back in Feb and I had a major toothache in May. Turned out three of my teeth had decayed to the pulp and couldn't be saved--they even had to give me three shots to get the mouth numb enough to get the #20 out.
While it has a total cap of 1,200 the state assisted insurance payed for 60% of my tooth extraction and I had no problem with dry sockets afterword. Looking around this cost is pretty much average for this area of New Mexico and on par with Dental Plans.

31 teeth in prep for top and bottom dentures
Amount: $2,520.00
Posted by: Sweet Sue in Parkersburg WV, WV.Posted: May 11th, 2010 01:05PM
Which Tooth: all 31
Due to being on antibiotics constantly all my life among other medications I am having to get my teeth pulled and get dentures.

I was expecting to spend $2000.00 for them and was shocked when the bill came for $4420

I am disabled and Medicare nor Medicaid will help with this cost. I am someone who worked 16 to 20 hours a day before I was injured (and loved it) and now it saddens me to have to go to friends and family to ask for money to help for medical treatment but, since it is making my health worse because of the infection it is something that has to be done. America really needs to consider dental and vision and medical coverage as something every citizen has a right to no matter what their financial standing.

Tooth Extraction
Amount: $223.00
Posted by: User in Bellefonte, PA in Bellefonte, PA.Posted: April 10th, 2010 05:04PM
Which Tooth: #19 (bottom left molar)
Cost to remove infected bottom left molar: $223 out-of-pocket, no insurance. Includes the actual extraction, injections of lidocaine, and one x-ray. I was told I had extra curvy roots so it was at the high end of the extraction quote ($130-200). I was quoted about $500 to get an implant to fill the gap, which I will do some other time.
