Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Amount: $1,300.00
Posted by: 269 in Bentonville, AR.Posted: July 27th, 2012 10:07AM
Which Tooth: 4 Wisdom teeth
I haven't gotten mine done yet. They have been hurting for about 3 years. I don't have good credit so I can't get any financing on the extraction. I can't afford insurance or to pay out of pocket. There are no dentists in my area that will do a payment plan, and no dentistry schools either. I don't know what to do and sometimes it's hard to concentrate because of the pain. Maybe I will just pull out 2 easier teeth to make room.

one tooth extracted and a partial made.
Amount: $1,235.00
Posted by: Patricia Le Porte in Honolulu, HI.Posted: January 13th, 2012 12:01PM
Which Tooth: lower left side
$1000 of the above amount was covered by insurance and I was made libel for $235. I really did not expect to go over the $1000 limit covered by insurance (Liberty Dental) but X-rays and extraction came to $400 . the remainder was for the partial. Unfortunatly, the partial does not fit. I have gone in for one refit ($90) and expect to be charged for the same amount for any further attempts at a refit. I believe I have made a mistake in going to this place, as I made it clear that I did not want to go over my $1000 limit and did not come away with a partial I can use.

Molar Extraction
Amount: $537.00
Posted by: Kristine in Kenai, AK.Posted: December 8th, 2011 01:12PM
Which Tooth: 31
Had a root canal when I was 11, which got infected. Had to drill through the crown twice before things got better. Eventually, the filling in the crown fell out and I was estimated $2,000 to fix the crown. Being in college I ignored the tooth. Two years later the crown finally fell off. Got the, of course compacted, tooth removed a few days ago costing $537.00 out of pocket. Insurance would only cover $20.00.

3 tooth extraction
Amount: $660.10
Posted by: NotSoHappyDentalCustomer in Warwick, .Posted: September 17th, 2011 01:09PM
Which Tooth: 1 wisdom 2 back tooth.
Seriously, dentist seem to make much more money then physicians! With dental plan, went in to remove 2 teeth originally, one was a wisdom teeth sideways and it was causing pain. The place recommended to remove a third because it was being held up between 2 teeth.
Used the gas to reduce pain.
I was told it would cost $310.50 for 3 tooth with the gas. Pretty expensive, almost $100 per tooth for just pulling tooth. With previous experience before, we thought well the gas is the most expensive so went along with it.
Once the tooths was pulled we get a SECOND bill 2 months down the road that said you OWE us an additional $349.60. You should have seen my face, $660 bucks for 3 tooth extractions?! thats $220 per tooth for a 20 min job! Keep in mind this IS WITH DENTAL INSURANCE!Apparently, they did not get the maximum amount they wanted from the dental insurance company and now we are getting billed the difference.
The statement we got from Delta Dental was they were billed for $1028.56 + 310.50(out of pocket payment) = $1,339.06!
The insurance covered a good portion since we were in network and they give discount to providers to be in there network.
Then the next month after we got our statement, we get a second dentist bill wanting an additional $349.60?!!!!
NEXT TIME NO GAS FOR ME! Just going to pop some extra aspirin and suck it up before a extraction.
*Note I did not get charged for pain killer (pills). After the procedure Thank you Blue Cross for the coverage at the pharmacy! that out of pocket expense was only $5.00

Which Tooth: all 4
$ out of pocket after "best dental insurance" California sucks cause those of us who work and support ourselves are burdened to pay extra for those slackers who live off the govt aka the working community.
$ included all 4 teeth, antibiotics and vicoden which they scringed on and gave me 15 pills. Wtf? They're supposed to be taken every 6 hours but by the end of 2 hours the pain begins to return.

tooth extraction
Amount: $175.00
Posted by: tina2001 in corsicana, TX.Posted: March 21st, 2011 07:03AM
The orginal price I was going to pay for 2 teeth extractions with nitrious was going to be 389.79. I went online shopping for dental plans not insurance. I found humanaonedental.com. I enrolled in it and the price for extractions were 65.00 each but the nitrious wasn't covered but that is fine since I saved over 200.00. Before you enroll in the humana dental plan just make sure there is a dentist in your area.

Molar Surgical Extraction
Amount: $142.00
Posted by: Jopa in Casselberry, FL.Posted: February 18th, 2011 08:02PM
Which Tooth: #30
Tooth #30 was cracked in half vertically past the gum line, due to untreated cavity and extensive decay. Dentist gave me 2 shots in the mouth just to make sure I was numb. Took around 15 mins to pull, it was so badly decayed that it came out in pieces. He got it all though and I didn't feel a thing. The actual cost was 119.00, $5 office visit fee, and $65 for antibiotic sack placed in the socket after extraction. Insurance of pays 50% for the extraction. So I ended up paying around $141 all together.

Single Tooth extraction
Amount: $150.00
Posted by: Colin F in Greencasle, IN.Posted: January 5th, 2011 10:01AM
Which Tooth: Bottom Back Right molar
I was quoted a price of 210-220 For a simple extraction. It included the x-ray, extraction and office visit. The dentist was kind enough to wave the office visit fee of $87. The whole thing went very smoothly, and he used laughing gas, which is very, very relaxing, there was no pain involved, and I am only slightly sore today with no pain meds and only slight swelling on my cheek. I do not have health insurance, so this was all out of pocket, but well worth it considering the pain I was in.
