Despite being a common procedure, dental surgeries are one of the most hated reasons for going to the dentist. Proper care and attention are always advised in order to prevent the need for surgery, as the time and cost is harmful to the individual.
The average costs for dental surgeries will differ for each common procedure, ranging anywhere between $75 to $450 for a regular tooth removal, with surgical teeth removal more expensive at $150 to $650. This is not a guaranteed price, however, and there are many other factors which will also either raise or decrease the total price. Some of these factors include which tooth needs to be treated, encompassing the geographical location and price regulations that are determined by the necessity of other procedures such as x-rays and scans. In the case of most surgeries, especially more minor ones such as cavity fillings for example, the costs may also be partially covered by health insurance if it is available to the patient. The price will also be modified by each individual practice and the location, whether it be in a more urban or suburban environment.
