Dr. Meredith Levine and her team can answer all of these questions surrounding an emergency dental extraction. Dr. Levine will happily answer any questions you may have before getting a tooth extracted.
How Much Will a Tooth Extraction Cost?
Whether you live in Century City, California, or any other city around the world, the cost of a dental extraction will vary significantly depending on several factors:
- The Procedure: The cost of an extraction will depend on what kind of extraction is required. A surgical extraction will take more time, require more tools, and cost more than a simple extraction.
- The Dentist/Oral Surgeon: The cost of your dental bill varies from one dental practice to another, so there should be no surprise that the same goes for extractions. Typically, the more experienced your doctor is, the higher the cost. Whatever the fee increase may be, you still want to make sure you are seeing a dentist or oral surgeon who is reputable and trusted to do the procedure safely and correctly.
- Insurance: In a perfect world, we would all have excellent dental insurance that covers most, if not all, the procedures and treatments we need. However, you know this is not the reality. Some patients have dental insurance while others do not. And those who do have dental insurance will enjoy different levels of coverage. You will want to consult with your dentist or oral surgeon and with your dental insurer to verify what fees will be covered and what will be coming out of your pocket.
