    Default Wisdom tooth removal cost

    I found out today I need a top right wisdom tooth removed - this is horrifying to me as I have a massive fear of dentists.

    I can get it done in the chair or I can get it removed under sedation by an oral surgeon.

    Does anyone have any idea the cost of an oral surgeon removal? Its not impacted and not hurting so I have time to decide. Can you ring and get them to quote?

    If it's not urgent you could go public?

    I guess depending on waiting time - there is decay under the gum and my filing has fallen out so I'm not sure how long it may be till it needs doing. I assume because its through its not impacted?

    I had all 4 out under general and with my private health I was still out of pocket almost $2000. Dh had his out years ago in the chair and it was only a few hundred per tooth. Hth.

    Default Wisdom tooth removal cost

    I had mine out 2 weeks ago 😄
    I had all 4 done, by an oral surgeon in rooms in Sydney under IV sedation , it honestly was painless and I don't remember a thing , recovery was good but just annoying as you can't eat properly for a few weeks , mine was $2200 for 4 teeth plus $465 for the anaesthesiologist - you could call them for a basic quote but they really need to do an X-ray so they can see how bad/good they all are

    I recently had my top right pulled out while I was awake. It was around $200. To be absolutely honest I felt no pain, just felt pressure and heard the sound. I actually laughed once it was finally pulled out. Haha.
    I also heard the recovery pain is worse after being put to sleep because they are more rough, however while awake they are more gentle. (I went back to work after having that 1 pulled out and had no pain afterwards whatsoever).
    Also you can have medication to relax you at the dentist (it's this tube you breath in, it's around $70).

    Hmm I was just reading similar sentiments on good ole google! I think I will wait and see my Dentist (hopefully it will hold out - shes on maternity leave at the moment. She has all my x-rays and opg scan thing so I'm hoping she can assess the level of complication.

    Do you notice the whole thats been left? How long did it take to get used to it - I've had them for 20yrs so can't imagine them not being there.
