Price of wisdom tooth removal

Published on:2019-1-25

    Because of their latest eruptions and backmost positions, wisdom teeth are more susceptible to impaction and inflammation. Some wonder whether they can just leave their wisdom teeth alone.

    In effect, ignoring the issue is definitely not the solution. It’s fine to keep your wisdom teeth in mouth if they erupt fully in desirable positions, which is rare. If not, you’d better get a check-up and seek a timely extraction to stop further suffering. In general, wisdom teeth get inflamed at the time when your body is relatively week, like getting a cold, on a menstrual period or during pregnancy. That is set to bring about a lot of pain and inconvenience for your life. 

    According to dentists from AKJ Dental Hospital, indeed the extraction of wisdom teeth will be harder to operate. And typically it’s harder to remove maxillary ones than mandibular ones. As for the specific treatment plan, it cannot be decided until a thorough check-up is run to get a full diagnosis. The more difficult the operation is, the higher the cost will be. It ranges from 800 to 3000 yuan.

    When it comes to the number of wisdom teeth, it varies from person to person as well, ranging from zero to four. The more wisdom teeth that you need to extract, the more you need to pay for it. But it doesn’t sound quite advisable to delay extracting your wisdom teeth out merely because of the cost. The earlier you get them out, the earlier you will be free from the trouble they cause.

    With local anesthesia applied, the process of removing wisdom teeth is almost painless. As the anesthetic effect fades away after the surgery, you may start to feel pain and discomfort, which is normal. The wound is supposed to heal within about a week. If the pain is rather severe, you can take pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs for mitigation. Strictly follow the instructions of your dentist and take good care of yourselves after the removal.
