What factors impact the cost of removal?
The cost of removing wisdom teeth takes several factors into consideration including the stage of development of the tooth, its position, and the degree of impaction (soft tissue impaction, partial bony impaction and full impaction).
Soft Tissue Impaction
When wisdom teeth that are surrounded by soft gum tissue.
Partial Hard Tissue Impaction
This means that at least part of the top or “coronal” portion of the tooth lies within the jawbone. The complexity of this work will mean that the costs of removal are higher.
A full-bony impaction, also called a complete impaction, is where the wisdom tooth is entirely encased by bone tissue. Wisdom teeth that are full impacted require a complex extraction. In most cases the tooth is divided in to multiple parts to make the extraction less traumatic.
