Oral surgery is a very normal way for dentists to treat both common and unusual dental problems. Although the actual cost of dental surgery can be high, knowing the average cost of oral surgery can help you plan for how much you may need to pay for your child’s care.
A dentist may recommend that your child see an oral surgeon for a number of reasons, including an existing dental problem or one that could develop in the future if left untreated. Here are the average costs for some common oral surgery procedures:
Talk to a dentist or oral surgeon about the cost of your child’s care to determine the true cost. Because the price of surgery depends on many different factors, you can’t know for certain what you’ll have to pay without speaking with the provider.
Many factors that impact the final cost of oral surgery include:
In many cases, insurance coverage will help cover at least part of the cost of oral surgery. Many plans offer assistance for simple and surgical tooth removal and may offer coverage for implants or crowns as well.
To see what your dental insurance plan covers, speak with your insurance provider or your child’s dentist before the procedure.
