  • Every state is different. and it also depends on if you need to be put to sleep to have it fdone.  I had 4 impacted ones come in at one time and had all 4 taken out at once......No it did not hurt, yes they put me to sleep for it and it was 20 years ago  so the price would be relevant to you now. Insurance usually pays for the majorty of it if your lucky enough to have dental insurance.  If it's only 2 wisdom teeth? Ide say the cost could run from 200 to 600  it could be less.....call the local dentits in your area and get prices.

  • it cost me about $300 NZ and it wasn't painful because your numbed up. It was worth it to relieve the agony i was in before it came out.I was hungry though cause i couldn't eat for a couple of days, just soup.

  • my insurance covered it but i believe the removal of impacted lower wisdom teeth was around $800.00 usd in 2003 and i had my upper wisdom teeth removed in 1999 and i have no idea how much that cost. it didn't hurt per se, but then i began taking arnica tincture and homeopathic tablets about a week to two weeks before the surgery.

    i was awake with local anesthetic for the uppers and under general anesthetic for the lowers.
