 I've had friends who have had that happen and my cousin I believe did too. They removed them and all was well again. I'm sure it's pretty typical of any removal in terms of cost. I would call around ask or if you have insurance, then look up the cost share/cost.

My dd had 2 sets of baby and 2 sets of adult for the same tooth.
They pulled both babies and we go on the 18th for X-rays with the orthodontist to see which of the adult to pull.
I believe with insurance , the two babies cost $173 to pull

I thought my dd would need removal, but after a few months the baby teeth popped out. Maybe your sons will too?

 If it comes down to it and you can't afford what the dentists in your area quote you for, then you may be able to do Care Credit. Good luck and it will be okay :)
