Need your wisdom teeth removed? We can do that here in-house for a low cost. It’s important to choose the right clinic for the job, because most dentists don’t perform wisdom teeth removal. Typically, after the initial exam, they refer you to an oral surgeon. How many dentists do you want to see just to get a bad tooth out?
We can’t perform every case that comes to us, but we can take care of over 95% of cases that come in. We can also do it cheaper than many clinics. Our prices are approximately half of what most oral surgeons charge.
In the majority of people, wisdom teeth serve very little purpose: they’re hard to keep clean with a toothbrush, they cause gum infections, they cause damage to adjacent teeth, etc. If your wisdom teeth are causing you problems, we can help.
Please give us a call at 512-351-9313 to make an appointment with Dr. Tom Supakorndej. We’ll take good care of you.
What problems can wisdom teeth cause?
- Wisdom teeth on the top can cause localized pain if they get cavities on them.
- Wisdom teeth on the top can press against the gums on the jaw, causing pain in the back region of the mouth.
- Wisdom teeth on the bottom tend to cause gum infections. Food tends to get trapped in the gum pockets and can’t be cleaned. This leads to bad breath and foul taste in your mouth.
- When lower wisdom teeth cause more severe gum disease (a condition called “periodontitis“), a person may experience pain in other areas of the face. They may experience difficulty opening the jaw (a condition called “trismus“) If the infection is more severe, there may be pain radiating the side of her face – from the bottom of the jaw to the top side of her face. The wisdom teeth MUST come out immediately once this happens.
If you need your wisdom teeth removed, we are able to help. We are able to remove the vast majority of wisdom teeth we see without having to refer to the oral surgeon. This saves you time and money. And of course, sedation is available should you feel like you need it.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction Prices
Wisdom teeth can grow in all sorts of angles. A few come out normally, while others like to grow sideways. What does it cost to extract a wisdom tooth? The price depends on the nature of the extraction, and the doctor has to see the tooth and the X-rays. Wisdom teeth often cost more than regular to remove, because there are many vital structures (arteries, nerves, etc.) near them. It takes a very skilled surgeon to perform these procedures.
We at Diamond Dental: Family And Implant Dentistry have been known to be less expensive than most clinics for wisdom teeth removal in Austin, Texas. Many patients come to us after they’ve seen the bill from another clinic. If you’ve been to another clinic and are outraged at their prices, bring your treatment plan to us. We’ll do our best to beat their prices.
