The Cost Of Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Pricing for wisdom teeth removal varies depending on the level of impaction. You will first come in for a consult that includes an $80 panoramic X-ray and a $20 exam fee. Based on this information, our dentist can estimate the cost of your procedure. Keep in mind that sedation will increase the cost of treatment. Our dental practice accepts most insurance plans, and we also offer CareCredit® financing to help break your cost into manageable, monthly payments.
The Many Benefits Of Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom tooth removal is often covered at least partially by insurance. However, if you leave your wisdom tooth unchecked and further problems develop, the need for treatments like orthodontics could cost you far more than wisdom tooth removal.
Protect Your Oral Health
Your wisdom teeth are in the very back of your mouth, making it more difficult to brush and floss them properly. This lack of proper oral hygiene can cause bacteria to build up around the wisdom tooth and lead to tooth decay and painful gum infections.
When your wisdom teeth are impacted, it can cause pain to the surrounding teeth and make chewing difficult. Wisdom tooth extraction can help you relieve the pain that impacted teeth are causing by pushing against your adjacent teeth.

Wisdom Tooth Removal What To Expect During Your Procedure
Day of Oral Surgery
"Our Orland Park practice offers sedation for patients who feel anxious about wisdom tooth removal."
Do I Need to Replace My Extracted Wisdom Teeth?
No! While it definitely pays to consider a dental implant-supported replacement for any other permanent tooth, you don't need your wisdom teeth for proper oral function or health. Of course, if an impacted wisdom tooth has compromised a neighboring tooth to the point of needing replacement, we can create a plan incorporating dental implants and more to completely restore the health, balance, function, and appearance of your smile.
Anxious About Treatment? WE OFFER SEDATION
Dentists at our Orland Park, IL, office offers sedation options during wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, and other procedures for optimal comfort. Patients can choose from oral sedatives or IV sedation. We also work alongside a board-certified anesthesiologist when necessary. Dental visits do not have to be stressful. Ask your doctor which option is right for you.

Preventing Dry Sockets
HOW TO AVOID THIS PAINFUL SIDE EFFECT
A dry socket occurs when the blood clot covering the treatment area is either dislodged or dissolves too soon, exposing the underlying bone and nerves. This exposure causes intense pain for the patient. You can prevent this painful side effect by following your dentist's aftercare instructions and avoiding actions like drinking through a straw, brushing the extraction site, and eating crunchy foods for the first 24-48 hours following the extraction.
The Side Effects Of Wisdom Teeth Removal
Our dental team will provide patient education during your wisdom teeth removal consultation to make sure you understand how to take the right aftercare measures. It's important to know which side effects of wisdom teeth removal are normal, and which signal the need for medical intervention. Let's take a look:
You may feel minor discomfort following your procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Any pain post-operation should diminish within a few days.
Swelling and bruising are common side effects for the first few days following the extraction. Over-the-counter medication and a cold compress should help reduce any swelling or bruising.
We will give you gauze to take home following your extraction. Switch out this gauze regularly to help aid in blood clot formation.
A bad taste in your mouth could be a sign of a dry socket. Contact our practice right away if you notice a bad taste or intense pain near the extraction site.
Contact our dental practice right away if you develop a fever, have intense pain, or you have difficulty swallowing. These side effects could be warning signs of complications. You should also contact us if you have severe pain that does not subside with medication or swelling that worsens after the third or fourth day.
