    Default What is it with me and teeth this year?

    Barely a couple of months passed since my two root canals and crowns were done. Today I had a wisdom tooth pulled out. Oh all of the anticipation and talking about it with my pain loving doctor. In the end it took 5 seconds for the sucker to come out. It chipped off on me last night and the good doc said the tooth needs to come out since there is a cavity there and there is no reason to deal with that.

    Spider, please kindly respond on my doc's reasoning and how much YOU would charge for pulling a large wisdom tooth?

    Thanks!

    If the tooth came out in 5 seconds, it was a simple extraction, which means it wasn't impacted and no additional surgery was needed. My fee for that would be $148. If an x-ray was taken, that's another $28. But remember, I don't pay New York rent and other expenses, and I'm a general dentist, not an oral surgeon, although it sounds like you went to a general dentist for this.
    I wouldn't be surprised if it cost around $250 or more in the city. Next time, come and see me.

    He charged me $240 and he did X Ray three other of my wisdom teeth as well and some more teeth. Its just that his office is 10 minutes from where I live.
