I had to pay USD 200 (I have dental insurance) to get 3 wisdom teeth extracted with IV sedation.

My university has a school of dentistry and a hospital so I was able to use my student insurance to get my wisdom teeth (and basically any other dental procedure besides braces) done for free. There was going to be a charge for an anesthesiologist, but I opted for IV sedation which was free. IV sedation was perfect; I didn't feel anything but the needle to insert the IV and I don't remember anything. I definitely recommend it, especially if you are feeling anxious like I was.

My insurance covered my fully sedated wisdom teeth removal surgery! It took some time for the insurance to approve of it, but it did get taken care of!

I just had to pay a 50.00 copay insurance but it was so worth it; I got three extractions of wisdom tooth.

I've had 2 wisdom teeth removed. One on top, one impacted tooth below. My surgery took almost 2 hours and the dentist left a root because it was too risky to take out, it being too close to the nerves. It's been 7 days since my removal and I still feel a constant throbbing in my wound and wondering when it will stop.

Yes, my insurance covered everything including the cost of wisdom tooth removal.
