The cost of extracting wisdom teeth can range between $75 and $200 per tooth to extract an erupted tooth and between $225 and $600 for an impacted tooth. The range is $1,000 to $3,000 or higher to have four teeth pulled in one appointment, notes CostHelper. Patients usually require an initial exam before an extraction, which can range from $50 to $350, and X-rays, which can cost between $20 and $250. Patients need to ask if the price quoted for any extraction includes those costs. Dental school clinics offer reduced rates for services performed by students under supervision or by faculty.
