No one looks forward to wisdom teeth removal. Undergoing surgery and recovery costs time, causes pain, and gets in the way of living our lives.
One of the most frequently given reasons for postponing or avoiding wisdom teeth removal until the pain becomes unbearable is that wisdom teeth removal costs too much. Simple extraction of wisdom teeth can cost $99 per tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cost between $230 and $340 or higher per tooth. Frequently dental insurance carriers and medical insurance providers may cover only a portion of the cost of wisdom teeth removal.
No Cost Wisdom Teeth Removal
Jean Brown Research has eliminated cost as a factor in wisdom teeth removal. Jean Brown Research is conducting a clinical research study for an investigational pain medication after wisdom teeth removal.
Qualified participants in the study will receive medical care, removal surgery, and investigational pain medication at no charge. Additionally, participants will also be compensated for time and travel related to the study.
Delaying Wisdom Teeth Removal Could Hurt You
Once cost has been removed as an obstacle for wisdom teeth removal what remains are the benefits of the procedure. Wisdom teeth removal prevents pain and complications that can result when wisdom teeth are not removed and become:
Misaligned – When wisdom teeth are misaligned, they may position themselves horizontally, be angled toward or away from the second molars, or be angled inward or outward. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves.
Impacted – Wisdom teeth also can be impacted – they are enclosed within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone or only partially break through or erupt through the gum. Partial eruption of the wisdom teeth allows an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection, which results in pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness. Partially erupted teeth are also more prone to tooth decay and gum disease because their hard-to-reach location and awkward positioning makes brushing and flossing difficult.
Crowded – Wisdom teeth in the upper jaw have a tendency to lean sideways and grate against the cheek. This may cause ulcers on the cheek and chewing problems. The pressure from wisdom teeth may also force the other teeth closer together and interfere with a person’s bite. Cysts are other complications of crowded wisdom teeth.
