Will Delta Insurance cover your treatment? Because the insurance plan for each family is unique, there is no simple way to answer this question. Coverage depends on the provider, the dental surgeon, and your current location, which can vary with each patient. You can get more information on the subject and whether the removal of your wisdom teeth is covered.

Pre-treatment estimate by Delta Dental

When a dental surgeon recommends the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, the first thing that comes to mind is how much this surgery will cost. Fortunately, Delta Dental offers a pre-treatment estimate to patients enrolled in their program, free of charge.

These costs are determined after reviewing the case using a diagnosis of the condition, x-rays, and the dentist’s proposed treatment plan. Payment is not always guaranteed, but the insurance company can use these details to determine the coverage that can be provided based on your benefits, deductible, eligibility, and your maximum annual payment.

The average cost of wisdom teeth removal

Simply removing an impacted third molar, also known as a wisdom tooth, can range from $75 to $200. If you remove all four wisdom teeth, the cost can range from $300 to $800, depending on the surgeon, the location, and the technique used to remove the teeth from their sockets.

Wisdom teeth can often cause complications that can limit your ability to eat or speak normally. You can visit one of our partner dentists, whether or not you have insurance or Medicaid – they are here to give you the quality dental care you need.
