Unfortunately, sometimes wisdom teeth need to be removed. That’s why we offer wisdom teeth removal Perth residents can trust.

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

The procedure for wisdom teeth removal varies depending on the case’s complexity.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost

Wisdom teeth removal costs range between $220-$480 per tooth based on several factors, including the complexity of the extraction and the type of procedure required.

Simple extractions, where the tooth is easily accessible, typically fall towards the lower end of the price range.

However, surgical extractions, which involve cutting into the gum and removing bone, may incur higher costs due to their increased complexity.

We believe in offering quality care at affordable prices, ensuring you receive the treatment you need without financial surprises.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to emerge and typically come through between the ages of 17 and 25.​

Most individuals have four wisdom teeth. Two on the top and two on the bottom at the back of the mouth. These back teeth, also known as third molars, may erupt without any problems but they can also be impacted.

Impacted wisdom teeth are a result of misaligned jaw orientation or insufficient space to erupt. When wisdom teeth are impacted, a variety of complications can occur, making it important to schedule a dental visit immediately to prevent further issues.
