Baby tooth extraction cost

Monday, Oct. 19th 2009 12:10 PM

Cost of having a baby tooth extraction

My daughter will be going into braces but has to have a baby tooth extracted.  I do not have dental insurance yet for the extraction but the braces will be covered by that time.  I tried calling few dentist to get a idea of cost for the extraction since this will be something I will need to pay for.  The few dental offices I called could not or would not give me prices without making appointment.  I need to know how much a baby tooth extraction will cost.   Any cost idea would be helpful to me.

    The problem you may have with getting a quote from a dental office, without seeing them first, is they do not know what you may need to have done. Quoting you one price over the phone based on what you said you may need, can change once you come in based on what you may really need.

    You can get a range of cost based on a state average, but I am do not know what state you are in to give you that information. You can however, go to http://www.insurancecompany.com key in your zip code and review their plans. Some of the plans give you state average pricing.

    To get exact pricing you may need to go to at least one dentist for their review. This may cost you. From there will have the ADA codes for the services that they say you will need to have done.

    Dental offices will give you prices if you know your ADA codes. When you do not have the ADA codes and just say you a tooth pulled they do not have enough information in order to give you a price quote.

    This sounds the same as I ran into. I called a dentist I had not been too before and they said I needed to bring my little one in. What gives? Are the dentist hiding the cost or just making it up as they go along?
