Many patients want to know ‘How much does it cost to take a tooth out?”. We have always provided a quote that includes the consultation, x-ray and, depending on the difficulty of the extraction, a price range. We’ve listened to you, simplified things and then made it affordable.
At Smile Time Family Dental, we’ve made it easy. $199 for an emergency visit to remove a simple tooth; $299 to remove a difficult tooth. No hidden consult costs or x-rays. What’s the catch you might ask? This doesn’t apply to wisdom teeth (we have our own promos for them anyway) and you have to have the treatment done on the same day as the consultation. If you want to go home and think about it, then you’ll be charged the normal consultation and x-ray fee on the first day and the normal extraction rate will apply for the next visit. If you have private health insurance with dental extras cover and they rebate at least $199 (or $299 for difficult teeth), then there’s no gap to pay.
What’s the difference between a simple extraction and a difficult one?
A simple extraction is when the tooth comes out in 1 piece without an incision or any extra drilling. A tricky one is when it either comes out in a couple pieces because of hooked roots, when the gum is covering it or when there’s nothing to hold because it’s badly damaged. A stitch is often required in these situations.
Extracting the tooth should always be considered a last resort and we will always give you all the alternative options first.
So if you’ve been wanting to get rid of that sore tooth for a while, call us on 3633 0055 or book online now.
The invoice will show the standard fees with a professional discount applied to reduce the invoice down to $199 (or $299) or the health fund rebate amount (whichever is the greater). In situations where the health fund rebate is greater than $199 (or $299), no credit will be applied to the account. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
This is an exceptional deal. We are a new clinic and believe that this is the best way for you to experience the Smile Time difference.
Our capped price checkup includes a full exam, any radiographs that are needed to properly diagnose your condition (including an OPG if required), a first visit clean (for the majority of regular patients, this is all you need) and a customised treatment plan to restore or maintain your dental health. This promotion is valid if all services are performed during the same appointment. Should you wish to return for your clean or x-rays on another day, our normal fees will apply.
This promotion represents amazing value over our standard fee schedule. A first examination and clean may include the following codes 011, 022×2, 037, 114, 141, 121 which equates to $417. If you have a health fund and the rebate is $165 or over, that means there’s no out of pocket expense!
The invoice will show the standard fees with a professional discount applied to reduce the invoice down to the capped price or health fund rebate amount (whichever is the greater). In situations where the health fund rebate is greater than the cap price, no credit will be applied to the account.
Did you know many wisdom teeth can be removed in the dental chair like you would for any sore tooth? Smile Time Family Dental realises that not everyone needs to go to Hospital to be ‘put under’ for their wisdom teeth.
We’ve also fixed the price for wisdom teeth removal so even if the extraction turns out harder than we thought, you won’t get a surprise bill at the end.
To find out more, please call the clinic on 3633 0055 to organise a consultation for your wisdom teeth. Sean or Rebecca at Smile Time Family Dental will determine your eligibility and whether this procedure is best for you.
