Low Cost tooth extraction
What is important to know as far as the prices for tooth extraction goes is that every tooth is different, so is every extraction and the cost to pull each tooth is also very different. But regardless of the condition of the tooth, our prices are still very very affordable. Our Tooth Extraction prices start at $80 for baby tooth extraction compared to an average of $150 in Houston and Permanent tooth extractions at an average price of $150 based on the condition of the tooth. A tooth may be loose, it could be decayed, broken to the gum line, you may also need multiple extraction, all of these can affect the time and ease of pulling teeth hence, the difference in the cost. Depending on the condition of your tooth, the cost for your tooth extraction may cost slightly more or even less than the average.
Free Consultation / Oral Evaluation
When you choose keem smile Dentistry for your tooth extraction, you already begin to save with our free consultation services for self paid no insurance patients who need to have a tooth pulled. Sometimes toothache can affect a whole section of the head and patients cannot really tell which tooth is hurting or where the pain is coming from specifically. Only a Dentist can accurately diagnose the source of a toothache and identify which tooth would be pulled to stop the pain. Oral Evaluation is a service that’s worth from $50-100. Here at keem Smile Dentistry, when you need a tooth extracted, oral evaluation is free. These savings overall ensures that you can get your tooth pulled at affordable rates
Free Dental X-ray with your Affordable tooth extraction
Oral evaluation is not enough to diagnose the condition of a tooth. More often than not, X-rays like PA, bitewing and/or Panoramic are required to show the condition of the tooth in bone and detect any infections if any. Also with proper X-ray, the risk of complications can be evaluated such as Sinus Exposure and Nerve damage. If our Dentist feels you need an X-ray of your teeth taken, you can get your X-ray taken at no additional charge with same day treatments. X-ray cost would not add to the total cost of the tooth extraction when you choose us for affordable tooth extraction services in Houston TX
Price Match Guarantee
We do not want you to live through pain because you cannot afford to get your painful tooth extracted. True you can get your tooth pulled at a Dental School for perhaps a lesser price than we offer in our office but that would usually take days before they can get you in. When they do, you will be seen by a Doctor in training whose level of expertise cannot match that of our veteran Dentist with over 15 years experience. Asides for these and the occasional Free Dental Services that rolls by in Town once in a while, Keem Smile Would price match whatever your private Dentist might have quoted you to have your teeth pulled just present a detailed and signed treatment plan.
Your Primary Dentist cannot get you in early enough
Your Dentist already took an X-ray and did the consultation and gave you a treatment plan but they do not have a Dentist in house to do the surgery so you have to wait another 3 weeks before you can get your teeth pulled. Present your signed Dental Treatment plan at keem smile dentistry, we will get you in ASAP and the price match more often will beat the price because we offer one of the most affordable tooth extraction services in the greater Houston area.
All PPO Insurance Accepted

We will also offer network pricing i.e prices set by your Dental insurance to help you get the most savings from your Dental insurance and to get your teeth pulled at the lowest price possible out of pocket costs.

Do you need a tooth Pulled?
Frequently asked questions
Most insurances (including HMO and PPO) cover tooth extraction as this is still considered a basic service by most insurances here in the USA. This Includes both government and private insurances. Percentage of coverage will vary depending on the type of extraction (Coverage is usually 80% or 50% of the cost). It is not uncommon to find an Insurance carrier that will cover simple extractions but not surgical extractions. Coverage will also depend on the type of plan you have with your Insurance carrier.
This will vary from individual to individual. It will also depend on which tooth we are talking about and if it was a simple or surgical extraction. Either way, complete healing of the gums after a tooth extraction will take about 21-30 days. It should however be noted that healing starts with blood clot formation and that is why you should not do anything that will distort the clot like spitting continously, rinsing vigorously, eating/drinking warm or hot stuffs, smoking, drinking alcohol and the use of straw to drink following an extraction. It takes about 6 months for the socket (new bone formation) to fully heal.
How much does it cost to have a tooth extracted? The average cost of a single tooth extraction in Houston is $200. Depending on the type of extraction (simple/surgical ) this can go as high as $500. It should also be noted that surgical extraction is mostly commonly associated with wisdom teeth extractions, rotten or decayed tooth. If you need to pull any tooth other than wisdom tooth, it will cost from $100 – $200 at Keem Smile Dentistry. This price is assuming there are no “possible complications” which happens only 5% of the time and excludes the additional cost for procedures using anaesthesia.
How soon can I eat and or drink after a tooth extraction? You can eat and drink shortly after you get your tooth extracted as long as the numbing has gone away and the bleeding has stopped. It just has to be a food you don’t have to chew. It must be a food that you only swallow. If you must chew, you should wait at least 2-3 hours after getting a tooth pulled before chewing. This is because the numbness from the anesthesia usually lasts about 3 hrs during which if you try to chew on anything, you might bite or chew on your tongue, cheek and lips unknowingly causing more damage to your mouth. So wait till the effect of the anesthesia has worn off before chewing. It is also advisable to be on soft diet after getting a tooth pulled. Cold coffee is allowed bit hot coffee, hot drinks/foods, soda and spicy food should also be avoided. Also no straws for drinking for 48 hours.
Only a dentist is trained and licensed to perform dentistry hence a tooth extraction procedure. So no, emergency room doctors can’t do much more than prescribe antibiotics and/or painkillers. This is to suppress the pain but it doesn’t fix the problem and you will still need to see a dentist. Either way, you are better off seeing a dentist as the cost of an ER visit is usually higher than an Emergency Dental visit. Also, you won’t have to wait forever if you visit a dentist office unlike ER. We see emergency/walk-in patients at Keem Smile all the time.
For patients without insurance in Houston, TX or any nearby city, you can get your tooth pulled for $150 at Keem Smile Dentistry. 6434 HWY 6 N, Houston TX 77084. Surgical extractions like wisdom teeth that require removal of bone or sectioning of tooth will cost a little bit more depending how impacted the tooth is.
A simple answer to this would be yes, but that would leave out so many other important factors that needs to be considered before you decide to get back to work after getting a tooth pulled. The time it takes to return to work is relative to the type of extraction, type of anaesthesia used, overall health status and how well you follow the post op Instructions. Even though we expect some pain or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, this can easily be managed with the prescribed pain medication. The best practice however is setting aside about 24 hours after tooth extraction for recovery to avoid post operative complications. Patients with jobs that require more vigorous activities will want to take more time off and avoid pain medication that might make them drowsy
Tooth extraction is a minor surgery with very minimal risks. Still, it is worth putting the risks in perspective. While there is no accurate figure as to how often tooth extractions get bluffed, it is estimated that only 1 in about 365,000 patients suffer a brain injury or death when they are sedated during a tooth extraction procedure. Having the procedure done without being put to sleep reduces the risk significantly. Other complications might include infection spreading, bleeding or nerve damage; all of which are relatively uncommon. Nerve damage can mostly be avoided with good 3-dimensional X-ray.
Does tooth extraction hurt? No! Getting a tooth Pulled should not be painful. It might sound scary though especially considering that a lot of patients have dental anxiety and are scared of the dentist. The truth of the matter, howver, is dentistry has really evolved with so many new tools and techniques for surgical extraction and pain management. The dentist would usually administer local anesthesia to numb the extraction area so that you don’t feel pain while the tooth is being pulled. You could also be put to sleep so you sleep right through the procedure. Dentistry has evolved from the days of pulling teeth with the dentist’s knee on your chest! Older generations would understand this better. Discuss pain management with your doctor and tooth extraction should not hurt.
