Wisdom teeth can be painful and cause multiple problems, and in many cases it’s advisable to get them taken out sooner rather than later.
But what if your budget won’t stretch to meet the cost of wisdom teeth removal in one go? Fortunately, a solution is available in the form of zero-interest dental payment plans.
With this funding, you can get your wisdom teeth extracted now and spread the cost by paying in instalments over a fixed period of time.
Wisdom teeth extraction can also avoid more costly treatment later. Left untreated, troublesome wisdom teeth can trigger issues needing more complicated dental procedures.
A further risk is that infection can travel from the mouth via the bloodstream to other areas of the body, including vital organs.
A dental payment plan is essentially a loan. You get the lump sum needed for immediate payment and pay back the money in installments, typically over six, 12, or even 24 months.
Monthly repayments are common but weekly and fortnightly options are also available. A deposit and/or set-up fee may or may not be required. There are sometimes penalties for late repayments.
Feel free to give us a call to enquire more about these payment plans that we do offer to all our patients. You will be able to apply for the right plan for you at our practice with the assistance of our lovely staff.
Dental payment plans may be offered in-house by the dental clinic itself but are more often provided through third-party companies.
Payment plans from some of these third-party providers can be used for any major expense, not just dental work like wisdom teeth removal.
These providers include:
Other payment plan providers work exclusively with dentists, as with:
- National Dental Plan, powered by humm.
- My Smile Plan
All the payment plans mentioned above charge no interest. So you can start smiling with confidence and we will take care of the rest! Give a call now to find out more!
The cost of extracting a wisdom tooth depends mainly on the complexity of the procedure and whether the tooth is impacted – stuck beneath the gum line.
Other factors that influence wisdom teeth removal costs include:
- Location of the dentist – wisdom teeth extraction generally costs more in rural districts than in big cities.
- The type of dental clinic.
- How many wisdom teeth need removing.
- Angle of the tooth and its roots.
Wisdom teeth extraction at Wisdom Teeth Sydney costs from $300 a tooth. Interest-free payment plans are available, with payments from $20 a week. If you opt for dental sedation, the extraction procedure will cost more.
Interest-free dental payment plans are an affordable way to pay for wisdom teeth extraction with manageable repayments that don’t put a heavy strain on your cash flow.
And they avoid the risk of more serious issues developing when problem wisdom teeth aren’t removed promptly.
