Gum Surgery Cost – 4 Main Reasons it Isn’t Cheap and a Bonus

Tired of high gum surgery cost? Read to the end of this post to learn how you can avoid high gum surgery cost!

You can choose ONE (and only one) of the following:

Sitting on a tropical beach and soaking up the sun…

Putting a down payment on a new car…

OR having gum surgery.

Which would you choose?

We are willing to bet that gum surgery is definitely last on the list! However, should you or someone in your family requires gum surgery, you may need to kiss that vacation or new car goodbye

Let’s dive into the details about what gum surgery actually is… and if you can afford its astonishing costs.

What Is Gum Surgery?

Gum surgery may be required for people who develop periodontal disease, which is a bacterial infection that infects the gum tissue and causes inflammation, swelling, redness, and loss of bone around the teeth

The shocking truth is that 80 percent of adults in the United States have some form of periodontal disease (as reported by The National Institute of Health)!!!

Periodontal disease starts when bacteria in your mouth collects in your mouth, attaches to your teeth, and then grows. This growth forms a biofilm that is commonly referred to as dental plaque.

When plaque is left on your teeth, it causes the nearby gum tissue to become irritated and inflamed. As a result, you may develop gingivitis, which is an early form of gum disease but can turn into a serious form of gum disease if left untreated.

If you have developed gum disease, receding gum lines, or other issues with your gums, your dentist may recommend surgery to treat and fix these issues, such as:

Now that you know what gum surgery IS (and who may need it), let’s take a closer look at what it will cost you.

What Does Gum Surgery Cost?

Depending on the severity of your disease and the type of procedure required, the cost of gum surgery varies GREATLY.

With prices between $500 to $10,000 and more, many insurance companies will cover at least part of the gum surgery cost. While these prices may seem shocking, delaying treatment can lead to more expensive and complex procedures in the future.

The Main Factors that Affect Gum Surgery Cost Are:

  • The location of your dentist.
  • The technology used in your procedure.
  • The type of treatment required.
  • The type of dental insurance you have. 

With these factors in mind, here are the approximate costs for gum surgery:

Gingival flap surgery

Gingivectomy

Gingivoplasty

Typically costs between $1,000 and $3,000 without insurance

About $200 to $400 per tooth

Around  $600 to $1,200 per procedure

If your full mouth needs periodontal treatment and will require a variety of treatments, the total cost can average $4,000 to $6,000. However, if the damage is extensive it can cost you anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000.

If you have addressed your underlying oral health issues but still aren’t satisfied with the appearance of your teeth…. LISTEN UP (and keep reading)!
