Big Ranges in Fees. Why?
The wisdom tooth extraction process is very complex and the extraction difficulty depends on many factors. That is the reason why most of the costs mentioned here are extremely indicative and tentative.

c) Root Shape: A wisdom tooth that has a irregular or curved root shape will be harder and hence more expensive to extract.
