Wisdom Tooth HELL

Went to the dentist - Wisdom tooth needs work - $2000- $3000.  This is not shaping up to be a pleasant time for either my mouth or my bank account. 


  1. Got mine pulled in Korea for $15, US (W15,000). Of course, I had insurance, but even without insurance, a wisdom tooth extraction wouldn't have been that expensive.

    My condolences to your bank account. Whatever happened to government-sponsored health care?

  2. Government doesn't sponsor elective or non-urgent cases. If your injury is caused at work everything is free too. Mine is just the wear and tear of age and possibly shitty genetics.

  3. American insurance plans make a bizarre division between "health" and "dental" categories. A person with an amazing health plan might be screwed if he has to have a wisdom tooth removed.
