According to FAIR Health, the average cost of a simple tooth extraction (D7140) in the city of Indianapolis is $149 for those with insurance and a whopping $220 for those without it. If you have dental insurance, this price is typically managed by your insurance carrier and will be the same for any in-network dentist. However, your price without dental insurance is entirely determined by the dentist you see. Below, we'll compare the price of a simple extraction across several of the most affordable dentists in Indianapolis.
DDSNow Urgent Dental Care: $99
Here at DDSNow, it is our mission to make urgent dental care affordable, particularly for those without dental insurance. Our everyday low price for a simple dental extraction is just $99, as part of our $20-per-year Dental+ plan. As of today, we believe this price is one of the lowest, if not the lowest, prices for pulling a tooth in Indianapolis.
Same Day Dental: $101
The team at DDSNow Urgent Dental Care founded 24 Hour Dental Care (now Same Day Dental) back in 2014 with the motto "always open, always affordable." While the prices have increased slightly since our time at 24 Hour Dental Care, you can still receive a simple extraction for as low as $101. This price does require participation in their DentaMember discount plan ($99 per year), however.
Aspen Dental: $124
Aspen Dental is one of the largest groups of dental practices in the United States. In fact, it has four locations in the Indianapolis area alone. While Aspen is not traditionally known for its low prices, its practices currently offer a special price on simple (routine) dental extractions of $124 (typically $154).
Affordable Dentures: $125
Affordable Dentures is a nationwide group of denture-centric dental practices, often known for its namesake affordable pricing. As of today, a routine extraction at Affordable Dentures in Speedway, Indiana, is $125 per tooth. With that being said, this price can be reduced as part of a new denture wearer package to $89.
The Bottom Line
There are hundreds of dental practices across the Indianapolis area, many of which may have prices far higher than the list we've curated. However, with four of the most affordable dental practices offering an average price of just over $112, we believe it is reasonable to assume that you can have a tooth pulled for far lower than FAIR Health's average pricing for a simple extraction. Indeed, for 50% less than claimed.
