We’re happy to see patients the same day that they call in, and in particularly urgent situations, we can get people in on the weekend as well.

How We Treat Dental Emergencies

Every dental emergency is unique, and we’ll always tailor your treatment according to your needs. Having said that, the process can generally be divided into four main stages:

 

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

here are two main types of dental emergencies. Some can develop in the blink of an eye, like with a motor vehicle accident or collision while playing sports. Others take months to progress and only become apparent when they start to cause major pain. Our team is more than capable of handling both, and you should give us a call right away if you or a family member ever experience any sudden problems with your teeth. Below are some of the most common dental emergencies that we’ve seen over the years.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies, just like people, come in all shapes and sizes, so the required treatment can vary quite a bit from patient to patient depending on their particular needs. Sometimes, someone might just need a prescription to take care of a minor infection, or they may need a root canal and a crown. In any case, our approach will be to get a patient out of pain before addressing any damage to their smile. To help patients with unexpected dental expenses, we’re happy to accept all PPO insurances, offer flexible financing, and even have our own In-House Savings Plan.

Understanding the Cost of Emergency Dentistry

Since each dental emergency is different, we have no way of knowing how much yours will cost until we see you in our office in Spring House. However, we offer a $49 emergency special for new patients that includes the necessary X-rays and exams. After we’ve had the chance to evaluate your oral situation, we’ll be able to determine the appropriate treatments for your needs and provide you with a personalized cost estimate. We’ll make sure you know how much you will pay before we begin treatment, and we’ll do everything we can to make the process as affordable as possible. Avoiding necessary dental care can allow the problem to become worse, eventually making more expensive treatments necessary. Contact our team to learn more.

Every Dental Emergency Is Different

It is essentially impossible to predict how much treating your dental emergency will cost before we examine you in our office. While some dental emergencies can be resolved with quick, simple, and inexpensive solutions such as dental fillings or prescription mouthwash, more severe issues may require extensive treatments like extractions or root canals along with restorations like dental crowns or dental implants. We’ll thoroughly review your treatment options before we begin.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Emergencies?

Most dental insurance plans include some coverage for dental emergencies. While many plans offer coverage for one yearly emergency dental exam, they may cover common services like root canals, crowns, and extractions by anything from 50% to 80%. Since every plan is different, it is important to confirm what your insurance company offers as well as any yearly maximums before committing to treatment. We’ll be happy to help you through this process.

It's also worth remembering that preventive care such as routine exams and cleanings are covered by 100% with most plans because they can reliably prevent dental emergencies. It’s wise to take advantage of this.

Other Options for Making Dental Emergencies Affordable

While we accept many forms of insurance, we also offer several other options for paying for emergency dental services. These include:

  • In-office savings plan: For a flat fee of $299 a year, you can receive two oral exams, two routine cleanings, a set of X-rays, and a 20% discount on all restorative and cosmetic treatments.
  • Financing options: We offer financing plans through CareCredit and Sunbit, third-party financiers that break dental bills into easily manageable monthly payments with little or no interest.
  • New patient special: We offer new patients a $49 emergency visit that includes all necessary X-rays and exams.

Taking Care of Your Smile Can Save You Money

While some dental emergencies are unavoidable or unpredictable, most can be prevented with proper oral hygiene and by protecting the teeth from injuries. Practicing excellent oral care at home, seeing your dentist regularly, and wearing a mouthguard when playing sports or riding a bike may save you thousands of dollars over the years.

Once you notice dental damage or oral pain, it’s important to address the issue right away. While emergency treatment may sound expensive, waiting to treat the problem will only make the necessary care more costly. For example, having a toothache treated immediately can make the difference between needing a root canal or a much more expensive treatment such as extraction and tooth replacement.
