When a dental emergency appears, the last thing we want our patients to be thinking about is how they’re going to be paying for their care instead of making a call to our office to set up a visit. At the end of the day, we want to make sure that your dental discomfort is gone for good and the source of your urgent dental issue is handled properly. This will reduce the risk of it coming back later. With that said, there are certain factors to keep in mind when it comes to covering the costs of your care at Premier Dental. If you have any specific questions or need to treat a dental emergency, call us!
While there are many ways a dental emergency can appear as well as different types of dental emergencies, these are a few of the most common factors that affect cost.
Dental emergencies do not get better on their own, like a common cold or minor cut. Instead, they are far more likely to get worse. As a result, a tooth that may have only needed a dental filling may eventually need a dental crown/root canal therapy, two treatments that cost significantly more. Just because your dental emergency may cost more than a routine checkup does not mean it’s worth skipping a visit and hoping for the best. The most effective way to stop your dental discomfort and prevent future dental emergencies from occurring is by getting it taken care of now.
At our office, we provide multiple methods of covering your dental emergency costs. Whether you have a plan with Delta Dental, an insurer that we are in-network for, you have an out-of-network insurance plan (which we are happy to accept), or you’d like to make payments over the course of several months with CareCredit, we’ll help you every step of the way. We also have an in-house dental savings plan, which provides discounts on many services often used for treating dental emergencies.
