Every Dental Emergency is Different

In short, dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, which means that no two cases are the same. While two patients may visit us because of a toothache, one may need a small filling while the other may need root canal treatment. Similarly, we may recommend a dental crown for one patient with a cracked tooth and a tooth extraction for the next – it depends entirely on the severity of the damage! As a result, you’ll be required to undergo a thorough examination before we can determine how much you can expect to pay for your treatment.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Emergencies?

Fortunately, most dental insurance companies provide one free emergency exam each year. Furthermore, between 50% and 80% of the cost of your restorative care may be covered as well. Since we work with several of the nation’s leading providers, including Delta Dental Premier, United Healthcare, and Cigna, we can help you utilize any available benefits you have. We will even file the paperwork for you so maximizing your coverage is as easy as possible!

Other Options for Making Dental Emergencies Affordable

If you don’t have dental insurance and paying for the entire cost of your treatment upfront isn’t possible, that’s okay! We also are proud to welcome flexible financing with CareCredit and Prima Healthcredit. They offer several programs that help you fit the care you need into your monthly budget, all while avoiding high interest rates and surprise fees. Signing up only takes a few minutes too, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you have.

Taking Care Of Your Smile Can Save You Money

The good news is that many dental emergencies are completely preventable. In other words, taking good care of your smile can help protect your wallet! That begins with a commitment to a good oral hygiene regimen, which starts with consistent brushing and extends to getting a dental checkup and cleaning every six months. Additionally, don’t smoke, chew on ice cubes, bite your nails, or use your teeth as tools; these are all bad habits that can harm your teeth and gums. Finally, make sure to wear a mouthguard if you chronically grind your teeth or participate in sports.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

It’s impossible to try to prevent all dental emergencies, but there are steps you can take to minimize your risk. These include everything from ensuring optimal oral health and hygiene at home to seeing your dentist every six months for dental checkups and teeth cleanings. You can also wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth, eat a nutrient-rich, healthy diet, and avoid unhealthy habits that can damage and decay your smile.
