How Much Is Emergency Dental Care?
Your individual treatment needs and insurance coverage are two important factors in determining the cost of emergency dental care. Whether you need follow-up care will also affect your emergency dental cost. To give you a more accurate outline of your likely emergency dental care costs, your dentist will discuss your treatment options with you during your appointment. With your treatment plan decided, we will also give you an estimate of anticipated costs and coverage amounts.

Can You Explain Emergency Dental Services?
When you need emergency dental services, you can rely on us to help relieve your pain and restore your oral health. We provide many emergency dental treatments, including:
Emergency Extractions: We always want you to keep your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth is too damaged or decayed to save, and you’ll need an emergency extraction.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth may be the last of your teeth to come in, but they are often the most prone to infection and decay. Emergency extractions can help remove the damaged tooth, so you can get back to enjoying excellent oral health.
Root Canals: Root canal therapy is a common treatment for alleviating dental pain, eliminating tooth pulp infections and saving your natural teeth. If you are experiencing tooth pain, call our office to see if we can help save your tooth with root canal therapy.
Root Canals for Children: As with adults, we always try to help young patients keep their natural teeth. Our dentists are experienced and gentle when working with children.
Tooth Extractions: Our dedicated team of dental professionals also perform scheduled, non-emergency tooth extractions.
When Are Emergency Dental Services Appropriate?
Call our office for emergency dental care if you experience any of the following conditions:
Abscessed Tooth: An abscess is a deep infection in your tooth’s root, and it’s a serious condition. If you have painful facial or gum swelling, a fever or excruciating tooth pain, schedule an appointment for emergency dental treatment.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Teeth with cracks, chips or breaks are vulnerable to decay and further damage. If you have a cracked tooth, visit our office for prompt dental care.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: Fractured jaws need immediate, emergency treatment. Call our office for an emergency dentist immediately after you have sustained the injury.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: When a crown breaks or loosens, it exposes the affected tooth to damage and potential infection. Our dentists will replace the crown to restore your tooth’s protection and appearance.
Dental Infections: Our dental professionals can treat a wide range of dental infections at our office. After your treatment, we can also review some of the ways you can avoid future infections with proper oral health practices.
Knocked-out Teeth: Your dentist may be able to save your knocked-out tooth if you act promptly. Before your urgent dental visit, try to place the tooth back in its socket. If that is not possible, store it in a cold cup of milk.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Our dentists can replace a loose or missing filling to protect your exposed tooth from decay.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Painful swelling of your face or gums could be a sign of an urgent dental issue. You can receive treatment and pain relief in our office.
Severe Toothaches: If you have relentless tooth pain, don’t wait to see if the pain goes away on its own. Our dentists are here to diagnose and treat the cause of the pain, so you can enjoy relief from your discomfort.
Is It More Expensive for Emergency Dental Services?
When you experience an urgent dental condition, we understand you may have concerns about emergency dental treatment costs. We work hard to keep our services affordable. We’ll work closely with your insurance company to reduce your costs, and we’re a preferred provider for MetroCare Dental Plan. MetroCare can be used in addition to your traditional dental insurance, and it’s a budget-saving option for our patients without insurance. MetroCare saves you 20 to 80 percent on a variety of procedure costs, including root canals, extractions and fillings. MetroCare plans begin at $129 a year. We’re happy to provide you with more information, so feel free to give us a call.
