We can provide sedation dentistry to ensure a stress-free emergency visit

A dental emergency can be incredibly frightening, especially if you don’t know where to turn for relief. At times like these, you need to have a local dentist in Forney who is able to quickly ease your pain and treat the underlying problem. For nervous patients or those with a dental emergency, calming sedation dentistry can help them relax. This compassionate care can be yours at Ideal Dental of Forney. Whether you are new to our practice or one of our longtime patients, we gladly accept dental emergencies and provide same-day treatment during office hours. We perform a variety of emergency procedures, including teeth extractions, as well as root canal treatment for both adults and children. Besides our emergency care, we offer many general dental services, such as exams and oral cancer screenings, digital X-rays, teeth cleaning, gum disease therapy, and night guards for patients with bruxism. When you have cavities or other dental damage, we can restore your teeth with fillings, porcelain crowns, bridges, and both partial and full dentures. Since your appearance affects your self-esteem, our cosmetic dentistry can give you a confident smile. Our outstanding cosmetic dentist offers tooth veneers, Invisalign® clear aligners, and full-mouth reconstructions. We can make your teeth dramatically brighter with an in-office teeth whitening treatment or an at-home whitening kit.

Need a dentist who takes insurance? You’re covered at Ideal Dental.

Ideal Dental features competitive costs for our general dental services, cosmetic procedures, orthodontics, oral surgery, and restorative dental treatments. We know that having dental insurance is often the only way for patients to afford regular dental treatment. To make our high-quality care available, Ideal Dental of Forney accepts the majority of dental insurance providers, and our helpful team will help you navigate the insurance claims process. In case your insurance only pays for some of your costs, there are other ways to cover the rest of your costs. One of our most popular financial solutions is the MetroCare discount dental plan. Once you sign up as a member, you will be eligible for tremendous savings on many dental procedures. Additionally, we offer CareCredit, which will let you pay off your balance interest-free over several months. CareCredit can be used to finance all of your costs, or to supplement your insurance benefits. Our knowledgeable staff and dentists will be happy to provide you with the details. Give us a call at (972) 552-2373 for more information.
