How We Treat Dental Emergencies

  • Regardless of the type of dental emergency you’re experiencing, you should start by giving our dental office a call. This gives us a chance to schedule an emergency appointment, ideally on the same day. It also connects you with one of our team members who is trained to help those dealing with severe dental pain.
  • After you get to our office, our team members will check you in and bring you to an operatory so that Dr. Neelima Ravi, DMD, FAGD can perform a detailed exam. This is meant to pinpoint the location and potential cause of your dental emergency. In some cases, digital X-rays may be needed if the problem is not easily visible or identifiable.
  • After getting you out of pain and confirming any dental concerns, we’ll go over our findings with you directly and recommend treatments we believe will best treat your emergency and prevent it from coming back. As part of this plan, we’ll go over costs and the estimated length of treatment, allowing you to set expectations early.
  • Whether it’s through dental fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, tooth extractions, or something else entirely, our team will work hard to get your dental emergency handled as soon as we can.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Before we are able to outline the cost of your emergency dental treatment, we will need to first determine how to fix the issue that is bothering you. We can’t do this until we conducted a thorough examination of your smile. Based on what we discover, we can outline a custom treatment plan for you and walk you through insurance coverage and financing options. If you have any questions, talk to our dental team so we can help!

Every Dental Emergency is Unique

The cost of your dental emergency will vary depending on numerous factors, but your initial visit with an emergency dentist will be relatively inexpensive. During this appointment, our team will take a look to assess your oral health and determine what type of treatment would be best for restoring your smile. Until you come to our practice to have the issue examined, it is very difficult to predict the overall cost. Some solutions to common dental emergencies include the following:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Extractions
  • Dental crowns
  • TMJ treatment
  • And more!

Our team will explain our findings, the recommended treatment plan, and the estimated costs beforehand so that you know exactly what to expect. There is no need for unnecessary surprises.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Emergencies?

Most of the time, dental insurance will offer some form of coverage for situations where you have a dental emergency. In some plans, at least one emergency exam may be fully covered, while common services associated with tooth pain, like root canal therapy and extractions, can receive partial coverage, anywhere from 50 % to 80%. Just remember that every plan is different, and yearly maximums usually come into effect. It’s important to confirm with your dental insurance company before committing to treatment. If you need help, contact our dental team to aid you in the process!

Other Options for Making Dental Emergencies Affordable

If you don’t have dental insurance, you aren’t completely out of luck when it comes to the cost of your treatment. Dental financing can make it much easier to fit necessary treatments into your budget. At Oceanside Family Dental, CareCredit Financing is available. This is a third-party financier used by countless healthcare providers. They offer a wide variety of low-to-no interest payment plans that feature no startup fees, surprise changes, or hidden penalties. Getting essential dental treatment shouldn’t mean breaking the bank!

Taking Care of Your Smile Can Save You Money

Not all dental emergencies can be prevented. Unexpected, unavoidable accidents can occur. However, by taking some preventive measures, many dental problems can be avoided, and you can save thousands of dollars over the years.

Always be on the lookout for changes in your mouth. New oral pain or visitable changes can indicate that something needs to be addressed. By taking care of your dental issues right away, you can keep them from becoming serious and turning into an emergency. The longer you wait, the more that your treatment is likely to cost. For example, by coming to the practice for root canal therapy now, you may be able to avoid the cost and hassle of needing an extraction and replacement tooth in the future. You can save yourself discomfort, time, and money.

 

Our dedicated team is ready to assist you with your dental emergency and help navigate the cost. Don’t hesitate to give us a call !

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Most dental emergencies can be prevented by practicing daily oral hygiene, which includes brushing and flossing. Furthermore, visiting our dental office for routine checkups and cleanings allows us to catch small problems before they turn into urgent ones. Of course, you should also make sure to never use your teeth as a tool, nor chew on items that could potentially cause your teeth to crack or chip (such as ice, pens, pencils, etc.). If you regularly play sports or currently have bruxism (unconscious teeth grinding during sleep), you’ll need to wear a protective mouth/nightguard to prevent potential damage as well.
