Have you been suffering from a severe toothache? A broken tooth? Bleeding gums? You may be wondering how much you can expect to pay for emergency dental care. The team at Buckwalter Dental Care wants you to be prepared for every aspect of your treatment, including the payment and financing process. Here’s what you need to know about the cost of emergency dental care:
Unfortunately, it’s not really possible to provide you with an accurate cost assessment for your treatment until you come in for a consultation with Dr. Darrah. The extent of damage to your tooth or gums, the location of the injury, and the details about your condition will all affect the cost of your treatment, and which procedures may be right for you.
For example, a minor chip in your tooth that does not break through the enamel and dentin may be treated with dental bonding or a porcelain veneer. But if the damage is deeper and has gone through the entire outer layer of your tooth, you may need a dental crown.
To get a diagnosis for your issue and find out how much you’ll pay, we recommend coming into Buckwalter Dental Care as soon as you can. At your consultation, Dr. Darrah will discuss the proper solution for your issue, and how much it will cost.
Even if you may be on a tight budget, it’s still a good idea to come into our office for emergency care as soon as you notice an issue. Why? Because delaying treatment for a dental emergency will be more expensive, in the long run.
For example, if you notice that you have a sensitive tooth and a toothache, you may have a cavity. If you come in and get it treated with a filling, you’ll stop it from developing into a tooth infection. But if you don’t get treatment, your tooth may become infected and require a root canal and a dental crown, which is much more expensive.
No matter what your emergency issue may be, it’s always better to get help right away, get relief from your pain and discomfort, and prevent further complications.
