Cost of Dental Emergencies
Worry-Free Emergency Dental Care
When a dental emergency strikes, chances are the last thing on your mind is how much you’ll have to pay to alleviate your pain and stress. The discomfort sits at the forefront of your mind as you call your dentist and then drive to our Grants Pass office. It’s usually not until you’re sitting in the dental chair that your thoughts begin to spiral around the idea of “How much is this going to cost?” At Premier Care Dental, we want that to be the last thing on your mind. We want you to be more focused on getting the care your smile needs to be healthy and happy. This is why you can expect our helpful team members to minimize the stress of paying for emergency care by working with your insurance company and providing additional resources to make your treatment fit within your budget. Call us today to learn more.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Emergency Treatment?
Unsurprisingly, an emergency dental visit will cost more than a normal checkup and cleaning. However, there are several factors that can influence the cost of your treatment. Some of these factors include:
- Location of the office. Dental offices in larger cities or places with a higher cost of living tend to be more expensive.
- Dental insurance. If you have dental insurance, you can expect to pay significantly less for your treatment.
- Type of treatment needed. Your cost, as well as your level of coverage from your insurance carrier, will vary depending on what kind of restorative care you need.
What Financial Options Are Available?
At Premier Care Dental, we are proud to accept virtually any dental insurance plan. We’ll even file the paperwork on your behalf to eliminate some of your stress.
However, if you don’t have insurance, don’t worry. We offer a few different options to finance your care. CareCredit allows you to receive loans with deferred interest, meaning you won’t have to pay a cent in interest if you repay your loan within a certain timeframe. Proceed Finance also offer flexible loans with incredibly low interest rates. We also offer a Dental Savings Plan, which nets you one FREE emergency exam a year, as well as discounts on several other dental services, provided you pay an annual fee.
The Importance of Scheduling an Appointment
Because there is no specific cost of treating dental emergencies, it’s imperative that you come in to see us as soon as one arises. Otherwise, your problem could worsen over time and result in the need for more extensive and costly treatment down the line. In some cases, putting off emergency treatment could even mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth!
While it’s important to consider all the factors that go into the cost of emergency care, you shouldn’t let the price tag deter you from seeking the treatment you need. Our team is here to help you maintain a healthy smile without breaking the bank.
