Dental emergencies are already stressful situations to deal with, even without worrying about the financial strain it may put on your finances. At ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics, we don’t want our patients to have to worry about having to break their monthly budget in order to get the dental care they need. That’s why we offer several financial options and proudly accept a variety of dental insurance policies as well as Medicaid and CHIP. If you’re worried about scheduling your emergency appointment because you don’t want to take the chance of having a big dental bill, be sure to contact our office today. Our team will work with you to make sure that you get the care you need without breaking the bank.
There are many factors that go into determining the cost of dental emergency appointments. Based on your examination, we’ll calculate the price of your visit with the following considerations in mind:
Patients who have a simple broken tooth can be treated with dental bonding that can be completed in under 30 minutes, depending on the extent of the damage. But other patients who have knocked-out teeth may require a restoration to replace it, which could take up to two appointments. It makes sense that a knocked-out tooth would cost more to treat than a broken one, and that’s the basis of how we determine the cost for your appointment.
At ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics, we welcome in-network and out-of-network patients and gladly file insurance claims to maximize your benefits. We also provide other payment options, such as additional financing through CareCredit and an in-office membership plan. Additionally, many of our patients who have Medicaid and CHIP aren’t aware that certain dental services are covered by their policy for children and young adults who are 20 and under, so we’ll help you find out what your coverage will look like! If you have any questions about affording your emergency treatment, our team will gladly help answer them and make sure that you’re getting the best possible coverage that you deserve.
Patients are often tempted to put their dental emergency appointments on the backburner in hopes that the problem will go away on its own. By doing this, instead of saving money like you initially intended, it will likely cost you more. When small oral health problems have the chance to become more serious, they often require more invasive treatments that aren’t covered by dental insurance providers. That’s why our goal is to quickly and effectively address our patients’ dental emergencies to save them money and preserve their smiles.
