What Factors Affect the Cost of Emergency Care?
More often than not, an emergency dental visit is going to cost a bit more than a routine checkup and cleaning. However, there is still no “fixed” cost of treating a dental emergency because every situation is different.
The primary factor that influences your cost is the type of emergency you’re experiencing. This determines the exact treatment you’ll need to heal your smile. For instance, a filling to repair a small cavity will cost less than a more invasive procedure like a tooth extraction.
Your dental insurance also plays a role in the cost of your treatment. While plans vary from patient to patient, a great number of plans will cover one emergency exam a year. They will also likely cover a portion of your treatment, depending on which procedure you need.
Your Financial Options
At On Point Dentistry, we accept most major PPO dental insurance plans and will gladly file claims on your behalf. If you don’t have insurance, though, we can help you apply for a low-interest loan through CareCredit. This third-party financing company has helped countless patients fund their dental care and pay back their loans in manageable monthly installments.
Another option for uninsured patients is our Loyalty Savings Program. By paying a low, flat monthly fee, your two preventive visits a year are fully covered. You can also enjoy discounts on most of our other services. Best of all, there are no deductibles, waiting periods, or annual maximums you have to worry about.
The Importance of Seeking Emergency Treatment Right Away
It can be tempting to put off scheduling an emergency appointment until you have a little more free time. However, doing so could end up costing you more money in the long run. If your toothache is due to a cavity, for example, then seeing us as soon as you notice pain could mean that all you need is a filling. By waiting longer for treatment, you run the risk of the problem worsening. You might end up needing a more extensive, costly procedure like a root canal. Save yourself time and money by contacting us the moment you notice something is wrong.
