What Can Influence the Cost of Care the Most?
It’s no surprise that your emergency visit is going to cost more overall than a routine exam and cleaning. However, these factors can also influence the total price:
- The severity of the emergency (a minor toothache vs. a completely knocked-out tooth)
- Whether you have dental insurance or not (many offer some level of coverage for emergencies)
- The area in which you are receiving care ( a small town vs. a large city)
Why Should You Visit Now, Rather Than Later?
It’s very difficult to know what a dental emergency will cost until it gets looked at by a dentist. Either Dr. Silva or Dr. Santeli will closely examine your dental issue and be able to determine what needs to be done from there. Depending on what you need, you can expect differing levels of coverage from your dental insurance plan (i.e. 50 percent vs. 70 to 80 percent coverage.)
At the end of the day, the last thing you should do is assume that your dental issue will get better on its own because it’s more than likely that it will not. In fact, the issue can get much worse the longer it goes untreated. We’ll help you remain as stress-free as possible, both when it comes to treating and paying for your dental emergency.
