While you wait for your appointment, click on the icons below to learn how to handle some of the most common dental emergencies we see.

Understanding the Cost of Emergency Dentistry

When you have a toothache caused by an oral infection or you’re suffering from an oral injury due to a bad fall, you should have a place you can call your go-to home for getting it treated effectively. At Lakeside Daytona Dentist, we’ll make sure that your dental emergency is not only handled properly (ideally on the same day) but that you also understand what you can expect in terms of the price beforehand, so there are no surprises when it comes to your care. Read on to learn more about the cost of emergency dentistry in Daytona Beach.

Every Dental Emergency Is Different

Our team will first need to determine the kind of injury that happened and the appropriate method to treat it. If you only require antibiotics or some other prescription, then your treatment may be much lower compared to the need for more complex procedures, such as a dental crown or root canal. While it’s no surprise that your emergency visit is going to cost more overall than a routine exam and cleaning, here are a few factors that 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)

 

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Emergencies?

Most dental insurance companies typically offer coverage for emergency dental treatments. The amount that’s paid will depend on the kind of restorative service you need. While many providers cover at least 50% of the overall cost, plans will vary from patient to patient. You’ll need to consult your insurer to work out the details of your policy. Our dental office is glad to work with multiple in-network insurance providers as well as accept out-of-network plans.  

Other Options for Making Dental Emergencies Affordable

Don’t have insurance? This doesn’t mean you’ll be left completely on your own. We offer alternative financing options, such as an in-house dental plan that gives you access to discounts on many other services. We also provide monthly financing options like CareCredit and Lending Club, two options that make paying for treatments easier and typically with little to zero interest attached!

Taking Care of Your Smile Can Save You Money

Although not every dental emergency is avoidable, you can effectively reduce your chances of one by practicing proper oral hygiene and avoiding certain poor habits, such as chewing on ice and smoking. You’ll also want to regularly check for any changes in your mouth or signs of developing issues, like a toothache, which can become bigger problems over time. By cleaning your smile often and visiting our team every six months, you can avoid the need for costly restorative or emergency dental treatment in the long run!

 

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

There is no way to completely safeguard yourself against dental emergencies, but there are some steps you can take to reduce the chances that one will happen to you or a loved one. Visiting your dentist for routine checkups and cleanings is crucial, as it helps to ensure that minor issues are detected before they get the chance to turn into larger, painful problems. If you or your child plays contact sports, protecting the smile with a custom-fitted mouthguard will help to prevent sports injuries -- which are one of the most common causes of dental emergencies. Breaking bad oral habits like nail biting, pen chewing, and eating ice will also protect your teeth against chips, breaks, and other painful injuries.
