No one likes emergencies. Everyone likes to be able to plan their life and their finances around some sort of predictable schedule. Emergencies throw everything into disarray and regular life gets put on hold and that money that you were saving up for that certain something?  Yep. Even that’s put on hold bc of the unexpected expense. According to current surveys, dental emergencies rank No. 3 in the worst and most expensive emergencies people can experience. Right behind general health emergencies and auto emergencies. 

Dealing with Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can definitely be painful. But they don’t have to put your life on hold AND they shouldn’t break your budget.  At my office, we can usually get you in the same day to get you at the very least, out of pain and patched up, or patched up and giving you the something to get you out of pain.  So that helps with your schedule and the pain. But it’s going to cost you that downpayment in the new house, right?  Nope!  At my office, we can most often access your MEDICAL benefits that you have through your MEDICAL insurance (not dental) and usually have ALL the expenses related to the emergency paid. And not only that, any future complications associated with the emergency as well!

If it’s been a while and you have some tooth or gums that have been nagging you for a bit, come in and let us take a look before it becomes a painful and dire situation. I always want my patients to “choose” to do something vs “needing” to do something bc of pain, infection or swelling.
