Cost of Dental Emergencies – Sebastian, FL
Comfortable and Affordable Care to Address Your Discomfort
When your tooth is cracked, knocked out, or in pain, you’re probably not thinking about how much it will cost to get it resolved. Instead, you’re far more likely to be focused on how to get out of discomfort so you can continue living your life. However, the only real way to stop discomfort and prevent long-term issues (including additional dental emergencies) is by calling Sebastian Dental for an exam and treatment. Our dentists and team will do everything to not only get you out of pain, but alleviate the financial stress you may be experiencing as well. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don’t be afraid to give us a call to schedule an emergency visit!
What Factors Influence Emergency Dental Costs?
Emergency visits to the dentist generally cost more than traditional checkups and cleanings do, but there are still certain factors that can influence the overall cost of your visit. For example:
- Location – If you are visiting a dentist in an area where the cost of living is higher, you may experience a higher price tag for certain services.
- Dental Insurance – Having a dental insurance plan means you should have lower out-of-pocket expenses compared to having no insurance.
- Specific Treatments – Certain restorative treatments may cost more than others (i.e. dental fillings vs. root canal therapy)
What Options Are Available?
At Sebastian Dental, we are happy to be in-network with many major dental insurance providers. These include:
- Florida Blue
- United Healthcare
- Delta Dental
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
With that said, those who do not currently have dental insurance or need extra help covering their care because their plan did not pay for all expenses can take advantage of CareCredit and the Aetna Access Discount Plan.
Why Scheduling an Appointment Matters
When a dental emergency occurs, it’s very important to get it examined by a professional sooner rather than later. This is mainly because there is no flat rate for a dental emergency, which means you won’t know how much your issue will be to treat until it’s examined. If you only require minor services to have the problem handled (i.e. a dental filling or crown), you can get more coverage from your insurance provider. However, waiting longer only increases the risk of needing treatments that either do not provide as much coverage or even none at all. At the end of the day, getting to our office sooner means you’re more likely to pay less in the long-term for emergency care.
