is it really an emergency

How do I know if it’s really an emergency?

Sometimes it’s hard to tell if a dental problem requires immediate assistance. The best way to determine if you need to come in right away is by calling our office and explaining the situation. If it’s something that can be taken care of at home, we can give you advice on how to treat your affliction. If your problem requires us to take a look but not necessarily right away, our team will work with you to schedule an appointment at a convenient time in the near future. If we do decide that you’re experiencing a true emergency, we will tell you to come in and start getting a treatment room ready.

What if it’s not an emergency?

For certain situations like a chipped tooth or a soft-tissue injury that results in a little bleeding, you will likely want to make an appointment within a couple of days, but you don’t necessarily have to see us immediately. Because emergencies vary so much from case to case, the best thing to do will be to check with us to see what your course of action should be.
how much will this cost

How much does emergency care cost?

Emergency visits are covered by some insurance plans, but not all of them. If you are concerned about paying out-of-pocket costs, our team will be happy to work with you to find the most affordable option. The important thing is to come see us as soon as you can, because putting off emergency care can result in your condition becoming worse, and possibly more costly.
