What Factors Can Influence the Cost of Emergency Care?
As you may expect, emergency dental care typically costs more than a routine dental checkup and cleaning. The final cost of treating a dental emergency is often influenced by a variety of factors, such as:
- Where You Are Located: All types of dental care, including emergency care, tend to be more expensive in larger cities or other communities where the cost of living is higher.
- If You Have Dental insurance: Your out-of-pocket expenses for emergency care will likely be significantly reduced if you have dental insurance.
- Type of Treatment You Need: Your costs will vary depending on the type of treatment you need, as will your insurance coverage. While every insurance plan is different, most plans cover minor services at 70-80% and major restorative treatment at 50-70%. If you would like help understanding the particulars of your insurance plan, just ask our knowledgeable and friendly staff!
What Financial Options Are Available?

Why You Should Schedule a Consultation
Putting off emergency dental care will likely only make the situation worse and may even lead to irreversible damage. So, if you experience a dental emergency, you should not hesitate to schedule an immediate consultation with Dr. Devarakonda. During your emergency appointment, Dr. Devarakonda will examine your teeth and mouth to determine the severity of the problem and recommend appropriate treatment options. She will also be able to discuss the estimated cost of emergency treatment with you at that time.
