Cost of Dental Emergencies – Milwaukee, WI

Your Smile is Always Worth Investing In

A dental emergency can happen out of nowhere, so it’s important to know what to do next if one occurs. One of the most common questions about dental emergencies is cost. How do you know the price of your emergency treatment? There are various factors that can influence the cost of your emergency treatment, which is why we have outlined some important information about finances below.

Types of Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can typically be separated into two different categories: infection that occurs over time and sudden dental injury. We can treat either type of emergency but there are many different problems that can occur. Infection may cause a toothache, you could lose a tooth, you may crack or break a tooth, or you can lose a filling/crown. These are just some of the most common dental emergencies that can affect your smile. For each of these problems, we have a specific treatment ready to help. However, each treatment has a different cost assigned to it, which is why it’s difficult to provide a precise price estimate without examining your mouth first.

Factors That Influence Cost

There are many variables that impact the price of a dental emergency—the main being the treatment that is required. If you have a toothache, we will most likely need to provide root canal therapy to successfully remove the infected part of your tooth without extracting it. After, we will typically place a dental crown to protect and strengthen the affected tooth. Typically, this procedure can at least be partially covered by your dental insurance plan, but this will all depend on a case by case basis. Other dental emergencies like chipped teeth, broken teeth, and lost teeth may also be partially covered. These are considered necessary restorations, however insurance plans will vary. Usually, the sooner a dental emergency is treated, the easier it is to get you out of pain and back to smiling. Plus, there is less likelihood that you will need a more extensive restoration.
