The average emergency visit usually ranges from $75 to $250, depending on the dentist. This cost usually includes X-rays and an exam, but typically will not include the treatment.
What is an emergency dental evaluation?
Our Dallas emergency dentist will first evaluate the tooth or emergency in order to let you know what the treatment option will be, as well as discuss the cost and financing options before performing any type of treatment.
If you find yourself experiencing a dental emergency during normal business hours, the prices mentioned above may be accurate; however, if your emergency happens outside of normal business hours, the price may be higher and finding an emergency dentist may become difficult.
Form a relationship with your dental provider
Another good reason to have a solid relationship with your regular dentist is this one. If you’re ever in an emergency situation, you can call the after-hours line to reach your dentist to ask questions or get a prescription relayed to your local pharmacy.
It is crucial to note that certain emergencies may require a visit to the hospital. A strong sign that you ought to head straight to a hospital is if you experience any swelling or fever.
If you’re having a dental emergency, our emergency dentists at Dallas Dental Arts are here to serve you. However, if you are experiencing a life-threatening dental emergency, call 911 or head straight to the emergency room.
