The average emergency visit usually ranges from $75 - $250 depending on the dentist. This cost usually includes x-rays and an exam, but typically will not include the treatment.
What is a 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 with you the cost and financing options before performing any type of treatment. If you find yourself having a dental emergency during normal business hours, the prices mentioned above may be true; however, if you have an emergency outside of normal business hours, the price may be expensive and finding an emergency dentist may become difficult.
Form a relationship with your dental provider
Another good reason to have a good relationship with your regular dentist is for this sole reason. If you’re ever in this emergency situation, you can call their after-hours line to reach your dentist and ask him or her questions or get a prescription called into your local pharmacy. It is important to note that some emergencies may need a visitation to the hospital. A good sign that you need to head straight to the hospital is if you’re experiencing 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 immediately call 911 or head straight to the emergency room.
