Frequently Asked Questions
We recognize that you’re likely to have several questions about your dental care, and we’re ready to address whatever concerns you have! If there’s something you want to ask, don’t hesitate to speak up during your next appointment; you can also call us to speak with one of our helpful team members. For your convenience, the FAQs listed below cover a number of questions that tend to be on the minds of a lot of patients.
How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?
When you have a damaged tooth or another dental issue that needs to be treated quickly, we will try to see you on the same day whenever possible. Please call us if you would like to schedule a same-day appointment; that way, you can speak directly with one of our staff members so that they can start making the necessary arrangements sooner. On top of that, if you call us, we’ll be able to give you personalized tips on protecting your mouth until your appointment so that you can prevent your emergency from growing any worse.
How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled Without Insurance?
A tooth extraction is only recommended as a last resort, but if you end up needing the procedure, it can help to have an idea of how much it might cost. In dental practices across the United States, the average cost for the procedure is somewhere between $150 and $400. Note that you may end up paying more for your extraction based on factors like the complexity of the procedure or the use of sedation. We can give you an estimate of the overall price once we have examined your smile and taken your unique dental needs into account.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
It’s ultimately better for your budget to avoid dental problems than it is to have them treated after they have already done significant damage to your mouth. As such, you should do what you can to make your dental care more affordable. You can generally do so by:
- Having reliable dental insurance.
- Signing up for our DenVantage Savings Plan.
- Breaking up the cost of necessary treatments with CareCredit financing.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
There are plenty of dental practices out there, but you’ll generally find that it’s easier to choose between them once you clearly define what you’re looking for. Most patients want an office that will take their insurance, has a convenient location, and is run by dentists with excellent credentials. Once you have found a practice that fits your needs, you can get a feel for what they’re like by looking over the dentist’s biography and checking the online reviews that they’ve received.
